I’ve captioned all my photos from New Zealand. There are a few that will have to be re-captioned because I’m not entirely sure of place names and so forth. I can glean the place names from the footage that my brother took with his new video camera.

I went to see Once Upon a Time in Mexico today. Very violent, and to be honest I was largely unimpressed. Johnny Depp was pretty good though. Last weekend I saw The Last Samurai which was a much better film. In fact I liked this film a lot better than any of the Lord of the Rings films. It’s an epic, and it worked. Even Tom Cruise was good! There was violence, but it was violence of the kind that depicted an aspect of Japanese history and culture. Just after seeing this film, I watched a documentary on SBS about the samurai. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the movie had depicted the samurai culture very accurately indeed. This movie is well worth seeing.
