Another I saw AntiTrust diary

I went to AntiTrust with my friend voltron last night. It was fun, I guess. I walked into the theater all psyched out and ready for a kick-ass movie, but I guess the stupid ads they show before the previews depressed me. The previews they showed sucked too. The movie started, and I felt like the movie sucked already.

It was an 'okay' film, with some interesting plot twists, I guess. Anthony (aka voltron) liked it, actually, despite the fact that he seemed to think otherwise before we walked in. We move agree that it might not be an excellent movie about the Free Software (Open Source) movement, it is an good/ acceptable starting point to get non-techie people interested in Open Systems.

I think he is right that the movie was actually technically quite accurate, for a Hollywood movie. I also remembered that there were definitely scenes cut out from the movie that you can see in the online trailer... ie. the scene where you see Rachel Leigh Cook in her underwear. Oh well.

Claire Forlani is so hot.


Iron-Chef and Giant Lopsters

Saw Iron Chef with tony after the movie. They cooked giant lopsters... Iron Chef Italian vs. Tokyo-style Chinese cuisine chef. Of course the Iron Chef won, he definitely had the cooler appearance sequence. They show him raise to the Kitchen Stadium holding a bright red ripe tomato... with a full orchestra (or was it just the strings section) surrounding him.

I love Japanese TV.

ps. I wish raph would let me change my username, obviously even something like my friend voltron (Anthony) thinks I'm duncan on advogato, when I'm still mustapha, that being my old nick that I used for 1.5 years.

Hands too cold, must stop typing.
