Mostly harmless update
In case you're owning a cinema in Germany and wonder why no one is showing up ... here's one of many reasons why:

I was just ordering Sherlock on play.com and came across an ad for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. This will be out on the 30th, which is BEFORE German cinemas even bother showing it. Now ... I want to see it, Marco wants to see it, my mum wants to see it, my grandparents want to see it ... doing the maths, I get a pretty steelbook edition plus popcorn and drinks for the money we would otherwise spend on tickets and we won't have trouble finding a showing of an undubbed version either.

Now I'm off to the public bookshelves. I have packed six books I want to donate, so the plan is to not return with more than six books, excluding books I already own (if I find a pretty edition of a book I already own in a less pretty edition I exchange them and take the less pretty edition back ... so this doesn't really count as a new book). It probably won't work, because it never works and because I can't resist the lure of a free book, but I'll try ;-)

This so much! Germany drives me insane sometimes, especially when it comes to smaller, intelligent films that are super successful internationally but don't have blockbuster written all over them. Good luck finding them!

RE TTSS: I had found a link online and wanted to watch but then they annihilated megaupload and now everything feels very medieval.

Things are getting back to normal though and you might get lucky at the usual place now :)
