Winter is.. oh, you know the rest (and no, it doesn’t involve Bernie Winters or Scnorbitz).
Having not watched a Blu-Ray title for a while, it’ll rather novel to watch something on physical media again. But if that’s the way HBO demands I watch it, so I must.
Having seen this tweet from Michael Winner, former director of Death Wish movies and whose catchphrase is now “Calm down, dear. It’s only a commercial” – I’m now much more determined to watch Jane Goldman’s adaptation of Woman in Black. If he hates it, it must be good!
Speaking of the Ross household, I must get around to reading part two of America’s Got Powers (still hate the title, but love the concept) as well as Assimilation Squared (okay, no Ross involved there but it’s a comic series that I’m following which is also very promising).
And one more thing: very angry that ITV have cancelled Penn & Teller: Fool Us. Please about the BBC’s cancellation of The Magicians, though – but I will say it wasn’t Lenny Henry’s fault it was bad (he was great host!) – the whole format and staging was atrocious whereas Fool Us got everything spot on. And ITV, having won the war of magic, have now cancelled it. The bastards.
If there’s enough time, I’ll hopefully get to watch The Artist too. It’s a film that’s divided critics, but for the most part it’s got everything I like – B&W, silent, comedy and a dog. Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton would approve, I think.
