Re: AVATAR trailers are out

SPOILERS AHEAD. You have been warned. So I finally got around to watching Avatar last night and I think the phrase I used to sum it up as we walked out of the cinema was “ Dances with Smurfs ”. I’d been avoiding Chris’ review until after I’d seen it myself and oddly enough that seems to be pretty m...

Octoberfest 2009 - anime all nighter

So, what did you all think of the line up?

Five UK premieres in a row, including one that's not even out in Japan yet, has got to have been well worth the money. :D

Can't wait to see what SFL9's allnighter will hold.

Re: Anime's most outstanding episodes

What are some good anime for young viewers besides the older stuff? As an anime fan, my little brother wants to get in on the scene, but my dad's a bit anal about what he watches. I was wondering what some more recent animes are that are good for his age-group that I might enjoy watching as well : ...

Re: october fest 2009 anime all nighter

There's another movie added to the anime all-nighter's line up in the form of Eureka Seven - Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers. Which is one hell of a scoop as it's only just come out in Japan!

Re: october fest 2009 anime all nighter

King of Thorn is back in the pack. Yay! :D

The stand up show before the all-nighters looks mighty tempting as well.

Re: The Dates of Octoberfest

Plus if you're coming from a ways away just for the Expo you can always come to the allnighter so you don't need to worry about booking a hotel room :twisted: Very true. Also, an all-nighter ticket's cheaper than a hotel room and you'd be hard pressed to find a hotel that does free Red Bull and ice...

Can anyone say "Beowulf"? A good idea, badly executed, that ran out of steam about halfway through. Even Angelina Jolie (practically) naked in 3D couldn't save that woofer.
