2x05 The Big Crunch Part 2
I do like a good, well-written drama where none-more-moral Christians end up aborting, murdering and causing suicide. There are few more open to corruption for personal gain than the none-more-moral-than-we.
Once again, I thoroughly look forward to Fitz getting his hands on them in Part 3.

The Speaker
1x08 Episode 8 [season finale]
Duncan? Duncan?! No. He should've gone out weeks ago, if not right at the start, and certainly didn't deserve to win. While his speeches were well written his delivery was like a used car salesman crossed with a spin doctor, and as endlessly irritating as that sounds. Irene, on the other hand, spoke well and intelligently, touching without being irritating. What a mistake.
As for the series, though marred in early rounds by tasks that weren't really relevant to the series' aim, and though they picked an appalling winner, it had a very positive message and was clearly a positive experience for many involved. It wouldn't hurt to see them have another go.

Cut (2009)
[#20a in 100 Films in a Year 2009]
For more on this film, and to watch it for free, look here.
Is it a film or an advert? I'll post my review soon and debate it (a little) there.


10 Funniest Typos ever
They're not all great (I'm not even sure one's a typo), but others are worth it -- "Reliability ...always upholding the highest standards for every detal".

12 Worst Photoshop Mistakes Ever
Again, I'm not sure they're the worst ever -- surely the Minister who had himself Photoshopped into the photo of an event he didn't bother to attend is a bigger "Photoshop mistake" than a poor attempt at making someone fatter/thinner -- but they are funny.

Cool poster redesigns for classic films
(from Live for Films)
Retro/arthouse poster designs for classic (and modern classic) movies. Those given the treatment include Die Hard, The Dark Knight, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and four others. They're by a designer/artist called Olly Moss, whose website contains much more of his work, including a number of nice T-shirt designs.
