I tried to go to the cinema to see Paul last night. It was sold out, even though we arrived really early. Well, not sold our, but they didn't have two seats together, which was a bit rubbish. I would curse Orange Wednesdays, but since we were using that too, I can't really. So we had a choice between waiting around for an hour and a half for the next showing, or going to see True Grit instead. We went to see True Grit.

I don't like westerns. I'm not sure why, it's like I have some kind of mental block about them, I just don't like them or anything associated with them. Even the episode of Star Trek TOS, Spectre of the Gun, didn't like it one bit. Even the episode of Red Dwarf, Gunmen of the Apocalypse, so many people rate it as their favourite episode, to me it was always a bit meh. To be fair, I now like it a lot more than I did, but I've not willingly watched a western since my dad talked me into watching The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. Wow, that was boring.

So yeah, I didn't have high hopes for my enjoyment of the film, even though I had heard a lot of good things about it. Amazingly, I quite enjoyed it. Which, given my history, speaks volumes. I probably won't ever watch it again though, but it's worth a watch once. There are bits, without giving away spoilers) that I didn't like. The end, for example, I didn't see the point in including that, and some of the unfunny bits that everyone seemed to be laughing at like they were watching a comedy.

It has its moments, some good, some not so good. I wish we could've seen Paul instead. We're going next Wednesday instead.

I seem to have been to the cinema so much recently.

Oh, and I saw a poster saying Despicable Me is out on DVD on Monday! **is excited**
