      Jack's Return Home (1971) - IMDb

      The other two easily reached copies turned out to be the Septic remake with Stallone
      Which last I'm watching now.

      Get Carter (2000) - IMDb

      Unsurprisingly meh.

      In a very meh sort of way.

      But there you go.

          After last night's miserable nonsense that was Siberia, tonight's film was more to my liking: Accident Man (2018), concerning a kind of guild of hit men (and one hit woman) though, being Londoners, they prefer the British term "assassin". Matters get personal for one of them, leading to internecine strife and general mayhem. In its premise and various aspects of its plot it's pretty ridiculous, but that doesn't really matter because it's great fun, not taking itself too seriously and packed with action including loads of mixed martial art fights and a fair amount of explosions and gunplay. Definitely worth a watch if you're in the mood for that kind of thing

          And a tad more of The West Wing, because I really need to finish that so I can get my life back

          Early night now, as I'm heading south again tomorrow both to see my Dad, who's still stuck in hospital as we go to press, and for a family lunch to bid bon voyage to my eldest niece, who's off to the Antipodes in a few days to join her younger sister, who's been bumming around Thailand and suchlike places for a few months and is now on her way to, or maybe recently arrived in, Australia.

          Goodnight all

            Base on an excellent but short lived comic strip of the same name from 1991, that appeared in a weekly comic called TOXIC! created by Pat Mills of 2000AD fame.

              Morning.

              Grey. That grey that's so grey it makes gray look less grey.

              Colder. 14 deg in the living room with 7.8 (current & min) in the laundry room.

              Sunless.

              Dire.

              Dank

              Dark.

              Dreary.

              Depressing.

              The only thing to look forward to is the CHCFC telling us about VR tomorrow morning.

                Morning denizens

                Grey, but with occasional brief glimpses of sunshine, and none too warm at 3°C out there today

                Off south shortly.

                  Ah, that explains the comic-style drawings of the cast members in the initial bit of the end credits

                    Morning all

                      Well there we go.

                      House vacced.

                      Lentil <pffffft> soup simmering on the hob.

                      Which I've managed to stick to the bottom of the fecking saucepan.

                      Sunday lunch was a cook in the bag leg of NZ lamb from Morrisons(reduced).

                      I dunno what it was about it, maybe the length of time it spent in the freezer, or the cook in the bag part of it, but it didn't smell overly wonderful when opened.

                      I suppose it'll have to do for this week though.:

                      Might be the rosemary or whatever on the skin.

                      I wonder if The Cat will like it.

                      No posts since 12:56?

                      Oh, how the might of TPD is fallen.

                      Look about the ruins and weep, oh ye mighty.

                      The sands stretch to infinity & beyond, undisturbed.

                      What it needs is that meridian cove to come in here & call me a racist.
