Alien: the director’s cut was on Sky One last night although I couldn’t really tell you what the difference is between that and the theatrical release as I haven’t seen it in a while. And I missed the first half cause I didn’t know it was on.
It is still a good film, still makes you jump, but aren’t those special effects really noticeable. And the cutting between fake robot Ash and real actor Ash were very obvious.
Although, that didn’t really detract from the film Not the way the ropey cgi in Narnia did. Possibly because the effects were very much secondary to the story. Even the alien didn’t look all that great, and in comparison to a lot of films today, the ending wasn’t very climactic was it?
There are posters up all over town with pictures of the leaders of the 1916 Rising, and underneath a sentence reads “murdered by British Imperialists”. Makes me want to print off a picture of Michael Collins with the line murdered by betrayers of the Irish Republic
Course he wasn’t, he was killed in military action. And the leaders of the 1916 Rising weren’t murdered either. They were executed for a failed uprising against the government of the time. Semantics?
Work is busy busy busy. Loads of students around, and quite a few of the lecturers are cleaning out their offices before summer and bringing down donations for the library. I’ve two rather large piles of books to be added to the catalogue. But because it is exam time the students who work in the library are on reduced hours, understandably, and so I don’t have that much time away from the desk.
I’m probably way behind on my paperwork too
