"hi EJ, you will have noticed that in an earlier comment i waxed lyrical about the VERY AMERICAN sherlock holmes movie. as a quasi american writing from new zealand i am totally enthusiastic about IN THE LOOP, but it's really just the usual stuff, great britishTV fare. it leaves a lot of the US stuff eating dust. and AVATAR is truly only the "first talkie" of a new age, a company prospectus, "look what we can do with 3D now." wow. do i need to wear goggles to watch this on my IPAD? it makes my eyes feel funny. remember those funny computerised picture books 20 years ago where you had to look at the pages cross-eyed and then you saw 3D shapes emerging from the page? well --where are they now?"
