Kiki's Delivery Service is a firm favourite forever, The Admirable Crichton was an enjoyable gentle story set on a desert island, Petite Coupures had the brilliant Daniel Auteuil in which is always a joy, The Giant Mechanical Man was just so great, The Impossible was interesting but I just didn't think much of the acting and Compliance was so crazy it made me want to shout at the characters!
As a pre-birthday celebration for me this year we jumped on the train and spent two great days by the sea. We stayed at Snooze B&B in Kemptown which had the most amazing decor throughout and was the perfect base. I had been itching to go there for over a year! The room we chose was like something out of our dreams, so cosy and it even had a stick of rock and a packet of love hearts waiting for us on the bed. We hope to return very soon!
Adam's Apple was wonderfully insane, Silver Linings Playbook was so much more than I had expected and very entertaining, Safety Not Guaranteed was rather great, Tropic Thunder did make me laugh quite frequently, The Future was strange but very watchable and Ruby Sparks had me intrigued at first but overall it could have been better.
A few weekends ago we packed our bags and set off for wonderful Wiltshire. We had the most perfect log cabin that was going to be all ours for 2 days. There was so much pine inside it was great and it came equipped with everything you might need and a beautiful kitchen so we enjoyed some cosy nights in, some croissants out the can, saw a German film called Barbara, got excited about the snow on the first morning, sampled an impressive Chinese takeaway, watched the ducks waddle past our window, had a lovely pub lunch in Marlborough and then returned home with a very muddy looking car - that's the countryside for you!
It has been a very good week or so for film watching. The Imposter was completely intriguing throughout, The Hunt was just another bit of amazing danish film making that made me completely frustrated at the plot line but it was great, Barbara was an interesting story that I very much enjoyed, Cyrus was not what I was expecting but extremely good, Vibrator is a film I have been wanting to watch for years and I finally found it, the strangest of meetings followed by the most bizarre road trip. Sister was a good one also, although rather sad in parts.
