      Evil scientists, viruses, murder, frame ups, zombie dogs, government conspiracies, dramatic escapes to freedom and amusing costumes.

      It's Resident Evil meets Bourne Identity meets Master of Disguise.

      Pure Oscar material right there.

        The musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad antivirus pioneer. I think this could become a cult movie on par with The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    but the guy is just a complete wanker and makes me come over all daily mail and in favour of the death penalty.

      Sorry... had to double read that comment...... that sentence could have turned out all wrong and slightly disturbing.

    There's a phrase...

    ... in the Southern United States which sums up J. McAfee: "nuttier than a Stuckey's Log."

    John McAfee goes to Hollywood

    Do we really want John McAfee representing the tech sector in popular culture?

    Will Ferrell is the man..

    .. he'll make a good leading man.. hiding by burying himself in the sand with cops and (possibly) K9? could be a very Will Ferrell classic.

    Let's feed this idiots ego more

    buy getting people to slap him every time he's spotted. With a bit of luck he'll go into hiding, as long as they take away this clowns computer we need never hear of this wazzock again.

    Reincarnation

    The more I read, the more I start to ponder whether McAfee is the reincarnation of Baron Munchausen.

    Can we forget all this nonsense for a bit?

    I hope they find and convict whoever killed Mr Faull.

    Joke

    Being Hollywood, will they have the bit in where he stole the first Enigma machine

    from all those Nazis still hiding bases in South America? And then marries Queen Kate.

    Inevitable...

    ...though I won't be in line to pay to see it. Maybe one day in a year or so when it's free somewhere - and I'm good and stoned - I'll spend a brain-dead evening with JM. It'll be fitting then.
