Jimmy's Hall. Great bit of prol story telling from Ken Loach - set in 20's Ireland.

A Pigeon sat on a branch reflecting on existence. Some great absurdist fayre from Roy Andersson. What is real and what isn't eh? eh? eh?

Divergent. Surprisingly enjoyable first film in the franchise. It would seem to be the better of them too. Sci Fi Dystopian films, gotta love 'em.


The Tale of Princess Kaguya. Enchanting fairytale by the studio ghibli peeps

A Christmas Carol (Jim Carrey, 2009) & A Muppet's Christmas Carol (1992). Getting to appreciate Dickens more as I get older. Beautiful story, and one which I hadn't sat through from beginning to end before.

For the umpteenth time I watched 'The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou' last night. I dunno why... I just love it.

Yes, a couple of times at least! Very good, but still pales against Zissou and The Darjeeling Limted, IMO.

Calvary - Another Brendan Gleeson tour de force as a priest in coastal Mayo (or Sligo?) who has been told he will be killed by an unknown (to us at least) man in the confessional box.

I'm probably the last person here about to watch the first series of The Walking Dead. Number one son insists I do or he's disowning me!:-)

The Dance of Reality. Highly sympathetic to Jodorowsky's fare, so this was by no means a bad film telling a sometimes fantastical story of his childhood in Chile. Don't think it is up there with his best, but then what do I know - I've only seen El Topo. Still beats the bejesus out of most films in terms of creativity and vision.

Edit. I suppose what really grinded my gears was his mum having to deliver all of her lines as opera! Not a fan of opera, although I will begrudgingly admit that I respect him for the idea!

Caught a couple of enjoyable films last night over on Netflix.

Shimmer Lake
A kinda double/triple cross thriller/drama. Reminded me of Fargo for some reason. Good stuff.

And a daffy Spanish comedy called Spy Time, which I enjoyed far more than I expected. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3510480/plotsummary?ref_=tt_ov_pl
