Hello everyone, I’m back again with another update on what I’m planning on watching last week. I won’t mention books, because I read about 4 pages since last Monday. It was a busy week, made hectic by my Internet going down on Saturday morning. Had an engineer out today who believes something is broken underground outside and has to get someone else out tomorrow to check it. I’m currently using my mobile as a hotspot to upload this. That’s why my posts will be sporadic over the next few days. Hopefully it’s fixed soon.
Because of this I’m having to work around my mum’s house, to abuse her wi-fi. I’m going to be uploading posts from there on my break/lunch. It may be a bit all over the place, but I’ll be back to normal as soon as possible.
The lack of wi-fi means I can’t watch any streaming services. Thank God I have a fondness of physical media because that’s what I’m stuck with for most of this week. I’ve got a few more Argento films to watch from my birthday and The Snake Girl and the Silver-Haired Witch arrived today.
I’ve sent back my rental discs earlier today (reviews for Them!, The Craft and The Lords of Flatbush coming very soon), so I don’t know what will be sent next. Should find out tomorrow and will be watching them this week before the weekend, to hopefully get a couple more.
I’ve been re-watching Daniel Craig’s Bond films with Tabby as she hadn’t seen them before. Quantum of Solace is still a mess. I hadn’t seen it since the cinema release and couldn’t stand it, I disliked it just as much this time around. Casino Royale and Skyfall are just as great as I remember. Spectre will be watching soon, I remember enjoying it, but not as much as Skyfall.
Cinema wise it’s a pretty quiet week. I’m going to be watching The Many Saints of Newark on Wednesday. I’ve never seen The Sopranos, but the film just looks so good from the trailers that I have to give it a go. I’m also off to see David Lynch’s version of Dune on the big screen on Friday. I’ve seen it before, a long time ago and remember being really bored. I’m a big Lynch fan and I loved the book when I read it, but didn’t think much to the adaptation, I’m hoping to enjoy it more the second time. Really it’s just an excuse for Tabby to see Kyle MacLachlan on screen, he’s one of her favourite actors.
That’s it for this week, I’ve got another weekend off, after booking the Saturday off for a now cancelled concert, and will be watching more and hopefully finishing a couple of books.
Well that’s what I’m going to be doing with my spare time this week. What are you planning on watching and reading this week? Let me know in the comments I’m always interested to find out.
Thanks for reading and until next time,
