I've just seen the announcement that London have won the bid to host the Olympic Games in 2012. Great news!

Anyway, I saw War of the Worlds last night with Louise and thought it was absolutely brilliant. Gripping throughout I think it does a really good job of showing how useless a screaming mass of panicking people really is. A couple of questionable moments, such as the blatant product placement right at the beginning of the movie, ("You should get TiVo, its awesome!") or the fact that no-one dies in the tree (I don't want to spoil it, so I'll leave it at that and you will know what I mean when you see it) but apart from that, fantastic. A bit on the scary side for a 12A rating I would say though.
