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,

The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
