OK, INTEREST PEAKED!

So, I’ve just seen the first full length trailer for Peter Rabbit.

I’ve been a little sceptical about this film while looking at production stills and the teaser.
It didn’t feel like Peter Rabbit.
Mr McGregor certainly didn’t look like the Mr McGregor from the books.

BUT

And here’s the hook for me….. Domhnall Gleeson is playing Mr McGregor!!

This is a picture of Domhnall filming Peter Rabbit in London. I never thought I would be saying that Mr McGregor is looking fine!!

Domhnall fans will know that he loves doing comedy and has a wonderfully expressive face for it.
I could sit chuckling most evenings going through the Youtube videos for ‘Immaturity for Charity’ or ‘Your Bad Self’

After seeing the trailer I’m a little more relaxed about the way this film is going.
Could be quite a laugh.

CAN’T MAKE MY MIND UP

Domhnall Gleeson.
I love the guy to pieces. He comes across as a genuinely nice and funny guy in interviews.
He’s seriously cute when doing naive and lovey in About Time and Black Mirror.

dom 01

Hot as a General in Star Wars.

dom 02

Painfully irresistable as poor Clan Techie in Dredd.

dom 03

Amazing as Bob Geldof in When Harvey Met Bob.

dom 04

Totally irresistable as Caleb in Ex-Machina.

dom 05

To die for as Thomas Burberry.

dom 06

He’s going to make me cry as A.A.Milne.

dom 07

And I could keep on going……..
In public he’s always smiling and messing around.

And regularly sports a full beard which I actually quite like.

BUT…….

Here’s where I’m having some difficulty.
He’s currently filming a project called ‘The Little Stranger’ playing a character called Faraday.
IMDB states…..

THE LITTLE STRANGER tells the story of Dr Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1947, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants – mother, son and daughter – are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how terrifyingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

Sounds interesting and a little creepy!!
The only thing is this…….

Faraday has a moustache!!
He’s been out recently promoting the release of ‘Mother’ and has had to keep the tache because he’s still filming.
I really can’t decide if I like it or not.
His bubbly personality still shines through, I just don’t know about it.

What do you think?

And yes, this has been an opportunity to gratuitously post lots of pictures of Domhnall Gleeson.

Sorry not sorry.

THROWN UNDER A BUS

This blog may contain some spoilers for Logan Lucky and American made. You have been warned.

It’s been an eventful week since returning from Italy.

I got to see my boys in their new movies, Logan Lucky and American Made.

Logan Lucky had me chuckling all the way through.
Adam Driver delivers one of the funniest lines I’ve heard in a movie for a long while.
As things go a little haywire with a vacuum machine that’s sucking money out of a vault, Daniel Craig’s character, Joe Bang, gets a little over zealous and accidentally points the machine at Adam Driver’s one armed character, Clyde Logan. The inevitable happens and Adam Driver dead pans a look at Craig Daniels and simple says, with a deep Southern accent, “you sucked ma arm off!!”.

Writing it down doesn’t do the scene any justice. It was hilarious.
Adam Driver has a pouty, miserable look on his face for the entire movie. He’s adorable.

American made was just unbelievable!!
That fact it’s based on a true story makes it all the more unbelievable.
Domhnall’s character, Monty Schafer, is a bit of a sleezeball and just in it for himself. The fact he ends up with a juicy promotion astounded me.

On Sunday evening I went to see Murron singing her first official gig at Esquires in town. She was amazing, although she’ll never admit it herself.

After Esquires, I stayed in town with Murron for a while and we went to The Barley Mow as they were having a strip night!
In hindsight, a bit of a mistake as I got thrown in front of a bus by Murron and her mates.

As the stripper started his show, I felt I was safe stood at the front of the crowd as this is a gay bar and the stripper was interacting quite nicely with the men. Unfortuantely he decided to end the show with me! who had been gently pushed in his direction by Murron and her mates. Thanks guys.
Not that I didn’t enjoy the experience, underneath that flag with a very impressive specimen flapping around in my face as I rubbed moisturiser into his abs.

Not ahamed to enjoy myself at any opportunity!!

Anyway, it was back to work for 07:30 on the Monday morning. My first full shift for around 3 weeks. It was a bank holiday Monday so not too stressful.

Tuesday was a late start at Uni for a speaker who came in to talk to us about reflection.
She was hilarious!
It was then an early finish to allow us to continue with home study for our next essay.
This allowed me to take Dharma into the hospital for an official photo of the start of work on the new play area that she’d helped to raise money for.
We honestly didn’t expect to reach our target for another year or two and here we are, just 6 months down the line and we will have a brand new play area by October.

I’ve spent the last couple of days, toying with my reflective essay and doing chores around the house. I’ve also eaten like a pig and drank like a fish!!

My new favourite drink is a LARGE wine glass, half filled with ice, a good shot (or two) of Limoncello and then filled to the brim with Prosecco!! Very refreshing and very moreish! It doesn’t last long.

Unfortuantely, all my Limoncello is now gone. The last memories of Italy are finally gone.

Come tomorrow morning, I seriously need to get back on track with the diet and exercise. I’m feeling bloated and horrible.

I have to think about the holiday me and Ian are planning for 2019!
Our big year.
End of Foundation Degree, 25 years of marriage and my 50th birthday.

We have decided to do a grown up holiday instead of the Orlando theme park experience we had initially talked about.
We know we want to do a tour of Italy but to what extent depends on a few things over the next year.

One of the things we have looked at is a 21 day train tour! Taking in Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples and lots in between.
Once you take out the expence of flights, there’s a lot more you can do!
Watch this space.

So that’s it.!
Back to normal life for the next two years.

Domhnall has two movies due out at the end of September and they couldn’t be any more different.

Crash Pad which takes Domhnall back to his comedic roots with ‘Immaturity for Charity’

Followed by Goodbye Christopher Robin which I’m seriously hoping will pick up an Oscar or two in the new year!

Then of course I get to see both Adam and Domhnall in The Last Jedi in December!
I literally can’t wait. It’s been almost 2 years since The Force Awakens and Kylo Ren and General Hux entered my life and turned it upside down.
I can’t wait to see how things develop for them in The Last Jedi although I’m really scared that General Hux will literally be going down in flames with his ship!

I may just cry.

CRASHING BACK TO NORMALITY!

It’s been an amazing few weeks.

Since coming back from Italy I’ve spent a lot of time doing a huge blog and uploading 996 photos and videos to Flikr.

I’ve spent today tidying up and sorting out washing.
I’ve gone through my wardrobe and had to get rid of the majority of stuff in there as it’s just too big for me now which is both heartbreaking and exilerating!

I did some school clothes shopping with Dharma which was really frustrating.
The school have now insisted that girls (and only the girls) buy skirts and trousers with the school logo on from a place that takes 30 minutes to drive to. Only problem is, the road I need to get there is shut but doesn’t actually tell you this until you are upon it and then you have to drive all the way back into Bedford to take the detour.
When we finally got there, the trousers were awful, tight and uncomfortable.
The school can go screw themselves.
I’ve just got her a nice tailored pair of trousers from Tesco. They are going to have to like it or lump it. She’s only there for the next 9 months anyway!!

This evening I’m still working my way through the wash loads and enjoying yet more Limoncello and Prosecco.

Tomorrow will be my last official relaxation day as me and Ian are going to Northampton for the day to see two movies and have dinner.
We are going to see Logan Lucky which is Adam Driver’s new film and American Made with Domhnall Gleeson!!. Can’t wait. Both of my main men in one day.
Dinner will hopefully be at Bella Italia!! Just to finish off my Italian theme.

Sunday, although not back at work, will be catching up on what I’ve missed at Uni for the last two weeks. I’ve got some serious catching up to do.

Then it’s back to work on Monday.
Back to dieting to prepare for the next holiday in Italy in two years.
Back to knuckling down to studying and work.

How boring!!!

OK, CAN’T DENY IT… LITTLE BIT EXCITED!!

So, I have finalised and submitted my next essay two weeks before it’s actually due and now I’m on holiday prep!!

I can’t deny it….. I’m just a tad excited.
Italy, here I come.
10 days, 2 villas, Florence, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, food, wine and a family wedding!!

Oh yeah, no husband and no kids!!

I am thinking about blogging as I go but it highly depends on internet services whilst I’m out there.
If nothing is posted for the next two weeks, look out for one big blog when I get home!!

When I do get home I have two movies with my boys to see.
August 25th sees the release of Logan Lucky with Adam Driver and American Made with Domhnall Gleeson.

Adam and Dom

Do not expect me to be doing anything other than spending the entire day in the cinema.

It is going to be a busy couple of months for Domhnall with not one but 4 film releases to look forward to.
American Made on August 25th
Mother on Sept 15th
Goodbye Christopher Robin on Sept 29th
and of course, Star Wars on Dec 15th

He then has Peter rabbit due in March next year, one film, A Futile and Stupid Gesture, in post production with no release date, Crash Pad with no release date and is currently filming Little Stranger.
He’s been a busy boy!

YOU HAVE NO IDEA!!

OK, you have no idea how happy this news makes me.
There’s a buzz on Tumblr tonight.
I can’t find any hard confirmation though.

It looks like one of my favourite characters from the 2012 ‘Dredd’ movie has finally, officially, been given a name in the comics.

In the movie, he was played my Domhnall Gleeson and was only ever know as ‘Clan Techie’
Poor Techie had his eyes replaced by bionic ones after Ma-Ma tortured him by gouging his original eyeballs out with her thumbs. Lovely.

005

He proved to be a popular character.
I won’t go into details about how he has become extremely popular in Kylux fandom.
Needless to say, Kylux fans are very happy with the choice of name.

It is an amalgamation of two much loved characters played by Domhnall.
Bill Weasley from the Harry Potter movies and General Hux from the Star Wars movies.

techiehux

Clan Techie is now officially named ‘Bill Huxley’!!

Love it!!!

POOR THING MUST BE EXHAUSTED!

So, I’m sat here at my computer this morning a lot more relaxed than I was yesterday.
I’m actually looking forward to my drive into Uni today. I’ll be able to rock out a little more now I know where I’m going.
I’m also looking forward to getting to know my Cohort buddies a little more.
Familiar faces I say Hi to around the hospital all the time that now actually have names!

Anyway, the reason for this post…..

Whilst enjoying my morning cuppa I thought I’d check out IMDB and see what my boys are up to.
I haven’t done it in a while and little projects have a tendancy to sneek in unnoticed.

As I looked at Domhnall’s IMDB it occurred to me that he has 6 films slated for release this year! and one (so far) for next year.
Most are in post production, one is marked as complete and one is still filming.
Whilst all of this has been happening he’s also guest appeared in the TV series Catastrophe!!

Has the man had any breathing time this year?!!
