(no subject)

It's strange the things that strike you about a movie. There are many striking moments in Lair of the White Worm, and one that stayed with me was the sword crashing into the drum set, after bisecting the flying woman. Looking back at it now, that's not even what happens, exactly. Fortunately the movie remains entirely watchable, with a strange mix of high weirdness and practicality. Out heroes might as well be characters in some modern day RPG, the way they progress from a few clues and dream sequences to the big guns (being industrial size sound systems and a hand grenade).

It was also fun to see Peter Capaldi from the recent Torchwood thingie as a mad Scot, though I confess to not recognising him until the end credits.

Speaking of drum kits, I guess I should give up my vague ambitions of making Rock Band and sundry into a party game. Still, K and I are now rocking out to GH Metallica. I still prefer the RB interface, but it's looking pretty good so far.
