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,

Monthly Memoir – July
July 31, 2016
The whole of July was pretty much about our holiday in America. The few days before we left were spent frantically researching where we were going, and the few days after were spent unpacking, washing, and trying to get over jet-lag. We had three weeks away and began in New York, getting the AmTrack train down to Washington DC, picking up a hire car and driving to New Orleans via Nashville and Memphis, and then following the coast East to Orlando to spend the last couple of days in Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios. Wow! I’m exhausted just remembering it! We covered ten states of America (New York, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida.) Phew! ….
3 days in Oxford – Day 1. The story of the photographs
September 16, 2016
I was so excited about this little mini-break to Oxford. I love my family to bits, but sometimes it’s nice to be alone and have a little headspace all to yourself! I also find it difficult to relax at home because there’s always so much to do there. I don’t think it helps that I work from home either, so no matter if it’s the evening or weekend, I still always feel I should either be working or doing something towards fixing the house. I was also a little bit nervous because I’m not great at driving and get flustered easily, but the journey was good; I didn’t get lost once and made it to the park and ride with no problems following the sat nav!….
Is it time to start making an effort?
November 23, 2016
Fashion and Beauty are terms that generally go hand in hand, particularly when describing the genre for some bloggers. However, whilst I am always interested in what’s on the catwalk, I can’t honestly say I’m all that bothered about ‘beauty’. I like looking at the craftsmanship of couture clothing, but I’m not rushing out to buy the latest eyeshadow primer. I suppose my interest has increased in the last six months or so when I’ve started blogging and making You Tube videos and my image is out there a bit more; and it got me thinking about how I’ve thought about beauty products over the years and how it’s changed…..
