I ordered the new Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack and the book The Black Swan from Amazon.com today. Woohoo!
I saw the film Children of Men last night. I’d give it a 7 out of 10. In contrast to Copying Beethoven‘s horrible cinematography, this film had brilliant cinematography, with superb long single-shot takes (or at least seemingly single-shot takes). It is some of the best cinematography I have ever seen. That said, the story left me wanting a bit more. Although it had a good ending (well, a Pyrrhic victory ending at least), I still felt it was incomplete. I want to know what happens further on down the line, where are the characters five years or so down the road? How does the world get better? Overall though, good film, I liked it.
In other news, I just found out today that Lloyd Alexander died on May 17 at the age of 83. 🙁
