And The Job Hunt Continues…

on 31 March, 2014

Not much has gone on over the past week… just the usual job hunting and crafting and movie watching. Actually stumbled onto the BBC series “Luther”, starring Idris Elba and watched the two seasons back-to-back. I am using the term “seasons” loosely, as there were only 6 episodes in the first season and only 4 in the second. It was more like a continuous stream, as the characters were pretty consistent and the pervading theme ran through it all. I had some issues about how a real detective might actually work and they make enough of an argument that Luther was a bit of a rogue cop, but the fact that he had an affinity for a young woman who murdered her parents (and her dog) and got away scot free, was a bit too much to swallow.

I will, however, add the caveat that my television world consists mainly of Netflix and HBOGO right now.

Of note, however, is the fact that although I have seen the movie before, it wasn’t until re-viewing it last night with The Kid, that I realized that the fine young actor in “The Empire of the Sun” was, in fact, Christian Bale.

Nor have I cared much for of his film work, with the notable exception of “The Machinist”… which while superb, was extremely hard to watch. I understand that he actually lost all the weight during the filming, which has to be hard on his body, but much appreciated that he put the dedication into his craft.

Knowing that this post is especially short and lacking in content, it is Monday and I haven’t had my morning dose of caffeine (thank you Diet Coke).
