Cromwell's Head
by Jonathan Fitzgibbons



I've been getting into reading a bit about history recently ..since I never had a history class at school.. ever.

Cromwell (1599-1658) was a brilliant military commander and political leader.

Less than three years after his death (where he had recieved a very regal funeral attended by thousands)
his corpse was dug up, executed and be headed.. launching his head on three centuries of extraordinary adventures..
This book tells the story of  this remarkable journey right up to its current (secret) resting place..  with lots of humour whilst also providing the reader with a compelling portrait of this great man..

Very enjoyable read..

Inside Number 9

Fantasticaly dark British series, now up to 4th season..
Can be funny at times but also a little disturbing..

The Cassandra Crossing 1976

Typical star studded mid 70's fun. Bit dated now but great cast.. The model work was pretty decent too
and surprisingly graphic scenes also.. I'm sure this wouldve been R rated. Unusual for a disaster movie..

Anyway, I'll watch anything with Burt Lancaster in it..

Feud:  Bette and Joan



Starring Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford and Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis

Tells the story of these two legendary actress's coming together after years of bickering and intense dislike of eachother (and with their careers on the slide) to make a B horror movie together..

What Ever Happened To Baby Jane
in the early 60's..

Firstly... both actresses are superb in the roles, as is the whole cast. The era is re created to perfection.. I wasnt really on board to start with tho, the first couple of episodes seemed a little pedestrian.. But Im glad I've stuck with it. Theres a lot more to theyre story than I'd realised...

Very good..

Thanks :)

I hadn't realised there were so many differences when it came to clothes...

I think I know this, quite unusual attire for a Clint  character..

Couldn't sleep last night so ended up watching Australian horror movie

The Killing Ground... 2016

Deliverance down under !

It was well made as far as these things go.. Couple out camping in the outback stumble across a horrific crime scene.
Some nice twists etc... Reminded me a little of Wolf Creek but with rape scenes  and violence against a baby thrown in. Nasty.

Is the Australian film industry dead set on dissuading tourists from visiting and holidaying in their country ?

If your a fan of Star Trek then I think you might enjoy Season 4 episode 1 of Black Mirror on Netflix..

It's a great collection (Rope Burns) of short stories...

One major difference between the book and the film is that in the short story Clints character gets to punch out one of
Her family members.. It would have been such a quintessential Eastwood moment... Quite brave of them not to use it...

I think just about every major acting star has had his "peacoat" film... Redford, Nicholson etc...

Ok... Here's an easy one...

In which film do we see Clint wearing a peacoat... ?

Coincidently I bought my peacoat in NY just after we had coffee KC :)

Looking at Clint I'd hardly call him a master of the art of disguise :)

Correct on the scary clown tho....  :)
