    Tones, on what you point to as "continuing", what's actually going on here is a convergence of various others, like Green Lantern, Thor, et al, to become an Avengers series. Certain shared characters have already been seen, such as Samuel Jackson's secret-government-program-meister with the eye patch. I think Avengers is coming next year.

    I vaguely remember a comics series where it combined a number of super-heroes, so I guess this must be it. I was interested to see that the mechanical genuis was called Stark, as per Iron Man (which series I actually did find quite entertaining, in spite of all its improbabilities).

    Speaking of iron and improbabilities, I gather that there'll shortly be a particularly ludicrous SF film called Iron Sky, all about an invasion of Nazis from the Moon (where they went in 1945)! The trailer looks so bad that it might be good. What's especially funny is that the US President is a bespectacled woman with a folksy accent, looking not unlike a recent Vice-Presidential candidate...

    Gomorrah.

    Excellent movie of the book by Roberto Saviano. Documentary style tales of the Southern Italian crime organisation the Camorra and those unfortunate enough to become involved in their nefarious activities.

My girlfriend and I thought it poor compared to the original. We generally prefer 'World Cinema' anyway though and are enjoying Inspector Montalbano on Beeb 4 despite it's far fetched storylines.

    I've not seen the Fincher Dragon Tattoo yet, but if you like the Swedish versions, you MUST pick up the extended Millennium editions - the second and 3rd film are about 90minutes each in their theatrical release form, but the Millennium editions split both into 2, 90 minute, films each - ie they're both double the length of the theatrical releases.

    I'd read the books before seeing the films and thought it was odd that, as the series goes on, the books get bigger, but the films get shorter. They were originally broadcast on Swedish TV as 6 x 90minute episodes, so the theatrical releases were a hatchet job that left so much out...

    Not only do the Millennium editions flesh out the story so you get more involved in the subplots, they are also much more coherent than the theatricals - and they come in a nice package too!

    If you liked the theatricals, you'll LOVE the Millenniums...!

    Oh yes, there's no way I would pay to see this.

    But it is a bit of fun to totally suspend disbelief and immerse oneself in a patently ludicrous film now and then. Then again, you seem a lot more grounded than myself . . . so maybe not so much for you
    And if you play Defender, I can be your hyperspace.

    Funnily enough I enjoyed all those - especially Bronson! If you didn't like that don't try the Oz version. "Chopper"!

    Avoid "The Divide".

    Nuclear explosion rocks NYC, residents of an apartment building make it to a basement shelter and survive, only to melt down psychologically and tear at one another.

    I was attracted to the N-drama subject matter but in case you are too, trust me, this was utter drivel. Pish of the lowest order and one to avoid.

    It is incredibly silly. Think of it to space/SF fims as Airplane is to disaster films and you won't go far wrong.
    Be excellent to each other. And... PARTY ON, DUDES!
