A disappointing weekend part 2
So home from a golfless morning and therefore time to go into town, do shopping for Sunday lunch (Bin was riding, assuming the snow hadn't reached her) and plenty of time for a Guinness or two at the local before the England/France match. Feeling down I couldn't resist treating to myself to the DVD 'The Village' even at £14.99 from the display of the top 10 videos at the supermarket. It was no.3 in the chart. no. 2 being the Bourne supremacy which we've already seen. I'd heard a review on Friday claiming the Village to be the scariest movie yet, The review on the back stated 'THE VILLAGE is a riveting, edge-of-your-seat chiller With unforgettable performances from stars Sigourney Weaver, William Hurt, Adrien Brody and newcomer Bryce Dallas Howard, this powerful suspense thriller is the must-see hit of the year.' Well I thought 'I'll look forward to that this evening'
In the meantime I had a pint and the match to look forward too. The first was considerably more satisfying than the second. A defeat by the French, at home, by one point - unbelievable. Incredible an to make things worse the French played crap!
Now seriously pissed off!
Well at least we have a decent film to watch - yeah right - it turns out that the Village is the biggest load of crap ever produced with a plot that seems to have come straight from a Scooby Doo cartoon only not as scary. Avoid this film at all costs, unless you can see it for free, infact I have a copy going cheap.
There are not words to express just how pissed off I was on Sunday night
Actually there was an unexpected pleasure to Saturday night, Channel 4 screened 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' one of my favorite films.
