My Recent Adventures

I have been a busy bee recently. Films past & present as well as an Orchestra have been appreciated.

Tatsumi was a film following the career of renowned Japanese cartoon artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi

I found this to be very informative regarding the creation of "adult comics" in Japan. Artists found that their material was not deemed suitable for the main audience, i.e children. This new genre was called Manga.

I took another trip to Bridgewater Hall and watched The Halle Orchestera again. As per the other time I have watched this Orchestra it was a wonderful performance. I decided to try the "cheap seats" in the Gallery this time and found them to be the best seats so far. I shall certainly book seats there again.

Lots of films watched recently:

Les Diaboliques - Great film with a fantastic twist
Thes Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Hilarious old folk
Four Lions - How not to be a terrorist
Disturbia - How to spy on your murderous neighbour
Cell 211 - A guard caught up in a riot
Tell No One - What happens when your dead Wife appears online
Picnic At Hanging Rock - Very strange bunch of schoolgirls
The Most Dangerous Game - You will be thankful not to be on this island
Repulsion - Crazy woman
Rampart - Very naughty policeman
Roman Holiday - Lovely feel-good film of a wonderful city
Raiders of The Lost Ark - Timeless classic
The Infidel - A Jewish Muslim
Midnight Cowboy - Bloody fantastic film
Howl's Moving Castle - Animated fun
Pather Panchali - A real look at rural Indian life

Lots more planned over the coming weeks

Another trip to the RNCM to watch the group Portico Quartet
