By far the nicest, best kept, course I've played, but they should all be tearing it apart, it's far from the toughest course. The fairways are miles wide, the rough is very kind and the greens are massive. My local muni is a far harder round.

Nice one Yant. Do PM me if you want to hear me endlessly batter on about my round at Bay Hill.

Lollers at Wexit! lol

Erm... The Sky coverage of this is 'Seleted Groups' only...

What channels / streams do I need to be looking at for full coverage? NBC?

Afraid not Edward, have a a couple of sinkers lined up next month though. Hold tight for feedback!

Very easy weekend here, watching the golf, watching the rugby, possibly walking up a hill somewhere in North Wales at some point.

Kid's film?  You're shitting me?!  Way too much allegorical themes and violence to be for kids.

Okay, maybe not kids film, but it didn't take it's self too seriously, a bit like Robocop / Predator etc. The tone of Alien (certainly the first one) is a bit more serious, less fantastical. No? the dialogue doesn't let your man Sharlto Copley put in a John Hurt / Ian Holm style performance.

Darkly humorous with special emphasis on apartheid and race relations in general.  Sharleton's transformation from bumbling, xenophobic corporate puppet to champion of prawns was nothing short of brilliant.  Reflective, pensive, and with a maturing attribute of empathy, he played the character brilliantly.  A physical, emotional, and  psychological gauntlet that was exquisitely directed and edited.  Innovative, clever, and believable -  District 9 is one of the best sci-fi movies of the past 10 years.   It's in my top 10 sci-fi movies of all time.

At this point Ghosty, we're going to have to agree to disagree.

That's what he replied when a fan asked him about it a few months ago.  Never say never, but considering what he did with District 9, it would have been great as opposed to the hackneyed shit that Scott puts out.

Not convinced, District 9 was a bit of a kids film, not sure he could pull off a proper Alien film.

Neil Blomkampf was supposed to do a sequel to Aliens - ignoring Alien 3 and Resurrection completely.  Michael Bein and Sigourney were in board, but with the success of Prometheus, 20th Century Fox didn't want to step on Scott's toes.

has the Blomkampf film been shelved completely then?

..just wouldn't seem right cutting out the Alien 3 storyline. These "ideas" are just as bad as cheesey remakes. Glad 20th century fox canned the idea. Hicks & Newt died, let's just leave it at that.

Yeah, well swerved imo.

I trust you all know what went on with David Fincher and Alien 3, right?

Just realised I have the Assembly cut of Alien 3 on blueray but have never watched it... might box that off one night this week.

That's defo a better cut. If they sorted out the shit cgi, it could be considered a decent instalment.

Blueray with all the deleted scenes answers most of the missing bits and makes it more coherent etc...

...Scott had free reign on this apparently, so why in the fuck he left bits out and then put them on the bluray is beyond me, I can only assume he does it on purpose to fuck with everyone like some sort of editorial sadism.

That said, I don't want too much of it explaining to me, that direction leads to midichlorians and the downfall of a favourite childhood franchise that can never be saved, ever.

The internet tells me that the 'Prometheus sequel' as it was meant to be, had other writers dragged in on it to give it a rewrite. So instead of a 'true' sequel, where Shaw and David go to the Engineers planet, as promised at the end of Prometheus, and you discover more about the Engineers and the expanded universe etc, as promised/described by Scott in interviews. You now have a film that carries on from Prometheus, but has been rewritten to include all the standard Alien stuff. Shaw and David's Juggernaut ship has crashed on a planet (possibly the Engineers home world), the ship had an Alien of some form on it, colonists from Earth happen to land on that planet or are lured to it, and do battle with the Aliens.

Essentially the Alien fanboys won and you have another standard Alien film. Load of stinky cunt imo. Fuck Hollywood.

..I've read that 3 or 4 times and I'm still scratching my head. What's the problem here? If it was just about the expanded universe and the engineers people would still be giving out. If you're a fan of the movies just go watch the movie. All these pre-reviews are nonsense.

I think it's that people see an opportunity to do an interesting thing, and then see it being scrapped for lowest common denominator shite. You think your getting a GU, and then you get The Ultimate Happy Hardcore Album: Mixed By Dougal & Vibes.

New Mario looks pony, will be giving it all a swerve until some other titles start coming through.

Loving the final for the dancing girls, and the fact that everyone is well fucked from the last fight lol

Immediately makes me think of something from Running Man or the like.

Anyway, he's been beaten to it already:

Studio mixes tend to be a bit more considered and generally have more longevity. No disrespect to John's weekly radio mixes, but non of them are of the strength of MMII or a GU etc.

I'm just not convinced these 'Live in' are for me, the last two have gone almost straight into storage... Any plans for a studio mix any time in the near future John?

I'd watch it over Alien 3 & 4 any day of the week.
