Last night I went to see Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Like a lot of the reviews have said, it is a very good film.

The characters have been very well cast and played their roles well. Jim Carrey played the lead part of Count Olaf. I’m not a massive Carrey fan but I thought he played his character well. Another actor I am not keen on is Billy Connelly. I don’t find his comedy funny at all but his performance of Uncle Monty was superb.

The film was very well directed by Brad Silberling. The dark and gloomy colour scene throughout the whole movie worked very well indeed.

All in all a very good film which is nice as it’s been a long time since I have seen a decent one, these festive movies I have been watching lately certainly were disappointments. I highly recommend going to see this movie.

Now onto the topic of football again, all the top Premiership clubs were in action this evening and Arsenal’s hopes of winning the title were hit with a devastating blow as they failed to beat Manchester City at Highbury, the game ending 1-1. Chelsea on the other hand beat Middlesbrough 2-0 to put themselves 7 points clear at the top.

I really hope Chelsea don’t win the league as it will be a bad day for football. They would have bought the title not earned it over many years of team building.

All the talk tonight though will surround the Manchester United game against Spurs. With only minutes remaining it looked to be a dull 0-0 game until the Man Utd keeper, Roy Caroll made a terrible error and put the ball into his own net. The ball must have gone two feet over the line but the referee and lines men waved play on. An utter disgrace! Man Utd deserved to lose that game, instead they stole an undeserved point. I hope it doesn’t have repercussions on the final league table in May.

Last but by no means least, Neighbours returned onto BBC One this afternoon. Now the hopelessly unemployable and house wives will have something to do at 1.45pm on weekdays (I of course watch it later on Sky+ when I have finished work).

Sky of course has never been near a Big Issue in her life

In case you care what happened, “Jack the Junkie” had his court case, Steph’s having laydeez troubles and Lana is still a lesbian. Most importantly though, Sky returned and is still just as fit in 2005 as she was last year. Shame Cindy didn’t feature today though.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
