London visit and films

The primary reason for my latest trip to London over this last long weekend was to attend Roz’s OU graduation ceremony. Along with Roz and I were also Roz’s parents and Elliot. It has to be said that Roz looked quite fetching in her robes and I also felt very proud for her when she when she went up on stage. She put an awful lot of time and effort into her degree and deserves all the recognition that she gets. As such, Elliot and I were both happy to stand up and clap and cheer when her name was called out.

Whilst in London I also managed to catch a couple of films, one of which was at the IMAX again, which is fast becoming my cinema of choice whenever possible.

Films watched:
The Day the Earth Stood Still

In interesting reinterpretation of the classic, which sadly, while glitzy, fails on numerous levels.


The Strangers

Exceptionally well shot and had scares and jumps a plenty, it’s a shame that it was pretty limited in scope.



Starts well, but ends badly. Wolverine is great, but they could have done so much more with the character.


Monsters vs. Aliens 3D

An undeniably fun family film, with laughs and action a plenty. Just lacking that extra touch to make it great.
