Spent the last couple of days grappling with parsing & updating XML in Perl for my project. I finally got it working but it isn’t particularly memory efficient as it takes in the whole database (5000+ nodes) in one big chunk.
After the ever-rediculus Oscars last night I thought I’d offer my own impartial opinion on the best films of 2004 (as I did last year!). You’ll notice that none of these were even nominated! This list is not definitive as of course I didn’t see all the films last year this represents my own tastes:
Top 5 Films 2004
- Kill Bill (Volume 2)
- A Tale of Two Sisters
- House of Flying Daggers
- Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence
- Shaun of the Dead
Update – Just noticed that Shi mian mai fu (House of Flying Daggers) was nominated for ‘Best Achievement in Cinematography’, opps.
Worst Film 2004
- Alien Vs. Predator – Please make it stop!
I haven’t watched nearly as many films as I would have liked this year so far due to being busy with other things but I’ve got a lot lined up so watch this space!
Got an opinion? What did you like/hate the most last year?!
