Now I know I am a bit of sad sack – yes, I need to get out more – but the other day, it was very very hot so we took ourselves off to the movies to see The Ides of March which had been recommended to us. The choc-top was pretty good too, but very over-priced!
You must go and see it. It was great – all that political intrigue and goodies turning out to be baddies. All that political guff revealed as … guff. It is quite topical too, with the nomination battle now on in the US.
Of course, George Clooney is pretty easy on the eye but I thought the rest of the cast were excellent, including Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
I think it is about to go off, so do not delay. There were only four people in the theatre when we went.
I had also loved two other movies by this director, Sideways and About Schmidt, so I guess it was no surprise that I enjoyed Ides too.
Nothing on the teev, apart from Arrested Development. Any suggestions? When is Breaking Bad coming back on? How can I know how Walt and Jesse are getting along?
