Even if summer is a quiet time for software it usually sees some big name movie releases and this one's no exception with Aliens 3 (August), Lethal Weapon 3 (August) and Batman 2 (July) all due out during the hols. Everyone wants to be a movie star (how else can you get to star in a computer game too) so the SU Crew are on the audition trail this month hoping that, in between bringing you the most crucial Spectrum action available, they'll also be able to land a major film role. Some chance!

Alan Dykes

"I've always wanted to be in a movie where I get a chance to kick Jean Claude Van Damme where it hurts and then run away, very quickly, relying on my superior speed and the smell of fear to get as far away as possible before he recovers. Apart from that, any movie with Daryl Hannah, Michelle Pfeiffer, Winona Ryder or Andie McDowell in it will do. Howoooo!"

Yvette Nichols
Art Editor

"I want to be Jessica Rabbit in the next Roger Rabbit movie. I have all the qualifications, or so all my fans tell me (keep on writing boys). She's smart, good looking, has an amazing voice and best of all, she's married to the cuddliest rabbit in the world." (at this point the rest of the crew run to the toilet and get sick). "Alternatively I'd like to star in a movie with Keanu Reeves, he's ..." (Crew run to the toilet and get sick again, ad infinitum).
Fave Games: Anything ultra cute.

Tina Zanelli
Ad Manager

"I'm really jealous of Sigourney Weaver getting the Ripley role again in Aliens 3. I'm much tougher than her. I've always wanted to be a macho screen actress which is why I work out twice a day and go on a fifteen mile run every night before having a wrestling match with my boyfriend who looks like Hulk Hogan. I always beat him too, just like I beat the aliens who tried to take over SU some time ago."
Fave Games: Grell & Fella, Captain Dynamo.

Steve Keen
Features Editor

"I wanna be Wayne out of Wayne's World. I've already got a cool but somewhat nerdy friend named Garth and I know more about Heavy Metal music than any of those cheap wimpo American dudes ... (NOT!) So keep an eye out in your local cinema for Steve's World, where you'll hear me say "party on dudes" at least once a minute, "excellent!" after every sentence and hang out with the most amazing babes in the world, all of whom are named Aisling."

"I've always wanted to be Danny De Vito, which is a physical impossibility 'cos I'm six feet five inches tall, but the world loves a trier. I once completely shaved the centre of my head, put a pair of shoes on my knees and walked into Universal Studios wearing a tiny suit, telling nasty jokes and complaining a lot. They actually thought I was Danny De Vito for three whole seconds then kicked me out again."

However, if anyone feels like putting a copy of SU in a deep space probe, sent out to seek other worlds and communicate examples of earth's wonderful things, of which SU is probably the best example (along with a well known brand of lager) to alien races in space, I don't think Mike will mind too much! Y'all have a nice day now.
