Mrs Cheesecake and I pootled off to into town today. We started the morning with what turned out to be a truly uninspired breakfast at a local department store. I mean using powdered egg for the scramble? For fuck sake! I was lead to believe that rationing ended years ago. Couldn’t manage a few real eggs un-named department store? (c’mon we might need to go back one day). The only highlight of the whole escapade was that we ran into a demolition expert friend of mine called Thor. Ok admittedly he is only a few weeks old but I have high hopes he will one day embrace a life in demolitions. Strangely his mother refers to him by another name. Steadfastly refuses to call him Thor.
Afterwards we headed to the local cinema and sat down to watch Red. I’ve not read the graphic novel but I liked the look of the trailers I have seen. Turns out this is a real fun movie. Bruce Willis and Karl Urban beat the shit out of one another and Helen Mirren gets to do some epic wet work with some heavy munitions. Add John Malkovich, Mary Louise Parker, Morgan Freeman, Brian Cox and Richard Dreyfus into the mix and this makes for a rather splendid comedy thriller. Mrs Cheesecake and I both rated the film. In her words ‘it was violent and brilliant’. I don't think I could have put it more eloquently myself.
Next week we are all about the sci-fi. We are going to see Dr Who Live. I am so excited it is bordering on illegal. Really looking forward to seeing the show. I have also managed to snag a couple of tickets to the Tron Legacy preview event. This could very well be the film of the year for me. Tron had a profound effect back in 82 so there is a distinct possibility that the sequel will be as mind blowing. If it isn’t IHollywood will incur my wrath (it’s ok I don’t really have a wrath but don’t tell them. I want them to be quaking in their Hollywood boots. It’ll keep them on their game).
In my head, if I were in Tron. I would be like this.
The more likely, and disappointing, reality would be like this.
Catch you on the Game Grid.
End of Line
Hmmm that blog seems to have wandered off into Tron flavoured waffle didn’t it? What do you mean you didn’t read that far? Ohh suit yourself.
