Avengers Age of Ultron is only a few days away now and already I’m upset that I can’t see the movie hours before its official release date. I unfortunately have to work early the next morning, and by the time the film ends, I’d only have about 5 hours until I have to wake up. Add in the fact I’d be buzzing from seeing Avengers, I would probably only get about 3 hours of sleep. Not even I can handle that.
The reason for this blog update though wasn’t to talk about my lack of sleep, or the Avengers, but instead my love of going to the cinemas. You see, I’m a big fan of spending lots of money to watch a movie surrounded by strangers in a dark room where people are talking and laughing.
Most people would cringe at the thought, but I love it.

George who? During the filming of You Only Live Twice, Sean Connery announced his retirement from the role of British Secret Service Agent, James Bond 007. He had had enough of the role and wanted to do other projects. So as pre-production began on On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the call was put out. Hundreds, if not thousands, auctioned for the lead role and if wasn’t until an Australian model by the name of George Lazenby, walked through the door, that the producers found their man.
