A new-to-me Richard Armitage character has just joined the ranks of my all-time favourites. And this character is not seen, but only heard! In the words of his boast asserting his warrior status, he is: Uhtred of Bebbanburg... The man who killed Ubba Lothbrokson by the sea... The man who spilled Svein of the White … Continue reading Rich’s of the Past: The Lords of the North Audiobook
Finally, I was able to watch the Season 2 premiere of Berlin Station which aired in Canada on Monday. It is so frustrating to once again be two shows behind the US, in large part because I'd love to take part in the on-line discussion when it's happening! Even avoiding the posts marked with "spoilers", … Continue reading Two Shows Behind… Berlin Station
Success! After 6 weeks and 6 emails sent to Digital Theatre, my purchases have finally been restored! I now have a 10-year rental of: The Interview and also The Crucible It's a good day.
It seems to be getting harder and harder to find something that both my husband and I want to watch. His taste is more towards superheroes, and mine veers more towards... well... Richard Armitage! But sometimes we have a meeting of the minds. (Movie stills from IMDb) Handsome Devil (2016): (On Video on Demand) I'd … Continue reading What I’ve Been Watching
The Canadian release of Pilgrimage has finally come, albeit on iTunes. I found out about the September 5 release date only through a tweet by Get Reel Movies , who recently interviewed Richard Armitage about the movie. To me, it shows just such a total lack of interest in promoting the film that the Canadian distributor, Search … Continue reading Finally Seeing “Pilgrimage” (2017)
As designed, Digital Theatre's new service plan did not include honouring any purchases, including The Crucible and Exclusive Interview with Richard Armitage. Now, apparently, they plan to grant "long-term rentals" to us, but so far it has been impossible to get any response to individual email requests. Perry has come up with an idea to get them to … Continue reading #Armitage fans – Burned by @DigitalTheatre’s Crucible?How to Help — Armitage Agonistes
It's still August 22 in Vancouver, as the birthdays of both a family member and an actor continue. Happy Birthday to both! And many happy returns! Yesterday's total eclipse put me in mind of Season 3, Episode 1 of Robin Hood. This is the moment when Sir Guy sees the total eclipse of the sun... and then … Continue reading Sir Guy Sees the Total Eclipse
I know many of you are thinking about Richard Armitage's birthday coming up on August 22. In my household, however, we are celebrating two other birthday's this week! My husband's birthday was this weekend and, at his request, I cooked chili for dinner and we finished off with his favourite dessert, vanilla ice cream with … Continue reading August Birthdays
Before we get distracted by August birthdays (I have two in my family), I'd really like to share some pics of the cool stuff I got for my birthday a while back. First, some gifts to support my movie habit -- a Cineplex gift card and the extended edition of The Hobbit movies (which I … Continue reading My Birthday Loot
