I've just returned home from another Bay Area trip for the LEAD program. I also met up with Dirk Schultze and some other Adobe developers for some work on SVG/CSS filters.
Because of the Asiana crash at SFO, my flight to SF was delayed by ten hours and became a daylight flight, so I watched five movies on the way there. I watched two on the way back. The movie haul this month was pretty good actually.
- Life Of Pi: Brilliantly executed but not all that interesting.
- Seven Psychopaths: Slightly above average. A lot more interesting than the title would suggest.
- Stoker: Above average thriller.
- Argo: Pretty good, apart from the gratuitous slander against New Zealand.
- Trance: Somewhat absurd but interesting thriller.
- Side Effects: Pretty good mystery/thriller.
- Dangerous Liasons (2012 Chinese version): Pretty good, but I'm a sucker for Chinese period drama, not to mention Zhang Ziyi and Cecilia Cheung.
