Saw Thor the other day. Loads of fun, very pretty to look at (both scenery & actors :D ) Only small problem I did have with it was that the main person (Chris Hemsworth) was a regular on one of the evening soaps here, and I always find it hard to reconcile at first that actors from our evening soaps...

This has encouraged me to sign up there, as I keep hearing about it, and SLOC & I are hopeless at cataloging our books (it's hard enough to keep them shelved correctly :D ).

Saw Hop today - suitable pre-Easter viewing we thought. :D It was a fun way to spend a couple of hours, and I reaaallly wanted to take home the smallest Pink Beret (she with the allergies & puffer :) ) Both SLOC & I decided that Russell Brand was way less annoying if you couldn't actually see him *g...

He's finished shouting at the game (his team lost :( )

He recommends Kill City at 119 Swanston St (between Collins & Bourke Sts).

Also City Basement Books 342 Flinders St website here

And there are others, but they're more out of the central city area.

Rango - the animated western with Johnny Depp (and others... :) ) SLOC & I thooughly enjoyed ourselves by picking out all the other film references! Best of the non-Westerns were Apocalypse Now & the trench run in Star Wars (I nearly laughed myself sick over that one).

SLOC & I were trying to work out how Jeff Bridges got a Best Actor nom, but Hailee Stanfield got a Best Supporting nom, where they were both equal with amout of screen-time.
