The Men Who Stare at Goats

It may be old news, but I was happy to see that one of my favourite books is being adapted for the screen. The Men Who Stare at Goats, Jon Ronson's hilarious non-fiction book about a journalist's encounter with the US military's psychic warfare efforts, puts the lunatic remote-viewers claiming military merit in an enlightening context. The movie boasts an impressive all-star line-up with George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges, and is scheduled for release in December. If the movie is true to the book, the skeptic movement is up for a real treat this Christmas.
