The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Rest Of Week

No plans as such but will try to catch the following on TV this week here in the UK.

Belleville Rendez-vous (Les Triplettes De Belleville)

The Office : Christmas specials - 2 new installments of the UK comedy which sadly by all accounts will be the last ones.



Merry Christmas

I'm on episode six of I, Claudius. Superb british drama. Derek Jacobi is fantastic as Clau-Clau-Claudius.Sian Phillips is the personification of evil as Livia. Highly recommended.

Will be watching Pirates Of The Carribean this weekend.

Saw Return Of The King yesterday and was blown away.

After I, Claudius, I will be checking out the extras on the Alien Quadrilogy box set.

Since I will be with my family, we will most likely watch more family-oriented films because my niece and nephew will be around: "Freaky Friday".
