Storm – the movie

This is a wonderful way to think about the alternative medicine, which is just an alternative to rational thought. Since the alternative to rational thought is nonsense, animation may be the most appropriate medium to represent it. This is a trailer, but it looks as if the final product will be superb.

More information is available at the official site for the movie Storm.

R.I.P. Paul Scofield

One of the greatest roles in the movies was Paul Scofield’s portrayal of Sir Thomas More in A Man For All Seasons (1962). Today he died of leukemia. My condolences to his family.

Lawdog recently commented on seeing 10,000 BC and my response to this was – Why?

I have never understood the appeal of i can haz kavwoman, well the Raquel in a bikini part I do understand, but she was in several other movies that kept you interested in the plot between bikini shots. What EMS person can forget Mother, Jugs & Speed?

If you need a great movie to see, watch A Man For All Seasons – no bikinis or nudity, but great writing and acting.

In an earlier post, I mentioned Juno, which I liked, but it isn’t in the same league. IMDB ranks Juno higher.
