Anybody looking forward to the Expendables 2.

All the boys are back; Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Bruce Willis and Arnie. Don't know about Mickey Rourke but a lot of others are also going to be in it including Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Steve Austin who I think dies in the last one, and possibly Charlie Sheen, Nicolas Cage, John Travolta and others.

No coherant plot, not much acting, but loads of action. Can't wait!

I had decent expectations of "The Expendables" and after watching it...well, my feelings were mixed.

No, I didn't expect any great big coherent story...but was it me or was there some serious cliches in the movie overall that bugged me? Well, that and this was after I watched Stallone's last "Rambo" film which I think was one of his best. Oddly enough, it's said some audience members were rolling their eyes at the amount of carnage in the film, such as when Rambo operates the M2 .50 cal Browning. It seems many still don't realize just what kind of damage a .50 cal round will do to an average human sized target...

Anyway, getting back on track, I think the problem with Expendables is that they hyped way too much on the star billing. Yeah, it wasn't bad...but I just wish they'd focused a bit more on the movie itself, but I digress. To each their own.

Ray Milland's "Panic in the Year Zero". From what I understand a lot better than the book.

Future War 198x, Anime movie from the early 80's here is a link to a German dub version. It's good anime, before they started ruining it with irrational school girl super soldiers and such.

Default The Irish in Africa

The Siege of Jadotville

Has anyone seen this film yet? I just noticed it on Netflix yesterday and thought it might be worth a couple of hours. I'd hate to waste my time, though.

Yes I saw it last week on Netflix Raeullus. I am Irish and was a bit cynical about watching a film about Irish soldiers as I was expecting it to be a bit corny and full of clichés. But it was far better than I expected and is based on a true event. It starts off slow but the storyline and action gradually builds, and I would recommend it.

In the real incident in the Congo they were outnumbered 20-1 and five of them were injured. But they killed at least 300 and wounded one thousand before their ammunition ran out. Don't f**K with the Irish!

Default Beast of no nation on Netflick is "very T2Kish"

Beast of no nation on netflick is a very interesting movie. It's very T2Kish. Even though it's closely modeled on real world events.

That channel also has a bunch of the Showa era Godzilla films, which is making me wonder how to do a kaiju. Traveller: The New Era has some creature creation rules, but for size they only go up to 44 tonnes, while the Official Godzilla Compendium puts early Godzilla at 20,000 tonnes.

Extrapolating out on the table, he'd be Size 4989, with 5003d20 hits (or~52,500 Hits taking average die rolls) and x1666D6 as a modifier to damage dice (or ~5800D6 for a Dam 1 attack like the tail, while the claws and teeth would either be 1d6 or 1d6-1 for the number to multiply by 5800).

Depending on which table entries were rolled, claws could be either Pen 554 or 624, teeth would be either Pen 499 or 624, and the tail slap would be Pen 713.

The table for armor doesn't cover creatures this size; under RAW he'd be Armor 3 simply because that's the highest entry on the table and it's maxed out by his size modifier.

The lack of an appropriate armor table leaves game Godzilla a little weaker than film Godzilla, but that massive number of Hits and high Pen on the attacks would still make him dangerous.
