We've just watched Eurovision on the strength of the BBC review. Good fun :)

My son has a habit of digging up kiddie flicks we watched together when he was small and sending them to us in the belief that we'll enjoy them now that he's pushing 50.  He then checks up a week later to make sure we've watched them.  He's quite intelligent otherwise, and a decent mathematician with it (maybe that explains it).

Anyway, this time it was a remake of Krabat, a rather nasty tale of sorcery set in eastern Germany.  To be fair, while I wouldn't have sought it out it wasn't bad, although the cartoon version we saw in the 70s was a good effort too.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

We do enjoy watching films we used to watch with our (now very adult) children. Happily, we now have a grandson who will soon want to watch that kind of thing, so we'll have an excuse.

Not films, but I loved watching Bagpuss and Ivor the Engine with my kids.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979).
Entertaining and undemanding enough for my tastes. Interesting to see what special effects they could do (big stationary stuff works) as opposed to things that look amusingly clunky now (anything moving). Much more slow-moving than a 21st Century equivalent would be, though I didn't mind that, and the Wikipedia article seems to suggest that it was criticised for that at the time.

Pure coincidence, but in the last few days we've watched the two Mesrine films, then last night Highwaymen on Netflux.  MrsT remarked that the police who more or less murdered Mesrine must have been inspired by the end of Bonnie & Clyde.
