Battlestar Galactica Season 3 Finale SPOILERS

Ok if in case you didn’t read the title of this post, it has the word spoiler in it for a reason, not interested in finding out what has happened on the end of the third season then pretty please with a cherry on top go somewhere else and you don’t ever need to blame […]

Dining in Hell - 300 reviewed

Frank Miller’s 300 had my money several times over from the moment I heard it was going to be made. Then came the trailer and I nearly came in my pants several times over (I know not a pretty vision but at least I’m being truthful). Then I shared the trailer with Stathi and Christos […]

300 preview

It’s only a month and a half away before the movie of the year gets released, check out the teaser preview (mostly stuff from the previous trailers but there are a couple more schene to look at. Oh yeah, if you’re worried about spoilers, well don’t just go out and buy the damn book, it’s […]

Movies Review of 2006

As I continue my review of 2006, go read part 1 if you want to find out my thoughts on The best of the Net 2006, I’m turning my attention to movies. Interestingly I think this year has been one of the worst years for movies in a really long time. That isn’t to say that I haven’t enjoyed a good number of movies this year, it’s just that I found less time for movies this year, which I can probably attribute to the lack of quality flicks being shown this year.

The Prestige

The Prestige, the new Christopher Nolan movie is like getting Christmas early. I mean how could the following ingredients possibly disappoint. You get Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson, Michael Caine, David Bowie all in one movie, set in turn of the century London, revolving around magicians and the ultimate magic trick.

Seeing as how becoming […]

Battlestar Galactica Season 3

I’ve been meaning to talk about the latest season of Battlestar Galactica since it began airing 3 weeks ago now. For all those who don’t know what I’m talking about, go here and read (which reminds me I really should go back to my old posts and format them accordingly, how embaressing). Without a shadow of a doubt the great TV show that is currently on the air. Groundbreaking in many ways and essentially just a damn good story.

Transformers Trailer

The transformers trailer actually looks pretty damn good. This might be pretty old news but I hadn’t heard anything about it on the net.

Democracy Platform

Democrcy Internet TV Platform - in all it’s open sourcy goodness. Just in time for the new Battlestar Galactica series (how the hell did so many months go by since season 2 ended, it really does seem like an eternity), the new My Name is Earl series and the new Lost series (still need to […]

300 Promo Trailer

Update: This seems to have been taken down from Youtube. It was only a matter of time really. But then again you can’t keep things like this off the net for too long. So I’m sure another link will surface at some point (Movie is set for a 7th March release).

I’ve watched this trailer three […]

Pixar’s Cars

A new Pixar animation is generally cherished over here in Casa Broken Kode; then again do you blame me? After all they ’sand the underside of the drawer’ (it’s a policy they have at Pixar regarding how much car and attention they give to their movies). The last couple of features from Pixar have been […]

Dead Man’s Chest

Saw ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest’ yesterday. Got me some thoughts about it, but as you can expect I’m going to be talking about story details, so consider this your SPOILER WARNING. Don’t look further if you’ve not seen this movie yet.

Yahoo’s Summer Movie Guide

In case you missed it (because I did until very recently), Yahoo’s now got a nice Summer Movie Guide set up. The movies I’m most excited about are: Cars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Clerks II, Superman Returns and Over the Hedge. Should I be looking out for anything else?


Go buy the DVD version of an open-source movie? Open source as in you’ve got full access to all the elements that went into making the movie. I know sounds completely crazy but very cool at the same time. I’ve been waiting for this for a good long while, ever since I heard about it […]

Superman Returns Trailer 2

Just finished watching the latest trailer for the Superman Returns movie and I’ve got to say that Bryan Singer seems to have HIT the nail on the head. He’s actually made this character seem like a great deal of fun. There’s a certain optimism in the entire trailer and the fact that the characters are […]


I was meaning to write about this last week but I got caught up in other things and once again missed reviewing this movie. It’s not a new movie, however it holds a special place with me as it’s my feel good movie. It’s the movie I watch on a Sunday when I’m slightly depressed […]

firefly Season 2

Not really what I was hoping to hear, but the Firefly Season 2 news that has been making the rounds, doesn’t seem to be anything but a lot of hot air and one fan’s dream. It’s nice that he likes it so much and stranger things have happened but I doubt we’re likely to see […]

Character Shots

…meanwhile if you’re interested in what Lois Lane will look like look no further than Just Jared. Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor is easily the best thing they could have possibly done. Inspired casting if you ask me.

In keeping with the X-men theme of late, from Joblo (thanks to The Beat), we’ve got some pictures […]

X3 Trailer

Go have a look at it. Yeah I know something you would expect this sort of thing over at Splash Panel but like I said the content there is SOO specific that it just doesn’t fit in there. So checking out this trailer all I can say is that I like the fact that all […]

Sky Blue

Empire describes it as “Akira for the 21st Century” but watching this movie reminded me more of the mid 90s when I first watched Ghost in the Shell. Sky Blue apparently took 7 years to create. To say it’s spectacular sounds to me like to do a diservice to the amount of painstaking detail that […]

Superman Returns Trailer

The Superman Returns teaser trailer is up and it did give me goosebumps. Mainly the Marlon Brando voice to be honest. The music was completely spot on, created all the atmosphere I could have hoped for. I will echo a couple of comments I’ve heard online about the fact that it doesn’t really look like […]


Saw this movie last week, but due to various problems, it’s taken this long to talk about. Just to warn everyone



Right from the start of this movie you […]

Revolve This

I’m going to do you two favours with this post, so I’m hoping you all send some love my way. This can be in the shape of money donations or buy me something from Amazon, I’m not too fussy. The two things I’m going to save you are TIME, which as we all know we […]

Howl’s Moving Castle

Finally saw Howl’s Moving Castle yesterday. Laurent and I have been talking about watching this on the big screen for nearly a year now, as we’re both MASSIVE Miyazaki fans. In fact coming to think about it, I don’t think you can possibly watch a Miyazaki movie and not become a fan of his. Every […]

Leon - Special Edition

Every once in a while you see something, read something, hear something that takes you back a few years and you start remembering all sorts of things in your life that seem to be from a different world; you were a different person, the world around you was completely different. The memory is so vivid […]

Robotech Comic & Anime

I’ve not been keeping up with my Robotech it would seem. To be honest 3 years ago when Tommy Yune (a brilliant Amerimanga artist/writer) was appointed as the ‘custodian’ of the Robotech methos I was just as excited as any kid who used to watch Robotech in the 80s would be; life was being pumped […]


ONG-BAK. The best MAN-FLICK I’ve seen in a very long while.It’s completely RAW and the fact that it was done without all the wires and cgi that is found in every single martial arts type movie this is a massive fresh of breath air.

V for Vendetta

One of the very few Alan Moore graphic novels I’ve not had the chance to sit down and read. I know, shocking. I’m an absolute Alan Moore nut. Even on a day of bad digestion where he’s trying to knock off a few pages to get some money (to feed his cats) and while […]

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

I don’t play computer games. Takes too much of my very precious time. I’ve got a list the size of my arm in terms of things I want to do that playing video games just seems like a complete and utter waste. However the only PS game I own is Final Fantasy VII. I loved […]

Joss Whedon’s Firefly

Last week I bought the Firefly box set. This was an actual impulse buy. My housemate at University, 3 1/2 years ago now, was heavily into Buffy at the time. I couldn’t get into it for the life of me. The reasons where very simple, I couldn’t get into the whole concept, and Buffy herself […]


I’m surprised all the usual comic book websites haven’t picked this up. Usuaully they’re the first to pick this sort of thing up, soo what I’ll do is I’ll talk about it here and then I’ll send them an e-mail shouting and scolding them.

Seems there’s a company called Untamed Cinema that as you guessed it, […]


So I watched Kiki’s delivery service,…again. I guess Miyazaki’s movies are starting to replace my eternal crush on Amelie. Whenever I need to be inspired I always tend to gravitate towards the man’s work. The english translation leaves a lot to be desired from in certain areas, but nothing could take away from the magic […]

I’m a Genius

There should be more people like me in Holllywwooood (think Bill Hicks when saying that in your head). Loads of new goodies over at the official Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Why am I a genius you ask? If I may refer you to this here post from over a year ago. See […]

25th Hour

A Spike Lee joint.

That kind of says it all doesn’t it? I think this review will appeal a bit more to those that have actually seen the movie rather than those that haven’t. There aren’t any spoilers here, but based on the rating I give it, I suggest you go and get it if […]


SCIFI.COM | Earthsea

Just saw this on the scifi channel website. For all those in the dark, this to me was the granddaddy of fantasy novels. I read this before Lord of the Rings, and it was awesome. I’m thinking of reading it again. They’ve got a decent cast there as well. Definitely one for the […]

I, Robot

Not really sure about this movie. I know the hype around this one has begun, and there are loads of reports about it being pretty poor where story is concerned, and that this is more a Will Smith type affair than an Alex Proyas type movie. Alex Proyas for those in the dark is the […]

San Diego Comic Convention Coverage 2004 - Part 4

New ‘Star Wars’ movie title revealed

CNN.com - New ‘Star Wars’ movie title revealed - Jul 25, 2004
Out of complete boredom I actually typed in cnn.com and there it was in full glory the actual name of the new Star Wars movie : Episode Three.

Star Wars - Episode III : Revenge of the Sith

I really like […]

Farenheit 9/11

Watched it last night. Very well put together littl documentary. Lots of food for thought. The thing is as with any media you’ll see it as biased propaganda, but the thing that it shows is how the western world has been subjected to the other side’s propaganda for so long, I think it’s healthy to […]

Star Wars Episode III

I should not be getting excited but what can I do it’s my inner geek. I know it will be crap. I know it’s going to annoy me no end, but it’s going to be amazing nonetheless, because it will be the end of the most major sci-fi fantasy series ever created, till now, in […]

Volume 2

Right so I finally saw KILL BILL Volume 2 yesterday. Before I continue I’m going to say that this review has major SPOILERS. I’m going to be talking about everything I liked and disliked about the movie in detail, so be warry. If you’ve not had a chance to see it, go somewhere else, come […]
