End of the day for '24'

End of the day for '24' - Entertainment News, TV News, Media - Variety

I love 24 but I am pleased it has been cancelled. They really do seem to have lost their way over the past few seasons and this years plot is so bad that we would probably not bother watching a ninth season.

One has to wonder if they would be carrying on if they had given the viewers what they want to see, which is Jack killing people in amusing ways, Jack torturing people, Jack being tortured and then coming back and killing/torturing the baddies who tortured him. You get the idea.....

Instead what we have had is Jack spending 2 or 3 episodes sat in a car following some mad bint around while she goes all weepy and 'My life's not worth living'. Do us a favour love, here's a gun, go sort yourself out.

Anyway, season 3 was the best and 6, 7 and 8 are pants.

Goodbye Jack. You will be missed.

Michael Jackson estate agrees record Sony music deal

BBC News - Michael Jackson estate agrees record Sony music deal

Isn't he dead?

How can it be a 10 record deal with only 1 album of unreleased material? Sony aren't rehashing old material are they? Surely not!

3D Cinema - What A Con!

Alice wants me to take her to the cinema to see the new Alice In Wonderland film. This I don't mind as I like Tim Burton films and although I don't like going to the cinema due to there being other people there watching the film it is an exciting trip for Alice which makes it worth going.

Alice in Wonderland is showing in 3D. I have not been to the cinema to see a 3D film since Jaws 3D and thought this would be a good re-introduction.

I logged onto the Cineworld website to check show times etc and was shocked to see that it cost £9 for an adult and £6.70 for a child to see a 3D film plus 80p for a pair of 3D glasses. A frickin tenner to see a film!!

You can see the 2D version for £4.70.

What a rip-off! I am not sure how current 3D projection technology works but let's face it, the cost is going to be a couple of new projectors at most and the fact that the film is in 3D will mean that more people will come to see it, paying for the cost. Charging double to see the same film AND charging 80p for glasses to actually allow you to watch the film you have paid to see is a massive con.

What the cinemas need to remember is that 3D is the current trend but it may (as it has several times in the past, it is not a new technology) fade into obscurity and people will no longer pay such stupid amounts to see a film.

What people seem to also be forgetting is that if a film is good it will be good in 3D or 2D. Special effects will not make a bad film good.

Now, I wonder why film piracy is soaring? Can anyone think?

Alice In Wonderland

Alice has to go to school dressed as a character from a book tomorrow and she is going as Alice In Wonderland.

How cute does she look? I thought I would share the picture with you all so that you can all see how lovely my eldest daughter is. :-)

BBC News - Lords rebuff Mandelson call for Ashcroft inquiry

BBC News - Lords rebuff Mandelson call for Ashcroft inquiry

Mandelson needs to keep quiet as an inquiry would surely show how many Labour peers are non-doms!

What I want an inquiry on is how come the Torys only have a small lead in the polls when they are up against the worst government in this countries history, and I include the previous Labour government when I say that and they were pretty bad!

I know Cameron is a bit of a pratt but he's up against Brown for fucks sake!

Sony: Don't turn on your PS3 until PSN bug is fixed

Sony: Don't turn on your PS3 until PSN bug is fixed -- Engadget

How stupid can you get? The Sony PlayStation Network goes down and they tell people not to turn on their consoles as they might suffer data loss.

Whatever happened to 'It's a console so it just works'.

This is just one of the many reasons I never buy Sony.
