Trailers, Quotes and a 2005 Tape Tale

‘Geostorm’ trailer
Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Andy Garcia and Ed Harris star in this action flick that looks good. This has been on the shelf for years apparently. Extreme weather threatens the world. There is a bigger international space station and regular space travel. Weather is controlled and Andy Garcia is the POTUS. There is ecstatic behavioural and someone weaponises weather. Didn’t they do this in ‘Superman III’? A plane crashes into a city and a tidal wave strikes.

Best Line:
“We’re kidnapping the president in a self driving cab.”

The Great Wall’ clip
A battle scene with soldiers in different colour armour and weaponised bungee jumping. Why all the drums? Arrows are fired and the crane corps have a high attrition rate. There are monsters and Matt Damon. Mmmmm.

‘Hex’ promos

‘Battlestar Galactica’ promo

‘Stargate Atlantis’ promo
So much promise, all thrown away. The wraith were crap.

‘Dumb & Dumber To’ promo

‘Alive’ (1993) promo

Dairy free chocolate frozen yogurt with gummi bears - okay.
Fresh OJ - delightful.
Feta with oregano & Sicilian lemon - okay.
Mojito juice drink - yum.
Watermelon chill - okay.
Cornish cruncher extra mature cheddar - okay.

The ‘Stranger Things 2’ poster looks good.

They made a film of ‘The Ritual’? I disliked the book so won’t bother.

Recall ‘Dogtanian and The Three Muskehounds’? Or the 1986 ‘Running Scared’?

I remember being on the Algarve years ago - there was a lethal slide in a playground.

Anyone see ‘Death Valley’ (1982)? Or ‘Berserker’ (1987)? Or ‘Doom Asylum’ (1987)? Or ‘Ice Cream Man’ (1995)? Or ‘Out Of The Dark’ (1988)? Or ‘The Prowler’ (1981)? Or ‘The Baby Doll Murders’ (1992)? Or ‘Evil Laugh’ (1986)? Or ‘Escape From The Planet Of The Apes’ (1971) or ‘Beneath The Planet Of The Apes’ (1970)? Or the 1992 ‘That Thing You Do!’?

I saw some of the ‘Marple’ ep ‘4:50 From Paddington’ which starred Jenny Agutter, John Hannah, Amanda Holden, Michael Landes, Griff Rhys-Jones and David Warner. There is a comedy waiter on a train and an old biddy witnesses a murder on a passing train in preposterously unlikely fashion. Ugly hats are worn and police mock the old biddy with noxious indifference. People look for the body and encounter a mad family.

Best Lines:
“So many of our big houses are being sold off.”

“Fall off the twig.”

“Sheer tawdriness.”

“Sugar on me kippers.”

“Touching up 2 senoritas and a donkey.”

“You snotty little pup!”

“3 feet of it behind the municipal swimming pool.”

I will review ‘Now I Rise’, ‘Final Girls’ and ‘Gwendy’s Button Box’.

I won’t review ‘Do Not Become Alarmed’.

I’d try candied roses.

‘Let The Blood Run Free’ Quote:
“You are here to pick excrement off the floor.”

‘The Irish Times’ Quotes:
“Uncharged individual.”

“Difficult, modestly paid productions.”

“Reasoned and deep thinkers.”

“Couldn’t get arrested on TV.”

“Not perceived as a norm, or moral.”

“An axe-wielding man who emerged from a graveyard.”

“Consider their union a mistake.”


“Bog-standard house.”

“Dogged by years of opposition.”

‘Sky News’ Quotes:
“Lack of trust.”

“Disliked living figures in British politics.”

“Try to exclude the parents.”

“Profound moral.”

‘Eastenders’ Quote:
“This ain’t a dosshouse”

Sanctuary’ Quotes:
“I know. Everytime.”

“After events.”

“Scorch the earth behind them.”

“You are a cold man.”

“Dead sectors.”

‘FTWeekend’ Quotes:
“Apparently he meant that in bad way.”

“It’s hard to make out from the documented record what the problem actually was.”

“Be as uninformative as possible.”

“Wild boar wurst.”

“You have to get a bus to get a bus.”

“Words of war.”

“Be quieter. Behave.”

“Testimony has been ignored, dismissed and disbelieved.”

“The bedridden King’s huge wig, like two poodles clamped to each side of his head.”

“Bad for future mothers.”

Cleared out a 2005 tape. It began with a ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ ep ‘Sacrifice part 2’ in which Ares, Dahak, Hope and Callisto run around. Than Joxer shows up. This was a bunch of sound and fury signifying nothing. This was a ghastly mess full of characteristically unhinged discontent. Then came a ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ ep ‘Ted’ which guest starred John Ritter. Joyce dates Ted (Ritter). I could care less. Ritter looms menacingly and this was unvalued.

Then came a ‘Forever Knight’ ep ’Dead Of Night’ which had big hair, badly fitting clothes and Kari Matchett guest starred. There is a haunted house but no moody sparseness or musings on the melancholy of memory. There is babbling about a reverse medium house and closure. This was full of babbling and it was not consequential.

Best Line:
He fell. He died.”

Then there was an ’SG1’ ep ’Lifeboat’ which was full of yelling and over-acting. I can’t even feign concern.
