I know it’s Autumn….& I know these creatures want to get in out of the cold & wet….but why do they all seem to be making a bee-line for our house?!!!
This week the ‘spider’ glass has been put to use FOUR times & each evictee seemed larger than the last! This BIG fella was so big he had to bunch his legs up & stand tall just to fit inside the PINT glass!!
My boys think it hilarious when I’m trying to take a photo of the captured beast while jumping & squealing every time it so much as flexes a leg! I guess it’s a morbid fascination…this one had knees…& hairy legs!! Ugh!!
Anyway with that out of the way I realised yesterday that I have omitted to update you on my cinema visits of late!! I missed several Sundays over the summer, but we’re back on track now if it is with mixed results!!
‘Hope Springs’ was delightful! With
a cast dominated by Meryl Streep
& Tommy Lee Jones I expected
Both funny AND moving, it deals
with the issues faced by many
‘long time married’ couples who
have given in to habit & become
stuck in a rut! I won’t spoil it for
if I tell you that it all comes good
in the end!!
‘Looper’…I loved this one! Bruce Willis is fabulous as is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays a young Bruce! Not one to pop out to the loo during, or you’ll totally lose the plot!! Quite a bit of blood & guts, but all relevant & it certainly gets the old grey matter working!!
can I say?! I was so keen
to see this film, expecting
a lavish costume drama.
With Keira Knightly in the
title role & huge hype
about the jewellery &
make-up used in the film
I wanted to be amazed!
But I wasn’t! It was a very arty interpretation & all the scenes centred around a theatre…on-stage…backstage…front of house…most scenes started & ended here, drifting off into different rooms & bits of countryside in between! I suppose it was all very cleverly choreographed but it didn’t really ‘involve’ me & I do like to ‘get lost’ in a story like that!!
So that’s it from me for today! The window cleaner has just been, so that’s my cue to wash the insides! As the sun is shining I’ll rather enjoy that!!
Thanks for stopping by & come back soon!
