Hopefully you know that they stop fires, instead of start them, so you wont be too disappointed.

I am almost done with Problemski Hotel by Dimitri Verhulst and I am reading Sin City The Hard Goodbye, among others.

I think he is actually incredibly talented, he is just put into $h*t movies.

I read an interview that said that he only does these big blockbuster movies to be able to appear in smaller, more serious films.

I am just not sure that bright Ozymandias would work in a movie. The movie looks rather dark in the trailer, and I don't think you can contrast the colours as easily on screen as you could in a comic book.

One thing though, if you like TV then it might make you slightly angry.

You'll see.

So that is what it means.

Also, Farenheit is very good.

I think I figured out why A Clockwork Orange was classified as "banned".

The last chapter of the book was omitted in the US release.

Also, it seems that most of my bookshelf is being filled by Dystopian novels. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

I really liked Of Mice and Men, one of the better books we have read in class.

Then again I read the book to the first class, when should have only read the two first chapters.

Ok, technically it's not a book, it's a play..but Romeo and Juliet was pretty bad. Even worse, my classmates didn't realize that it was a story about two horny teenagers, not a true love story.

They think they're in love. Thats the point. Juliet is only 13, so it's clearly only a whimsical thing.

I am sorry, but did Mr. Consideration just call one of the most revered plays ever, bad?

Why? So it's about two horny teenagers, I thought that was the point? What is the complaint, other than your classmates are morons (something which I can sympathize with), but that is hardly a complaint against the play?

Or we could just assume that most of the other civilizations evolved a form of telepathic voice transmission by which when they talk Earth humans interpret as English :P
