Sad news for our little community. Our friend Jonathon was in a fatal car accident and has passed away from his injuries. He was a sweet, warm presence among us and a loyal friend to many. Our thoughts go out to his fiancee, his family, and all who were lucky enough to have him in their lives. His funeral will take place today in Mexico. He worked in the music industry he loved so well for many years and always brought sensitivity and light to our discussions. He will be missed.

Change of season. About the season for "Mists of Avalon" or "Half Light", to stir the imagination and indulge your thriller craving. Not much news for now, but who knows what is going on below those still waters.

September 12th, 2010
Check out some screen captures from "Family Money". Apologies for the quality but until we get a better original (hint hint), that's the best we can do.
Both "Sherlock Holmes" and "Clash of the Titans" are now available on DVD and Bluray at a store or video library near you. Anyone with a Bluray player can enjoy additional special features, not available on the traditional DVD.

August 7th, 2010
Happy birthday to Hans from all his fans and supporters. Things have been quiet lately so there's not much to report. Clash of the Titans is now available in most pplaces on DVD and Bluray. We hope to have some screen captures for you soon.

May 18th, 2010
The Region 2 DVD of Sherlock Holmes is now available in the UK. More screen captures have now been uploaded to the gallery.

Meanwhile, Channel Four are now screening episodes of "Family Money", which originally screened back in 1997 and has been rarely seen since. It's only available to UK viewers and needless to say, those of us who live elsewhere would love to have it made available to us somehow. (HINT, HINT). Failing that, some screen captures would be great. Check it out here

The Sherlock Holmes gallery has been updated with screen captures from the DVD. Enjoy.

May 1st, 2010
Goodness, it's been a long time between updates. I do apologise, I've been away. In the meantime, of course, "Clash of The Titans" has been released, to lukewarm reviews and box office success. So much so, that news of a sequel has been released. (Though it comes as no surprise to Hans fans that Hans' character Ixas will most likely not be in the sequel after his confrontation with Medusa.) The Bluray/DVD will be released in July and has some deleted scenes and an alternate ending amongst its features. Details.
Meanwhile, the "Sherlock Holmes" Bluray and DVD has been released in the US, with the UK release scheduled for May 17.
And while I was away, "Tess Of The D'Urbervilles" finally aired on the ABC. The DVD will be avalable from the 6th May, just in time for Mothers' Day.

March 25th, 2010
More pictures and video clips from "Clash of the Titans" have been released and can be viewed Clash of The Titans pictures.

2010 is off to a good start with "Sherlock Holmes" proving a huge success at the box office (overshadowed only by the mammoth success of "Avatar" starring Sam Worthington, who also stars in the upcoming "Clash Of the Titans") and SH star Robert Downey Jr winning a Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy or musical. The Sherlock Holmes gallery has been updated with some captures from a TV feature.

Bathorycomes out in Germany in January 2010, distributed by MIG FIlm Group.
"It stars Hans Matheson as the italian painter Merisi Caravaggio. English actress Anna Friel plays Erzsebet Bathory (Elizabeth Bathory), the 16th Century Hungarian countess also known as 'The Blood Countess' who is listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the woman who murdered the most people in history. Some say Bathory killed 600, others say she killed up to 2000. She is one of the first known serial killers.The film is a thriller with a lot of action directed by the fantasy Slovak filmmaker, Juraj Jakubisko. The producer worked on Natural Born Killers (Quentin Tarantino's first screenplay). It is the most expensive Eastern European film ever made. And it has broken all box office records in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The film comes out in January in Germany --around the time Sherlock Holmes is released in theatres".Press release - English translation.

Meanwhile it seems that the DVD and Blu-ray of Bathory will finally be released in Slovakia on November 11th. Details
