If we just wiggle our hands, anything is possible.
We were both grumpy today. And how. The seethe was palpable in the air, and we did our best to harness it for good radio comedy. Up on review this week were the "Stop calling me, Harry Potter" Dan Radcliffe-helmed Woman in Black by Hammer Horror(!) and the young super hero archetypal angstgasm chronicle Chronicle, which started strong and fizzled in the second half due to the prescribed arc the writers were determined the film follow. Shame, but it was a good attempt at tapping into the comic book mythologies we're already so used to. As for Woman in Black, the Boom Operator was marginally-impressed with it as a chiller. I've been a huge fan of the book/stage play/1989 BBC film since I was a wee scared kiddie, so I'll probably catch this before too long.
We heard music from the following:
127 Hours - A. R. Rahman
28 Days Later - John Murphy
Ladyhawke - The Alan Parsons Project
Hawk the Slayer - Harry Robertson
Blue Velvet - Angelo Badalamenti
