Oh man, finally got CDT and MinGW working. CDT 5.0.2 is not installing properly for  me - if You get errors like "Cannot run program "gcc": The system cannot find the file specified." or "Cannot run program "make": The system cannot find the file specified." you may need to get the Eclipse/CDT simultaneous release

Max Payne

It was a decent action flick - engaging. Kind of sputtered out at the end though. Would have liked to see more bullet-time sequences. Made me want to play the game.

Punisher Warzone

Started out good but sputtered. Spent too much on melodrama. It needed way more violence and gunfights. The villains were pretty obvious and one-dimensional. Max Payne was much better.

The Wicker Man

A beautiful film. The music alone is worth seeing it. I wouldn't say it's a horror though - more suspense. There's only one really scary moment - beautifully orchestrated I have to say.

Hot Fuzz

I enjoyed it - the latter scenes were great. Need more Pegg and Wright in my life.

Hey look who's back...
Everybody that holds positions of authority in society - government and industry leaders - those who would wage war and treat human life like pawns in chess, should watch this movie. It reminded me of Grave of the Fireflies. An exquisite, chilling, horrific tale of the human cost of nuclear war.

A nuclear exchange of 3000 megatons sent the world back to the Dark Ages. The scary thing is that some studies have shown that even a regional exchange between India and Pakistan would send enough dust and smoke into the atmosphere to realize the nuclear winter scenario
