2/5
Slightly different spin on the vampire mythos. Beautifully shot with a bit too hysterical final act. 3/5
Surreal limodrive through NYC. Rather theatrical dialogue. Being stuck in a limo for most of the run time doesn't lend itself well to Cronenberg's usual cinematic flourishes. Picks up near the end. 3/5
oops, wrong thread
Thanks - will check it out next time I'm in the area (so to speak).

Did you mean deflated? I don't like the Porto Chrono for other reasons (prefer the Porto Auto), but while it *is* rather large (and known to wear larger due to the slim bezel), it's smaller than the original Portos.The current 3714 is 40.9mm vs the 43mm of the first Porto from '39 and the 42mm of the 5441, introduced in '93.Anyway, here's a nice one from '42:
Did you see the clip with Prince Charles using Urquhart's famous line? I suspect he's seen the series, but I'm also guessing he's using the line unconsciously.Anyway, finished The Final Cut tonight (last part of the UK House of Cards trilogy) - great stuff with a lot of great lines."It pays to be completely impossible from time to time; throw a bit of stick about, show them who's who and what's what - just for madness, eh?"
