A decent month's viewing with five cinema trips and a couple of visits to the theatre.
|The Northman (2022)
A Viking revenge thriller. I really liked it. Violent and bloody. Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe and Ethan Hawke feature. That's three plusses for starters.
Another Marvel film which isn't usually my vibe, but I enjoyed this one. Jared Leto is very good. I quite liked the set-up for it, which makes a change.
|The Lost City (2022)
A really fun adventure comedy with Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe and Brad Pitt. Played for laughs and it worked.
|Singin' in the Rain - MK Theatre
Another surprise theatre outing courtesy of some free tickets. Bloody brilliant. The rain sequences were fun. I'm surprised the cast weren't all falling over. A great and unexected night out.
|Fatal Attraction - Aylesbury Theatre
A really enjoyable theatre outing. Our son bought us tickets as a Christmas present and it was a cracking show. I can recall the film dimly and the phrase 'bunny boiler' is one I've used when discussing people over the years. I'm tempted to watch the film again.
