Macheaded…

MacPCStill recovering from last night’s Wong Jing epic.  Lot’s of work to do over the weekend and hoping to get out to see Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell at some point.

Aside from much alien carnage (see previous post), much of my time this week has been spent in getting acclimated to using a new Macbook pro purchased recently.  The last time I recall using a Mac on a regular basis I was living in the states, Motorola was the only name in town for wireless tech, and Bill Clinton was still in office (and big kudos to him for getting those reporters home!). 

Anyway, trying to unlearn my PC ways is proving to be a bit time consuming.  But all of this is in the hopes of making a better site and having some decent art/podcasting to0ls to work with.

The Final Fallout 3 add-on hits the DL store this week.
The fifth and final Fallout 3 add-on hits the DL store this week.

As a huge fan of Fallout 3, I just have to pop in a reminder to any gamers out there (as if you did not already know) that this week is the drop date for the final expansion for the game (Mothership Zeta).

Having just cleaned out the hillbilly mutants of the Point Lookout expansion, I am very eager to jump in to this new expansion.

I can recall earlier this year, being royally ticked when the first expansion, Operation: Anchorage, would not work for players in Asia because of patch issue.  Fortunately the powers that be have since resolved that issue and I have not had any trouble with the 3 subsequent expansions that have followed.  Let the xenophobic carange begin…

The Name’s Koo…Louis Koo.

On His Majesty's Secret Service (Mainland China Poster)

After last weeks Overheard, another Louis Koo (古天樂) venture takes to the screens this Thursday in the form of On His Majesty’s Secret Service(大内密探灵灵狗).  While this film’s theme and title appears similar to Vincent Kok’s 1996 film Forbidden City Cop (大內密探零零發) which starred Stephen Chow (周星馳), it is unlikely to have much of a relation beyond the Chinese title.  And much like George Lazenby in the British film of similar name, it is doubtful that this will in any way be a recurring role for Mr. Koo.

 

More interesting with regard to this film is the fact that it has gotten earlier release dates in mainland China, than in Hong Kong (approximately 1 week according to the poster above).  A trend which is troubling among some circles of film-goers here in the region.
