The month started with a post Halloween film catch-up. My daughters made me watch Insidious 2. That wasn't fun.
The first Hobbit film was watched, once we realised that a little while back we had actually watched the second one. Naturally the second one had to then being re-viewed in preparation for a couple of the gang going to watch the third when it is released sometime soon.
If there's something I like less than horror films, it is probably Hobbits! I do like Martin Freeman though.
The obligatory Christmas movie channel has been resurrected at this time of year now with a weekend back-to-back schmaltz-fest as the old favourites get dusted off again and again and again.......Miracle on 34th Street, Mrs Claus, etc. I'm too numb to properly remember and list.
Got hooked on something my daughter's wanted to watch - Orange is the New Black. By turns dirty, rude and hilarious, but sad in many respects too when you get the back stories of some of the inmates. Not sure whether we are watching first season, second season or indeed actually how many seasons of it they have made, but I am enjoying it.
Another enjoyable 4 or 5 hours was spent in the company of British comedian Mickey Flanagan and his Detour de France with his mate Noel and their bikes. Comedy gold! I do like Flanagan as he has no airs or graces and is an absolute hoot!
Lastly I watched the best film I have seen in ages - Sunshine on Leith - a musical adaptation from the stage show based on music from The Proclaimers starring Jane Horrocks and Peter Mullan.
I would quite happily have watched it again the following night it was that fantastic.
