    ​​​Now the football is done, this evening's cinematic entertainment is Die Hard.

    Dir. John McTiernan (1988)

    Bruce Willis
    Alan Rickman
    Bonnie Bedelia
    Alexander Godunov

    Years since I've seen it. I picked up this BluRay set last week. I've not seen the 5th film at all, and I'm not sure I've seen the 3rd one either. I'd not thought the 1st one was from as early as 1988; I'd assumed it was early 90s.​

    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

      Many years since I've seen this. Like Die Hard in 1988, Lethal Weapon is also a Christmas movie...

        It's entirely possible I haven't seen Back to the Future this century, which kind of makes me a time traveller, doesn't it? Yes, it does.

          With the third and final part of the adaptation of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials being unveiled over Christmas, it seems the right time to begin at the beginning.
          It's one of my favourite books.​

                "The game is afoot. Again."

                Tremendous fun again. Breezy, punchy, funny, clever sequel sees Millie Bobby Brown's titular character open her own detective agency. Her first case is to find a missin' girl. Mayhem ensues. In Victorian London's seedy underbelly. Matchstick makin' factory. There is corruption from on high.

                Millie is by turns plucky, perky, silly, brave and always so adorable. Is there any better young actress who can do it all? Zendaya? Maybe. She is like Hermione Grainger on steroids. When she gets punched in the face, you feel it. Tremendous fight choreography.

                The edittin' deserves mention. Pulsatin' and whip smart. Funny. Lots of jokes. A rollickin' fun time for the whole family and ya gotta love a mainstream, modern film where the main theme is

                WORKERS UNITED, WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED

                      Speaking of Star Trek, I found this bizarre commercial for the original series.

                            Fiend Without a Face

                            Dir. Arthur Crabtree (1958)

                            Marshall Thompson, as well as playing the lead role, also directed most of the film as titular director Arthur Crabtree thought science-fiction and horror beneath him so he seldom turned up on set, and withdrew completely before filming was concluded. I remember seeing this late at night in the 70s, and it really gave me the willies. It holds up really well.​

                              Just finished watching His Dark Materials. 😢
                              I've read the book three times so I knew how it ends, but I'm still in bits 😢
