So, I didn’t get to see a single live show last week. Not through lack of trying though. At least I was in one and that was a goodie. So Big Firendly and I decided to do a bit of a DVD catch up on the weekend. There are so many flieks we missed on circuit. Pirates of the Carribean – Dead Man’s Chest was the first. I understand why everybody said it must be seen on the big screen. There is no story to distract you from the special effects. In fact, there are no characters to distract you either. So, a very long special effect hangs onto Johnny Depp’s pirate. Naaa. Already can’t remember it.
Number 2 was TransAmerica. Now this was a totally different kettle of Fish. Awesome performances, particularly by Felicity Huffman, make this a gem. The story almost manages to remain unsentimental (except for the end) and I was really moved by it. It was a goodie that I’m glad I got to see.
Any good ideas for shows I should get to see this week? I’m going to see Duncan Farenheit and The Lank Tired Okes on Sunday 18 Feb at the Kalk Bay Theatre, but that’s a long way away.
