    Road - BBC 2 NI

    The story of the Dunlops. I am not a massive sports fan of any type but living in Northern Ireland everyone knows the name Dunlop, Joey and Robert are legends of road motorcycle racing and Robert's sons William and Michael who have taken up the baton in recent years.

    A story of triumph over disaster and how eventually ones luck and skill run out. Like the F1 film Rush this story illuminates the drive and passion of sports men who pushed the envelop of what was technically possible and what was humanly possible. Uplifting but also a sad story.


    Regards Neil

    Predator 2 - Sky 1 HD

    Much prefer this to the first film, even though in places its ridiculous what Danny Glover does physically.

    Love the scene at the end where we see a trophy cabinet on board the Predator spaceship full of skulls and middle, pride of place a skull of an Alien.

    Right now TCM HD - The Buccaneer

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051436/

    My first time seeing this American War of Independence film, set in and around New Orleans. 1812 and the British are about to attack New Orleans, only the pirate Jean Lafitte and his fleet of pirate ships stands between the Americans success or defeat.

    Ironically after being betrayed by the Americans, Lafitte and his men after being pardoned and released from jail supply Andrew Jackson's men and irregulars weapons, powder and flints to defeat the British on land not at sea.

    Unusual seeing Yul Brenner with hair but he carries the role of Lafitte of well.

    John Carter

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Carter_%28film%29

    I love this film, the look of it, the action, the majesty. I know this didn't do that well at the cinema - understatement it bombed - but I think its a good re imagining of ERBs John Cater of Mars. Based on the Princess of Mars book it was hoped this might be the beginning of a series to rival Star Wars but it didn't happen. I really don't know why it has everything going for it and yet nope.

    I loved Marvel comics comic adaptation, and discovered the books in my early teens, so I was delighted when this came out.

    Anyway ERBs estate have taken the rights back and hope to revisit this, so there may be a second film.

    Ah! New Year's Eve. Another pointless day where I accomplish nothing.

    I was going to watch a film but there's nothing on that grabs me so I'll be settling for a PBS documentary about the Atlantic Wall, washed down with a couple of cans of Guinness.

    Happy 2015 y'all

    I've had two weeks of accomplishing nothing. I've got that horrible bug going around that lasts ages. I'm mobile but not into doing much. (daughter & missus have it too)

    Happy New Year (I suppose).
