Don't Drink The Water has finally arrived, so expect review soon, or in other words when I've had a chance to watch it. In the meantime ...

  • UK cinema chains may boycott Burton's Alice in Wonderland. The operative word being "may". The cinemas will back down. They'll have to. The artificial four month gap is only really tenable for films which have a decent distribution and aren't yanked off the screen within a couple of weeks. http://ff.im/-fOcS2

  • Confused Facebook users think ReadWriteWeb is the new Facebook login page, and what's positively worry is the illiteracy with which they signal their dismay... http://ff.im/-fOcS0

  • Immigration whistleblowers: spot the difference. Tabloid newspapers have an agenda. http://ff.im/-fOcS1

  • Avatar, the French New Wave and the morality of deep-focus (in 3-D), in which Jim Emmerson notices how James Cameron hobbles the film visually by pointlessly recreating the limitations of celluloid even in the digital sequences. http://ff.im/-fOcRZ

  • This Guardian front page piece about BBC expenses reads like a deliberate parody of an anti-BBC Daily Mail article. At no point does it notice that the reason they're hiring the limousine is to make a good impression in front of people for whom such things are standard. Like buying a good suit for an interview. http://bit.ly/bF7aky
