    Re Gravity: Did anyone else get a sense that Sandra in her undies was something of a homage to Sigorney Weaver swanning around half dressed in Alien?

    Definitely, except she should have been wearing a diaper, since she was taking a spacewalk.

    Stitcheroneous, was that the first time you saw the Usual Suspects? I envy you if so, that movie kicks all kinds of ass.

    Worth watching is McQuarrie's directorial debut following writing that film - The Way of the Gun.

    In a moment of weakness I went out last weekend to catch a late showing of the 300 se-pre-quel.

    It was as drab as I thought; except for Eva Green going Leon-style-Gary-Oldman and getting ker kit off, nothing that we had not seen in the first film, done considerably better. Oh yeah, horse-on-a-ship bit was super-weird, but not as ridiculous as the whole Xerxes transformation 'explanation'. Sheeesh.

    It also seems that the main guy was good enough to slaughter the whole invading force single-handed. A Wolverine/Yojimbo tag-team wouldn't even put a scratch on him. Not sure why he even bothered with 'strategy' and stuff...

    Not going to bother examining any of the moral implications or general inaccuracies of the story, not realy a historical drama.

    I'd feel bad for the people involved, but considering the box-office reports I'm sure this is not the last 300 film we'll get.

    Avoid 300 at all costs, it's genuinely the worst movie I've seen in a long time. I wasn't expecting much but was suprised to see how dull they managed to make all the carnage. Honestly, it has absolutely nothing to recommend itself, not even good visual effects.

    Watched Captain Phillips. I know there are are some inaccuracies in the story and the film isn't great overall but goddamn, Tom Hanks in the last half hour of that film was fucking awesome. Amazing acting.
