Another of our ‘dinners round the box’. Tonight, it’s 2022’s ‘The Banshees of Inisherin’ that did very well at The Golden Globes and has been tipped to do well at the forthcoming Oscars. What’s not to love?

Set on an island off the coast of Ireland and miles from anywhere, these two lifelong friends face a dilemma when one of them decides to end their relationship.
This was Mrs P choice of movies and with no sign of any spandex, this definitely didn’t feel like my sort of film AT ALL!
Fine Actors, Great cinematography, superb acting, gentle Irish humour, a Liberal use of ‘feckin’ plus a donkey who almost stole the movie. But, all-in-all, one of the most boring films I’ve seen in a long, long while! 😕. That’s 1 hour 54 minutes (it felt MUCH longer!) that I’m not going to get back! 😲
Obviously, I’m missing something that the Golden Globes felt worthy of praise – but whatever it was, it really did pass me by!
I shan’t have any problems sleeping tonight!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
