I’ve watched quite a few old films recently.
Nina was away in New York with work for a week, but before she went we had a cinema date to go and see Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, at the Everyman in Crystal Palace.
Definitely not Tarantino’s best (as I’ve heard a few people say) but I enjoyed it and I suspect it might be one of those ‘better the second time around’ kind of films.
I did then have a few days where I could indulge in some very Taranino/OUATIH-esque films (which Nina wouldn’t want to watch in a million years). So I did.
While none of them blew me away it was a pretty fun experiment.
When Nina got back we sat down to watch The Souvenir, Joanna Hogg’s latest, which was pretty brutal viewing but quite brilliant.
These past couple of weeks I read The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck: How to Stop Spending Time You Don’t Have with People You Don’t Like Doing Things You Don’t Want to Do, a book whose title is almost as long as the book itself. It’s very gimicky and one note but probably a valuable reminder.
I also picked up the Nintendo Switch again after quite a while and got stuck into Inside, which I’m loving.
Here’s a song to put on while you’re cruising around the city in your convertible, pickng up hitchhikers:
