week four

The Hype Monster

Uber * hype * has an immensely negative impact on me... over many years films, gadgets, tv series, books and various fads have been given a wide berth purely because the * hype monsters * push stuff as *must* have/do!

However, just people watching amuses me... it is mildly amusing to be be a sidelines hype observer...

if you can avoid translating German and cope with fade in/out subtitle this is a clever, fun response to launch of iPad :o)


Or maybe just consider getting one of these, it's like a tiny ipad...

Magical stuff

Sugar Plum Fairy

It's Christmas Eve, and preparations are underway for a splendid party, taking place at the Stahlbaums’ house. The mysterious magician Drosselmeyer entertains the guests and young Clara receives from him the gift of a beautiful wooden Nutcracker doll. She is instantly enchanted.

Ballet is really a bit off the beaten track for me... thanks to a very easy to enter Twitter competition we got a pair of tickets for Birmingham Royal Ballet performance of The Nutcracker...

Wow! magical night out, simply blown away by the music, set design, special effects and stunning performances all round.

Quality stuff, get yourself there!

Expecting more

Movie image
Title:
Eragon
Rating:
4 out of 5 stars

It’s become a bit of a Christmas tradition, meeting with friends for a movie and few drinks.

Movie theme always towards fantasy/sci fi so 2006… Eragon

Saphira (the dragon) an impressive creation – special effects wise and the voice of Rachel Weisz.

Real quality cast involved but their characters never developed to any depth.

Probably why I was left with the feeling…

I was expecting more

Don’t think this was the tag line the director was planning to leave with me ;-)

Tough at top end of this type of stuff, with Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter to compare, so with this in mind I would say it was a good trip into fantasy land, but not a great one.

Few tasters below…
