I don’t often do a post, friends, where I chitty chat or just shoot the breeze with you.
But today this will be such a post.
Because, as much as I hate to admit it, my mind is sort of blank of anything that seems very interesting to share.
Do any of you care that I watched these three movies last week and want to know how I would rate them?
Okay, great, now I have something I can talk to you about…
Let’s start with Kidnapped-Five Stars
The acting and the scenery where both superb. I had seen it before many years ago and was glad that this version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel was as good as I had remembered it.
Jane Eyre-Four Stars
This was a good enough watch, but it just didn’t live up to my all time favourite version, starring Ciaran Hines as Mr. Rochester and Samantha Morton as Jane Eyre.
The 1997 version of Charlotte Bronte’s novel will always be the true ‘Jane Eyre’ for me.
Under The Greenwood Tree-Three and a Half Stars
This was enjoyable enough…
And I didn’t consider it to be a waste of my time.
But I found it to be a bit too cheesy for me.
Tim and I also watched several You tube movies this past week:
Two newer Miss Marple movies starring Julia McKenzie-I like her in this role.
Joan Hickson is my number one favourite Miss Marple, of course.
We watched a couple of the older Poirot movies.
You would think I would have them memorised as many times as I’ve seen all of the Poirot programs and movies, but I’ve found I don’t remember every detail.
Thank goodness, so I still enjoyed them.
And lastly, on the lighter side, we’ve been watching our Mr. Ed DVDs.
Oh my gosh, I had forgotten how funny this show was.
I don’t have to rate this for you, you already know how good it is, don’t you?
Just so you know that I am not spending all of my evenings glued to the TV, I will be along real soon with a lamp project that I have been working on!
I bought a lamp shade much like the one above, and now I am rigging a dresser lamp to it to convert it in to a much needed swag light to hang over my reading area.
I think you’ll like it…
I’ll show you the finished product in a day or two.
