A monumental thing happened last Wednesday!

I watched the first film I've seen at the cinema since Silver was born 10 and a half months ago. :D

Captain America - The Winter Soldier at a Bring Your Baby show at my childhood local cinema.

It was just me and her as it was Emma's 2nd day in hospital.

Silver had and interesting experience, clapping on entrance, playing, watching, crawling about and eating.

I took in most if the film and loved it. One of the best Marvel films, can't wait fir Guardians of the Galaxy in August. :)

Last week we watched Mr. Morgan's last love, it was quite amusing to see Michael Caine play an american, but overall it was quite good I thought :)

Watched the first episode of the TV version of Fargo.

Quite odd!

mmm is that anything to with the film?

spoiler for the long boring story
Spoiler: show
two weeks ago I sort of illegally found out how to bypass region blocks to stream Hula in the uk
and saw the first 3 episodes of deadbeats which is sort of a mix between Medium, Dead like me and Reaper
despite all of it negative points is very entertaining in a very offensive way
anyway I had to pay to watch the rest of the season which because of the region block I couldn't
any way I found the rest of the season last night whilst randomly googling and saw the rest of episodes all 10 of them
this morning

I read about this at the weekend and it is inspired by, rather than based on the film (which I thought was brilliant)

I loved it! But then the film is one of my favourites.

Sort of. It's set in the same place and the first story had similar characters but went off in its own direction. It's produced by the Coen brothers but not written by them. The writer is good though. If the rest are of the same standard as the first one, it should be good.

Watched Paul yesterday Image

Mind you, it was at a friend's house and he has an HD telly. Now I don't know about you all, but personally I think HD is the worst thing that could ever have happened to films... I agree, it looks fine on documentaries and I'm sure National Geographic and Animal Planet are really happy, but for me it ruins the film-mood....

Fargo was a great movie. I'd be willing to give the show a try.

Haven't watched anything since something in our TV went POP! several days ago. :roll: We'll deal with that when we come back from our trip. Withdrawal hasn't been as bad as expected, although that's probably thanks to the tablets.

'm not convinced with HD either, I don't think it's necessary for most things and only use it for some programmes.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Found Close Encounters of the third Kind as a 2nd-hand dvd yesterday. Thoroughly enjoyed watching it again after such a long time but forgot to make mashed potatoes!
