    I would compare it to the original, but I think it's nearly two years ago that I watched that, so the memory is a bit hazy
    I watched it about a month ago & can remember little.

    I'm sure the review of same is somewhere above.

    Though I don't think it went into any great depth, to be frank.

    The first feature was "The Manchurian Candidate", 2004, Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, shedloads of people from NCIS, and Dean "Green Hair" Stockwell.

    The Manchurian Candidate (2004) - IMDb

    It was very good.

    I have the 1962 version too.

    Testing began that same month, in front of the Board of Trade Inspector, Colonel Wynne. Six locomotives loaded with pig iron or lead weighing a total of 370 long tons (380 t) were placed in charge of locomotive driver "Mad Jack" of Pontypool, who before making his first crossing had visited every public house in Crumlin.

    Limited amount of drama this morning. The 7:55 was 3 carriages, rather than the usual 6. So I waited for the 8:12 instead

    I'm sat here listening the first analogue electronics lecture for the 2nd years.



    Did they learn nothing whatsoever last year?

    And if so, how the feck did they get to pass the exams?

    It must be the "Oh, we did that last year, I didn't think we'd need to know it this year" thing.

    Fecking muppets.

    I'm pretty sure the chestnut trees outside are keeping their leaves longer this year than in previous years, though I'm not certain. One of them has only really got into the swing of changing colour over the past couple of weeks.

    Went to a supermarket - a different one from last time - and got some rolls with seeds.

    Maybe you could pop over to the state of the market thread and advise, no one can find any rolls there.
