Depressed by today’s Sunday papers, which seem to carry about as much human misery as is possible, I thought that I’d take my mind off just how grim things have become in the last year or two.
A trip to the cinema, did the trick, more so than the half bottle of wine I guzzled on getting home from work on Saturday.
Decided this afternoon to go see the film avatar, just to see what you get with a film costing around 200 mill to make. I have to say that nothing is left to the imagination, computer generated images and detail are superb, the 3D is perfect throughout the film.
The films story was a good, as any blockbuster type, and the real test with any film, for me is how often I check the time, typically a bond film will have me wondering how much longer is this going to last at least a couple of times, a classic like pulp fiction not once, as was the case with avatar tonight.
Still middle aged angst is never far from me and a couple of irritations' are with Vue cinema, why do they charge a credit card handling fee on top of the ticket price, also the damn sound, deaf as I might be why is necessary to have it so loud, perhaps as well as 3D glasses they could offer ear defenders.
Mrs Me often falls asleep, but was kept awake initially by the astounding 3D and then the sound system managing to last the near three hours film.
