The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – Review

16 Jun

I love most anything British. I love Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. Bill Nighy is smashing in anything he touches. Tom Wilkinson is a great actor.

“It’s funny. It’s warm. It’s touching.” – Graham Norton

Now granted, it took me a few weeks to shuffle my schedule around to fit it in, but I finally did this week. The 14th actually, as a matter of fact. I love catching the first movie of the day, especially during the summer when the kids are out of school (not mine, everyone else’s!).  It’s relaxing, the theatres are wonderfully empty, and most importantly for me, there were NO KIDS!

Movie time in the a.m.

19 Dec

Couldn’t sleep due to the douchecanoe the floor below who felt like having black metal band practice at 3am. So what do I do?

I put on my Four Last Songs DVD, warm up leftover pizza and settle back. Upside, no work and no class 🙂 And of course, Stanley Tucci and Rhys Ifans ❤

Peace & Who
