    Announced yesterday that Marvel boss Kevin Feige is a big Star Wars fan and will be making a movie with Lucasfilm (writing, directing, overseeing, not quite clear). Big coup for Lucasfilm, albeit they all work for the same company.

    Arguments for Christmas

    A handy list of arguments to have this Christmas, starting with the classic: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? But also; Is Love Actually actually good or actually bad? Real tree vs fake tree. Is fruit cake delicious or disgusting? When should the decorations go up? Merry Christmas or happy...

    Shane Warne's Test XI of the past 25 Years

    Gee, Warney really holds a grudge against Steve Waugh, doesn't he? Not included in his team of the past 25 years, Border named captain despite playing, what, one or two of those years. Comes after leaving him out of the ODI team. Having put together what he thinks is Australia's greatest ODI XI...
