This week's movies - 1800 theaters. The Descent - 90% positive reviews.
  • I haven't seen this, but the critics adore it.
  • "One of the best horror filsm of the past several years."
  • "It's too early in the year to coronate a movie with the title of 'Scariest Movie of 2006' but, when all the corpses have been counted on New Year's Eve, The Descent will at least be near the top. For horror fans and those who love things that go bump in the night, this is one not to miss.

The dramatic and unique topography of the Faroe Islands
  • If you imagine a triangle formed by connecting Scotland, Norway, and Iceland, the Faroes are just about in the dead center of it. They are way out there in the North Atlantic, but right in the middle of the Gulf Stream, so the weather never gets very cold. The harbors never freeze, and snow is rare. On the other hand, it never gets very warm either. Some 50,000 people live there, almost all employed in the fishing trade.
