There's not much meat on them though.

You'd just be hungry again an hour later.

I hope a good movie comes out soon.

All the most recent stubs I've got saved in my wallet are for crap that I went to see to make fun of with my friends eg. Dragonball:Evolution, Fast and Furious.

I don't bother with the cams, sometimes you can get a screener if you are lucky.

Saw Star Trek last night.

I thought it was pretty fun.
Some silly plot points and some characters didn't get enough screen time but for the most part I think it did an admirable job or reviving an ailing franchise and setting up a new cast.
Star Trek 2 is where it'll really get fun.

And does Bret Easton Ellis get a mention in Stuff White People Like? Surely.

Who has seen Donkey Punch? Hahaha, so fucking bad. The most annoying English actors ever. But kudos for that title.

its HEAPS more graphic, theres heaps of stuff in the book that they couldnt possibly show or even allude to on film.

But its a fucking great book, and so is Glamorama, which I prefer to AP.

Maybe it was just the fact that I watched it in the dark but I just finished The Orphanage and thought it was pretty good.
Creeped me out at least.

Yeah I too enjoyed it, the cast did well considering the nature of the material. What was the go with Scotty's little mate? it looked like a cross between a prune and an ewok but awesome the same.

Is that out now?

I saw The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas today. It followed the book very closely and was shot well. I loved it.
The acting was excellent as well.

Oh shit. I did too, literally.

Saw Star Trek last night. Very pleasantly surprised. The only Star Trek I've ever seen is the old school stuff, Kirk fighting the lizard monster and making rudimentary gun powder etc. when the re-runs used to be on late at night. This, although massively calculated to be cool (Sabotage in a Star Trek film!) definately surpassed my expectations, even though i'd heard it would be good, I still thought it would be half naff. It's almost strange how entertaining it was.
