We will soon have drugs that can selectively erase memory. Or maybe we’ve had them for a long time…

The top 10, 50, whatever, of 2003 in dozens of categories (film, books, dvds, games, music, etc). Cool stuff.

What a Crappy Present

What not to get the kid who has everything.

One of many I’ve been reading at MetaCritic:

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is so replete with imagistic and literary treasures that it repays re-viewing. After seeing it, I felt as I did after seeing E.T. – that unless the distributor wants to pull it back, there’s no reason for it ever to stop running.

Saw It

Yes! Christmas has come early, folks. We just got back from the 7pm showing of ROTK (yes, it’s a looong movie). I’ll post a long review once I’ve had some time to digest it. Suffice it to say it was a fantastic end to a fantastic trilogy. Peter Jackson (the whole massive team, really) needs to win an award that puts the Academy to shame. Top grossing film of all time maybe. Nah, that doesn’t do it justice.
Just spectacular. If you haven’t seen it yet, get thee to a multiplex with a big screen and a good sound system. Get there early if you have to so you can get a good seat. We got there 2 1/2 hours early and sat in line, but got the center seats mid-screen.
