Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

If you see one film this month, you should definitely go and see: Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri.Without a shadow of a doubt, it is the best film I have seen in decades. It is horrifyingly brilliant!

Film buffs will salivate over the cinematography, the script, and the second-too-none acting.  However, even if you aren’t a film buff, you will love this film because the plot is so refreshingly unpredictable. And finally, if, like me, you have been trying to wrap your head around how Mr Trump became The President of the USA, this film will give you some food for thought.

nuts about you‘To be nuts about’ something is an common idiom which means that you really like something.  In other words, you are really keen on something, someone, or doing something.  For example, I’m nuts about football.  And, I’m nuts about listening to live music.

To be as cool as a cucumber

‘To be as cool as a cucumber’ is an expression that means that a person can behave in a relaxed manner during difficult or stressful situations.  Unfortunately I am not as cool as a cucumber and more often than not I ‘freak out’ when I feel stressed.

Are you as cool as a cucumber or are you similar to me?  What was the last stressful situation you experienced?

 

Horror Movies

Don't look back!

What makes a great horror film?

The Halloween franchise has earned, worldwide, just under 367 million dollars.  That’s a lot of money!!!!

Truth be told, I hate horror films because I always have nightmares and I have to sleep with the light on for about 2 weeks afterwards.  This is not good for the environment or my electricity bill.

Are you a lover or a hater of this genre?

The Tower of London

The Tower of London is the oldest fortress, palace and prison of its type anywhere in Europe. With a long history of executions, murder and torture, ranging from hanging, beheading, to being hung, drawn and quartered, it is the perfect recipe for a haunted history.

It is no surprise that it ranks as one of the most haunted castles in Britain. Hundreds of ghost sightings have been reported in and around The Tower over the years. If you would like to hear 2 minutes of history about the Tower of London then click here.

Trick or Treat?

Trick-or-treating is a customary celebration for children at Halloween. Children go in costume from house to house, asking for treats such as sweets or sometimes money, with the question, “Trick or treat?”

The word “trick” refers to a threat to do mischief on the home owners or their property if no treat is given.  Have you ever played a trick on anyone?
