Seasick Steve - You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks (2011)

Cinema film of the Month
The Cabin In The Woods - A film explaining why that if all other horror films were real the reason why it was those monsters attacking those people in those locations. A very Joss (Whedon) film, could have easily fit into an later series of Angel.
Marvel's Avengers Assemble - I wasn’t sure what direction it was going to take in some places but Joss Whedon and all involved pulled it out of the hat. Good screen time for everyone and an oddly funny role for Mr Hulk.
Film on TV
Johnny English Reborn
Seven Pounds - The tale is all pretty much laid out from the beginning (although there was one slight twist, but I enjoyed Will Smith.
The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button - Fincher + Pitt = somethign special. I’d heard some bad things about it, but I liked it,
Best DVD bought
Wifi bridge - To attach to my Sky box so I can get 'Sky Anytime +' to download loads more telly I have no time for.
Acer 5733Z Laptop (Intel Intel Pentium, 4GB, 640GB, 15.6" Display) Grey - The power of net is slowly returning to the downstairs.
May has a bank holiday, birthday party and DIY (probably done by someone else) :o
