In half an hour I'm off to see 'Eternal Sunshine'- with two free tickets compliments of Empire Magazine:D

In other news, have just bought a new printer combined with scanner and copier. I may even be able to post the few pics I took of Lij at CM4 - well, it is only six months ago!! If I seem to disappear for a loooong time it'll be because I'm still grappling with it!!

That's soooo cool! I'm excited for you. I've seen it twice, and I really loved the movie. I'd love to know your thoughts about the movie...and, of course, about Elijah's part in it.

Hey Margo, you've seen it twice?? I think I will have to wait till it comes out on DVD. I don't suppose that will be too long.

Nice to see you in here *wink*

Hi Margo! Great to see you here:) Well, I saw it. I actually find it very difficult to be objective about any film that Elijah appears in, other than LOTR, because my reason for seeing the film is to see him, so in this case I was rather disappointed that there wasn't more of him. It felt rather strange, him not being 'the star'. But with the time he had I thought he was excellent. I know some people regard his character as a bit of a creep but I felt sorry for him. But was that because it was Lij? I just don't know you see, this is the problem I have. I won't say too much about the story - don't want to spoil it for anyone - but I'm very glad I'd read about it before and knew what was happening - otherwise I'd have been completely lost. I can't say its a film I'd rush out to see again, even though I think it may improve on a second or third viewing, but I will, of course, buy the dvd when it comes out. Bet you can't guess why:D

I did enjoy it but as I said in reply to Margo above - I wouldn't rush out to see it again. And I really think you need to have some idea beforehand of what its all about - I know if I hadn't I'd have been completely lost. Needless to say, Lij was brilliant in his part, there just wasn't enough of him and, although I know I'm biased, I really do think they could have done a lot more with his character.

A lot of people say that. Can't wait to see it myself - though I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll have to wait for the US DVD release. Still no release date here... *sigh*

Hope you enjoy it Pauline!!! Lucky you!!!

Hope your scanner works better than mine - its always been very moody and only works when it feels like it - other times the programme just locks .... very annoying :(

Hi Julie!! Re 'Sunshine' you might like to read my reply to Margo's comment above. Well, I got the new printer set up but not without several hitches along the way. I was determined to make sure that at least the printing part was ok before I went to bed, consequently I didn't get to bed til 2am and had to come to work today:( So I still haven't tried the scanner out, hope to do that tonight. I felt a bit guilty buying this as my pc is less than 2 years old and the package included a printer & scanner, both crap as it turned out. At least when the scanner was working it was pretty good but then about 6 months ago my pc refused to acknowledge it & I've never found out why. I intended to try & get it fixed some time but then I started having bad problems with the printer which has never been brilliant and decided to get a better one - when I saw this 'all-in-one' it seemed a good idea to kill two birds with one stone!

Hi Pauline, I find it hard to be objective as well about anything Lij is in ... my hubby is sarcastic of the fact that a lot of the films he is in I wouldn't have watched otherwise. Well I am certainly not going to miss the chance of seeing ANYTHING with him in, am I??!!!

I believe I will have a very similar reaction to yours, when I do eventually get to see Sunshine!!

Hmmm it seems scanners can be a problem for a few of us!!! I got mine when I got my new PC about 17 months ago, it didn't come in the package but it was the one that matched, if you get my drift. It never seems to have worked properly from day one and looking back I should have got PC World to sort it out but you know how it is ... time passes and then it's too late ....:(

Sometimes it works fine, other times the programme starts but won't actually scan, and it locks onto the computer and you cant remove it or anything until you have shut down ... then you try again ... and the same thing. GRRRRRR!!! So annoying. I do so hope your new one doesn't cause you these problems!!!

As to the printer - we have an older computer that now won't acknowledge its printer!!! I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but something is corrupted, somewhere - could be the installation disk, I don't know, it's all connected okay. I want to use it as I have quite a bit of ink which would be useful for printing off more pictures of Elijah general printing jobs. The frustration these things cause us!!!
