- High School Musical
No really. I sat down last Friday evening to watch this film, as I had heard a little bit of hype about it (not to mention numerous adverts on telly for the DVD!) Anyway, I had to go to dinner so recorded the film, so I couldn’t use the sing along subtitles available through the red button. :-(
Now, I was aware it would be cheesy and hideous, and I was vindicated in this assumption. However, it’s so cheesy and rubbish – that is actually brilliant. It’s so bad it’s funny, but with catchy tunes, and predictability – all of which make it totally fantastic. I am buying the DVD!
I was also surprised by how many people I know that watched it – and most of them thought it was so tacky it was cool too! Role on the sequel… HSM 2 – Sing it all or nothing!
UPDATE: I am so over this now!

- The Black Dahlia
Well, on Wednesday night TA and I went to see the Black Dahlia at the cinema. My god it was confusing.
I won’t go over the story in any detail, because I really can’t be sure I’d get it right, although it was entertaining and funny (in places,) about thirty minutes in, you start to wonder what the hell is going on. Although, when TA starts to tell you once you’ve exited the cinema, things slowly begin to make sense.
The plot revolves around the strange murder of a young girl, who looks uncannily like the daughter of a Hollywood property tycoon, but it is a bit more complicated, due to the corruption of a member of the police force…
So, yes see it, but take your thinking caps with you!
