Wow it's been a busy week with the footy and I'm enjoying it, there are some great matches. Today's England win was fab wasn't it? Two of their goals were scored when I went out the room so I like to think I had a part in that. A big well done to our lads and may the success continue. I'm so worried about getting too excited because of so many years of disappointment but we still have to have hope otherwise it where would the world be. It's just a game.......a game we need to blooming win!! No pressure but I do need a World Cup win in my lifetime. Too much to ask??? Maybe.
Great drama continued this week with Our Girl, Ackley Bridge and Poldark. I will come back to those later. Nashville has started again and this will be the last episodes now to end it forever. I don't want it to end. I may well go back and watch it all again. At present it is on Sky Living at 9pm on Friday evenings.
My son and I ditched the tv this week and popped to the cinema. to see Sherlock Gnomes. This is the follow up to Gnomeo and Juliet which I enjoyed very much, but this second movie was even better. I'm not sure who was more excited to see this, me or my son. I had a feeling he was accompanying me. I have got a love for gnomes and I'm surprised I don't actually own any. This may change but I would expect them to come alive when I wasn't looking.
Sherlock Gnomes is sent to save all of the gnomes as they are being taken prisoner by Moriarty. He threatens to smash them to pieces on Tower Bridge but not if Sherlock can foil his plan first. It's gripping on the edge of your seat stuff this but I love the gnomes and so want them to be saved.
I loved this film......Gnomeo and Juliet are still the main characters and go on a bit of a 'rocky relationship' moment but do they they get back together to take over to be head of the garden? Well you'll have to go and see it to find out. No spoilers here.
Great voices provided by James McCoy, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine, Ozzy Osbourne, Stephen Merchant, Julie Walters and so many more. Half the fun of these films is to guess the voices but I have a son who memorises all the cast of these films so I can just ask him and he can tell me, saves me time on Google.
Overall a great film and worth seeing especially if you saw the first one. David Furnish (Elton John's hubby) is one of the producers so you can guess what the soundtrack includes. Yes lots of Elton in there which is fab and also makes the movie great.
So there I leave you this week, not so much of a tv review but I do like to throw a movie in from time to time. have a great week and please join me for Music Monday tomorrow if you fancy. For now though take care.
