Saw the extended version (soon to be released over here on dvd) of Gladiator last night - there's about 17 mins of extra stuff in there and unlike some of these exercises, they add to the depth of the characters. I'm not usually a fan of that kind of flick but it's a great movie.

No shaun sheep unfortunately Brit gob, but a great watch nonetheless. It's playing right now in Australia. God Japan is late getting some movies.

 

Really want to see dig, should be out soon on DVD I guess.

A friend lent me "Threads" - a pretty bleak scary thing from back when we were all scared of nuclear holocaust more than terrorism. I think it was a BBC tv thing, not a movie for the theaters. Sobering even to watch it now.

I thought they were surely cgi until I read they weren't. Nice one.

Watched 2 movies last weekend:

1. It's all gone Pete Tong

A pseudo docu about the DJ. Frankie Wilde who is a star DJ on Ibiza. He shags women and snort coke, but runs in to some very big problems

Not a "great" movie, but fun at times and worth a look.

2. Basquiat

 

About the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and New York art scene in the 80's

 

A strong movie with lots of great acting.

I saw the Aviator the other night too. I couldn't see much point to it, although Leonardo always turns in a good performance. A good documentary would have been more interesting. And what was up with the super shitty SFX? Were they supposed to be retro or something? I could have done a better Spruce Goose and spray effects in Bryce...

I just watched Mars Attacks. I remember not liking it too much first time but I was laughing quite a bit this time, some amusing stuff going on there. \:\)
