I really, really want to see this because, well, it mentions Ireland. But at the same time I fear it and what it might do to my poor country. Apparently the heroine is adopted into a family of Irish terrorists who manage to get blown up in front of her thus causing her (not unnaturally, I feel) severe mental trauma. In short, she goes around the bend a bit and then flies back to Korea to drown herself there because otherwise there wouldn't be a story she now hates the Shannon, that mighty body of quite lovely water.* And then she manages to fall in love with her brother, which doesn't surprise me at all as she has no step-brother handy. There is also cheating and things and some actress forced to star in soft porn to feed her family.

Anyone seen it? On a scale of 1-10 how much melodrama do you think they'll fit in? And will Ireland's name be sullied?



* This bit I have made up entirely. No, not the drowning bit, the bit about hating the Shannon.

Warriors!

I went to Best Buy to see if I could find the second Bourne movie. I was denied but then they decided to offer up something even better: Warriors, a 50 movie DVD set of exciting films from the 50s and 60s. It includes such wonders as Mole Men Against the Son of Hercules, Cleopatra's Daughter, Fury of Achilles, Devil of the Desert Against the Son of Hercules... The list of wonders never really stops with 50 movies of this sort.

I MAY NEVER LEAVE MY HOUSE AGAIN.

If I were you I'd defriend me now and save yourself the inevitable posts about precisely when Cleopatra had time to have a daughter and* what Roger Moore is doing in a tunic and sandals. The Spring Waltz subtitling crisis will be as nothing to compared to this.

Oh, and I got the second season of Rome (they have it for $60 if you're thinking about getting it) but that is a trifling thing compared to the glories that await me with my 50 movies of completely inauthentic and cheaply filmed classical action.

* Let's pretend I never forgot about Cleopatra's daughter, shall we? I plan on denying it if anyone ever brings it up.
