Hope I get some free time to write up some of the cool experiences (nothing much untoward) in Tokyo. Either before I forget or before I die of them. Ho ho.

If this post reads like a twitter, I'm sorry dudes. I'm back in Singapore for 24hrs, laundry is in the machine and off to see Inception now.

Due to a miscalculation (Sat -> Sun = 8 days! Who woulda thunk?) I ran out of blood-pressure tablets last night, so chances are that I will heart have a heart attack or stroke out during this one. Luckily I have a time-bomb on my 'pewter that will wipe out all my porn should I not type in a code-word every 37 years.

Shit, gotta go.


Addendum: Inception was AWESOME - loved it. The best movie I've seen all day! Mind you, on the plane I'd only watched (for some masochistic reason) Zombieland, and the first three minutes of both the 1981 version and the 2010 version of The Crap Of The Titans. So...

No, seriously, it's terrific. As my buddy said, Christopher Nolan doesn't treat the audience like we're all children or idiots.

OK, and so to bed. To sleep, perchance to dream... of spinning tops.

you use an apple computer. you don't need no time bomb.

and zombieland was better than inception! you shoulda watched zombieland on a larger screen not on a plane. your tv at least. i'm not normally a zombie movie watcher but this was just hilarious.

Knob: Was on the verge of deleting this comment as silly spam due to the patent ignorance and tastelessness it revealed, but that would be rather fascistoid of me wouldn't it? Yeh, even the unschooled and unappreciative of greatness, they too shall be heard. BTW, have you considered kick-starting your old blog so I don't have to put up with this childish drivel here? Then I can come over and annoy you with intelligent comments.

Zombieland was derivative crap - think anything with the dumb as fuck guy from Juno mixed with the worst parts of Shaun of The Dead. No person should be made to watch it again - big screen, small screen iMax, whatever. That'd be cruel and unusual in extremis!

So it sounds like you're saying Zombieland was better BECAUSE it was (*not*) funny? The Three Stooges Go To Mars was better as well? (it wasn't funny, but it tried to be.)

Inception is an instant classic of serious entertainment, whereas Zombieland is the twinkie of zombie movies - light, tasteless and suitable only for consumption by those unconcerned for their health.

Re: Inception... Someone explain how the zero-g sequences in I'n were done! No, don't! I want to remain in this state of spiritual awe as long as possible (like until I gits the religion agin!)

You need a rethink M. Knobster. Expect a knock on the door at 4am. No don't, it's meant to be unexpected.

Vitriol! Angry young man.

expat@large said...

Young??? Now you ARE trying to make me angry!! ;~)

p.s. there were no bad parts in Shaun Of The Dead. Maybe it's just that Woody Harrelson bugs me.

knobby said...

Chill... Just a couple of movies.

expat@large said...

Chill? But I was doing so well! I thought... never mind.

actually i really dislike woody harrelson myself so the 3.5/5 rating is in spite of him, not because. haha
