back to article 2021: A Bork Odyssey. Is it remake of Disney's The Black Hole or explorer.exe being shown the door?

The UK's cinemas may be reopening, but it looks to us like The Terminator is still showing. Or perhaps that perennial Microsoft favourite – Bork: The Movie. The Harlow branch of flick-flinger Cineworld is the scene of today's unfortunate events, as a screen which would normally show what treats are in store for customers is …

    I've seen "Terminator"

    ... and Terminator 2.

    But Terminator 4248, well that's more sequels than Fast and Furious! Perhaps it came back through time...

    Politically Correct Commands

    Still, it's better than the command (Unix, I believe) to "KILL ALL CHILDREN". Sterner stuff, indeed.

      Re: Politically Correct Commands

      I've been doing Unix/Linux for 25+ years and I'm pretty sure that's not a command. However, if you kill a process it does tend to kill the children processes as well. Unless you kill -9, in which case sometimes the children turn into Zombies. Or Kill -15 which will force the parents to turn into werewolves.

    The Black Hole

    That was one of my favourite cheesy movies. It has The Black Hole,good robots,villain robots and a mad scientist.

      There's also a fair amount of ham in that cheese- some of the actors were pretty big names when it came out.

      Re: The Black Hole

      For a brief moment I thought they were actually going to remake it. I was rather excited.

      Come on Disney, you have remade damn near everything else. It's time the a Blackhole reboot.
