Dinner and a movie

Brisbane Daily Life

Today I ran into Emil, Helle and Susanne on campus after finishing some groupwork on my network planning assignment. They were going to have dinner at an italian resturant, and since I hadn't had dinner yet I just joined them instead of going home. We had a nice pasta-meal with salmon and capers, and it would have been even better if I had remembered the Parmesan cheese before I finished my plate...
Afterwards we went to the Myer-centre cinemas to see "The Italian Job", which was ok but a bit plain. I kept getting the feeling that I had seen it before as the story was simliar to a lot of other movies about high-class thieves. Not a movie I'll remember for long, but as always it performs excellent as easy entertainment.


You probably have seen it before - I know I have, it's an older movie... I think it has Dudley Moore in it, maybe?

The Film is from -69, with Michael Caine. A lot of new movies are inspirated by this, not too weird you found it used...

No I definatly haven't seen the old version, but its quite similar to most other big-robbery movies like Oceans Eleven and Entrapment. As well as heaps of other films I can't remember the names of right now.
