Film Fest


The tv is broken , which can only be a good thing.
So last night was a bit of a marathon of film waiting via laptop.
I sobbed at Fernanda Montenegro's performance in Central Station...thought that My Best Friend's Wedding looked ever so slightly dated and lost myself in How to train a dragon 

Today I am off to Chester with my sister in law then it's a barbecue with the affable despots .
No film watching today

    1. Also, H.I. had left the sound up full blast and the opening chord almost made me fall off the stool.

  6. If Winnie comes along to the barbecue you can have a hot dog. Just cut a bloomer in half and place within.

  11. You're watching How to train a dragon? Looking for ideas on how to round up that crafty Irene?

  12. I never got on with My Best Friend's Wedding. It's not often in a romcom that you are asked NOT to support the wishes and hopes of the star. It confused me.

  15. We're busy laying turf ... in the pouring rain. The grass might like it, I don't ☹

    Have fun in Chester and at the BBQ.

  16. When I was a kid, my mother cut the plug off the television set because my brother and I came home from school one quarter with mediocre grades. We lived without it for about six months, and it's amazing how productive you can be when you're NOT watching TV!

  17. I always seem to get this movie mixed up with The Next Best Thing for some reason. Me thinks Rupert Everett throws me off. I enjoyed both movies though.

  18. "How to Train Your Dragon" is a delightful movie. There's a sequel and a final film that's coming out soon as well.

    1. How To Train Your Dragon - there's a film to laugh and cry at (and the sequel). I can't wait for the next one!

  19. I nearly went to a barbeque this week but it became an indoor affair as rain forecast. Then the sun came out and we moved outside after lunch x

  21. I like Julia and Rupert and Cameron (and, for that matter, Susan, whom I have fond memories of from Rich Man, Poor Man II) but that movie just doesn't do it for me. I don't mean to sound dated myself, but I never bought the film's central premise. Some great individual scenes, though, especially everybody singing "Say a Little Prayer" in the restaurant.

    1. I adored the singing in the restaurant with the lobster staff waving their claws....
