I was assaulted last night
Bet that title got your attention, but calm down, it was not my body as such but my ears.
I mentioned that my family were taking me to see Pirates of the Caribbean, part four. I was a little apprehensive about it as the reviews weren’t wonderful, but if you just take it
with a pinch of salt, [not hard with all the sea water] and just enjoy the graphics and sheer cornyness , it’s passable, If it wasn’t for the delectable,funny,sexy,corny,handsome Johnny Depp, it wouldn’t have been much worth watching.
The mermaid scene was brilliant, I thought anyhow.
Now then to get back to the title, I haven’t been to the cinema for years, and I mean years, I think it was the Towering Inferno. LOL and they allowed smoking.
To be correct , a couple of weeks ago I did go to our little local cinema in Christchurch to see The King’s speech, a truly brilliant film, with the cleverest casting. The cinema was very little, not tlike what I went to yesterday, at the Tower Poole, and, according to Lisa my g/daughter, it’s not the biggest there. I went into this huge area the size of an aircraft hangar, with a screen the taking up almost the whole of one side. The seat was like an armchair, an das you pushed your head back it tilted, cor, luxury, oh and it had a little holder for your cup.
BUT, when it started, I nearly jumped out of my seat, it was so loud, commencing with trailers for several animated type films, with things flying all over the screen, balls of fire and great plane crashes, cripes, every noise was louder than the one before.
My family thought it was amusing to see their poor old Mum/Nan jumping every time her ears were assaulted.
It was an experience, and I must say I enjoyed the whole experience, plus the obligatory pop corn.
And yes Pen, I did blow JD a kiss with your name on it, and I swear he sent one back xxxx catch.Bu**er you missed, I didn’t
