Most of friends who watched it didn't enjoy it at all. But I intend to know if the same would be the case for me...I'll watch it as soon as I get the chance.

That's great, Hermit. I'll probably only be there Saturday, so catch me then.

On an unrelated note, some people may be interested in this:

Just read it, a fine work indeed. Love the strategy used and also the way personal magic works... But what I liked most was the double-tempo in the writing, really increases the feeling of "seeing" the events as we re delving inside the actions of a character who is already retelling them...

An interesting analysis, didn't know DC was planning a reboot, got to say though, somehow it sounded too familiar, all this people scared of superheroes and some of the twistings ; like Jon Jonzz, on the Stormwatch. Superman's changing can be a fresh air change for me at least, as I can't really stand the usual pansy one. Maybe I'm wrong bnt somehow I thought almost all the time, while reading the article in Marvel's Civil War , not pretending to starts a DC vs Marvel topic. Is sad the the only DC hero I really like; Green Arrow, seems to have gotten a different turn. I think I'll stick to Kingdom Come arch, really like that one.

Hi, Richard!

Will dragons alive and undead be playing major roles in The Masked Witches?

Hi, Dennis.

No. I'm sure Aoth and the gang aren't done with dragons, but the latter are not a major focus in the next book.

Nice to hear that. [I've been seeing a lot of dragons in fiction lately, not just in FR].

A fun read, indeed, but too be honest since Jaws I don't watch any movie including sharks on it... also I don't watch any movie including 3D on it

2D is my choice for many movies, also. I'd rather have brighter colors than 3D, and that seems to be the tradeoff, But when it's a B movie that I expect to go nuts throwing crazy 3D effects at me, then I'll pay the extra money and wear the plastic glasses.

Good point, in a B movie is always reconforting to have some entrails flying at you from time to time. But I agree in the brighter colors issue.

I don't like wearing the glasses for 3D... Especially now that I need glasses because of being nearsighted.

I once pondered whether there were any adult films made in 3D, but I was afraid to search to find out!

I watch only fantasy and action movies in IMAX. Other genres, in regular cinemas. Strangely, the seats in some regular cinemas are better than in IMAX.

I have no serious eyesight problems, but I don't like wearing those plastic glasses.

I have heard that there's 3D porn, but I haven't seen any of it. It does seem to me that the aspects of porn that best lend themselves to the 3D treatment are not necessarily those that most appeal to a straight guy, so perhaps I haven't cheated myself out of all that much.
