Burke and Hare

The film based on a true story, set in 19th Century Edinburgh starring Simon Pegg, Isla Fisher, Andy serkis and many more…

This film had all the ingredients for a brilliant film: a great cast including many cameo roles played by actors such as Christopher Lee, Jenny Agutter and Stephen Merchant. The setting and Victorian costumes were great to look at and the plot itself, based around the medical profession’s demand for dead bodies to study, was a really good one. The sub-plot with the pretty Ginny trying to put together the first all-female cast of MacBeth, was funny and entertaining. The script was witty and the acting good.

However, there was something lacking. I think it must have been the pace just being wrong; perhaps a bit slow because I just got bored. It’s a real shame and it’s difficult to see a clear reason, but it didn’t make it as a good film – probably why I never noticed it at the cinema despite what must have been a high budget film to make. Disappointing. I wouldn’t recommend it at all.

Entertainment, Films,

Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
Facial piercings
Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
