My grandparents had a corgi for many years, and they were lovable and loyal dogs, and it was always nice that the Queen helped to make this breed more popular. A light quick read that made me smile. 4/5

I am not immune to a bit of fun - I get that this is not meant to be a serious drama, but it is hard to take any of this nonsense seriously, but I guess most of the younger audience won't care about that, they just want the big scenes, the chases and fire. I see reading the Wikipedia entry that the movie is loosely based on a video game which explains it all really. So this is a bit of a Friday fail for me - 2/5.

This is British Police drama at its best, with a fast dramatic pace and I couldn't wait to watch each episode, so much that I have ignored the rest of the shows on my DVR and reading any books this week. I do so hope that there is a second series in the works.

After seeing this movie - A Star is Born several weeks ago, I fell in love with this song more and more. It was nice to see that they won the Grammy for it, and I am sure that the Oscar will be theirs as well. Such a nice part of the movie, and both Lady Gaga and Bradley Coopers voices melt together.
It is a song that appeals to so many people too. I have heard the 30 year old surgeon at work singing along, and was in a dress shop the other day and all the ladies were singing along too.

In this movie she plays a Bolshoi Ballerina that ends up with a leg injury ruining her career. In order to support her and her mother, she becomes a government trained seductress, using her skills to gain control and power. Somehow I didn't end up falling into the story and believing what was happening, it just lost its natural edge and tried to be a bit hard and raw, but failed. Grey uniforms, harsh accents and blunt haircuts didn't convince me and I kept getting distracted by internet shopping.
By about 1/3 of the way through I got a bit bored, and wandered in and out of the living room, doing some chores while I semi watched. When I cam in on a horrid torture scene that was enough for me and I switched it off, not caring how it ended. 1/5

He comes across as a nice guy. Good to his friends, treated his mum well and loves his wife, daughters and three grandchildren. 4/5

Call Me By Your Name is a movie set in 1983 in a small rural Italian setting. Elio is 17, and is a bit put out when his fathers young 24 year old research assistant Oliver comes to stay for the summer taking over his room and charming all around him. Slowly a love affair develops for the rest of summer. Beautifully filmed this movie circles around the story about a slow summer love. 4/5
