We had our latest movie night which was Zombie Night. We gathered a few friends round for food and films, picking out Zombeavers and Wyrmwood. Zombeavers was terrible, and not really in that so-terrible-it's-good kind of way... Wyrmwood was more serious than expected and was pretty good, if unusual and strange!
We also went over to another couple's house for a catch up and a take-away meal. We watched Devil's Knot with them - we'd already seen the documentary about this and it's really interesting but also worrying how the police acted and ended up sending innocent teenagers to prison.
We also went to see Absolutely Anything with a couple of friends at the cinema. I'm a big fan of Simon Pegg, so was really looking forward to it. The best role, of course, was Dennis the dog, voiced by the late and great Robin Williams! I really enjoyed the film, even though I think they could've taken it a little further. Also suffered hair envy from the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale.
DVDs we watched last month included, The Theory Of Everything, which was extremely well done - Eddie Redmayne was amazing and portrayed the role of Stephen Hawking brilliantly and thoughtfully. Wild had been on our watch list for a while, and I have to say I really enjoyed the story! It was a very different role for Reese Witherspoon and she nailed it.
We also finished watching the latest season of Trollied which is really fun to watch, if a little overly silly at times!
My August's favourites are as follows:
Oh, my pretty, Pretty Little Liars, how I shall miss you! I marathon watched it and got up-to-date last month. I loved it! I hear there will be a season set five years in the future? Exciting!
What did you get up to in August?
