I’ve spent the afternoon with my feet up just relaxing and unwinding ready for my annual leave.
I’ve forgotten about the EON fiasco. That can wait until tomorrow and should be easily sorted.
This afternoon I’ve watched 2 movies from very different ages.
Both of them masterpieces in their own time.
The Ten Commandments with Charlton Heston and Moon with Sam Rockwell.
I chose The Ten Commandments after seeing a trailer for Exodus, Gods and Kings.
This film looks amazing!!
I’ve always loved the big biblical epics of the early film years and have been waiting for someone to make an up to date one with modern special effects.
I was bitterly disappointed with Noah earlier this year.
After the appearance of the rock monsters and guns I just phased out of all interest in that piece of crap!!
Anyway, this looks really good and is based on the same story of The Ten Commandments.
Looks like one that’s actually going to get the blood pumping instead of making me think WTF is going on!
One thing the bible is good for…… amazing stories that make for great films.
I also saw a trailer for another movie that looks good while trawling youtube earlier today.
In the Heart of the Sea.
It’s based on the true story of the sinking of ‘The Essex’
The Essex was a whaling ship and back in 1820 and it was attacked and sunk by a sperm whale.
Survivors spent three months at sea and turned to cannibalism to survive!
There were only 8 crew members left when the ordeal was finally over.
The first mate and the cabin boy wrote accounts of the ordeal and those stories served as inspiration for Herman Melville’s novel ‘Moby Dick’.
I must admit, Chris Hemsworth looks absolutely stunning in this one.
Right, back to chillaxing.
