|A terrible thing, taking photos after dark (lighting is awful).|
|Simplicity is always the key.|
The main reason why I was in London was for the Ray Harryhausen Myths and Legends exhibition at the Film Museum. It was awe inspiring, and the fact that the majority of the armatures and puppets on show were the original models Ray himself animated with quite simply gave me a reason to cross my legs. Which was challenging when I was jumping around the room pressing my face up to each glass cabinet and drooling. I now understand the expression that mother of three gave me upon asking her to photograph me standing next to the iconic Medusa used in Clash of the Titans (1981).

To regain some stability within this post I must remember that there were apparently three major topics I was going to converse with you about. I have no idea where I am so I will keep ploughing through whatever pops into my head (much like when Ghosbuster Ray Stantz had the notion of thinking up the most harmless thing he could possibly imagine, and we all know how that turned out).
I have been confronted with the issue about Star Wars in 3D. Now, when it comes to Star Wars I realise I am not a die hard fan (of whom could easily describe and label the interior mechanism of a lightsaber). But I can tell you that Princess Leia was held prisoner in cell block AA-23 and that Ewoks were created for more of a toy-friendly merchandise (and also because the original plan to have an armada of Wookies was flawed due to their honed intuition with technology - Lucas wanted a bunch of tree huggin' hippies to take down the mighty Empire with sticks). God damn Ewoks.
My point is, Lucas has only brought out the 3D versions to deepen his pockets with not just my money, but my cock as well. He knows I'll stick it up there... but not today George. I know how the prequels go. I know the tragic dialogue that is the worst love story ever written with political garbage thrown in to give the planet Coruscent a purpose. Jake Lloyd sucks. Hayden Christensen sucks. And I just can't see the appeal in having Jar Jar Binks babbling like a drunken Jamaican in 3 dimensions. This review might sum it up a little better. GO!
I do apologise for such an outburst. Those who know me will understand my passion for Star Wars. All I can say is that it's going to be 3 long years before Episode IV will be released. And I will most definitely choose 2D. But in three years time there could be a whole new cinema experience.
I mean, in 2015 we get hover-boards.
