House of Flying Daggers

Saw this last night. Tremendously pretty film; colours superb, and aurally stunning (to the extent that if they don't get an Oscar for that, there'll be no justice in the world). It did, however, suffer somewhat from the Return Of The King Ending Syndrome; the last ten minutes or so mostly got me thinking "just finish it already!"

A very empty cinema; only four of us there...

(no subject)

Anyone read Banewreaker, Jacqueline Carey's latest, yet? I really liked the Kushiel books but haven't run across this one yet -- I'd like some opinions before I go ordering it off Amazon, since it's only in hardcover at present.
