Thesis/TV/Film

I should e-mail Rick about the prospective resource list for the thesis, but I'm feeling lazy at the moment. Must, must do it tomorrow so he has time to reply, since he'll be away from Australia Day onwards for a week. I'm hoping to start writing this thing in February, so I need to be sure that I'm on the right track and all set up for a relatively stress-free time.

The Tudors starts screening on cable here in a few weeks. I shall be watching, and trying not to nitpick. I'm not sure that I'm going to buy Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry VIII, but only because I can't imagine him ageing into an obese redhead with gout. Much more pleased at seeing Sam Neill playing Cardinal Wolsey, he acts well in everything he's in. And Peter O'Toole will be playing the Pope in series two! What's not to love?

Someone on the flist needs to tell me that the new series of Crotchwoot sorry er, Torchwood is worth watching. I've heard good things about James Marster's guest appearance, and I really hope that the script quality's improved since series one. I want to enjoy this show and not cringe at the clunking lines and character development. Also if Captain Jack never again appears in DW, I want to be able to enjoy him in this show.

Sweeney Todd is finally out here this week. Yay! Toying with whether or not I should see Cloverfield too....I love J.J. Abrams, but the trailer makes it out to look like a Godzilla-type film. I'd rather stick with just watching Lost, where the monster is inflicts psychological harm and kills people violently.
