Having started the year with much movie-going, I already seem to have accumulated a staggering list of things that I really want to see.

As my boy prepares to jet back out to India, I think I’ll be spending his absence with fictional companions.

The Hobbit
Gangster Squad
Life of Pi
Django Unchained
Zero Dark Thirty

Any locals who fancy joining me, shout and let me know when you’re around and I’ll keep you posted on my plans.

There’s a heap more (Argo, lots of comedies), but I reckon they’ll wait until they’re out on DVD. Oh wait, Blockbuster has gone under. We might have to join the 21st century. Dammit, just because the boy built foundations for Lovefilm doesn’t mean we ever used them!
