    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


    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.
