A tale of two movies

From lack of anything better to do I ended up watching Beverly Hills Cop 2 the other night. It had been some time since I’d viewed the adventures of Axel Foley & co and I really enjoyed it. There’s something so cool about the 80‘s immersion of that film – I always find myself looking out for tell tale 80’s crapola in the background! And I love LA too – it’s over a year now since my holiday there and I’m really hankering for another visit. If only it didn’t cost so damn much, I’d go again in an instant.

Sticking with the movie theme, I also caught a preview of Spider-Man, which is firmly planted in the 21st century. I enjoyed it, but I cant say it left me feeling upbeat. It is a good adaptation of the comic books I was so fond of when I was little, though… I’m almost tempted to climb about the outside of the house again in the same way that brought many a stern word from my mum.
