Saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for the first time yesterday. It's a lot better than the old one. I can't remember the book very well, but I'd say it's a lot closer than the far too sugary Gene Wilder version. Ronald Dalh's books were always a little dark and quirky and the old singing and dancing one was waaaaay too bright and cheerful.
Somehow managed to forget I was meant to be doing darklittlefox's game. No idea when it was arranged, but I went into auto pilot and pootled up the hill ladened down with games to play at GameSoc instead. They spent some of their budget on Saturday and now have Puerto Rico! w00t! I tried showing it to people but we ran out of time. But I think people were enjoying it so maybe next week I'll start a bit earlier and we'll finish a game.
