Briefly: Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of my favourite movies of last year, but it was noticeably heavy on testosterone. It was like Wanted, only without Angelina Jolie. So it's probably good that some female heavy hitters are joining the cast of the sequel. First Julianne Moore as the villain, and now Halle Berry is in talks. Berry will apparently play the head of the CIA, and it's a two-picture deal.

Village Roadshow CEO Graham Burke's Latest Piracy Letter To The Government Is A Bizarre Trainwreck And I Can't Look Away
On March 15, Village Roadshow's CEO, Graham Burke, penned a letter to the Department of Communications and the Arts, appealing for a review of the Copyright Online Infringement Amendment. What that letter contains is an eye-opening range of claims - of Australia ending up "as bleak as a remote Bejing suburb", linking piracy with "drug selling" and "luring kids" into "criminal neighbourhoods that proliferate with prostitution" and insisting "wondrous Australian films are often more important than people we meet in shaping our world". I couldn't make this up if I tried. Read it in its glorious entirety here.

It's chock full of Deadpool's trademark violence and nonsense, a couple of excellent X-Men gags, and some truly delightful profanity. Check it out.
