I decided to go sit in the cinema for three and a half hours tonight and sit here winding down after what was a mediocre film with special effects to die for. It majored on the By sexual nature of the warrior class, and left out some important bits of history.
The lead was not big enough, both in stature and ability, however Tony Hopkins, whom I nearly had the oportunity to meet at an A.A. party (nearly name dropper, and no I am not a R.A. I was a guest) Held the whole film togeather with his narration as Homer or someone similar I think I fell asleep at the time he was named.
Would I go see it again? NO!!!!!!!. Oliver Stone, I know you read my blog, what were you thinking about producing that sort of film, with a weak lead to a Covert Homophobic nation? My explanation, given the way that Homosexuality is becoming more and more the norm, you are ahead of your time. Having read the Arab boy many years ago it somewhat spoilt the story line for me. Its Gonna cost you, regrettably. The cinema had seven people in it at the busiest show they had this week!
The best thing about this evening was the Praline ice cream which I shouldn`t have had ,due to the diet, which Incidently is working great (up to now) I am down to fifteen stones ten and a half pounds (100.227 Kilograms). Blahh!!! " The quickest way to loose weight it to eat everything that you hate" "Ardie 1981" .
I sit here now at midnight thirty and there is just me and the screen, the freedom to blog, that I have discovered fecently, has added a new dimention to my life strangling existance. I complain that I have no action in my life but when I speak with others they appear to have had much less.
I guess that I am expecting too much. I have had a very full life most of the time. with short lulls like now, that I have learned instinctively to fill with little joys like my granchild and Blogging. You could have ablolubtely no perception what a pleasure it is for me to be told that I am not too old to use a computer! or that someone may becoming addicted to my blog, Thakyou so very much it means such a lot, to a grumpy old man, Sleep tight and may you have pleasant dreams.
