In a movie far far away...

New Movie: Dungeons & Dragons

I feel compelled to put some words on the new D&D movie that has been released a week ago... I do not intent to write a review here nor do I claim that this little message is anything more than my opinion.

Now about the movie, let just says that the movie stand in the pure tradition of Hollywood (where they insist more on the special effects and much less on the story line). I know that there is a book on the movie, which is (experience tell here) probably much better (just try to compare the book Jurassic Park to the movie of the same name).

It still worths seeing if your truly addicted to good vs evil story, otherwise I would recommend you to stay away and either read the book or to wait for the adaptation of Lord of the Rings to come out...

(A review of the movie by Declan McCullagh can be found here)

The Armageddon clock

Welcome Year 2000

I am feeling a bit disappointed that we didn't get screwed back into the Dark Age. Apparently, the Y2k bug was that there wasn't a Y2k bug... It's some sort of paradox; a bug in a bug or perhaps the sand of the Y2k Armageddon clock got damp thus the bug didn't wake on time, got stuck into a snow storm or something and couldn't make it on time. It's still too soon to know what happen to him, let just hope he's fine...

Happy Y2k,
