I watched the "Dwight's Speech" episode of The Office since medic8r said to. It was entertaining.

I used it as an excuse to try Zune Marketplace on my PC. Unfortunately, Zune Marketplace is really ghetto. I can't seem to share the episode with my Xbox 360, which I assumed would be very easy. I shared the media, but when I try to access it on my 360, it says that there may be a problem with the license, but on my PC, there's no indication of any issue. Also, you're supposed to be able to restore purchased media, so I thought I'd have my PC download all of the videos I've purchased on Xbox Live Marketplace in order to avoid using up Xbox 360 hard drive space. However, only three out of the many, many videos were available to be downloaded. I can't see a reason why the others are unavailable, or why those three were available. So yeah, overall it's a joke of an experience so far. DRM loses again.

Watched Terminator: Salvation this morning. Pretty good surround sound effects, decent acting, with an OK plot.

I also watched it this morning. Certainly better than T3..though the plot was kind of weak. Acting was poor in some spots, very good in others. My biggest complaint was not enough character development. I didn't know who some of the people were or where they came from. The audio (Blu-ray, I'm using dts core) was aggressive and full...worthy of an A+. Video was excellent as well.

Hi All,

"The Pentagon Wars"

An oldie, but a goodie. Not one for special effects or anything, but anyone with an engineering background will probably laugh so hard their sides spit.

If you're a project manager, you will probably cry and say its just too realistic to be funny.

It's compulsory viewing for people on my team.

Also, "Forgotten Silver" - directed by Peter Jackson is a pretty good documentary on early NZ film (like early 1900s).

Neither are vids for the picture or sound quality, but worth taking a gander at.

Loc: It's all about the location.
I watched "Pan's Labyrinth" on Blu ray last night, I picked up the movie from Amz Canada the other day, with a few others. Anyway, I wasn't sure what to expect from the movie, only that it had something to do with a Spanish fairy tale set in WWII and that's basically what it was although I would suggest that it would traumatize any l'il ones who heard or saw it. The Captain was quite the brutal fellow! Definitely a different type of movie and in Spanish with English subtitles, no less. The girl who played the little Princess(Ofelia) was an extraordinary young actress by the name of Ivana Baquero.

I bought Pan's Labyrinth on DVD when it first came out a little under 18 months ago. It's still one of my favorite stories. I love how Ofelia skips around the horror of real life, but then replaces it with another horror within her imagination.
