You remember John Connor? The man destined to save the world from the rise of the machines? His major purpose in life was to survive Judgement Day and lead the fight against the machines after the Nuclear Holocaust.
I saw him again last night – a little older, a little fatter. Last time I saw him was in Terminator 2 – Judgement Day. This guy has a bad habit of working on nuke films where the bombs are dropped – at the moment is survival ratio is 50/50. Last night, he died, stabbed in the throat by a fat, beardie twat red neck – but in Judgement Day he survived to become a hero – of sorts.
That was the thing about the Terminator – it was way way ahead of its time. If you don’t believe me, order a pizza, rent all of the movies and sit for a day and watch the lot – back to back. the original was, I think way back in ’84 ( I can’t be arsed to divert off and check that out but it sounds about right), T2 was a good 10 years in the following, maybe more ( I really can’t be arsed to check that stat out either – but trust me). Then the others followed but the story is riveting. Think back to the 80’s. back in the day, to use a phrase that gets overused by bell ends, back in the day it was a cinematic master piece – much like Donnie Darko in 2001.
It made a storyline that really has come true and will become more relevant as time passes. Machines that take control of the planet – becoming self aware, realising that the humans who created them are their enemy and should be ‘terminated’.
Do you remember watching The Inbetweeners? anyone that has suffered the indignity of puberty could relate to just how well that was written. It’s on a par.
There – I don’t know where I was going with that, but that is enough!
All said and done, last nights 99p movie rental from the iTunes Store was worth every penny – in fact it was worth a damn site more. Aftermath – look it up and rent it – I thought it was bloody brilliant !! I like the iTunes Store for that – sometimes you get complete shite – other times, a blinding gem. It’s a no loose situation really, it’s only 99p.
Even that film ‘Rubber’ – that was complete bollocks but at 99p – bollocks is no problem right?
Now, lets welcome a recent site visitor from Canada. I don’t know much about them, they didn’t leave a message but maybe they will come back and say Hi sometime soon. Oh Canada !
Moving on to the important stuff – HOLIDAYS !!!
Yes mofo’s, Holidays are coming…..!!!!! 21st March and I hot foot it off the boat. As I have worked like a mad man for the last 3 months, they have agreed to extend my time off for another week – with no penalty for me – Hurrah for Karma ! After that, two months in Singapore before heading down to Bali for a month or so – Yes Bali….! I will be taking my dive gear and getting paid while I am there……..S-weet.
It’s about now I would like to sign off and dream about driving the Rangie around some of Warwickshire’s finest country lanes
Have a moan - the beers are on me !!
