Happy New Year

We spent the evening at home, drinking champagne and watching the Independent Film Channel, which was showing an excellent Irish movie called Intermission.

I love that, to sit down and watch a movie that I've never heard of, and really enjoy it. I felt I needed subtitles at times though - some of the accents were difficult to understand. One of the comments I later read on the IMdB site said, "Kevin Smith meets Quentin Tarantino... in Ireland" and that sums it up pretty nicely.

Sounds relaxing. I think I'd need more than one bottle of champagne to watch that movie though,ha,ha..

I'm not much of a Quentin Tarantino fan, so probably wouldn't watch that movie. We caught an old monster movie on TCM. One of those 50s it came from outer space films. The "special effects" are always a delight.

Happy New Year, Karen.

There is violence in this movie, but it's not as bad as a Tarantino film. It's more like the gritty aspect of Pulp Fiction I suppose, with a kind of smart quirkiness that I like in movies.

Sounds like a movie I would like. And I, too, use the subtitles even on movies that are in "English." I do wish they would include a little idiom or slang glossary though :)
