This week we've watched three films!
Normally we try to have a serial or series on the go but we seem to have run out of ones we both want to watch. (I've since remembered that we still have the final series of The Bridge to re-watch. Excellent.)
First up was Look Up Now - no, I've checked, it's Don't Look Up. I think I keep getting confused with Don't Look Now.
I thought it would be funnier than it was and found myself worrying at the prospect of the world ending. Especially if you can actually watch the progress of a comet as it heads towards your destruction. What would you do if you knew it was the last day for earth? For me I think I would want to be with family, and tell them all the things I'm not sure if I've told them enough, like how much I love them and how wonderful they are. And that God loves them even more.
Next, Mr Jones. This was even more terrifying as it was a true story about what was really happening in Ukraine while Stalin was boasting about how amazing the new USSR was. Politicians being politicians while people died on the streets.
Finally the gory The Harder They Fall. Another one I thought would be funnier. Great soundtrack. I'm not sure if it's my ears or whether people mumble more in films these days but I spent a lot of the film guessing what was going on from the phrases I could grasp. Got better in the second half with an intriguing end.

This morning I allowed myself to finish my jigsaw. I say 'finish'; there are four edge pieces missing!
