    • Very artistic trailer …. dark.
      Ok….I will have to add this to my list. I think I remember seeing a preview for this.
      I like Dev Patel….he is such a great actor.

      You are right about all of the King Arthur movies. I think my favorite is “Excalibur”

  • For Monica.

    “The Vast of Night” is a film directed, co-produced, and written by Andrew Patterson. The film premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival in January 2019 and was later released in the U.S in May […]

    • NEVER heard of this but I will watch it.
      We have every pay channel on our televisions here so I am sure I can find it somewhere.

      I love movies but never was one for “writing” reviews. I have always felt….if the Movie Trailer doesn’t hook you….my words DEFINITELY will not hook you. So I alway opted for just posting a trailer.
      BUT with your gift for writing Jules you do such an excellent job at reviewing.

    • Hi Monica.

      Thanks for the compliment. . .and the plug!

      During the last year and a half there have been a lot of films that have come in under the radar – so to speak, because of the pandemic. Many have gone straight to stream while others – such as the new Bond film, have been held back until cinemas open again.

      There are gems a-plenty just waiting to be discovered. I myself had never heard of “The Vast of Night” until I saw the thumbnail on Prime Video. I clicked on it and began watching what is now my favourite film of the year. Another gem I came across was “I Think We’re Alone Now” – an independant film that stands above all others for its quality of story.

      Of course. . .there is the caveat that what I think is good, others might disagree with, but I always trust in the fact that people recognise quality when they see it. And the above mentioned films ooze quality with ease.

  • I don’t normally devote my blogs to film reviews as such, but I just watched what I can simply describe as one of the most disturbingly hypnotic movies I have seen in a while. Strictly speaking this is not a […]

    • I have to say Jules…..you REALLY need to do more movie reviews. You got me hooked. I am going to sign off now because I found the movie somewhere on my TV and I am going to start watching it.

      No pizza in site 😉

    • Ok….watched this CREEPY movie and have to say it was not something up my alley. But I KNOW my sisters and brothers would LOVE this so I sent them the recommendation.

      As for that disturbing scene you mentioned…… the ‘MELDING” of the 2?
      HORRIBLE ….GROSS…… SCARY!!!!

      • “The melding” you got it right on.

        It wasn’t so much the visuals but the noises they were both making – it made me cringe with pity and disgust.

  • Congratulations to Emma Raducanu in winning the US Open Tennis Championships. Emma became the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since Virginia Wade back in 1977.

    Emma we love you!

    • Last year it was Neil Peart (RUSH) – this year Charlie Watts.

      He was one Stone I imagined would roll on forever.

      • I was just thinking about all these old bands that seem to have the gift of longevity. Truly….”Roll on forever” is what I was thinking too.

  • Yes many people are vaccinated but with the new variants being spread I still don’t feel safe doing things I love. Like a LIVE concert. Sitting in a restaurant with friends. Though I have been to their houses […]

    • These types of post are still relevant – Covid has gone nowhere and is still here.
      The one thing I still miss the most is being able to go anywhere without fear of infection – even if it’s a jaunt to my local town centre of Epsom. Last year during the height of the pandemic I sold my car because it had been sitting there going nowhere, so rather than keep paying for something I was not able to use I let it go. I actually ventured out to the hospital for a blood test last week – first time out since last year, but in all honesty things may look normal out there but deep down I still feel there is danger for the vulnerable. There is talk over here of offering certain people a 3rd jab! People are still getting infected, and people are still dying. . .an end is not yet in sight.

      • Here too…third jab. But they did approve the 3rd one for the vulnerable. Apparently people have already been getting it by being sneaky or creative…depending on how you look at it. I have the 2 Pfizer doses….but I was pondering looking for a location that is giving the Johnson and Johnson which is 1 jab. So that could be my 3rd. I shall ponder it longer….since I have the time to ponder.
        YOU SOLD YOUR CAR? That is what keeps me sane. Being able to go for drives…..going to the beach after everyone leaves….its nice being to just hop in and drive. Well….when my head isn’t spinning that is

  • Absolutely enjoy this show. I know I caught the band wagon for this show a few years late ☺️. I think I enjoy this show so much because its about the behind the scenes world of these talented artist. Getting an […]

    • This is one of those shows that I’ve heard about but never seen – presumably because it isn’t available here on the other side of the pond. I’ll check to see if it’s on Amazon Prime.

      And while we’re on the subject. . .watched a film last night (on Amazon) called “I think we’re alone now.” It stars Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning. The plot is simple and rather relevant in this time period: Del (Dinklage) spends his day walking deserted streets checking houses for dead bodies after a global pandemic wiped out 99.9 % of the Human race. One night he is woken by a firework display some distance from the library where he lives. The next morning he ventures out and finds a car with a young girl who has passed out (Fanning). Grace has a terrible tale to tell but never finds the words to do so. As their relationship develops an unexpected situation props up and comes with answers that Grace has never let out.

      This is a very good Indi-film and well worth a look.

      My film of the week!

      ps: when I logged on this morning it was wonderful to have no spam to deal with 🙂

      • I think Mozart in the Jungle would be more appealing to the Artsy type. Art in all its forms is relatable. ” I think were alone now”….I will add that to my list.
        I didnt miss zapping those spammers. But there wasn’t too much so I can’t really complain

  • I said you would regret it, you didn’t believe me. . .
    I said you can’t do that to me, you didn’t believe me. . .
    I warned you about the direct consequences of inexcusable actions, you ignored me. . .
    I told […]
