I'm not sure they were that good to start with! They were just a bit different and perhaps "we" happened to be the right age at the time or something - but I watched the first one recently (because it was on, and I was in the US wide awake at 4am!) and it really wasn't that good - compared to say the Matrix, or even the early Bournes! However I have a rule of thumb that after 3 series of any TV show or 3 films in a franchise they WILL screw it up (sometimes they manage sooner) because there is only so much you can write without becoming formulaic rubbish.

Fair enough, I should have pre-emptively warned you!

Now remember the discussion about being trapped on a remote island with crazy people from the internet... ...you are not helping your case with all this fantasy fiction nonsense! However, as it happens I have been thinking over a few ideas for 2016 [I was supposed to have a 2015 "finale" but a forecast F8 gusting 9 put paid to that!]...

Trapped ...perhaps Willk.. but at least you put on half a brave face and kept your sanity.. if I recall correctly .. there were a few stone faced trolls in that movie.



Roll on 2016 and the next adventure ... I hope you will come again then too to keep Poly under control. I got the impression he is not really the Rambo type...but I can understand his liking of The Matrix.

I find that many of the new versions of films like The Mechanic (Charles Bronson) 1972 , The day the Earth Stood Still (1951) and others are a complete disappointment.
I did enjoy the latest Bond film and like Daniel Craig in the role although I thought Skyfall had the edge.
