Writing A Film Review

The Prof is in Ireland today
I went to the cinema to see Three Billboards Outside Ebbing , Missouri as a treat
It was a cracking movie
I'll post the review tomorrow as I'm having a little difficulty dealing with my new laptop
However I shall leave you with a photo of me and my co-pilot reviewing my review with the computer on my knee..
She likes to see what I see

  1. That picture would make a great painting. If you could capture the atmosphere and pathos.

  4. I seem to remember one of your dogs before was a co pilot and went everywhere in the passenger seat of your car keeping an eye on your driving.

  6. what i want to know about your co-pilot dogs is do you encourage that or is it totally self appointed?

    with an editor like that, most film reviewers will be jealous

    1. The Welsh terrier breed is incredibly loyal and bitches tend into imprint on the alpha male.
      Also you have to remember that the dogs are with me most of the day everyday ..I am their world
      ( and visa versa)

    2. I am with our dog all day every day and he follows me round the house but there isn't a chance of getting him in the car without brute force!

  7. As we are home most of the time these days, one of our cats (the sweet little female) stays close to SWMBO all day and the other one (the nasty male) follows me around the house. I don't have any idea what that means.

  9. It looks like that movie will take many Oscars home. I have not seen it yet, but may this week. Have you seen The Greatest Showman? This musical is mostly a fictional story of PT Barnum, and I found it 100% entertaining. Ladybird is also very good.

  13. It is a really good film, isn't it? Dark and funny and scary and violent and thought-prov0king and adult.

  14. It was a great film but I was slightly disappointed by the ending.

  19. Your dogs are so wonderful, especially your co-pilot!

  20. Maybe you could take Mary with you to the cinema next time? I'm sure she'd be attentive and good as gold.

  21. Love the spectacles on the end of your nose look. Very becoming. My best to Mary.

  22. Have you tried plugging the new laptop in? Electricity is vital to the successful functioning of all laptops.

  23. The other day I saw the trailer in the local cinema. It put me off. I watched the docu film about Paris Opera. Even Bryn Terfel is in it. It's a cracker.

    2. Please don't shoot the innocent observer (me), John, but you did invite Chloe over here with the enticing threat to obliterate her. It's hardly an offer she can refuse, is it?

      Maybe a little bit more humour and humouring her may be the order of the day. Taming of the shrew and all that ... You've got to laugh, John. Think what good old Hippo would do - he diffused many a landline and still kept standing, and smiling.

    3. I don't need to tame anyone. I don't like how she opperates I've seen how she has tried to cause trouble with Cro and Rachel and I don't like it.
      I've told her I don't like her, so why would she persist ..

      Stop causing trouble Ursula I'm too old for it

      Delete
    4. Yes, John, it's a good point you make: The way "she operates" is strange and clearly, to some, alienating. What I find baffling, and it might be worth a moment of thought, that she often makes good and valid points in a discussion. Yet instead of giving her a chance by sticking with the subject discussed she is being dissed by some of you from the outset (though Cro does, occasionally, muster a polite response). However, and I agree, she does mock some for whom mockery clearly isn't working. Rachel being a case in point. I am as mystified as some of you why she perseveres in the face of abuse she receives, yet I wouldn't call her a troll. Mischief maker. Maybe. I do sincerely believe that if she were more accommodated in some bloggers' comment boxes rather than always thrown out without little consideration for her, things would calm down. Having said that, yes, she is given to taunting. But pouring oil onto fire isn't the answer.

      As to your request to "stop causing trouble, Ursula", John I don't cause trouble. I am the eternal peace maker. Albeit that I do not shy away from conflict in the process.

      So many bloggers complain about lack of world peace, but if we can't make peace in a small circle, be it family, friends, and indeed the blogging world, then what hope is there?

      I am not asking for a group hug lest Tom will faint. Let's just be civilized and allow for our individual foibles as irritating as they are for some yet not others.

      By the way, before I forget, and I find Rachel's assertion highly amusing: According to her only the best bloggers attract "trolls". In which case my blog is clearly crap because in all my many years of blogging no troll has had the courtesy to knock at my door.

      As ever yours,
      Ursula

    1. He is there now... as we speak, that’s why no post as yet from John today. And what better way to spend a dreary winters afternoon.

  32. I liked it a lot too. There's certainly some artistic license involved in the rather extreme storytelling, but I think it made some valid comments about the state of American society!

  33. That is such a sweet picture of you both with the heart joining you together x

  34. Aahhh. One man and his dog.
