Trailers, Quotes and Stuff

‘Here Alone’ trailer
Shane West, a woman alone, zombies, 2 other survivors and what happened to her family? Looks good.

Best Lines:

‘Dunkirk’ trailer

So who is Danny Huston?

Lemon curd doughnut - yum.

I will review ‘Fir’, ‘Elephants Can Remember’, ‘Big Little Lies’ and ‘The Ninth Rain’.

I won’t review ‘The Break Down’.

Recall the girls’ comic stories: ‘Combing Her Golden Hair’; which was about a girl who finds a silver comb and learns her mother is a mermaid. ‘Creepy Crawley’ which was about a scarab brooch that controls insects. ‘Olympia Jones’ was about ponies. ‘The White Mouse’ was a stupid tale of a nurse in the resistance in Nazi occupied Belgium. ‘Slave Of The Swan’ is about an ill-treated girl with amnesia. Nobody calls the police about the obvious abuse. I never heard of the comics: ‘Lindy’, ‘Girl’ or ‘Penny’.

‘Vengeance Is Green’ is about an unpopular girl who is bullied by evil girls in flares. The bullies are choked by ivy, why does she save them?

Best Lines:
“You actually want to borrow a book, Nina? Well, I’m not sure. You’ll get it grubby.”

“Why does everyone enjoy making me sad?”

“I’m sorry you have to be out here next to the dustbin!”

Houseguest claims the city is big, impersonal and unfriendly. He has an (inflated) sense of importance. He’s kulturman. Houseguest makes mess and noise and whines. He sits and stands around and yaps. He needs ‘rest’, from what?!? He fiddles about with our kitchen stuff.

‘RTE News’ Quote:
“Vacant possession.”

On ‘Neighbours’: David and Leo’s family don’t want to know them. Lauren and Drab lecture Paige on morals. Drab, Lauren and Paige plan to move. Drab is ineffectual. This has no psychological realism. Shelia is big and blowsy. Lauren and Drab treat their pasts as insulting mistakes. There is no desolate sadness. Lauren has smug distain. Paige ruined 2 families and now she gets to win? This created no awed delight. Drab wants to take Piper away from fat Terese. He’s foul. Piper won’t go. She is still obsessed over Tyler. Mark thinks Steph is losing it. Lauren thinks Mark has a distant look in his eye. Steph acts crazy.

Best Lines:
“They really want us gone.”

“Unsavoury words.”

On ‘Hollyoaks’: Sienna’s pregnant, Darcy’s alive and Nick is a creeper. Bart is skanky and Joel is conflicted.
