Just beat Max Payne on the Game Bod Advance (via emulation) yesterday.
Through the darkness of future past

I've just finished reading Pax Romana by Adrian Goldsworthy. It's about life during the first two centuries of the Roman Empire, and to a lesser extent the Republic. A very interesting read that explains life was for extended times remarkably peaceful, considering the popular image of Rome as constant warfare and bloodshed.

I saw that for the first time the other day. Very good film. Good ensemble cast although my only gripe is that some characters get more limelight than the others, some characters (like Martin Freeman and Joanna Page) go almost the whole film without much screen time.

It’s a bit like 4 weddings and a funeral or booze cruise- it’s got everyone in it. The saying that British TV and film reuses the same 12 actors is true, :lol:

I’m pretty sure Hugh Grant is in almost all of Richard Curtis’ films!

Every time I hear the name Hugh Jackman, I always hear "Huge Ackman."

Then I wonder if he has a huge ackman.

He spreads rumours that his Ackman’s large, but it isn’t really.
