Your talk show?

Your talk show? Has been taken off the air? For gratuitous racism in the Sunday Express?

So no Kilroy next week, and we all get an extra half hour in bed before Trisha. His crime was to claim that Arab countries have given the world nothing. Yet, according to my vague memories of an old Horizon programme, Arab mathematicians did introduce to the West the numerical concept of zero.

Perhaps that’s what he meant.

Sarah is right. I have seen Virus.

Sarah is right. I have seen Virus. I took a couple hours off of work to see this godforesaken Alien rip-off (starring Jamie Leigh Curtis as Sigourney Weaver). Most notable for Donald Sutherland being the ripest, most mature, smoked old ham you will ever see. Technovirus on ship movie, including pointless storms, laughable effects and Sutherland Senior being transformed in to the monster by virtue of the dressing up box of a five year old. Put it this way, when you are dressing up as a machine, a little bit of tin foil goes a very, very long way.

No doubt like every other right-thinking publogger, I find this a blatant bit of bandwagon jumping…

What about the other 51 weeks of the year, eh? Part-timers, the lot of ’em…

Independence Day. Isn’t it marvellous? Hurrah hurrah let’s kill the stripper and those hippies! That’s the kind of morals I WANT from my films! Until the aliens bugger up by deciding just to kill EVERYBODY. Where’s the subtlety, the art, the je ne sais quoi indeed about that? Who cares when we have plucky heroes like Will Smith! He wears a vest! Jeff Goldbum! He wears glasses and is nerdy for Hollywood! And Bill Pullman as Mister President himself. Unfortunately I keep reading “Hitler” for “Hiller”, but I’m sure that’s not what the film intended. Is it? Surely not.

EITHER WAY biff kapow “oh no they have shields”! Well duh, they’re space aliens with 15 mile long ships, do you think they might have shields? We’ve grown up on Star Trek whether we like it or not and we KNOW how these things work. Implausibility in the ranks also rears it’s gooey head (why are all evil aliens gungey? ans: they are in league with Dick and Dom in da Bungalow who WE ALL KNOW are extra-terrestials) when J. Goldbum and W. Smith fly into the Alien’s Big House.
