Whohoo! Even though they may delay, storm, unlike the end of the world, did eventually come! Oh happy day!

I have to say the graphics are better than I expected... pseudo 3D and all that.
"Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground, Silly monkeys, give them thumbs, they make a club and beat their brother down. How they survive, so misguided, is a mystery. Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here" - Tool

Tim Minchin is awesome also he did an earlier live DVD called So Live there is an interesting correlation between his fame and application of eyeliner...

A must watch film is "The Invention of Lying" 2009 it stars real life atheist Ricky Gervais, as he lives in a world where no-one has as yet ever lied (so subsequently have never believed in God) - he accidentally tells a lie then realises he can use it to his own personal gain which eventually leads to him inventing "the man in the sky" after trying to make his mother feel better about dying. My description doesn't do it justice -

Agora is a nice enough historical drama about how the philosopher Hypatia gets screwed over by religiots. Released in 2009, it may be old news by now, but still recommendable.

I liked the bit where she predates Kepler by a thousand years. :-)
