Christmas confessional

Christine and I were very blessed to get many good wishes and presies over Christmas. We spent Christmas day with my parents having slept in (I worked Christmas Eve). A big thank you to all the people who sent cards, and presies etc.

On Boxing day I went and spent a JB Hi Fi voucher my brother gave me, on some CDs and DVDs. So now I have a couple of confessions to make...

I bought this which I really like. I watch it almost as soon as I got home because it's just so funny. It's easily a four star (note the four fingers) film.

I also bought this film. It has a similar concept to The Matrix but appeared back in 1998. Four stars (or fingers) from me for Dark City.

Most shamefully I bought this (it was cheap).

I'm Sorry to say but I actually like this. Later albums I found are rubbish, but this is my little pop indulgence and for that I'll give myself a stupid award. This isn't the worst CD I own by any means... but before I own up maybe you should...

i must confess i also enjoy rocking along to avril, whenever my pastor's itunes is nearby, tho i couldn't actually go and buy it for myself - i would melt in shame long before i got to the counter!

i did find dark city interesting, but not as far above the rest as fans thereof seem to place it.

good to see you enjoyed your Christmas spoil!

I didn't think Dark City was that great. A pre-Matrix movie that is good though is The 13th Floor. Well, I liked it.

I own heaps of CDs I perhaps should be embarrassed by, but I'm not. Two JT albums, heaps of Synth, Gwen Stefani, crappy Australian music...

The worst CD I own is a John Butler Trio album...

Mike failed to mention that BOTH of us REALLY like the movie Hot Fuzz.

I hadn't seen Dark City before ... the style reminded me a bit of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow ... it was a bit trippy but I wouldn't call it a fave.

You have no idea how often Mike has played Avril's album since he bought it.

And those movies are 4 stars out of how many? 5 I presume? I've been curious about Hot Fuzz. i'll have to be sure to watch it now.

Yup it's out of 5 stars.

Ooo I should mention that Hot Fuzz has a bit of swearing and some squeamish blood and guts moments. In it's defense it uses some very clever black humor to do it.

I really enjoyed this film and I'll e re-watching it.
