Some better than others. Vidzi looks okay to play right now, but not every vidzi link works. I see three vidzi links. The first one didn't work and the second one did. Vidto as well.

Just ignore and close any unrelated pop-ups, included that bluff about locking your computer . Sometimes there's a bit of a delay, sometimes it needs a second or third click on the 'play' buttons. No signing up needed.

I had that last week - but the voiceover didn't stop even after closing the pop under and browser.. in the end, I had to reboot the computer to get it to stop!

Back on topic..

I watched
last week online, I felt like a bit of light entertainment.

I have a deluxe new (to me) laptop with superior audio and video and a set of pro headphones and the news has driven me to Dr. Strangelove.

Well I thought it was really good. After about 20-30 minutes I thought I'd probably split it in two and finish tomorrow night but half way through I thought sod it, I'll stick with it and it and it flew by.

I did a bit of googling to see potential differences to the book and there appear to be quite a few.

So if Beckiwoo is still interested, see it. get



Books are generally the better version of course.
I didn't like the book.

Haven't seen it. It takes a lot for me to put up with the popcorn munchers, seat kickers and additional annoying habits of 'other people', and on the film is never as good as the book principle I wasn't even remotely tempted.

I was tempted to add a further reason but am trying to avoid spoilers.

You must love being on airplanes then.

The only book I hated where I didn't even bother watching the film was 'the lovely bones' - massively overrated

IMDB says there are great differences between book and movie.

I saw it a few years ago. Don't recall much other than I watched all of it.

I false started on the lovely bones (the book) a few times, thought it was OK in the end, but wasn't tempted to see the film.

Although many hated it I loved the book of 'we need to talk about Kevin', which may say much about my essential crapness as a parent (none of mine have killed anyone so far as I'm aware). I still didn't bother with the film. Mostly I don't see the point when you know what's going to happen anyway.

I have just finished watching 'Manchester by the Sea', my prediction is that Casey Affleck will win the Academy Award for best actor.

I enjoyed it, easily a 8/10 from me.

I have a bit of a block when it comes to Australian movies. It's not only an accent thing, but also that so many of them seem rural and or in the past. And sometimes it comes across as in the past when it's not.

There are, of course, exceptions. The Killing of Angel Street. Muriel's Wedding (an all time great) and a few others with unmemorable titles. I found a new one tonight.

Imagine you're out and someone approaches you. You realise it's you. Then you realise they are telling you not to go to a particular place.

Quite disconcerting. Do you go?

I just watched "Arrival" - what a strange film.. and it left you hanging somewhat at the end. I enjoyed it (well, I like sci-fi) but felt there was potential for a more satisfying ending..
