Fractals, Mandelbrot Fractals

The day after Thanksgiving I went and saw the new James Bond Film Casino Royal. Do not fear I will not ruin the movie for you or anything. For those of you who have never seen a Bond film they traditionally start with some kind of action intense sequence followed by the classic gun barrel view of Bond, he turns and shoot and the camera goes red and falls to the floor. After this is a cartoon type thing with film credits and that particular movies theme song. In this movie the cartoon involved lots of spades, and hearts (card suits) doing things. The main theme however was Mandelbrot fractals using the spades and hearts images. I was definitely the only person in the theater who noticed it.

  1. I disagree. Not only was it not the main theme, but it wasn't even a Mandelbrot fractal. It was probably a fractal, but not Mandelbrot.
