Nay, Jude

My review of the lackluster "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" is online at IOFilm.com. Speaking of which, someone has been plagiarizing my IO stuff; once I figure out who it is we'll organize an official lynch mob.

UPDATE: My London-based editor says they "dealt with him, which means the cat’o’nine tails and a month in the stocks." Anyone care to translate?

It's naval terminology. The cat is a reference to flogging, the stocks were a rather uncomfortable method of confinement. For example, you'd be kept in a sitting position with your hands bound to your legs around the ankles.

He will join the journalism hall of shame with Passner, Blair, Rather and countless others.
