Yes, my husband has made me sit and watch all the other Star Wars films every night this week, finishing, of course, with Revenge of the Sith on Thursday. He has always been a Star Wars nut, but isn’t one of those who feel George Lucas has betrayed them with his new three. Anyway, on to the film; you want to know if it’s any good right? Well, yes it is; I enjoyed it a lot and I didn’t fall asleep even for a minute! So, non-Star wars fans, you won’t need to complain too much if you’re dragged off to the cinema by your other half to watch it. But your bum will ache by the end of it. God those seats are uncomfortable!
Anyway, the effects were what I expected them to be – absolutely fantastic. There wasn’t a moment that didn’t look unreal. The new creatures – mostly robots must’ve taken years to invent and design. The whole plans of the cinematography seemed to be on a higher level this year and it noticed. The camera angles were far more imaginative without being obvious – we were taken round these worlds and planets; not just shown them.
Plot-wise; well it filled in the gaps as was expected to do, but it was no way a stand-alone film. And my favourite of them all has been Episode 2. Anyway, I really couldn’t see how they were going to get Annekin to turn to the dark side. Yes, we had hints before; then there were several hints and ‘I’m confused’ in the first half of the film, and then, oh, all of a sudden he’s swishing his light-sabre through younglings with barely a care in the world!
Really, the only plot going on was the love-story between Annekin and Padme, and that wasn’t exactly all that interesting, especially when they changed Padme’s character so much. Episode 1 she’s a wise queen; 2 she’s a courageous bold intelligent sennet; 3 she’s what? If she has got a job it’s not clear. For all the worry about being pregnant, we’re not told any consequences and she seems to have turned into a naïve house-wife who doesn’t seem to notice what’s happening to Annekin when it’s glaringly obvious to everyone else!
So those are my criticisms, but don’t let it put you off, it’s still a great film and will sit well in the collection of Star Wars. And Ewan McGregor still looks horny even with his grown-up sweep-over hairstyle!

Entertainment, Films,

Full Review of Glastonbury Festival 2016
June 29, 2016
This year will be known for two things: the referendum and the mud. I hardly saw an act that didn’t mention both of those things. I’m sure you will have heard about both from plenty of other people, so I’m not going to dwell on either. This is going to be one long post about the entire five days, so fetch yourself a mug of hot chocolate and if you don’t quite make it all the way through, just leave the tab open and come back again later! ….
Afternoon tea in Bath
Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset
September 21, 2018
We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….
Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
