We’ve been over on WordPress for many months now so it may come as a surprise to some of you that this is my first post since we moved into the new place.
It was my choice for the Toffee Family Sunday evening film this week and I chose the wonderful Dead Poets Society – a film that I haven’t seen for over twenty years. I was very impressed by how well it’s dated (yes, I know it’s a period film) and the two (not-so) Little Miss Toffees were suitably impressed and inspired.
Now, my previous choice was Steve Martin’s The Jerk – and I was hugely disappointed to find that it hadn’t dated well at all. The girls laughed dutifully at the correct points but I could tell that they were finding it hard going.
So, the question to all you ‘Spillers is what good and bad experiences have you had when revisiting favourite old films?
PS. Now that I’ve mastered (I hope) a basic post the Bhundu Boys Album Of The Moment can’t be too far away.
PPS. Wow – it worked!
