Trailers, Quotes and a 2004 Tape Tale

‘Man In A Orange Shirt’ promo

‘Game Of Thrones’ promo
“We have an army, a fleet and 3 dragons.”

‘Study Hell’ trailer
A low budget parody of ‘The Breakfast Club’ done slasher style. This looks rubbish.

Best Line:
“He might not be Freddy, he might not be Jason, but he is the teacher in charge.”

Chorizo extra - eew.
Cashew, almond & cinnamon gluten free granola - yum.
Nocciolato fondente novi - yum.

Another ‘Body Snatchers’ remake?

Amazon is adapting Agatha Christie books - namely books already adapted.

I won’t read ‘Scourge’.

I recalled the old ‘Bunty’ story ‘School For Scruffs’.

I watched some of the ‘Marple’ ep ‘A Murder Is Announced’. Matthew Goode, Elaine Paige and Catherine Tate were in this tale. A murder is predicted in the small and so half the village show up at the house where it is supposed to happen. Patrick (Goode) and the maid (Tate) stare. The villagers turn out to have a stupid willingness to assume the best of someone. No.

Best Line:
“Will there be screaming?”

The much hyped Prom Night on ‘Eastenders’ was dumb. A bimbo did a slo-mo fall onto some candles. Then the sprinklers went off and stuff exploded and someone did a dramatic slow-mo turn showing off her fake eyelashes. This was ridic.

I’d try smoked mayo.

Anyone see ‘Reach For The Sky’? Or ‘Rambling Rose’?

Recall ‘The World At War’?

“Body orifice scanner.”

‘RTE News’ Quotes:

The Shadow Queen’ Quote:

Lawrence Of Arabia’ Quotes:
“A nation of sheep stealers.”

“Great things have small beginnings.”

“I do not want your company.”

“How much of that is there?”

Cleared out a tape from 2004. There was a ‘Dead Like Me’ ep ‘The Bicycle Thief’ - enough said.

Then there was a ‘Xena Warrior Princess’ clip show ep ‘The Xena Scrolls’. The framing story set in 1940 was okay. There were ‘funny’ accents and nobody does anything sensible.

Best Lines:
“The power to turn myth into history.”

“Don’t make me giggle.”

“Useless tagalong.”

Then came a witless ‘The Pretender’ ep ‘Indy Show’ and finally there was a ‘Cleopatra 2525’ two-parter ‘Hel And High Water 1&2’ in which they don new outfits and visit an undersea city. They were rubbish and devoid of merit.
