|THE GREAT BRITISH BAKE-OFF|
|SECRETS AND LIES|
Another episode or three of my new favourite BBC show New Tricks was watched. I do like all the actors who comprise the retired cold case cops. Shame the series has now ended.
Fargo - working through it slowly, though I managed to upset my son by deleting the episodes we watched. How was I supposed to know he was interested in it?
FILMS - started but not yet finished. SIDEWAYS and PULP FICTION.
The first is a bit slow and gently paced and has its moments. Humorous throughout, I'll watch the conclusion just to see where we end up. Pulp Fiction - seen several times before but I do like Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta. Throw in some Bruce Willis and Harvey Keitel and it's a winner.
Two more Robin Williams watched, introducing my daughter to DEAD POET'S SOCIETY and GOOD MORNING VIETNAM. I preferred the former, but both were entertaining.
BLOOD SIMPLE - Coen brothers movie. My wife was convinced we had seen it before, I wasn't sure until near the end when my memory lapse cured itself. She was right! I do like Frances McDormand though.
ORDINARY DECENT CRIMINAL - I picked this up a few month's ago thinking it was a film of a Canadian book by Michael Van Rooy with a very similar title. Well it wasn't. It was a Dublin crime drama from 2000 with a young looking Kevin Spacey and Peter Mullan. Funny throughout - glad to have watched it, albeit in error.
My daughter - the ROM-COM queen selected a couple of others that I had never heard of but quite liked.
CELESTE AND JESS FOREVER - starring Adam Samberg from Brooklyn Nine Nine. I only have to see his face and I start cracking up with laughter.
Rashida Jones is great. I'm sure I have seen her in other things, but again memory deserts me.
To confirm my memory is failing we started watching SMOKIN' ACES but I was told to turn it off as we have seen it before. Me I'm not 100% convinced, but seeing as I can't remember what I had for my tea yesterday, I will bow to superior knowledge - probably wise to!
