That's another one of The Hut Group's many brand names!

Well, out of the blue, Asda gave me a 20% discount day. With all my spending money tied up on Amazon purchases I didn't have a lot to spend I still went down and picked up a guilty pleasure of mine....

I'm sure there are people on here thinking WTF?! but I liked it.


Also to chip in on the man of steel debate. I like the film but don't love it. The Marvel stuff is better cinema, better though out, better scripting more faithful to the spirit of the characters and the comics they came from. Man of steel is nowhere near as bad as Green Lantern but its still a long way off getting near The Avengers, Thor 1 + 2, The Iron man films or Captain America. Even if you don't like the characters the films are better pieces of cinema. Unfortunately Zach Snyder is great at making things look pretty but when he tries to add substance it all falls apart. (watchmen does not count).

The message preview for this in Tapatalk only showed the first 8 words which I, in light of your recent work-related issues, assumed to be followed with "the sack". Glad it's not so!


I finally ordered the 2 Code Res blus last night after being paid and am hoping to get Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Arrow) and the Kenneth Anger BFI blu before leaving Manchester today


And re MoS, the main problem (aside from the head-splitting finale) was that it seemed embarrassed to be a Superman film, in line with its cooler, grittier interpretation . The problem with Superman Returns was that it was far too indebted and reverent to what had gone on before but MoS seemed to go too much the other way, ignoring or revamping too much of the mythology (Krypton with dragons? Sod off!) and having characters apologising for calling him 'Superman' in an annoyingly arch and knowing way.

Good film BoF. Have you seen it before?

Picked up the Kenneth Anger blu in Fopp as predicted but instead of Invasion of the Body Snatchers I went for the 88 Films/High Rising Productions Slice and Dice documentary. I kept meaning to pick it up at some point and it was only a fiver too which was a bonus.

That Kenneth Anger Blu is superb, Paul. :nod:

sjconstable 22nd November 2013 02:31 PM

Yup, another Kenneth Anger fan over here :)
