    It might be rubber suit rubbish but it's a guilty pleasure. It is certainly the only Kaiju film ever to feature actors speaking in Irish.
    There’s also a (presumably accidental) “Republican” sub-text. This is, after all, the story of a young Irish monster who is captured, forcibly imprisoned, and taken (against its will) across the Irish sea to be gawked at by punters in Battersea Park. Objections to this dodgy expatriation are lodged by the Irish government (and the “University of Dublin”) and ignored. Bastards!

    University of Dublin is one of the names Trinity goes by. Not that anyone from this country uses it.

    The late Steve Carver (died last month) directs Chuck Norris kicking organised crime ass in Texas on Paramount on Sunday at 9 PM - Lone Wolf McQuade. Brilliant character cast for this sort of thing to be honest - David Carradine, Barbara Carrera, L.Q. Jones, R.G. Armstrong, Leon Isaac Kennedy, Robert Beltran and a notably Ennio Morricone style music score.

    Waterloo - The battle sequences of the film include about 15,000 Soviet foot soldiers and 2,000 cavalrymen as extras
    If it was in HD that is what would be worth watching. Other than that not much of interest.



    Tue, Feb 16 · 14:50-16:55 · 300. Film4
    The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell - cold war propaganda piece. Only mentioning it in relation to the next film. Billy bombed battleships. If he hadn't kept bombing them 'till they sank then the Navy could have measured the damage that bombs caused and taken appropriate decisions.

    Stan and Ollie (The Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly Laurel and Hardy film) is on BBC1 tomorrow (Friday) at 8.25pm

    That's an odd slot for it

    It's a BBC Film, I thought they would have shown it at Christmas


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,863 ✭✭✭ mikhail


    I'd second that one. It's a charming light comedic biopic about them touring England in their later years, clearly made with great affection for them.
