went to see the new Planet of the Apes movie tonight, mostly a lot of fun, other than the usual few bubble-poppers (they did so much with facial expressions, but when the apes jumped, sometimes the physics were so off, and this is just inexcusable). A pretty good gee-whizzer to sit near the front for. But watching movies in Germany is a little different. We were laughing and wowing and reacting to the movie, and that was clearly not deemed appropriate by the viewers around us. Fucking drones. And the funniest thing, when the movie is over, nobody budges until the credits are finished. Nobody. Lots to love about living here, lots that is just mind bogglingly stupid.
