One thing I did do this weekend

I've been having a bit of a technical nightmare this past few weeks, which even resulted in the unheard of happening - the TiVo wasn't working properly. Actually, it was just not connecting to the TiVo service and downloading new show schedules, and I caught it before it affected much of anything, but even so, it was a frustrating weekend that even had me consulting the website for support.....

However, all working now, and I ended up messing around with stuff I don't normally - one thing was the Netflix Instant Watch stuff on the TiVo, but the other (and the reason for this post), was using my AppleTV to watch stuff on YouTube (and why does everything I use have capital T's in them??)

Anyway, I came across this short story thing - it's about 8 minutes long, but as with all good short stories, worth your time if you haven't seen it

If you're listening to this

you are the resistance. 4 full minutes of trailer for Terminator: Salvation. I might possibly get off my backside and make the first visit in a few years to the movie theater/pictures. Then again, I might just wait for the DVD as usual....

Fast and Furious 4

I guess Vin Diesel's career didn't quite pan out like he hoped, so he's back, along with Paul Walker. I fully admit to liking these movies way more than I technically should....

Finally Did It

I'm in the process of trying to end my addiction to DVD's (over 700 currently in the collection according to Delicious Library) and so have joined Netflix, where the purchasing will be replaced with a steady stream of (hopefully working) DVD's in the mail. Now I have to decide whether or not I need a new external hard drive or if my current system will hold out. Only time will tell.

Does this mean you'll stop giving me shit Nick? ;-)

Movie Studio Does Something Sensible?

Finally, it looks like one movie studio (Fox) has actually been listening to it's customers and is about to start including an iTunes (and iPod, AppleTV etc etc) copy of the movie on the DVD itself. This will save me hours of time instead of going through the usual Mac The Ripper to Handbrake to importing process that currently occupies my computers processors for large periods of their life.

Here's hoping the other movie studios do the same thing, and quickly. The amount of electricity this will save is going to be so big, we can all feel we're doing our bit for the environment and saving the world, without actually doing much at all (just like those light bulb replacements we put around the house).

So, fulfilling the marketers dream, here's a trailer

Die Hard 4 Trailer

In case you haven't seen enough sequals, here's the trailer for Die Hard 4 (or Live Free or Die Hard, as it's apparently correctly titled).

I'm actually quite looking forward to this one - the Die Hards have been one of the few movie franchises that at least matched the original, and in some cases bettered it. Here's hoping this one keeps it up.

Kiss the Ground Halle

Strangest pic of the day goes to Halle Berry. Getting a star in Hollywood apparently drove her to get to her knees and kiss the ground. At least it gets her pic back in the press - has she done any movies lately that were any good?

Jim Carey in a horror/suspense film?

Is anyone else having a hard time imagining Jim Carey playing it straight in a film? I know I am....
