The Dirty Harry Films / Sudden Impact: Final shot
« on: November 15, 2006, 06:23:11 AM »
Ok so i was wathcing Sudden Impact last night and at the very end just before the credits roll, Callahan puts his arm around/behind Sondra Locke and they move away, as they begin to move away the camera pulls back and we see the .44 auto Magnum tucked into the front of harrys pants, my question is
Is there a man alive apart from Harry Callahan brave enough to stick a 44 magnum down the front of his pants?

Poor John Lennon would have been 66 today if he had survived naturally,
now in ireland(and i'm guessing england as we always just copy them) thats the retirement and pensionable age  so thanks to gordon browne he could have travelled for free on all public transport(england copied us on this one, we've had it for nearly 3 decades.)

anyway radio had a nice little tribute in some of their shows, one of my favourite DJs played Twist and shout followed by sean lennons new song, followed by beautiful boy.

anyway would have been nice to see what he would have gotten up to for a celebration, it makes you wonder would he still be working too, or would he retire, i'd imagine as long as Paul was churning out records so too would John be.

Off-Topic Discussion / Best Movie Death Scene
« on: February 20, 2006, 06:21:39 AM »
we ran a competition on saturday to give away tickets to final destination 3 (don't go) but the distributor suggested the competition title, it was tell us your favourite death scenes,
so i was wondering seeing as we have so many movie fans on the boards, what do you think isthe best death scene in a movie, just through personal choice, i'm not asking for justification.


i'll go first to get it going...

Eastwood News / Clint scores High in Empire Magazine
« on: January 01, 2006, 06:44:35 AM »
Empire Magazine have just released their 200th issue, one of the features they have inside it is "200 things that have rocked our world" basically 200 cool things they covered since their first issue, Unforgiven is no.11, most things are angelinas pout or nicholsons "you can't handle the truth", even the number 1 was the lord of the rings legacy, now, admittedly i haven't reas it fully yet but it looks like unforgiven is the only entire film, everything else is people, or twists or scenes etc, unforgiven is in as one whole thing , seems impressive to me.
and i know KC would like it.
i'll type out the bit from Clinyt in the mag later, it's nothing new, it's only a rehash of an interview from unforgivens release

Australia 100 - 64 Ireland
we got an authentic australian style ass whoppin
well you deserved it, and i can't say i'm totally sad, australia were great to watch , and on a regional note, some players on the ireland team have been noted for their heavy handed tactics while on county duty, it's a big debate point here, that armagh and tyrone are just filthy players who play the man instead of the ball, so it was great to see them try that with the AFL guys caus the AFL lads just bashed anyone that messed with them. ;D
we have it all to do in the second test, i hope we can at least make the scoreline respectable the aussies have been dieing to do that to us since last years games.

Off-Topic Discussion / Brosnan for bond ?????
« on: September 27, 2005, 10:33:14 AM »
ITV.co.uk
posted an interview recently where pierce reveals that the studio were asking him to come back recently, he reckons it's a clash betwen the producers(who are total idiots in my opinion for the way they've let the franchise get so poor) and Sony (who now own MGM) and want him back.
the only trouble i have with him coming back is Paul haggis has reportedly stated he's writting bond as a 28 year old man, pierce therefore in my eyes is too old fo rthe role

Brosnan's Bond theory
Pierce Brosnan suspects James Bond movie makers are using the mystery surrounding the identity of the next 007 as a publicity stunt.

Brosnan was dropped from the role after the last movie Die Another Day – but this weekend revealed he is still in the race to wear the superspy's trademark tuxedo when filming begins on the 21st Bond film Casino Royale in January.

He now joins an ever-changing shortlist of actors tipped for the role, currently including Daniel Craig - but Brosnan suspects producers are using the hype surrounding the role to drum up publicity for the forthcoming film.
He says, "Maybe it is all a big, clever ploy, just to bang the drum.

"We've seen it over the years with Sean (Connery) and Roger (Moore).

"Sony are pulling their hair out over it, apparently.

"I was in their offices just a few weeks ago, pitching Thomas Crown (Affair) 2.

"They said, 'Come back,' and I said, 'It's not up to me, guys.'
 
"I think I was just caught up between the egos of the producers and the studios, really."

Off-Topic Discussion / Mo Mowlam M.P. R.I.P.
« on: August 19, 2005, 03:07:31 PM »
The former nothern irish secretary Mo Mowlam has passed on today aged 55, she was instrumental in moving the Northern Irish peace process forward.


to be honest i think everyone will ignore any political oppertunism to come and pay tribute to a wonderful politician. she seemed to understand that what was important was the people behind the politics and not the words used.

i often paraphrase a quote from braveheart when talking about politicians
"you think the people exist to provide you with position where as i think your position exists to provide for those people"
mo mowlam is one of the few people who knew that her position existed to provide for the people, she knew it was a vocation not a career, and that it was people dealing with issues affecting people, she's a sad loss.

Off-Topic Discussion / ticket touts
« on: April 16, 2005, 01:55:29 AM »
i wanted to go to the upcoming springsteen concert in dublin, (he's only playing one show in a small little 6000 seater theatre)when i went online to buy the tickets i couldn't get any from the ticket distributor and found out that all the tickets sold out in 60 seconds :'(, however on ebay the tickets are selling at double and treble their face value, in one example two tickets (cost €85 each or £116sterling) were selling for £650 sterling from some guy in ipswich england (he didn't want to go to the concert just sell the tickets at astronomical prices). that auction has closed but there's one here
going for £390 sterling at the moment. >:(
surely there is some way to stop this rip off. ticket distributors should not be allowed to sell to addresses outside the country... if you want to buy from outside the country then surely there should be some agency you have to use like the concert promoter. basically what i'm getting at is the boss is coming to dublin to do a concert for his irish fans, how come people from outside ireland got so many tickets.(btw  i'm guessing this happens in other countries too)

one of the main things i want to ask is, Does this happen in ther states or your country and if not how do you stop it?

and have you missed a concert thanks to illegal ticket touting
