Make sure it's when you have absolutely nothing else to do. Last thing at night's good so when you wake up, you feel strangely ok about missing it.

I've just had the thought after reading the quote on that page, that the best actor for the role would have been....



........wait for it......




........you know it's coming, don't you.......





.........yes, that's right..........



... good old George Dubblya :D

As Caius says, not good enough for the flicks. And for that matter, only good enough to go to dvd in, wait for it, the good ol' U.S. of A.
If you ever wondered about Christopher Lambert's acting, this answers it. It's worth a quick peek just to laugh at his wig and 'tash.

What's RIGHT with the film 'DRUIDS'?

There is seriously nothing to praise this pile of 'excrement' at all. No. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. Zip.
Wouldn't be without it in the collection though.

Too right. The effects were both psychological AND physical. But history from the norman conquest is littered with the cavalry succeeding where it should have failed , failed where it should have succeeded and being rendered useless. I don't know if charging horse would have charged with lance, but ...

I would have said the effect was to make the opposition s**t themselves. It wasn't just the sight of them coming at you or the resulting impact, but the ground shaking like no-one had experienced before was, on many occasion, enough to panic the enemy into breaking and running. There's no doubt it w...

Most of the blokes I know tend to think Joselines maid or Kate the armourer were much more attractive than Joseline. Is that a general blokes opinion?!? Just curious. YEP. In fact, even Mrs Geoff (deleted scenes) was more attractive. I'm positive if any normal red-blooded medieval peasanty guy had ...

Correct colonel. After the very first enigma was cracked way back in 1931 by a polish geezer, it 'conveniently' made its way here, by which time the enigma had developed somewhat. To clarify my post, the americans never captured any part of an enigma that we did not already have.(god, they'll try an...

Crooked Nose here.
Actually, I think they did capture part of an enigma but I need to do some digging. U505 in the Chicago museum of Science was captured with one after the captain 'forgot' to open the sea-cocks to scuttle it upon capture off bermuda.

Regarding the music, I suggest you Don't buy the soundtrack CD. I bought it for the bowie golden years track and it's a version of one of his albums.
