Been a little unwell of late, so no gym. Other excitements – started to knock down a wall in our new house – converting the bathroom and toilet into one. That’s a new experience for me (and a vvery messy one). Seen a couple of films recently – Tomb Raider and Miss Congeniality. Tomb Raider was actually better then I was expecting, because everyone had slated it so much. First of all the DVD is packed full of extras, which we like, and the sound (dolby digital) is reasonable too. It seemed to be heavily biased towards the bass, and […]
Miss Congeniality is a real “Ronseal” film – it does exactly what it says on the box. No plot surprises (not even a hint of a twist) no gratuituous ‘dressing-room’ scenes (which would have been oh-so-easy), no mental energy required. Sandra Bullock really shines though as FBI Special Agent Hart, who has to enter a beauty pageant as Miss New Jersey. She doesn’t really convince as the hard-as-nails one-of-the-lads tomboy, but has the fish-out-of-water slighty accident prone woman discovering herself down pat. I actually really enjoyed it though – very very funny in places, extremely camp throughout, and no-one in […]
Tomb Raider was actually better then I was expecting, because everyone had slated it so much. First of all the DVD is packed full of extras, which we like, and the sound (dolby digital) is reasonable too. It seemed to be heavily biased towards the bass, and the dialogue didn’t really seem to be loud enough to hear (unless you wanted to be knocked off your seat by the explosions). That might just be my set-up. As far as the film goes, it’s pleasingly enough on the eye. Angelina Jolie does a fair job of Lara Croft, but the ’emotional’ […]
Went to the gym again yesterday – did 15 minutes of running on the treadmill, followed by 5 minutes of rowing, with a couple of weights mixed in. Felt good actually – going to try and go climbing tommorow, and then the gym again on Friday, combined with some crunches at home on the alernate nights. Might even end up fit!!
Few bits and pieces. Firstly, two series well worth watching – Smallville (Channel 4, Sundays, about 18.30) about Superman as a teenager.. and secondly Enterprise (Sky 1, Mondays @ 20.00 and repeated Sundays @ 16.00) the prequal to Str Trek TOS. Other news – well started going to the gym again.. getting off to a slow start – went last Monday and this Monday. 15 mins of ergo (travelling around 3k3 both times). Hoping to go more often, but once a week is better that not at all!!
Just time for a quick plug – just moved my eutony domains to 123reg.co.uk, a very cheap and excellent company, it would seem! (see ad at far bottom left)
Happy New Year
