I'm oddly excited about the new Underworld prequel. I enjoyed the first two movies in a geeked out sort of way, but found that the conspiracy backstory of Underworld 2 to be far more interesting than the main storyline. So seeing that expanded in a prequel? Fun times! I spent most of Underworld: Evolution staring at the character Lucian with his interesting face and Crazy Eyes. A whole movie about him? Funner times!

Out of curiosity just now I looked him up on imdb.com, and it turns out the actor, Michael Sheen, was also Tony Blair in The Queen and Frost in Frost/Nixon. I'm amazed I didn't recognize him, but I saw Underworld before those two films came out. He really disappears into the costume and make-up as Lucian, too.

Going forward, Obama said, "any time the American people want to know something that I or a former president wants to withhold, we will have to consult with the attorney general and the White House counsel, whose business it is to ensure compliance with the rule of law. Information will not be withheld just because I say so. It will be ... withheld because a separate authority believes my request is well grounded in the Constitution."

I've become so jaded over the last decade that I'm having a hard time actually believing this stuff is really happening.

From this article:

Mr. Obama said that yesterday at his inauguration that he was "inspired by the sight of Americans as far as the eye could see. They were there because they believe this is a moment of great change in America, a time for reinvigorating our democracy and remaking our country. They've entrusted all of us with a great responsibility. And so today I'd like to talk with you about our responsibility to keep that trust."

ETA: I have the url for the video I want to embed in this post, but just typing < lj-embed > doesn't seem to be enough and I need some kind of code. Help?
