I did a complete re-write of the Black Christmas plot segment on Wikipedia because the current one was pretty mediocre. Hopefully, it won't get removed. :?

Sorry to hear that, go_leafs. Still, try to enjoy your Christmas even if everyone around you is arguing.

According to the Christie website, Three Act Tragedy is going to be premiering on the 3rd January on ITV. I'm so stoked. :)

I never realized just how truly fun it is to reveal big plot twists to the audience and then observe their reactions until I put up last night's chapter of my Umineko fanfic. Save for one person who saw it coming, the typical reaction can easily be summed up in two words: "HOLY SH*T!"
Well, no one said that , but in terms of context, that was pretty much what it amounted to.

I most likely won't be online tomorrow so I just thought I'd say Merry Christmas early. I hope everyone has a good one.

I've just come from seeing the 1996 Titanic movie, and I found it fantastically terrifying and exciting! Although they could've made the interior scenes a bit more realistic... as well, I found that one of the characters was named Alice Cleaver - but wasn't she in the 'Third Good Detective Game of Clue'? Now I know where the name came from! But the exterior shots were excellent.

I enjoyed the movie too, but all in all, it was pretty bad. So many glaring errors. How did the ice end up on the port-side boat deck?

Also, it's hard to feel sympathy for Zeta-Jones' character. Her husband turned out to be a pretty decent guy, yet we are supposed to feel sympathy for her when she suddenly decides to run away with her secret lover off to Bolivia and ruin her husband's life?

The Sherlock Holmes movie has been praised so far (???) and since it's unfair to judge something without ever seeing the finished product (even once it's been released), I just may see it.

Is there a detective element at all or just action? I saw Ebert gave it three stars, so maybe there IS a glimmer of hope...
