Two treats for you this week. First, this fan-made video which takes our foreign policy movie thread one step further, to a clash of sci-fi movie franchises. Actually, it turns out to be not much of a contest...

Second, although I'm yet to catch the new Star Trek, I did recently see Frost/Nixon, which is why I was so impressed by this very funny list of 41 observations about America, and specifically no.37:

37) Thanks to the movie, when you mention David Frost to an American, they picture Tony Blair doing an impression of Austin Powers.

Enjoy your weekend, but check in with us tomorrow for Rory Medcalf's on-the-ground observations of Prime Minister Rudd's speech to the Shangri La Dialogue in Singapore.
