Most people who are interested in 3D buy Blu-Ray 3D discs, of which there are plenty. The trouble with 3D TV is that it's so clunky with having to switch the picture and having messages to put up...

It's not funny or clever at all. It's a demonstration of how the media always want to dumb down politics to the level of entertainment.

I think that's right. This election reminds me so much of 1992 when neither Neil Kinnock nor John Major were seen as hugely popular leaders. I recall discussing in a pub which party to vote for just...

Absolutely. If he was still Labour leader, he would easily win the coming election. The Labour Blair haters know that but are so obsessed about Iraq. Milliband is pathetic in comparison.

Sky show the vast majority of films in their OAR. In fact, I've never ever seen them show something not in its original ratio, and I watch a lot. As for Stardust, I just checked it out on Sky On...
