Perspectives

Back from East Africa and a visit to the Save the Children operations in Shinyanga province (just south Lake Victoria) - where poverty and Aids are a big problem. Also a night and day visit to Zanzibar, where child abuse, abduction, labour and neglect are rife. Back in London, my eye was caught by the following on the moviemistakes.com site. Faults in new Bond film Skyfall include -

Factual error: James Bond is seen driving down Whitehall in London. Behind him a number 38 bus is seen. However the 38 does not travel down or indeed particularly near Whitehall. This was probably done to show off the new Routemaster bus, which is currently only used on the 38 route.

Continuity: When Bond comes to talk to M in the M16 offices in the early part of the film we see her silhouetted from the back. She is wearing one dangling earring and one clip-on variety. When the shot cuts to a side view we see she has two clip-on earrings.

We have all this brain capacity available to each of us and yet we fritter..(what was I doing on the moviemistakes site anyway??)
