I was rediscovering all my digital music the other day, shuffle play on the entire drive, and something surprising popped up. The Il Postino soundtrack. Not only is that film beautiful, but the soundtrack features the score with famous voices reading some of Pablo Neruda’s poetry, and a few of them are incredible and heart

Recently I noticed a problem with my PlayStation 4. When watching a Blu-ray with one of the new audio formats (DTS-HD Master Audio or Dolby TrueHD) it would only play in stereo. Play a game, stream something, or watch a DVD or Blu-ray with an audio track of Dolby Digital or DTS and they played
I was surprised that even in the cheap economy class, called World Traveller by British Airways, that we received their new video on demand during our trip to San Francisco. Well we did and there was a good, not great, selection of films to choose from.
So I picked three titles that I hadn’t seen as yet. However, I didn’t feel it was worth reviewing them over at Filmstalker or on their own as the screen is something like seven inches and the audio wasn’t that great so it really is unfair to do so.
Instead, here’s a quick round up of what I saw.
What do you do when other sites are picking up your content and they aren’t even giving you credit? Just a simple source or via link?
It’s something that is really clear cut if a site is copying your entire article, because it’s provable then, they have all your words, but what if you broke a story to the Internet and very soon afterwards another site has the same story, reworded, with no source reference, and they couldn’t have found it anywhere else other than your source, and they haven’t even credited that.
During the Edinburgh International Film Festival this year I was lucky enough to see the documentary An Inconvenient Truth starring Al Gore, the rightful President of the United States of America. I was shocked and moved to tears, not at Gore being pushed out of the Presidential elections, but at the harsh reality portrayed in the documentary.
No conspiracy theories here, there’s facts and undisputed figures, the shocking truth that we’re on the brink of self destruction and the fact that the US are doing everything they can to refute these facts.
What’s on today then? Shoot the Messenger, H6 Diary of an Assassin, The Killing of John Lennon and Sundays in August. A fair mixture indeed and no more than a half hour between showings. It’s interesting that going through the festival I’ve come up with so many suggestions on how to make it better, and
Another early start and a day of four films at the EIFF, with the final ending about 21:30. There’s a continual feeling of tiredness that’s just hanging around, and I’m yawning within a few minutes of getting up, but it is enjoyable, I’m seeing some great movies, and not so many bad ones. I think
Well I had hoped for a lot of rest last night but my fiancee and her bridesmaid-to-be had been out celebrating all day so that foiled plans of getting a restful early night! There was a big event party last night with a bunch of celebraties and a host of press and other non-important guests.
Well I was supposed to go and see four films today starting about 09:45, but unfortunately an early morning finish from writing and an early start to get more done resulted in a splitting migraine. For those of you who aren’t migraine sufferers they can be intense, and I ended up with these horrible brightly
It’s an early start again, and four movies today. Between two films this afternoon I have an eight minute gap, luckily also just a one screen walk! Well I made it. Three films so far and that dash between screens was easy enough. There’s just time to do a little writing before the Isreali film,
