I watched Night Watch last night. I'm not entirely sure what to make of it yet. The overall plot was quite good, but the film was just far too confusing. I'm not sure whether this was because of the English dub or whether it's cos it's just not meant to make any sense or not. I think I'm going to watch it again in Russian with the subtitles on to see if it's any better.

Completely unrelated, I found this site where they're trying to recruite 5000 people to become part of a tribe. The tribe will be building an eco-friendly settlement on an island off Fiji that members of the tribe can go visit and help work on the settlement. Or just laze around. It sounds a bit like a cross between the Shipwrecked shows and a timeshare holiday.

One thing that doesn't look so great about it all, is that currently it's only expected to last 3 years from the moment they get their 5000th member. Cos they don't actually own the island, they're just borrowing off the local owner. I'd be mildly interested if it wasn't for this part, cos I think it'd be kinda cool to get myself an island and start a new community of like minded folk on it. The potential for it to just fizzle out after a short while just makes it not seem worth it.

watched it yesterday with subtitles and the day before with the dub. they are really quite different and the characters come across in a different light in some instances.

plus with the dub, when anton is all damaged and bleeding and coughing up everything in Geser's office, you can hear bugger all. the subtitles help alot.

Yeah, I came in from work at about that point, and had to restrain myself from shouting "enunciate you bastards!" at the telly...

I think they spent far too much effort acting out someone with a mouth full of blood or something.

It didn't get much clearer after you left. Definitely going to go with the watching it with subtitles plan I think :)

I thought much the same thing, and a touch over acted and up its own bottom in places.
