"Metal against Metal" [51]


"(Parker) swung the tracker with all his strength.

There was a dull thunk. The tracker continued through its arc while Ash's head went a different way.

Alan Dean Foster - Novelisation 1979

No, You're not getting much today Aa11 fans. Only the one panel. (Now, you say: "Oh but what a panel John. WHAT a panel!") I know, I hear you; you sure are right, it is indeed what a panel.

After Ripley's ducking and Parker doing his two hands together thump on Brash's back - that thing that people did in the '70s that was supposed to look like Karate or something - Parker grabs the axe and swings it with all of the might that his mighty broad back can muster. I had to guess what that would look like without even the aid of the CRACKED magazine version. I reckon the novelisation was crucial here.

Star Wars age 9

If you haven't seen Star Wars age 9 yet you really should. It's miles better than this thing. And guess what? I've decided to take a second stab at it: a new adaptation using old stuff. Our Neil Baker - resident filmmaker and funnyman - is also up for contributing. So you know it'll be good. My interest has revived since - among other SW related things - I met Lando in the flesh last weekend in Dublin!

How many of you have - like me - been avoiding Prometheus news lately? I know some of you have. Since the big 3 minute International Trailer went out I think it was a case of: "No, I've seen too much!"

More, as usual, on Monday. Have a great weekend folks.
