Terminator

Sadly abysmal local offering

The poster for Future X-Cops, director Wong Jing's newest sci-fi flick, lets potential viewers know that the film will not be an Avatar-esque CGI carnival, and worse still, it suggests there isn't even a fun story to tell.

Terminator Salvation (DVD)

More than an action thriller, Terminator Salvation is also a funny and surprisingly tender-hearted story. It would be a good idea to review the previous trio of Terminator films before you pick up this DVD. Otherwise, you may be wondering what's going on.

smart currents on solids

Images of the killing machine in Terminator 2 came to mind when I first read this press release from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The assassin-robot (right), you will recall, could turn from metal to liquid and back in a split second. That was supposed to be science fiction. It's reality now.

Slug-fest to put spotlight on stadium

IF the beleaguered Hong Kong Stadium is looking for a knight in shining armour he may well come in the form of John Daly.

The Los Angeles-based British film producer is convinced he's got just the event to ''bring the wonderful stadium to the eyes of the world and put it on the map''.

PICK OF THE TV FLICKS

IT'S A superlative week as far as telly flicks go. Not just because we have two of the best cyberpunk movies ever made, but also because we have a film that must go down as one of the worst in recent years.
