Unexpected Social Commentary 

Go and see WALL-E. Now. Even if you already have.

Very cool and clever movie, and quite emotionally engaging, considering the two main characters are animated robots. I laughed (a lot), I cried (a bit) and came out feeling much better and uplifted than when I went in. (maybe not hard - I've not been having much fun lately)

And I think, coz of the positive emotional impact, I think it's my pick for best movie I've seen this year.

And the short was very funny. Simple characters, appropriate setting and a clever conceit used for a lot of rapid-fire jokes and it's done before it outstays it's welcome.

South Park Freak Out 

I'm not quite sure why, but tonight's episdoe of South Park, featuring Britney Spears with no head, is freaking me out. I mean, really, really freaking me out. Hoping The Mighty Boosh will make me feel better.

Nope. Not helping.
