Tora! Tora! Tora!

Stef is currently in Perth for a week-long conference. Actually, the conference is just three days but she'll be spending the rest of the week there touring. That means there's just Dan and myself left in Sydney over the last weekend. So we did on a movie marathon of sorts.

For one, I got him really interested in
Memento. I had bought its DVD some time back and had lent it to him. With his wifey not around starting last Friday, he finally got down to watching it.


We ended up discussing the movie, even replaying some scenes to clarify our doubts about the storyline.

We finally got down to "business" after dinner on Saturday evening, starting on those DVDs we've rented from Blockbuster. By Sunday night, we had watched five movies. The pick of the lot was undoubtedly Tora! Tora! Tora! This despite it being more than 35 years old now.

Whilst watching it, I can't help but recall what a crap movie Pearl Harbour was. Now with Tora to compare with, it felt even crappier! Especially considering Tora's age and Pearl's production budget.

Incidentally, today is the 64th anniversary of the Pearl Harbour raid.

114 days to go.
