Quality. Just wait for the Pirates of the Caribbean 2 diatribe.

Caribbean rant was good. And I like Caribbean. Far all it's faults.

Todays Zidane rant was right on the money. We did a 'Premiere' of it and the people involved were just falling over themselves in their praise of this film. Trying to convince anyone who'd listen that this was an important piece of work. 2 minutes of it is enough to get the point. 90 of them is a cure for insomnia. Watching it for its full running time would be like waiting for a turd to make it's way to meet the cool still surface waters of a toilet pan.

No there's an idea for all you conceptual artists out there. Actually wait. It's already been done. There's an 'atriste' called Martin Creed who's done just that. It's a film shot on a white stage where a succession of people walk on, squat and pinch a loaf on camera. It's called (and is) S**T FILM. Sorry for the swearing but it's his title.

This guy is a Turner prize winner and it's a sequel to his other film called Sick Film. Same format. You can fill in the rest. Have a look at his website. He's responsible for 'Light turning on and off in a room' and my personal favourite was 'stack of plywood in a room'. It took me a while to figure out where I'd sen that one before but then it hit me. This guy must have worked at B&Q in a previous incarnation. Genius.

You see now I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not.

I should really qualify my rant against Zidane. I don't, how shall I put this, 'follow football', so please don't be put of watching it based on my ramblings. Did you buy Zidane or is it a sent copy with a view to review?

Does everything I post come across as sarcasm or something? It's like that Simpsons episode at Lollapalooza. Anyway, no, I wasn't. I'm not a football fan, and I received the check disc in the post today. No doubt it'll join the vast piles of unreviewed material...

If you have to review the disc you could save time by fast forwarding through it as there is a lot of slo-mo in it. In realtime, the film is probably about 20 minutes.

Kermade's last words on New World, 'fanciful, undisciplined wiffle'. I love this guy. I will be looking to incorporate the word 'wiffle' into everyday speach from now on.
