      I remember seeing a special edition Star Trek box set that had this.
      Hampden, the Enterprise has had limited, sympathetic CGI treatment, I'd say with a good degree of success. So have aliens in space including those seen on the bridge viewer, and the planets while the ship is in orbit around them. There are no changes to the plastic sets! The best thing for me is watching it all on a big screen with crystal clarity. Yes, the remastered series came out on DVD with the usual whistles and bells attached about five years ago.

        Hunger Games: Mocking Jay

        Does a good job of showing how propaganda is used by both sides in a war, with cold blooded efficiency.

          The House of Magic

          An abandoned ginger cat finds his way into a spooky old house owned by an eccentric magician whose nephew is hell-bent on selling the property from under him. Nicely animated CGI, but I felt something was a bit lacking in this kids' flick.

                All three films in that series grow on you with every watching.

                  Not bad, does seem to be packed out with added violence when the plot gets a bit thin...in fact, not convinced that there actually is a plot.

                  The last 'set' is sort of unbelievable too.

                  Still, watched it at the base cinema, so didn't have to pay the down town rate to see it.

                  Worth a look if you've nothing else to do.

                    Personally I think it's the weakest of the three films (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz being the other two), but I haven't watched it in a while.

                      The words 'sort of' are unnecessary in this context.

                        It's referred to as `The Cornetto Trilogy`

                        Films are like books. Never try to tell some one to watch one, they have to find them for themselves.

                          Hi All,
                          Grudge Match - Sylvester Stallone/Alan Arkin/Kim Basinger/Kevin Hart and Robert De Niro. Quite a funny and enjoyable film for the most part with a couple of funny's at the end credits.

                            After some harassment from my work colleagues, I ended up borrowing it to see what all the fuss was about.

                            Ummm. Yeah, it wasn't bad!

                              Always noticed the C-123 Provider with an ejector seat. Never noticed it was made to look like a four engined jet before! [or is that just my copy ?] Other than that a film of its time still enjoyable . Yippee kyay ..........

                                Hi All,
                                Timelapse (15) - A good simple basic old fashioned Sci-Fi film without any spell binding special effects, just a good story with a twist at the end I enjoyed it anyway and that's what is important well worth a watch IMHO.

                                  Still great fun (and the scary thing is the first one is almost 20 years old!!). Wish they would just leave it at 3 and not carry on...!

                                    One of the film review places on the net found and asked a man who was a WW II veteran tank crew memeber.
                                    He said except for the last scene, which was pure Hollywood, it was just the way it was during the war in tank warfare.

                                      Well, they added to much tracers in the CG, and sometimes (especially the scene they rescued the pinned down soldiers in an open area) it
                                      fells like star wars.

                                        Watched I-Frankenstein last night a good bit of Fantasy/Horror escapism. It stars Aaron Eckhart, Yvonne Strahovski, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Caitlin Stasey.
