What a night at the theatre...well, afternoon, anyway. Was at a film this afternoon that has me rethinking my favourite set of films. In fact, as I write this, I have my account on IMDB open and looking at my ratings. So this week, I proudly give you six film selections...two are actually a series of films, so technically we are talking ten films in total...that I have rated 10 on IMDB.

Good morning Ladies and Bruces... Funny...I type that and the dog bolts from my room like I'm a vet with a really big needle...oh well...guess my feet will be cold for a few minutes. Day one of vacation was a disappointment. Went to the pub which was too busy...the TV screens were too small (almost Freudian slip as I initially typed 'TV screws')...and there was no bar maid to flirt with. I like the bar dude there, but I just don't swing that way. So, onto day two which...after that disappointment, I decided to brighten my mood this morning by watching a few Youtube excerpts from Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl...my Facebook Bruces will shortly be subjected to a few of those vids...gods save you all.
