Spectre Film Review and the Toilet Incident

Spectre Fil

  1. Toilet Incident

Before I talk about my thoughts on the new James Bond film I just wanted to take a moment to talk about my incident. That incident is me getting stuck in the toilet…

 

Basically, I went into the cubical before the film and somehow the lock to the cubical door got jammed and became very loose. So, I couldn’t open it. For the first five minutes I tried fiddling with it but I just seemed to make it worse. I then tried to phone my friend Dale, but I couldn’t get a signal. I tried to shout hello to someone, and to Dale, but no one heard me.

 

Ten minutes went by and I made no progress. There was huge gap between the top of the cubical door and the ceiling so I jumped up at it and peered down to see how far I would fall. I didn’t fancy my chances. In the end, I decided not to risk it as I was at an awkward angle and there was no way that I could have landed safely. So, I jumped back down and gave my hands a humongous carpet-esque burn.

 

I don’t really know what happened but it felt like I scratched my hands it fell more like carpet burn than a cut. In the end I decided to shoulder barge the door and with a good amount of force I got out. I said “Thank god!” and two men walked in… they must have thought that I was quite weird but surprisingly that didn’t really bother me as I was just relived that I managed to get out!

 

I’m really glad that no one helped me out as it could have been very embarrassing. Haha.

 

With that thought of the way, let’s talk about the film.

 

  1. Review

James Bond was really good and at this moment I prefer Spectre to Skyfall.

 

I actually do like Daniel Craig’s interpretation as James Bond. I think he’s more dynamic than the predecessors. However, he still maintains the suave ladies-man edge to his character.

 

I found the film to be very unpredictable. I was on edge plenty of times, most notably when he was in that humongous building and when he was in that helicopter. Oh boy, I thought he was going to fall. Then again, if he can survive a shot and fall into the water in Skyfall then surely he can survive that drop. Haha.

 

I was expecting one of the ladies to die, and to my surprise, unless I missed something, no one dies. Does that mean that James is now going to settle down with his new/latest female partner?

 

What I especially liked about this film is how active both M and Q were in the field. It’s weird to think that Lord Voldermort would become the new M and James Bond’s superior. Haha. Q was really funny and clever and I’m glad he was more involved. I had my suspicions that C was going to be on the bad side somehow and I was right.

 

I’ve seen previous Bond films but the only one that I watched all the way through was Skyfall. It seems as though, with Daniel Craig, that they’re exploring his past a little bit. It makes me wonder if the next Bond film will involve his past more. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see his brother-in-law in the future as well.

I hope you all have a good Sunday evening and please make sure that you don’t get yourself trapped in the toilet before you go out and watch a film. 😉

My Easter Holidays

The Easter Bunny

I really do enjoy the Easter holidays. It’s one of my favourite times of the year.

I didn’t really do any excessive celebrations I just spent some time chilling with my family. I received lovely Easter eggs from my parents. I got Thomas the Tank Engine, a Mars collection and a white Easter bunny chocolate. I’ve already scoffed down the chocolate bars and the Thomas Easter egg. They were divine. Yum. I couldn’t eat the other chocolate. I can’t really eat lots of chocolate once. I’m more of a health freak then a chocolate freak, except on Easter Sunday. Haha.

I did go on an impromptu bike ride around my Dad’s garage… I fell down 5 or 6 times. I scraped my knee and hands but the hot water from the kitchen tap soon cured those bruises. The last time I rode a bike was when I was 15, possibly younger. We are speaking more than 10 years ago. Haha.

I made a bit of a mistake recently when I washed some clothes.

Apparently, when you wash woollens, you add the detergent but not the fabric softener as the softener breaks up the fibres in the wool. However, I’ve been adding the fabric softener and not the detergent. Basically, I’ve been doing it the wrong way round. Haha. It’s funny to talk about but I was really annoyed when I’ve found out that I’ve been washing woollens wrong all this time. I used to be really sensitive when I thought that I’ve done something wrong and it used to be a big issue. However, in this case, instead of being upset I was just annoyed with myself for a matter of moments. Haha.

I’m still somewhat sensitive when it comes to getting things wrong, but I handle it a lot then I did when I was younger. =)

I watched the anime ‘Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?’ The first episode is really awesome and I’m eagerly waiting for episode two. =D I also watched ‘Only Fools and Horses’, the one about the Jolly Boys’ Outing. =D I think that’s a great episode, it’s like all guys going on a huge trip together with no girls allowed. Haha. I suppose you could compare the Jolly Boys to the Inbetweeners movies but in the 1980s. I did watch a little of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. I don’t go out of my own way to watch Ant and Dec but I do watch some of the bits that I find amusing. =)

I also spent plenty of time watching the Football. There were some really good goals this week. The Charlie Adam goal was a proper scorcher, I couldn’t believe he had the audacity to attempt that shot from long range. I was convinced that he was going to miss, but he didn’t. Bobby Zamora’s goal I think was special. Not many can score from the outside of their foot, especially from that angle. Jermain Defoe’s goal for Sunderland this week was really good as well. He looked really emotional after he scored that and he really lifted the Sunderland fans.^^/

I’m now spending this time watching White Chicks followed by Match of the Day 2 and Skyfall. I can’t listen to the song ‘A Thousand Miles’ without being reminded of White Chicks. Haha. =D Skyfall is pretty awesome too, but it does have a bittersweet ending.^^/

Happy Easter everyone. =)

Namaste.^^/
