I went to see Be Cool this evening, the sequel to the 1995 release Get Shorty. The film stars John Travolta, who moves on from the movie business which he got involved with during the original movie and turns his interest onto the music industry.

The film stars a whole host of celebrities in both major and cameo roles. This excess use of talent does affect the storyline in a bad way. However Get Shorty is not about an award winning plotline or breathtaking acting. There are loads of in-jokes about the entertainment industry and funny film references.

This film has received mixed reviews from critics; I liked it, even more so than the original. If you’re after a film with a strong story line and an Oscar winning performance don’t see this. If you’re after a film full of jokes and entertaining gags I highly recommend this.

Moving on from films, I want to have another rant about Lee Bowyer, the Newcastle United and ex-Leeds midfielder. Bowyer made the headlines last weekend for fighting his team mate Kieron Dyer in front of over 50,000 fans.

After being fined over £200,000 and tipped by tabloid papers to be driven out of the club in the summer, Bowyer has come out and expressed his love for Newcastle United Football Club and the fans. Makes you think, he said the same thing about Leeds United and their fans a few years ago, only to go on and stab them in the back. If I was a Newcastle fan I would take those comments with a pinch of salt!


“I’d die for this football club
LIAR! LIAR! PANTS ON FIRE!

Bowyer is a liability and a thug. He has had disciplinary problems at every club he has ever played for, both on and off the pitch. I think Bowyer is more interested in money than playing and he knows with his ‘history’ no other club will take him and match the wages he is currently on.

If he stays at Newcastle, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the headlines again for all the wrong reasons. If he leaves Newcastle any club to take him on would be stupid as he could easily tarnish their name.

Bowyer used to be a fantastic midfielder, one of the best in England, in fact one of the best in Europe. It’s such a shame for his clubs and for the England National Team that his behaviour has ruined him.

  • 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.
