While the film was good, for me it wasn't as good as the first one. Why? Well, some of the wire-work was *painfully* obvious (very B-grade HKAT), some of the blue screening was pretty damn obvious (unforgivable for a film of such a huge SPFX budget), and some of the CG was just plain embarassingly bad. A few scenes were very incongruous and out of place. The plot was very different from the first one, which I applaude, but the ending was a bit contrived.
Don't misunderstand, it was a fun film. And you can't go wrong with an 18 min long car chase. But it was not what all the hype was building it up to be. Basically, I would see X-men 2 again before I saw Matrix:Reloaded again. If you're into that kind of thing.
What else has been up? Not a whole lot. Slowly coming up with ideas for a potential X-Men RPG (three troupes of 3-5 players, each with three sessions). Finished reading X-Men Essential Collections volumes 1-4, and have been left with a hunger for more.
Some guy in the department has been sending e-mails inviting people to Bible Group meetings, and asking permission to 'pray' for us. I find this rather offensive, especially as if I tried a stunt like this I would cop a huge amount of flack for it. Sometimes it sucks to belong to a very not-mainstream religion.
Had another pointless fight with Jye last night which was not resolved because he fell asleep.
Whole lot of work to do today. Very lazy. I sense problems.
