. . . evah!  . . .
facepalm:  ::)

what next, BM wearing a baseball bucket back to front, signing up as a belieber?

So not only daft enough to wear it back to front also daft enough to use his hand to shield his eyes as well...

Much this does explain...  noooo:

Well, it wasn't that sort of movie at all! ::)

But it was excellent, Thompson was amazing and Jason Watkins played a blinder!  :thumbsup:

So we decided to watch Black Panther (the Marvel Film)

Mostly Marvel films are entertaining and while hardly cerebral they make good enough watches

This was 130+ minutes of utter trash.  How it got the positive reviews it did and the $1B+ box office take just shows the world is bonkers
Well, whatever nevermind

Started to watch "Thor" on the tellybox last night. It was dire, turned it off after a half hour or so.

I knew my decision to avoid Marvel films was the right one

Some of them work OK but your life will be no poorer if you never see any of them

It's better than I ever even knew.  They say that the world was built for two.  Only worth living if somebody is loving you.  Baby now you do.
