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.

  • 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.

    Dallas Buyers Club
    Great performances and I appreciated the fact that it never took the sentimental route. (****)

    Mad Max: Fury Road
    Confused. Terrible dialogue. And what little CGI they did use looked rubbish. A huge disappointment. (**)

  • : Jiro Dreams Of Sushi

    Jiro Dreams Of Sushi
    Documentary about the best sushi chef in the world. Made me really want some eel nigiri. (****)

  • : Me Without You

    Me Without You
    Second time I've seen this. It was the film that made me realise Michelle Williams was amazing. (****)

  • : Meteora

    Meteora
    Beautifully shot. Not enough plot. (***)

  • : Untouchable

    Untouchable
    One of the most successful French movies of all time. I can see why. (****)

  • : Involuntary

    Involuntary
    Swedish film that cleverly looks at group dynamics and how they influence the actions of the individual. Sort of cinema verite in style, the shots of often framed as if you are a voyeur looking on. (****)

    What a great movie. Amazed I had never heard of it before. Stunning cinematography. Loved it. (*****)

    Interesting thriller. Not a classic, by any means, but worth a look if it's on the telly. (***)

  • : 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. (****)
