Cobwebs in the rain and Hugh Jackman back to back..

Ahh, have lost the lead thingy that goes in the sprocket thingy to upload photos from spider safari, see previous blog.. never mind, have just watched two movies on DVD that both had Hugh Jackman in (chosen without realising he was in both) and it occurred to me that he has a chameleon ability to completely submerge into his characters and become unrecognisable.

I can recommend both movies if you didn't get to see them at the cinema. 'The Fountain' (Tree of Life/hero quest/eternal searching...that sort of thing - filming slightly obscures the interwoven stories but some damn fine imagery and acting.)and 'The Prestige', two magicians trying to out trick each other, nice twists to the plot but if you work it out early on, don't tell the person you're watching it with- you will only annoy them and get blamed for ruining it afterwards! (It is pretty easy to work out.) Nice to see Roger Rees in it and watch out for a cameo by David Bowie with a hugely scary moustache.
