But maybe someone has already mentioned it before on here, either way, the movie I would like to talk about today is DOMINATOR - The first-ever British CGI movie. Hoo boy, this thing even has an interesting history to it (along with a few ugly details).

Hmm - Go back and check the archives -- I'm almost certain there was some discussion of this at some point - or maybe I'm confusing the title with something else -

oh, well -- Looks like tripe! . . . We love tripe!!

I searched, can't find anything except one post that didn't get any replies, unless I'm not looking hard enough.

Looks like cut scenes from a PS1.

Stiil, I'd want to see it

That is some serious badness of extraordinary magnitude... poor Doug Bradley should have known better. Still I liked it much better when it was a Severed Heads video TeddyR

Wow.  No wonder the character animation looks..  Like that.  It was made partly in poser.   Buggedout

Bump and a double post, but here's that history I promised for all those who may be interested.

-First printed as a small comic in music magazine Metal Hammer in the late 80s, written and illustrated by artist Tony Luke.

-Picked up by Japanese publishing giant Kodansha to be revamped in 1993, ran alongside the likes of Oh! My Goddess and Gunsmith Cats, even had a crossover with a series called Get a Grip! Tsuyoshi. Was written by Alan Grant and illustrated by Tony Luke.

-Work begins on what was supposed to be a downloadable series made for small-budget CG in 1999/2000, adapted from the manga version of Dominator.

-Project is halted when Tony Luke gets cancer, depression keeps project on hiatus for a while.

-UK Sci-Fi Channel tells Tony Luke they want to turn Dominator into a film, he is given limited time and funding for voice actors (voice actors include Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth, Doug Bradley, Ingrid Pitt, Liza Goddard, Alex Cox and British Radio 1 comedy DJs Mark & Lard), old CG footage is salvaged from drafts with only a few updates able to be made. Alan Grant only has enough time to do one script revision.

-Film premiered in 2002, Tony Luke survives cancer.

-DVD released in 2003, word of a sequel begins to circulate.

-Heavy Metal 2000 crossover occurs in 2005, sequel rumours still in circulation.

-No longer a sequel but instead a bigger-budget revamp is going to happen with a manga illustrated by Masanori Shino in the works.

-Various funding problems and license-holder issues means Dominator remake is canceled, only thing to come out of it was a working trailer and a pilot manga.

"Somewhere along the line Tony Luke just said it was s**t and he made it for a laugh because the Sci-Fi Channel were dicks."

A few random scans of the manga for anyone interested, it's insanely-obscure. http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/8413/scan0006n.jpg

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
