    I know I've seen The Matrix 2, but I can barely remember anything other than Monica Belluci in latex, which I'm sure is the only thing worth remembering.
    I have absolutely no recollection of The Matrix 3, so I can't be certain if I have even seen it.

    The original film is cool though, I might watch it again tonight.

    You're giving me flashbacks to when I tried to get people to read Neuromancer and telling them about the similarities and just getting called a conspiracy theorist. ; _ ;
    This was also back in the day when you had to explain that H.P. Lovecraft was neither a romance author, or had any connection to HP computers.

    But do you prefer that to "LOL check out my CAT-thulhu plushie"? ::zetsubou::

    I never actually read any of William Gibson. Maybe I'll get around to it sometime.

    I certainly preferred it to kvetching over him being 'problematic'.

    Reminds me that a girl I used to know who borrowed my copy of The Call of Chtulhu and never gave it back. She went full-Tumblr about ten years ago and we lost contact somewhere along the way. I wonder if it is just sitting there on her bookshelf, the very name Lovecraft slowly driving her insane.

    Not that she would ever had read it, given that they don't recognise anything in their liturgical canon outside of the Harry Potter corpus.

    Speaking of Monica Belluci, I have several French colleagues who insist that she became every french boy's wet dream with her butt-clevage dress in Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, even the gay ones.
    I have nothing else to add, other than that I'll probably see the new Matrix movie.

    I'll tell you what, his cat was certainly not named "Cat-thulhu" ::meev::
    S.T. Joshi is swimming upstream by remaining a strong Lovecraft booster, it seems. His editions are still the best.

    There is precisely one picture of this on the entire internet and it wasn't worth finding :lol: "Butt cleavage" is, for the record, precisely as ridiculous as it sounds.

    Tonight's movie, I think, is:
    Maciste all'inferno

    "Maciste is the most virtuous man on earth, which worries the devils to no end. So they send their best inducer up to earth to get him into trouble and they have a tough time managing it. Finally, they get Maciste down to hell but because he's so strong he fights all the devils single handedly."

    Watched the complete "My Fair Lady" here, even including the second tape. Who would have suspected that Eliza ends up

    returning to Henry Higgins

    in the end?
    In truth I had never actually watched past the point where she storms out of the house, I think that's where Tape 1 ended :lol:

    So I re-watched it, it's ok. If you are going to re-watch it you can start at the lobby shoot-out and enjoy the last 30 minutes or so of the movie without really missing anything.

    Which is the same thing I thought when I first saw it back in 1999.

    Is that the one with Audrey Hepburn?

    I remember a substitute teacher putting that on for us back in high school. My buddy didn't want to watch it and so he dropped to the floor and commando crawled out of the classroom without the teacher noticing.

    Yes indeed, now available on just one videodisc rather than 2 VHS tapes.

    It was actually dubbed into many languages, songs included - except in Japanese where they put the original English back on for the songs only.
