    But as an aside to anyone that's got Hannibal on preorder and hasn't actually seen it yet...please...rent it first. It looks beautiful, as all Ridley Scotts films do, but it lacks a plot, dramatic tension, in fact anything you'd expect to find present in it. It's diabolical.

    Castaway is sitting at a neighbours house ( who has now gone out ) cos the postman did not want to wake me up.

    I HATED Hannibal when I read the novel, I thought it was the trashiest book I had ever read, but I actually liked the film, the ending could have been tweaked a little more but at least it was not the rubbish book ending

    Two things I would like to say on all the above:

    Unbreakable. Some have slated it yet most have ordered it.


    Monkeybone. Has no one heard of this?
    It stars Brendan Fraser and Briggite Fonda and has loads of SFX. It is produced by Fox and out on DVD in July.

    I dunno how good or bad it is but I have seen the trailer and it looks OK. Sorta like a Roger Rabbit.

    Hi,

    The only two titles I have on order (well, paid for in full, in advance) is:

    Akira: Special Limited Tin Edition
    and the
    Die Hard Trilogy: Special THX Edition

    Obviously, I am not in the same leagues as most of you lot, judging by some of your posted lists! :)

    Oh, and this is for Mysterious Jimmy: you may well be waiting a long, long time for the "Legend: Special Edition" as it seems to have been postponed indefinitely. Don't know why, but....

    I, too, had this title on pre-order, but cancelled it, after waiting for 4 months. (It was suppossed to be out around Jan 4th this year!!!!) Shame, because I love the film, and think it is one of the best fantasy films made, even if the script and acting aren't that good.

    Pooch
