HBO rarely disappoints.
This was surprisingly good.
Really good.
Could have been slightly longer as it felt rather rushed near the end but it was still brilliant nonetheless.
The casting was brilliant.
Spot on.
Definitely haven't had to wait a year for another series of something in a long time.
I'm excited.
And anguished.
Tempted to read the book but shall wait patiently.
Here's hoping nothing gets ruined before the year is up.

When bad acting happens to us good people

I think she is perhaps one of the most beautiful women in the world. Her skin is flawless. Her figure is ridiculous.
So of course a fault must lie somewhere and unfortunately it is within her acting skills. I have noticed she does seem to get worse as time goes on.
She has learnt nothing nor will she ever need to because she is that ridiculously good-looking.
Her films as well are dire.
I'll start with the good so that we can focus on the much, much longer list of the bad:
Sin City (but really, acting was not what Sin City was about)
Never Been Kissed (film aficionados may disagree however)

Well, now that that extensive list is out the way, we'll focus on her larger body of work:
Fantastic Four/2
The Eye
Into the Blue
Love Guru (one of the worst films ever made. Not even funny Troll 2 bad).
Good Luck Chuck
Valentine's Day
Little Fockers

As a thing of beauty, amazing.
As an actress, she is one of the most irritating, boring and poor performers of not only her generation but, perhaps, of alllll time.

And breathe.

TV Show of the Day


Delocated is brilliant. The first series only contains around 7 episodes, so at 10 minutes each you can easily binge on these in a day. A couple of hours, really. It also means there's definitely no excuse not to give it a go.
I've recently been informed a second series is now available, so felt it necessary to dip back into this old (& newly revived) gem.

Adverts & Spike Jonze

I must embrace my love of this man for I seem to enjoy everything he touches.
A brief mention of Marvin Gaye eventually led to old Gap adverts being brought to mind and eventually Spike Jonze was stumbled upon (though not through stumbleupon).
I feel I shouldn't really finish here but I have had one of those soul-destroying days & wish nothing more than to share and relish in 90s/early 2000s advert nostalgia.
When things were good.
