Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
This week saw a return to my “to do” pile. I didn’t have a great deal of love for this figure. It is one from Reaper rather than Knuckleduster which might surprise one or two of you. Not entirely sure why I had such a lack of interest, I think he was just a victim of wanting him done to move on. I’m not normally given to such moods when painting, perhaps it’s indicative of the current times.
Well It Made Me Laugh
Give Me Five
I thought I would start something new from this week, my top 5 things under whatever category happens to take my fancy. Could be film categories, music, places visited, food I like, books – you name it. To start with I thought I would kick off with something not to random but probably controversial – my top 5 Science Fiction films.
Feel free to agree or disagree or even add your own list. The films are not ranked in any order and of course I have left a great number of fantastic films out. These just happen to be 5 films I can watch again and again and which blew me away at the time of there release. So, in no particular order:
- Blade Runner (1982)
- Alien (1979)
- The Terminator (1984)
- The Thing (1982)
- Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
What no Star Wars? Not even Star Trek? Nope. The longer the list the easier it is to simply pick everything and remove the debate process so that’s why I went for 5 rather than a top 10 or 20.
Even if we all disagree we should at least come up with a great list!
This week TIM has been listening to …
“Footloose”. I enjoyed both the original film and the remake and loved the title song. This version is an extended one and is a mash up of dancing sequences from movies. I do think the people who put these things together with such perfect timing are very, very clever.
This week TIM has been watching …
“Broken City” starring Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crown. I seem to be on bit of a role in terms of watching crap at the moment. I like both actors and thought I would be on a winner with this one but sadly not. Maybe it’s just me.
If at frist you don’t succeed try doing it the way your wife told you.
