Some funny links...

Not much going on at the moment so thought I'd post some amusing/interesting links.

First off, I am obsessively checking the MTI website for news of the Ten Dead Men US DVD and we now have a release date of 27/01/09, some badly photoshopped cover art (which the website insists is not final - let's hope not!) and optional Spanish subtitles! Still, it feels a lot more definite now and I'm glad that the release is not too far off. There's no direct link to the page but we're in the release schedule under January.

The always excellent Poundland website has been updated here with a genuinely creepy glimpse at the Poundland version of Johnny Depp.

Brother Pete posted some excellent trailers in response to my previous post here. I am considering constructing some kind of meme around good & bad trailers, but mainly because I keep thinking of good ones. Although none of them beat the Hills Have Eyes 2 trailer.

I finally got around to listening to the AMR Commando Special which you can download here. It's impressive stuff and worth listening to whether you're a fan of the film or not as there are some fantastic insights into 1980s Hollywood from Commando stars Vernon Wells and Rae Dawn Chong.

Finally, I should probably refrain from posting Adam & Joe songs every week or it will turn into a fan page, but this song is a) the best Bond theme ever and b) sums up Quantum of Solace perfectly:

Love Joe's Bond theme, best one I've heard for a while. Do you think some of the samples are from the Goldeneye video game? That alarm at the end sounds very familiar...

Hadn't thought about that but it's very possible. It is the best theme ever - if they put it on the film it would improve it by 200%

It doesn't look too bad at first, then you look a bit closer and think 'Why is his head floating? And why does he have a cartoon shotgun?'
