The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

From the "It could be worse" files

Gwyneth Paltrow, in whom I have entirely too much interest after having seen Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, caught a fair amount of flak for naming her daughter "Apple".

Well, at least it's better than "@".

I dated a girl by that name a while back. She WAS rather tasty....

Yours is the first blog reference I've seen to Sky Captain, which I saw at a matinee yesterday.

What a fun movie!
It reminded me of The Rocketeer, only much improved thanks to the CGI.

I may go back and see it again on the big screen, before waiting for the DVD.

"Sky Captain" was, imho, one of the best films of the year...just the right combination of camp and CG.

How sweetly ironic it is that we've developed such awesome digital capabilities, and are now using them to make such awesome analog lookalikes!

Oh, and Gwyneth? Hubba, hubba...

For what it's worth, I made a passing reference to Sky Captain here a few days ago.

Eh. I wasn't too impressed by Sky Captain although I admit it's probably more of a "guy film". Or maybe I'm just burned out from watching too many movies.

I actually don't think Apple is that bad of a name. I reserve my sympathies for Frank Zappa's kids.
