My film of last week was Dune (1984). I first watched it over a decade ago on video and I really didn’t like it. Having rewatched it now, that was purely down to how much talking there is in the first hour or so. Once it gets past that it’s colourful fun. I’m glad that I’ve watched it again, it’s really changed my opinion of it and I would happily watch it again.
This week is all about Bond. After what feels like an eternity there is a new James Bond film out on Thursday, No Time To Die. It feels like an eternity since the film was first announced. I’m very excited to see Craig’s last Bond film and I can only it lives up to. Since No Time To Die is being shown every 10 minutes at the cinemas around me, there isn’t a spare screen for anything else, so I won’t be going to the cinema this weekend at all.
Before then though, The Lord of the Rings has received a 4K IMAX release, and I’m going to that tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday. It’s been a very long time since I’ve seen these films. I think I watched them once each on DVD after the cinema way back when. I’m sure I’m going to love them all over again and can’t wait to re-watch it.
I’m also going to be finishing over The Hunger Games series at some point in time for Thursday’s Franchise Catch Up post.
I have Wednesday off work this week and it’s really time that I get some reading done. The last 2 weeks have been hectic with Internet issues and work and I haven’t read a page in a week. With so many books to read, I’m going to finish Alejandro’s Lie on Wednesday.
I hope everyone has a great week and let me know what you will be reading and/or watching this week.
Thanks for reading and until next time,
