Yes David..... I think that is Jane Horrocks on the tesco ads...

I watched a Who do you think You Are episode with her a few series was one of the better ones.



David Report 9 Sep 2010 18:11

Is Harrocks the voice in the current Tesco ads?


David Report 9 Sep 2010 18:02

I bought a film recently. Little Voice.Starring Brena Blethyn and Michael Caine at his best and the big star was was the singert LV played by Harrocks she was DIAMOND I recommend it.

I film that always makes me laugh is BABE the wee piglet aka sheep dog

I thought toy story 3 was actually better thatn TS2....the whole story, the way they put it together, it was even quite sad.........which shows how well it was done when you get teary eyed over Animation!!

and is it my imagination or does Woody actually look a bit like Tom Hanks?

My favourite animated film of all time though has to be Monsters Inc...I`ve heard theres a sequel coming out.......can`t wait.

Hi Nicky,

I've read many of her books too - passed down from previous generations lol. As you enjoyed her books, I think you would find the film Enid a real 'eye-opener'.

My OH loves the Toy Story Films too :) The way in which they are made is so clever.

Hi catie,

No I havn`t seen Enid..........funny that she was strange when she wrote such brilliant books, my favourite childhood books were the Mallory Towers series,I read them over and over again.

Saw Toy Story 3 last week...very good, and probably going to see The A Team next week.

Hello Everyone :)

Perhaps I'm a bit odd lol, but I've never enjoyed going to the cinema. Always found it a bit too loud. I would much prefer to snuggle down on the sofa and watch a film.

I've just watched 'Enid' and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was impressed by Helena Bonham Carter's portrayal of Enid Blyton. My goodness, what a strange lady she was. It's certainly a film I will watch again. Has anyone else seen it ?

Hmmmm David....

Not so sure about progress.

I still love going to the cinema, that whole big screen thing is a million times better than watching at home, despite the fact a lot of us have quite big screens at home nowadays.

Even as a young child I loved the Cinema.

The Kia -ora orange drink in the plastic container where you had to push the straw through the lid to drink it that the usherette sold, and the lovely Tub ice creams where all part of the package.

Even being shown to your seat by Torchlight...all part of the fun..

I still think the cinema is a very reasonable price, even with the 3D films costing around £9.95 a ticket, and the food and drink not cheap now. its still a couple of hours { or more} of entertainment for less than £10,00 a trying going in a pub or restaraunt and only spending that much money.

And yes David it was fun queing in the Rain!!!



David Report 4 Aug 2010 08:51

Was thinking about films in general.
Used to work all week looking forward to going to the cinema on a Friday or Saturday night to see what ever was on show.
Would even queue in the rain to get in.
Pop corn and ice cream or fruit juice on sale to sustain us.
Bag of chips on the way home.
The cinema was a major part of our weekends.
Now we can watch films all day every day,without leaving the house.

Gentle nudge please

Thank you

Watched Judgement at Nuremberg last night.
It's a good film but far too long.
Little dialogue from Burt Lancaster, but when he spoke it was worth hearing.

Looking forward to watching Cape Fear starring Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck.

All the old musicals... lovely.
But favourite?
Can't beat it for a Christmas mood.

I recall Debbie Reynolds. Wasn't she in Singing in The Rain?


David Report 24 Jul 2010 08:28

I bougt the JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBURG DVD yesterday.Starring Spencer Tracy Burt Lancaster Montgomery Clift. A powerful true story of court room drama. Burt Lancaster plays a German on trial who pleads guilty.


Cheryl Report 23 Jul 2010 16:07

Hi everyone, does anyone remember the film Tammy with Debbie Reynolds, every time I hear that song it takes me right back to when I was about 7 years old which would be 1957. I remember I loved that film was always singing that song.


Nickydownsouth Report 23 Jul 2010 11:11

Went to see Inception last night..........what an amazing film.......I was absolutely engrossed from the start.

Leonardo Di Caprio is brilliant in it, as are his supporting cast.

If you loved Memento, you`ll love this, but i actually found this a lot easier to understand.

off to see Toy Story 3 next week.......



David Report 18 Jul 2010 18:16

Nicky,in an otherwise excellent film I got the distinct impression it was made in a tank during the helicopter sequences.


Nickydownsouth Report 16 Jul 2010 22:07

David.......I think Perfect Storm was one of those films that would have been better on a big screen at the Cinema, Inception looks like it could be one of those..............unfortunatley my first viewing of Perfect Storm was on DVD...don`t think you quite get the same impact on an ordinary size screen...
