Just would like to recommend a couple of films I had the chance to see last week.
First up, The Guard. I loved this film, funniest film I've seen in a while and worth a look at either at your small local cinema or on DVD in a couple of months. How can I describe this, Brendan Gleeson plays a policeman in the West of Ireland, his patch is invaded by some drug dealers and he is partnered with an FBI agent played by Don Cheadle. If I described this as Father Ted mashed up with the Bad Lieutenant, you wouldn't be far wrong. I'll post the trailer and I hope it isn't to sweary.
Next on Saturday, I got to see Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy. One word can some up this film - brilliant! An acting tour de force by the elite of British actors. Gary Oldman and Benedict Cumerbatch are outstanding. If this film isn't nominated for Baftas or Oscars I don't know what will be! Don't miss it!
Last weekend, my sister and niece visited, it was absolutely great to see them both. The weather even obliged and was pretty good, Friday was warm and sunny, Saturday dawned a bit foggy but brightened up as the day went on.
Friday, we had a BBQ at home then went for a walk down to Exeter Quay. My niece was convinced we had visited Cardiff Bay but we managed to correct her.
On Saturday, Barney the dog visited and we took a trip to Simouth, first to the Donkey Sanctuary and then into Sidmouth. We had a great day out, Barney happily walked with us constantly checking his pack was ok, I reckon he walked 2-3 miles on the day. Sidmouth was lovely, really picturesque, and the fog even started to lift as the day went on!
