thread We did another film double bill
We watched The Dish and Search for the wilderpeople... As a Sam Niel double bill.

I really liked the dish, I'd never heard of it but it's really funny.. and a good heartwarming nonsense.





permalink I really should get around to watching the Dish
Have heard good things. And Wilderpeople is obviously ace.
permalink i was recommended 'The Castle'
fuck noes why it's soo popular.. though i did like the line
"there's only one thing dad liked more than serenity, and that was the sound of a 2 stroke at full rev"
permalink Frankly, I am deeply suspicious of anyone who doesn't love the Castle
It's a solid gold beauty. But then it was always more about the vibe of the thing

We went to a Castle themed evening at the Strine high commisioner's place last Welly food festival, which was great.
permalink That is going straight to the pool room.

permalink Since I have been WFH
I've found it very difficult to watch (focus on) TV or a film in my down time. I tend to check my phone a lot or do something else. I've assumed that is because I'm at a computer for 8 hours a day now rather than the 90 minutes a day if I was in work and If I have down time I'd rather spend it with my new family.

Mostly my partner has been watching Upstart Crow which has it's moments, Gossip Girl which doesn't and Barry which I have enjoyed.

Does anyone else miss sport?
permalink bundesliga is back on
maybe taking your H&S break from the screen and playing frisbee golf with the fam may solve both of those issues
permalink The exercise in my break is something I am (we are) doing
It is very enjoyable being out and about, good weather makes this much easier to cope with

I think I am just a bit grumbly because I've not had more than 2 1/2 hours sleep in one go for a while.
permalink It's because you've got a small person to look after.
I used to quite happily spend all day at work on a PC then come home and watch endless stuff.
permalink a triple bill with 'Possession' would have been interesting
i watched 'I Love you, Daddy' by louis ck and besides the difficulty in finding any empathy for the characters..
the overwrought music & headache inducing insistence in the use of soft lighting and bokeh.
the whole thing seemed to be a rationale of woody allens past & possibly his own revolting behaviour. i'd give it a miss
fortunately the day was saved by 'Like Cattle Towards Glow' which was both funny and experimental
permalink Is this the sequel to 'Dirty Grandpa' ?
permalink Those are both crackers, actually.
Nice.
permalink I've watched all of the live star wars
Rogue One is brilliant. I enjoyed the new three. The Mandalorian was great.

I've now started watching Sewing Bee.

I don't watch much any more.
permalink i was pondering re-watching the prequels
people have been saying they aren't as bad as you remember...

permalink I enjoyed episode 1

permalink *manually expunges cj
from history*
permalink It's mostly the pod racing,
which I particularly enjoyed because of the N64 game.

I'm tempted to buy it on GOG but it might be rubbish.
