Unbelievable or is it ????
The word unbelievable is being used to decribe the new 3D film about the TT.

Nit picking as usual, I find that the dictionary definition of this word is " too improbable for belief", "extremely unlikely", "no trust or confidence", "too dubious or improbable to be believed", or "so remarkable as to strain credulity" which shows that unbelievable may not the word to describe this great film......

I looked into 12 dictionaries and found only one (Collins) who defined the word as " extremely impressive, marvellous, terrible, shocking"

The Thesaurus gives these words:
a bit thick, a bit thin, absurd, antic, beyond belief, doubtable,
doubtful, dubious, dubitable, fanciful, fantastic, flimsy,
hard of belief, hard to believe, implausible, impossible,
improbable, incomprehensible, inconceivable, incredible,
mind-boggling, not deserving belief, open to doubt,
open to suspicion, passing belief, preposterous, problematic,
questionable, ridiculous, staggering belief, suspect, suspicious,
tall, thick, thin, unaccountable, unconvincing, unearthly,
unexpected, ungodly, unimaginable, unsubstantial, unthinkable,
unworthy of belief, weak

So which one fits 3DTT then ?????

(PS my wife is a crossword fanatic so that is why we have so many dictionaries !)

RE: Unbelievable or is it ????
I'm dying to see it. No news yet on its Aussie release yet.
I take it it will it be showing on the Isle 24/7 during the races?
I cant think of a better place to watch it.
It would be "unbelievable" if its not.
