We went to see Darkest Hour last week, it was excellent. I wasn’t really looking forward to seeing it as have seen a lot of Churchill portrayals and the film is over 2 hours long and sometimes this is just a bit too long for me to sit in the cinema and give it my full attention, but it was over before I knew it, it kept me captivated the whole time. Gary Oldman’s take on Churchill was wonderful I would highly recommend this film
Another film we recorded was Darkman , considering I’m a big Liam Neeson fan I don’t know how I had never seen this film before. It’s actually 28 years old!! But to be fair it didn’t seem that dated and the special effect are really good.
IMDB give this film 6.4 /10 I’d agree with that it’s not too long and the story goes along at a good pace to keep you interested. If you like comic book heroes you will love this
We watched The Great Gatsby the other night we had recorded it over the Christmas period, I don’t really remember watching the original but this one was a very good performance by both Leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey McGuire we both really enjoyed this film and if you get the chance to watch it…….do so 🙂
IMDB gives it 7.3 /10 I might even give it a slightly higher score than that
I was given a voucher for my birthday last year, it was running out expired on 3/2/2017, it was for an afternoon tea. I looked at where the voucher was for and the reviews weren’t very good. So I decided to exchange it for a place where we had been previously Ruthin Castle Hotel. The tea was booked for 1.30
We arrived there about 1.20 made ourselves known at reception and we were taken through to the library bar where we were told they were expecting us and tea would be along shortly. An old building, it’s very dark inside and was quite cold on the day we were there, we sat down there were some older people having lunch snacks and after about 5 minutes my husband went to the bar and said we are here for afternoon tea. The girl behind the bar looked very blank and said that they were n’t expecting anyone. Half an hour later after things had been sorted out our afternoon tea arrived.
Sandwiches were not as advertised we were expecting Smoked Salmon Egg and Cress and Ham and Mustard instead we had Coronation Chicken Egg Mayonnaise, Tuna and Cheese and Chive the fillings felt they had come out of prepacked mayo ones from the supermarket and the bread was dry like the sandwiches had been left on the side, (but they couldn’t have been as they weren’t expecting us?)
The cakes were not as described either and were very dry and there was no Bara Brith, had I paid £29 for this treat I would have been VERY VERY upset.
Moral of the story we won’t be back again
