Finally got to watch Pride and Prejudice, the mini-series with Colin Firth. Yup, there's oodles of yumminess there. fosteronfilm was perplexed as to what it was I (and all the other Firth-fans) found so delectable about Mr. Darcy. I summed it up as "sexy-but-vulnerable-arrogance," but I don't think he gets it.
Also saw the new King Kong, courtesy Netflix, and I really liked it. When I saw it was 3+ hours, I thought I'd be clamoring "big monkey already, dammit!" through the whole beginning, but surprising myself, I thought it was well paced. The characters had depth, even (or perhaps especially) Jack Black's, and I am Naomi Watts's newest fan. Not only is she teh hotness, but I'm astonished how much emotion she managed to convey with so few lines. And, of course, there were indeed many excellent big monkey scenes. Although why anyone would ever want to go to Skull Island is beyond me. Giant leggy worms . . . *shudder*
It appears the Tangent forum has been discovered by spammers, and they are seriously ticking me off. There's especially one repeat spammer who I've IDed and reported to their ISP's abuse address, and he STILL keeps posting his stupid little spam links. I delete them as soon as they pop up, and I've asked our webmistress if there's a way to block individual IP addresses but haven't heard back from her yet. Anyone know of anything else I can do? Argh. So annoying.
Totally there with you. But he was surprisingly good in this role. Think Tom Arnold in True Lies. Before I saw Arnold in that, I would've pegged him as being an absolutely talentless schmuck. Now I know he can pull off at least one decent role.
Actually, the acting and directing in King Kong were first rate in general.
There might be an anti-spam component that one can incorporate into the forums, but it would take some research. And, unless Jennifer has lots of time, it's probably more work than anyone has time for. I can speak from experience to the amount of time it takes to maintain an anti-spam system for email. I would imagine that a forum system would be worse.
