Media Extravaganza - stuff what I has seen recently

The halloween episode of Season 3 of Community was great fun - a nice mashup of different styles. Last week's was also rather good - multiple timelines splitting from the same event, tying together nicely at the end. I continue to enjoy the way that the writers constantly fuck with audience expectations and manage to both push the limits of what you can do in a TV show while remaining grounded character-wise. It works very well for me.

Lion King 3D was pretty epic. It's one of my favourite Disney movies. The 3D worked very well, the movie was as awesome as ever, and I cried at exactly the same point that I always do. Jeremy Irons does evil spectacularly well, and I had somehow forgotten that Darth Vader is Ferris Bueller's father.

Borderlands continues to be fun to play - I've started again with Julie, and we've been carving our way through skags (alien dog-things), blowing up bandits and running over anything that wanders into our path. The driving has been particularly fun, as she's been in the driving seat, while I've taken gunner, picking things off from long distance. After her nervousness about playing something violent and FPS-related she surprised me by taking "Brick", a large chap who is apparently made of muscles and speicalises in charging into hand-to-hand combat. There's something...exciting about watching your fiancee punch bad guys to death :->

I really want to get to see We Need To Talk About Kevin while it's still in the cinema. I might try and encourage Julie in that direction over the next few days. I loved the book, and although she bounced off of it really hard that was more to do with the writing style than anything else.
