Mongol, which has been out a month or two, is a pretty good Russian (wtf) film about Genghis Khan.

Makes me sooooooo want to do it again, but it's damn expensive 'cause you have to bleach your hair first, and with my hair being longer now, I'd probably have to buy double of everything
Ha, awesome. What I like about my pale hair is it's so easy to dye. What I don't like is that it almost always looks fucking ridiculous!

It was DC or nothing for me. Not terribly reasonable.

Perhaps I'm underestimating U23D's greatness; I would go to great lengths to see U2 live (hell, I'm even signing up for a U2.com membership in the fall), but U23D simply doesn't count as such, to me anyway.

For some reason, at a few moments after midnight, Interference craps out on me. Anyone else have that happen?

Oh yeah! I saw ads for that in Melbourne and read a few articles about it. Yeah, wouldn't mind seeing that.

Off the top of my head, I've been to four movies at the cinemas in the last three years. Hype is one way to put me off (unless it's bad, in which case I'm oddly tempted to go for lulz). And yeah, like you say, so much is just cliche.

U23D was, really, just a film for those less hardcore U2 fans so that they'd (hopefully) not bother buying tickets when U2 do tour next year. That or it'd encourage them to buy tickets. :\

Yeah. I'd love to know why. I wonder if it's the database re-synching or something?
