What a cool movie. The visuals are somewhat dated, but fortunately aren't dominant.. This movie had a fairly unheralded release, it kind of slipped under the radar. I remember seeing it for the first time on cable TV, and it totally floored me. Despite being a box office flop, it's originality and story telling inspired enough of a cult status, that sequels were made, and despite the utter failure of the sequels, fans demanded enough of it that they produced a syndicated show that lasted for six years.. Lambert was definitely typecast in this movie; no matter with Clancy Brown in it without seeing The Kurgan in my head, walking through the church and licking the priest.. This film definitely shifted the way movie making was approached, and like it or not; you have most likely enjoyed something that was directly inspired by some aspect of this film.
This is a clever, if somewhat heavy handed, polemic against the traditional Judao-Christian ethos. There were times ,especially during the conversations between the two leads while driving, that had me doubled over in laughter as it unintentionally crossed over into a parody of itself. . Everything else about this series is superb.
@adonis1066 Exactly. They are two completely different monsters, as I like to say. There's really no way to compare them. They are so completely different. Honestly, if people are going to compare Sherlcok BBC and Elementary CBS, they would have to put the TV "House" in that same comparison. Although it was a medical drama, it was explicitly a modern Sherlock Holmes. House lived at 221B Baker Street in NJ.
I use firefox and have had pretty rough luck with Filenuke streams. Not sure if that weighs in on your decision or not. I have also had a few red flags from my antivirus of malicious software, but in the past certain ads have triggered that too. Especially places like Wiziwig where every ad comes with a free trojan lol
perhaps this was already suggested in some other thread, but the ability to edit/remove our comments is quite necessary... I keep making mistakes that I can't fix myself . I use want-to-watch/watched lists a lot, but they become difficult to navigate once you added too many elements... I'd like to be able to see them in a different order, at least alphabetically sort. Also smaller in size and displayed in a way, that there more items shown per page and less repetition of elements... for instance, instead of seeing the 7 seasons of a series as 7 items each one with its thumbnail, seeing just one thumbnail for that series and beneath the title, the seasons marked as want-to-watch/watched.
add altervideo.net too please.. here's one of my upload sample:. http://www.altervideo.net/video.php?ID=b3234ae8fbdd1436206c5b9d76a3c538. @anchorman . I'm sorry not trying to hijack your thread but we have same request.
@Misabel13 They thought the same thing in Europe. I did like this film and was looking forward to a sequel to. They made the ending differently than the book to be set up for a sequel.. Iam over 40 and think that the Philip Pullman books are really good. I think the BBC did a mini of one of the books.I will find out and post it here when I find it.
