The Week in Entertainment

DVD: Blithe Spirit, from the "David Lean directs Noel Coward" set. A Touch of Cloth, a very funny British takedown of cop shows - John Hannah as the weary detective with a troubled past and Suranne Jones as his new, ambitious sergeant.

TV: The Futurama/Simpsons crossover, which was funny. Things to Come, still a good movie even if severely overtaken by events. A good print (at last!) and uncut. Big Trouble in Little China - I love this movie! The Douglas Fairbanks silent version of A Thief of Baghdad.

Read: The last of the Libby Serjeants ... and on to something new! First, Undeniable by Bill Nye, engaging (perhaps a tiny bit too much so) but really aimed at people who know less than I do. Good Christmas present material, though. Then A Bicycle Built For Murder, set in a small English village in WWII. Not bad, but I am tired of women falling for men the very first time they see them and spending the whole book obsessing over them. So I won't be reading any more of this series. I did enjoy Under an English Sky, and also the first two Julian Kestrel books.

Big Trouble is one of my favorite movies, too. It's one of those that holds up to multiple viewings, at least for me.

I've lost track of how many times I've seen it. It's just about perfect.
