I had a good day

Slow day at work. You know, one of those days that numbs your brain till you find yourself drooling in front of a monitor, just waiting to go home? Yeah, that.

Been looking forward to today all week though, ‘cos I got to go out and finally watch “Cloverfield“. It. Was. Awesome! I loved every minute of it and thought the way it was filmed was utterly perfect. Even Nana said she was constantly on the edge of her seat. I was completely engrossed by it. I’m extremely glad we both got to watch it on the big screen before it stopped showing, as it is really a big screen kind of movie. Not sure how well it’d work on a TV.

We had some time to kill before the movie, so after a nice dinner we popped in to pick up some Mochi. I spied the delicious desert you see in the photo above and grabbed a pack for myself. I forgot what it was called, but it’s delicious and spongey :D Glad the pack has 3 of them!

Also got lucky enough to find a great sale on at HMV where I finally picked up my own copy of “Brick” and “Serenity“, each for £3. Bargain! In fact, it was such a bargain, I managed to convince Nana to pick up a copy of “Brick” too XD She hasn’t seen it before, so it’ll be an interesting watch for her to say the least.

Right, can’t go to bed just yet, I need to finish a synopsis I started. See you on the flip side!

How about a shave?

Last night, I got to finally watch Sweeney Todd at the Cinema, accompanied by Rik, Wing and Marbles. The funny thing about Sweeney Todd, is that I’ve wanted to see it at the theatre for going on 6 years now. It was kind of a treat, being the huge Depp fan that I am, to get to see it with him playing the lead.

It was a great watch, the singing was interesting, but it was the story and the acting that grabbed us all the most. It was a very dark story with a bountiful helping of stylised gushing blood that warranted the movie an 18 age rating here in the UK. We felt it would’ve been fine as a 15 age rating.

Wing expressed an interest in the opening credits animation, which was very cool indeed. Lucky for you, there’s a YouTube clip of the whole intro sequence for your viewing pleasure :D

Something Inspirational

Last night I had got round to watching a movie I’d wanted to see a couple of years ago, but totally forgot about it. I didn’t really know what to expect from this movie as I’d forgotten most of the premise. I just knew that it was something I’d wanted to see.

It was called “The World’s Fastest Indian”, starring Anthony Hopkins. His performance was, as always, simply amazing. It’s a true story about the later years of a man named Burt Munro.

Burt Munro is a 67-year-old New Zealander who is obsessed with speed. He is a loner who lives in a bike shed on a vacant lot in a family neighborhood. He spends most of his time modifying his beloved 1920s Indian motorcycle, and occasionally racing it against modern opponents. The movie’s plot revolves primarily around Burt attempting to follow his dream of setting a new land speed record with his Indian at the Bonneville Salt Flats near Wendover, Utah.

The man spent 25 years trying to achieve his dream. I was in awe at his determination and moved by the story. I don’t want to say any more, because it would simply spoil it. I really recommend you watch this film at least once in your life.

On a downer note, right after I finished watching this, I heard Heath Ledger had died the same day.

If you just be safe about the choices you make, you don’t grow.

#Heath Ledger (April 4, 1979 – January 22, 2008)

Rest in Peace.
