Movie Review Minority Report was good. Not perfect, but pretty well done, and the story nicely strung along to keep you guessing until the end. The products of the future were pretty cool, holographic computers and whatnot, the transit system. Interesting moral dilemmas, and motivations. There were some complaints I think about the amount of product placement, but in some ways I think it would probably be more negative than positive, because it involved what is to us pretty dramatic invasions of privacy. Who would want to be associated with that!
MIB II was a bit of a dissappointment. Most of the good lines were all in the previews -- as is often the curse with comedies. Otherwise, it was kind of all been there done that. Nothing was particularly new or that much more interesting. But it was still entertaining at least.

World Cup Now well over. It was good to see Brazil win well, but I have to say that the knockout stage was a bit of a dissappointment after the round of 8. No real spectacular games. Some decent games, but then some pretty dull games. Spain really should have won against S Korea, the US really should have defeated Germany, but alas. Was still glad to see Turkey and S Korea go as far as they did.
