    The Pirates of Penzance

    ★★★

    I watched it again, mainly to test the colour settings on my new TV.

  • The Negro Soldier

    The Negro Soldier

    An interesting glimpse into the past. Paints a very rosey picture of life as a black soldier in the Second World War, and I wonder how many of the original viewers saw the irony of fighting racism with a segregated army.

    28 Up

    ★★★★

    The children of 7 Up are now fully fledged adults, and it's getting more interesting seeing how dramatically some have changed since 21, for better or worse. It seems clearer now that the series' premise - that our future personalities are determined from a young age - is not correct at all.

  • The Wind Rises

    The Wind Rises

    ★★★

    As an exercise in beautiful imagery, it's almost unparalleled. The storyline is touching and memorable, although the pacing is all over the place. Hope you like planes.
