Films and stuff

Above is Jake Abel, playing Ian O'Shea in The Host, which we saw at the cinema today.  I thought he bore more than a passing resemblance to a young Kevin Bacon, when KB was in the science fiction movie called "Tremors" - admittedly quite a few years ago!!

This is Kevin Bacon in a still from Tremors.

We thought that the film was quite good, but there was quite a lot of the book which wasn't there, which we felt was a shame.  Anyway, at 125 minutes, perhaps the powers that be thought it was long enough.  We enjoyed it, anyway, and it made a change.

We were at the gym this morning to get it all set up for the holiday club starting tomorrow morning, and we called in to see my dad on the way home from the cinema so we have had quite a busy day.  I rang the hospital tonight and they say that the FH has had a "settled" kind of day...
