mini me + poo


We finally got around to watching this yesterday - good stuff. I remember one reviewer saying the first half was 'boring' but I'm afraid I liked it too.

It's reminded me of why, despite some attempts, games on history like this and the First Crusade don't really work -- to reproduce the actual events in a proper sim, you'd have to do the equivalent of roll 6s constantly. If it hadn't happened, you wouldn't believe it.
