We did something a little different this afternoon and sat down to watch a movie. This was not one of our DVDs, but something Hubby was watching on youtube yesterday and as I tend to just listen in and play ‘guess the actor’, it piqued my interest so he set it up on The Big Screen.
Our ‘big screen’ is a 21″ (diameter) computer monitor so trying to read the credits at the end is impossible from where we sit, but for entertainment, it’s good enough for us and definitely makes a change.
The film was called ‘Displacement’ and about time travel, changing the past and future by playing around with quantum physics. The cast was relatively unknown to me, though I did recognise Sarah Douglas (she was in Superman II as the lady bad guy Ursa) and Bruce Davison (he played the Senator in the 2000 X-Men movie). The storyline was a little like TV’s Quantum Leap meets The Time Traveller’s Wife as our brainy leading lady tried to fathom it all out to save her boyfriend from being murdered. It wasn’t bad, but confusing, and Hubby fell asleep after twenty minutes as he couldn’t follow it. I stuck it to the end when all was revealed, sort of.
Spoiler: the boyfriend didn’t die, and basically, it was all her fault for dabbling.
The day has therefore gotten away from me, so any plans I had to make cards have gone clean out of the window.
I’ve just got back from walking with Kela and her owner and the beach is still packed. There was a family of 12 overflowing onto the pavement outside a beach hut and none moved out of the way to let Kela and her Mummy pass. At least the park isn’t so busy and the geese are still pooing everywhere, but no souvenir tonight.
