My apologies for being a bit AWOL but I have had a horrible cold and so I was holed up in my flat feeling very sorry for myself. I am dosed up to my eyeballs on Vitamin C and am almost completely back on form. A lovely friend who I work with took me to starbuck for a restorative coffee too which I never usually drink so I am a bit buzzed too…caffeine tends to have a major affect on me!
So now for an update on life with me…on Saturday Bond cashed in his ‘Minions’ credit and booked us tickets to go and see Mission Impossible. I have to admit that I was not remotely excited about seeing it as I really don’t enjoy these shoot ’em up movies – hence the trade for minions!
We had a quick bite to eat at the counter first, I am worryingly addicted to their veggie burgers! Then armed with a mango slushy we headed in to see Tom Cruise do his thing…
Honestly it was brilliant – I had to admit to Bond that he still had ‘minion’ credit because I really thoroughly enjoyed the film. Tom is still in amazing shape and did some very impressive stunts – I can’t believe he is 53!!! Simon Pegg was as funny as ever but also managed to pull of the serious side of the movie too. I found him far more believable than I would have expected.
We both enjoyed the footage of London – suitably grey and damp looking as opposed to a lot of Hollywood films that seem to show a London I have never seen before.
If you like the Mission Impossible franchise then this is a great addition. If you have never seen one then do try this – it’s really very good and enjoyable! I was really glad we decided to go for it because it was fully booked for most of the weekend and now I am the envy of my boss as he still hasn’t managed to see it!
Now I will have to re-watch the one in Dubai while actually concentrating properly, from what I recall though Tom Cruise hanging off the Burj Khalifa is quite something…Also if you are ever in Dubai then you can go to the top of said tower and pose with a green screen and get shots of yourself posing like Mr Cruise!
