I'm going to see it, for no other reason than me and some mates saw the Fresh Prince himself filming it in New York in October last year. He was toting some sort of enormous firearm and limping his way down Madison Avenue towards St Patricks Cathedral. Looked quite odd at the time sans all the speccy effects they have no doubt added to the scene.

The thing that strikes me as surprising is the lead time on these Hollywood blockbusters, given that was a good 14 months ago.

You sure that was F.P Bel-Air and not a gangsta rapper?

Merry Christmas Teach.
Can't do the prosperous New Year thing, because I reckon the Dees will be crapola again. And the New Clean Eags will, as always, be thereabouts.

Bah! Hum! Bug! For youze deluded Eagles fans, the Ghost Of Cousins Past will linger for years.

Wishing you a Crippy Crimble dear Tony.

Are you sure this isn't the dean jones story.

Thanks, A, same to you.

J: More like Tubby Taylor emerging from a slump with a fighting century in Central Park.

I'd love to see Will Smith dead in a fountain just for that I Robot rubbish. No one beats Heston, scoffing double malts, playing chess and blowing away some zombie leper freaks at will.

Merry Christmas Tony. May you enjoy the day of the Alpha and Omega. All the best to you and yours. Cheers!

Omega was, is, one of the enduring memories of my childhood. There is no other. "Cheese-Fest"?!?! Bah, humbug. "Omega Man" and "Vanishing Point"? Two of my Dad's favorite films. Legend.

Have a good one, Tones.

Ditto, tONY. My aunt had the film on video and we watched it several times while going to Newcastle for Christmas holidays.

The Omega man does not, however, bear any intentional resemblance to Omega, a Doctor Who supervillain who lives in a black hole, is able to conquer planets with the sheer force of his will, and attempts to drain all of the energy out of the universe (doesn't everyone?)

Saw the film on Boxing Day (pirated DVD), and it was worth a look. But I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic stuff. I'm dying to respond to your imputed spoilers, bu that'd spoil the film for youse puntes - suffice it to say, it's not quite as dire as all that. In fact, there may even be a bit of a surprise (I was quite gratfifed by one element of it, anyway).

BTW - having written all of that: not a great film, but a servicable waste of about an hour and a half.

I'm sure it will be an enjoyable romp but from I've heard, this cinematic version, like all the others, still chickens out when it come the punch line of the original book WHICH WAS WRITTEN IN 1954! SHOW SOME FUCKING BALLS FOR ONCE HOLLYWOOD BEFORE THE UNDEAD BITE THEM OFF. Oh! too late I see.

Hmm, perhaps I should lie down now with a Bex AND A FUCKING BIG SHOTTIE STRAPPED TO MY ROTTWEILIER SO I CAN BLOW AWAY AND THEN MAUL THE CORPSES OF PENCIL -DICKED HOLLYWOOD PRODUCTION EXES WHO ALWAYS WIMP OUT ON THE REAL ENDING.

Is that a joint? Thanks.
