“Every kind of peaceful cooperation among men is primarily based on mutual trust and only secondarily on institutions such as courts of justice and police.”
Albert Einstein

… so I present you with a poster for the movie Emm and St M and I saw this afternoon:


Review? Funny as hell. Exactly what one’d expect from the makers of Shaun of the Dead (which Emm and I both loved, incidentally). All 3 of us were carded, since it’s rated R. And, rightfully so, I’d guess. There were a couple of grisly scenes that upset my brother, of all people. I was fine, and only winced in one scene.

All in all we agreed that it was a hilarious spoof of action movies (it had it’s serious points, too, in the movie’s defense). I particularly liked the homage to Point Break and Bad Boys II *snickering*. It also took me the better part of the movie to identify several actors from the BBC. And St M pointed out that it was Cate Blanchett as the protagonist’s ex (she was wearing a mask and crime scene unit suit).

Lots of fun (if pricey! I can’t even recover from the price of snacks). We got home, spent some time with Mum, ate dinner – well, everyone but Mum (who’s sick) and Emm (who’s just picky) – and got tons of knitting done. I’m nearly past the insteps of Monkey. Yay.

And that’s about it.

(oh, p.s.: St M and I were much better behaved this time, and no one noticed us making snarky remarks over the previews anyway…)

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
