Newsletter and jokes 16 February 2018

Hi all 
My goodness what a week! 
In a shocking move, the Film and Publications Board rerated South Africa's 
multi-award-winning and official Oscars entrant film Inxeba - The Wound,  
from 16 LS to X18 LSNVP, which technically means that it is hard-core porn 
and may only be distributed on disk by licensed "adult" shops. 
The producers are exploring legal options to deal with this situation... 
In other news, some rich and powerful people got arrested, others are on the  
lam, and we got a new president... 
And Cape Town had some rain...  
Clearly Zuma's reign was interfering with Cape Town's rain. 
The big release this week is Black Panther, billed as the first all-black 
superhero film. It is joined on the commercial side by a new Afrikaans mystery,  
and on the art side by Oscar hopefuls I, Tonya and All the Money in the World. 
India provides two new release, one a comedy and one a thriller. 
Please note that our data feed on Thursday still has Inxeba screening at some  
venues, this may not be correct. 
No previews this week, and NuMetro have closed their Walmer Park venue.

Two explanations of Darwinian evolution: 
"Evolution is an integration of matter and concomitant dissipation of 
motion; during which the matter passes from an indefinite, 
incoherent homogeneity to a definite, coherent heterogeneity; and during 
which the retained motion undergoes a parallel transformation." (Spencer 
Which was then simplified to: 
"Evolution is a change from nohowish, untalkaboutable all-alikeness, to a 
somehowish and in-general-talkaboutable, 
not-all-alikeness, by continuous somethingelseifications and 
stick-togetherations." (Kirkman)
