Carnivale love

Watched the first two episodes of season 2 of Carnivale last night. Can I just say “Wow!”? I mean, I love the first series but BAM! Second series starts and BAM! mysteries answered, characters developed, amazing shiznit in the hizzle.
I’ve been saying shiznit inside my head for a while now. How do you like it?

I’m reading Piratica by Tanith Lee which is an Over The Top pirate novel about a parallel history with a sassy spunk of a lead chick. The main guy is called Felix Phoenix. Tanith Lee seems to have had fun naming the characters in this book, so it’s hard to take it real serious, but I’m pretty sure it was never a serious novel.

Batman Begins today. I’m not meant to be spending money but I can’t resist. It’s Batman!

Also out today…the film festival guide. I am a bit sad that I’ll not be able to do my normal attendance justice this year, but that’s the price I pay for going to Rarotonga. Here I come Howl’s Moving Castle, Steamboy and Woodsman! Appleseed and Ghost in the Shell: Innocence are also screening for anime fans. I’m also looking forward to movies which aren’t animated or about criminals, but I don’t know what they are yet.

I might not be able to see Woodsman actually, given the screening times, but I’m sure it’ll come back. It has Kevin Bacon in it after all.

Film festival website has all the info up now, including said screening times.

  1. The Woodsman, from all accounts, is very good – generating most of its thriller tension from an understanding of character, and playing the tension subtly.
    However. Dark. From what I hear. I want to see it thought, but just thought I’d put in my second-hand .02c

  2. Carnivale – Lee offered and I forgot to say yes to a copy of season 1 – please oh please?
    Shiznit – Not entirely sure you can pull it off luv 🙂
    Batman – sigh, waiting till Tuesday. I’d like to see it right this second, but a sick lad who also needs to study? not the best mix there.

  3. I think The Woodsman is a brilliant film, although I’m aware it’s not to everyone’s taste. If you’re the kind of person who believes that paedophiles are incurable and/or the epitome of evil, then you won’t like it. I’m always unpleasantly surprised how many people fit into this category.
