Awww Jack Hargreaves <3 I've gone all warm and fuzzy.

I'll go halves with you on the Out of Town DVDs

If you are serious about getting the Out of town box set you’ll have to get you skates on as its currently deleted. So is Out of town number 3 including “market day” when Jack laments about the closure of cattle markets and visits Ringwood market. We have sold 256 in two years so I’m gutted its currently not available. Will have to get Mr Anderson on the case.

TJ - It is the Ringwood episode which I saw. Remarkable stuff. When was that filmed? Presumably some time in the 70s which I realise was a while ago but still, amazing scenes. The idea of a woman bringing in two pats of butter she had made at home to sell really struck me. Does that happen anywhere nowadays?

Cotton reel motors. That's it. I was trying to think of those the other day. I had this vague image of my dad and a rubber band and something that whizzed along the floor but I couldn't recall the specifics. Thanks for dusting off that memory for me.

One You May Have Missed

  • Ian Holding: Unfeeling

    Ian Holding: Unfeeling
    Unforgettable novel told from the point of view of the son of a white Zimbabwean farmer whose land is reclaimed by an armed mob. I thought it was an oustanding debut and am surprised the author didn't go on to bigger and better things.

Big Mouth at the Movies

  • : Guardians of the Galaxy

    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Good fun, I thought. Not the best film in the world but a cut above the usual superhero stuff. (****)

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    Atomised
    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
