Love Actually is The Sandman playing Buttonmen  
Went and saw Love Actually the other day.
I would highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a light-hearted comedic romp.
As was the case with Richard Curtis' previous smash hit (as writer) Four Weddings and a Funeral the show is stolen by Rowan Atkinson in a brief cameo.
But, really, the whole movie is funny, touching and, despite the subject matter, not too sickly-sweet.
A great directorial debut from one of the world's best comedy writers (Curtis).

I have a big thankyou for sinisterglint for finally introducing me to the character I've been longing to read about, The Sandman.
Neil Gaiman is a genius, 'nuff said.

Oh, and go join up and play Buttonmen if you haven't already - challenge yakboy to a game!

I saw 'Love Actually' a few weeks ago and absolutly LOVED it! How good is it?

What is 'buttonmen'? *curious*

It is a game, played usually with dice, but the dice are simulated in the above online version.

Read Neverwhere. A good book, and I'm now certain what part of Good Omens he was responsible for. He is a very good author; I found the book difficult not to read. But I have to say I was expecting something a bit more innovative.

I haven't read the novel Neverwhere, but I loved the tv series.

Yes. I read that it was based on a TV series. I was actually looking for a different novel of Neil Gaiman's, but it was out as usual.

I would imagine that the TV series would be better than the book. When I think about it, a lot of the story seemed better suited for screen.
