Just went to look at the boards and then noticed they were gone. :slol:

It's a shame, it was always a good place to go after seeing a film to check other people's views or query something in the plot, etc. I'm not aware of any other boards where every film has its own board and associated comments. Fair enough they want to stop negative comments and abuse etc, but that always seemed minimal to me compared to the relevant comments.

In the last year it had become impossible to discuss any blockbuster film. The boards were just full of trolls talking about Mary sues and fighting amongst marvel and dc fanboys even if the film was star wars or completely unrelated to them.

Ah, I don't really watch your typical 'blockbusters', so I probably didn't see that side of it. A shame nonetheless.

Just read that Jurassic Park 2 is going to be filmed in Slough Langley to be exact

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/item/a17d ... rassicPark

Apparently bosses at a Slough business park have been sent a letter saying filming will take place there on Thursday for the latest instalment in the Jurassic Park series.
And according to the letter published on Jurassic Outpost, another 11 days of filming are set to take place there before the end of June.

Surprised to hear they're going for a post-apocalyptic setting.

The Office with Dinosaurs. I like it!

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Maybe that will start a trend of setting films in random places.
Maybe the new Tomb Raider film could be set in under Birmingham Library where they find a long forgotten and huge temple. There they find writing that leads them to another tomb under Plymouth and then onto Larkhall in Scotland.

US audiences will be thrilled.

Ghostbusters (1984)

This was posted on a Ghost Corps' Facebook page

It's time for another #TBT vault find! These reels came from a box in Ivan's personal storage and we're pretty excited to have uncovered some unreleased scenes! #Ghostbusters

I was quite happy until it got to the point where the alien was trying to headbutt it's way through the glass, that looked strawberry floating rubbish.

Where have I seen a movie where a bunch of people go to colonise a planet, find a crashed alien ship, manage to get random person infected and then all hell breaks loose?!

There's something "off" about that Alien at 2.22.

I think it's the fact it's moving like the "Aliens onwards" Xeno morphs, but it's "built" like the Alien bulkier, more muscled/manish Xeno.

This, looks intense :toot:

And I have no issue with the alien head butting glass. Have we all forgotten how they bashed their heads again the locked door in Aliens during the Operations firefight?

It's not that it headbutted the glass. It's that the special effect looked strawberry floating awful in that scene.
