we watched The Angels' Share the other night - enjoyable enough, a few decent points made, but a long way from Loach's best work. Is he going a bit soft?

The Hobbit. Not exactly by the book, but we enjoyed it. I think it's even better in 2D.

The Hitcher (2007 remake) just because everytime Sean Bean maimed or killed it was hard to distance his character from his O2 voiceover. As usual the original (with Rutger Hauer) rules. This one was gory sarcasm however..

Primitive London - part of the BFI's Flipside collection.. A semi documentary look in to the seedier and less seen side of Sixties London.. Mods Rockers (Ace cafe) and Beatniks.. Billy J Kramer instore.. Striptease school (striptease clubs could only get licenses if they became a private members club and also had to offer alternative entertainment so its not as hardcore as one would think) and the moral standing behind couples engaging in key parties is discussed.. Very interesting.. Some good titles in the BFI Flipside worth checking out..

Tonight watched this. Gotta Dance. Never heard of it before but it was delightful. It's about the creation and progress of the first-ever senior citizen hip hop dance team for the New Jersey Nets Basketball Team! Yes really! Brilliant.




Followed by Searching For Sugarman. Bit late to the party of this one, so it's about time. Very much enjoyed this, great story, but it still felt like there were gaps unfilled and questions unanswered. Fantastic otherwise.

I LOVE my TFC umbrella! :-)
