Just a quick note to wish you all a Merry Christmas.
Here is a news article about an old friend of mine. I have known him since I was 4! Puts life into perspective.
How good a film is Transformers!
Serena and I watched it last night on BluRay and we were both shocked as to how good it was.
The effects of course dominate, but do not feel overdone or out of place.
Neither Serena nor I knew much about the plot (despite my Kids cartoon background) and we felt that the pacing of the plot and the characters were excellent.
I think the biggest thing that surprised us though was the amount of humour that was in the film. We were expecting a gritty action-fest, but this really was aimed at kids as well, and hence humour was used very well to lower the tension.
A big thumbs up for Michael Bay!
Life has been so hectic recently I think I blogged about something only to find I didn't!
Anyway, I just want to add something extra to my post "Slipping..." below.
The best thing for me about Mamma Mia is that it "De-Gays" Abba, bringing it back to being acceptable. I was pleased to see that the 16 year old lad on X-Factor also admitted that Abba was his favourite group and was happy to sing one of their songs.
All in all, I hope this allows me to dispute Gareth's comment on my last post!
