Sin City and others

I've been to a few movies over the last couple months and none of them were all that great. The big exception would be Frank Miller's Sin City. Wow, beautiful women in every other scene and more violence then you can shake a stick at. "The Hard Goodbye," staring Mickey Rourke was far and above the best story of the three. I've only read the first two graphic novels but its amazing how detailed and faithful the adaptations are. All the other Frank Miller comics/graphic novels I've read have been great. Hopefully we'll see more and more of them in the future. Shooting on Sin City 2 and 3 start in February of 2006.

Some of the stinkers I've seen include "The Ring 2" and "Sahara" (worth a rent at best). I was pretty disappointed by "The Ring 2." The first film was pretty good and very creepy so I was really looking forward to the sequel. Oh well, can't win them all.

Fedora Core 3 (Ok, so maybe not)

I went back to FC3 at work. FC4T2 is showing a bit more promise as well. I liked Ubuntu but its very young, and has almost no configuration tools. They use gnome system tools for most stuff, which at best are flaky. Oh well, it was worth a try :) I still stand by the Debian on the server though. 9000 packages are hard to ignore.
