Brace Yourself

I don’t believe any explanation is required here.

If you haven’t seen these, do yourself a favor and just relax and enjoy the Bean.

We finished the Mr. Bean’s original shorts on October 29, 2017.

The One that Broke the Spell

One of our Disney favorites growing up was Beauty and the Beast (1991) so we (she especially) had been looking forward to the live-action redo.

Tale as old as … well you know

Cinderella (2015) was well done (better than the 1950 cartoon I feel) and I took that stock to the theater hoping for another good experience.

This is just a short snapshot to record that we saw it so I’m not going in-depth here, but we were disappointed. Many of the additions and songs to the story added length but they did not add quality.

We saw the film in theaters on July 19, 2017.

Batman on the Brain

I was playing through the Arkham series and as such Batman was running through my brain, so we took the next logical step – watched through the Dark Knight Trilogy (again).

After the bleakness of Arkham I was surprised by even the sunlight of the Nolan movies, but it was a welcome change.

We finished The Dark Knight Rises on July 16, 2017.

 

Poldark (2015)

We finished the first series of Poldark on May 17th of this year.

We had taken a break about halfway through the season, reaching the point where most of the characters are in a state of general happiness.

What does that mean? When everyone’s happen you KNOW things will go wrong. Terrible wrong. Inexplicably wrong.

That did happen, but it was worth the watch. A view of the time period through the eyes of investment and commerce and how those things affect not only the individual but the entire community was a different angle on this type of drama and I really appreciated that.

A disappointing finale (ruined by the last scene, which reminded and summed up the negatives we had felt throughout the season) pointed in a direction that meant Currer and I won’t be continuing the series but as I said – it was worth it.
