Things I liked about yesterday

Things I caught or saw or hear yesterday.

Midnight in the garden of good and evil - really brings home how the visuals of cinema can shape our feel for a region or place.

Disclosure - not a very good movie, but it has a vaguely engineery feel to it and does suggest a great idea for a sequel. Let Demi Moore come back to try after ten years and try and buy the company but Dear God let the technology it is all tied in with be better than Cd-Rom's.

And then The Stand started with Don't Fear the Reaper by the Blue Oyster Cult. Just how good is that track!

hmmm.. Surely Midnight in the garden of good and evil is a book first and movie second. Although I imagine more people saw the film than read the book. So its a case of a second medium interpreting a first and imposing an image in a wider audience.

Kinda like 300, the movie inspired by a comic, inspired by a movie inspired by a book of a tale of a battle
