I arrived home from Japan a couple of weeks ago and speaking with the authority of someone who has been in Tokyo for 3 days, I can say for certain that Tokyo's lights are powered by Pokemon. I barely saw a single live Pokemon when I was there so I can only conclude that they are all underground. The Diglets dig the tunnels, Pikachus power the generators, Gyarados keeps the water running to the high tech toilets and Lapras is obviously on loan to Scotland's Loch Ness in exchange for the secrets of their Whisky.

The new biggest film in the world has just been released. I heard that Age of Ultron make at least 20 billion in it's first hour. That may or may not be true. I liked it but it just seemed like over kill. Every scene was just constant fighting and blowing up to the point where I didn't really care. I'm Guessing it's Michael Bay's favourite Marvel film. There were some great bits involving Thor's hammer and anything with the Vision. James Spader as Ultron was great. There just seemed like there wasn't enough story. They added Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch but in such a way that you don't really care about them. Am I looking forward to seeing more of them in the next film? Meh. Maybe it's one of those films that gets better with a second watch. Maybe it just seems a let down because the first one was so great.
