It was a double feature movie night at the Batthaim last night, and as is my wont, when we double up, we swap the mixed movie quotes between the two. So: Christopher Nolan’s drifting-into-being-forgotten stone-cold masterpiece Memento, and the always unforgettable The Rocky Horror Picture Show, combined…
There’s something risky about designing a Lego set around a subject in which curves are the predominant architectural feature. For all its adaptability, and the cornucopia of new pieces that have arrived in recent years, Lego is still, essentially, a blocky product. Many pieces might be curved, but even they still give a predominantly rigid effect: sinuousness and curvaceousness are not in the brief.
So what happens when Lego decides to make sets involving animals? And what happens when the company decides to use the same part to make three?
Surely, madness abounds.

Me to Luscious and Lord 15: It’s Mother’s Day, and we will watch whatever Mum wants to watch because it’s her special day and we love her and she can choose whatever she wants.

Here’s my last gallery of movie images based on the Facebook meme that Stephen Dedman tagged me into: following on from forays into Speculative Fiction, Animation, the pre-1945 era, and Comedy, are ten (thirteen) modern — ie: post war — movies that have made an impact upon me — that don’t necessarily fit into any of the other categories.

Three times already, as per a recent Facebook meme, I’ve posted ten (thirteen) movies that have had an impact upon me, in the realms of Speculative Fiction, Animated, and Pre-1945 fillums.
It’s my second-last category today: comedies!

As previously discussed, I’m throwing up five lots of ten (thirteen) images from movies that have impacted me, as yet another in our ongoing line of Covid-gathers-our-personal-information distractomemage.
Today, I’m hitting up pre-war fillums, from the golden age of talkies, shee, before the big one, shee? Nyaaaah.
Well, before the end of the big one: this is my list of films up to 1945.
Oh, and I should point out, as I haven’t already, that these aren’t necessarily the best movies from each category, or even, necessarily, my favourite; just the ones that had an impact. Anecdotes on request 😉

As explained yesterday, I’m posting ten* images from movies that have made an impact on me, per day, for the next few days, as part of yet another keep-me-busy-during-Covid memefest.
Today it’s animated movies.
