Saturday night Rob and I (post football of course) decided to download a movie from Apple TV to watch. We had nowhere to be, a bottle of pinot that needed seeing to and there was NOTHING on TV. OITNB is also not delivering as we’d like it to be…so a movie it was. We NEVER watch movies…only ever on planes it seems and we had a decent overload on the plane from Europe last month (please bear with me while I can still say that) and we very rarely actually go to the movies. So anyway, we decided on Mystery Road, an Aussie film that looked great and we felt great because we were supporting our local film industry. And while it looked the part, it was SLOW and a little disappointing. And I eventually started to nod off around the 58 minute mark when NOTHING had happened. So we turned it off and tried again last night to finish it off but it was still a little, meh.
After a while I asked Rob to turn it off but I wanted to watch something FUNNY. And a comment from someone on Facebook had me downloading The Trip quicker than you could say “Gentlemen to bed, for tomorrow we leave at 9:30!” and we watched that beautiful Lake District countryside pass us by and I was happy.
But it’s hardly groundbreaking is it? I’d even seen it before. But honestly, before that I was looking up Google for Oscar winning films from 2011 onwards (because apparently I am 87 and the internets can tell me such things). I want to know what to download the very next time I want to watch a good movie.
What have you watched lately that’s GOOD?
Tell me everything!
