Trailers, Quotes and Stuff

‘Saving Mr Banks’ TV spot
The making of ‘Mary Poppins’, poor Dick Van Dyke will never live that ‘cockney’ accent down.

‘Children of the Night’ (1991) trailer
This indie vampire horror with really dated SFX is not good at all.

‘Spatz’ opening credits
This ITV 1990 - 1992 kids show was set in a grotty fast food restaurant. It amused.

BBC1 drama Christmas 1988 promo
The cute animated logo is cute. But the rest is dated. In 1988, BBC1 gave viewers an ‘Eastenders’ special set during WW2 that had bad acting. An adaptation of some sub par Catherine Cookson knockoff and ‘Poison Candy’ a John Hurt drama that was to be a big deal except it aired the night of the Lockerbie bombing.

Almond Choc = nice.
I like Tobacco Choc.

RIP Peter O’Toole.

They’re remaking ‘Rosemary’s Baby’?!?!

‘The Cutting Edge: Fire and Ice’ was worse than the original.

Reviews of ‘Red Hill’, ‘The Wrong House’, ‘The Conspiracy’, ‘Legacy’, ‘Dirty Magic’, ‘Independent Study: The Testing’, ‘Peaceable Kingdoms’ and ‘Pandemonium’ forthcoming.

I am reading ‘The Poisoned Chalice’.

I saw the 2010 movie ‘Conviction’ where trailer trash Betty-Anne Waters went to law school to prove her brother wasn’t a  murderer. It took 18 years but she and the Innocence Project proved he wasn’t a killer. Along the way she lost her marriage and children and the film didn’t mention that her brother was killed 6 months after his release. A depressing film.
