So you thought 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' was Sean Connery's last movie? That's forgetting about this unbelievably awful and cheap looking film where he voices a skateboarding grandpa:



It looks like the sort of thing that should be on RLM's Best of the Worst.
I found out about Sir Billi a couple years ago.

Apparently there was a controversy in Scotland where people were mad because Brave was more popular than the actually Scottish Sir Billi.
Gawd. That animation looks like it would've been cutting edge in the early '90s, pre-Toy Story.
What da fak. I thought Sean Connery said:
 
Quote:I thought long and hard about it and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement it would have been an Indiana Jones film.[...] But in the end, retirement is just too damned much fun. 

So Indiana Jones 4 wasn't enough for getting out of retirement, yet Sir Billi was?

He probably didn't have to leave home to do the voice-over work.
I'm not sure whether to be impressed or appalled that the new blu-ray cover of The Squeeze, a 1987 Michael Keaton movie that apparently exists, retains the original poster image. Maybe a bit of both?

I was reading that the PlayStation 5 is confirmed to include a 4K blu-ray drive: https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=25832

I'm sure like me, a lot of people bought a PS3 because it came with a then pretty new blu-ray drive for "free". The same will probably be true for this. The console also being backward compatible with all the existing PS4 games is gonna make this a difficult purchase to resist.
I skipped out on the PS4, but I may get the PS5 (when it drops in price...). I was pretty peeved the PS4 wasn't backwards compatible... and I think it's a bit silly the PS5 won't play PS3 games either. These things are bulky and take up loads of space.

I know. IIRC correctly, the PS3 was a totally different system, a custom Sony console build type thing, where as the PS4 and PS5 are basically PCs so compatibility isn't really an issue anymore.

I can't wait to finally be able to play the two UHD discs I own! Big Grin
I’m kind of surprised it has a disk drive at all. I’m not a gamer, but my kids recently got a Nintendo Switch and we buy games by downloading them.
