Don't go to the cinema very often - but went last night. We were going to watch The Kite Runner', but we were not in the mood to be emotionally disturbed, so at the last minute we watched 'The Bank Job' instead. I just can't handle sad films. I remember feeling tearful when I thought Baloo was dead in Jungle Book!
But what really struck me last night was the scale of BBC advertising. The first advert up (and it must have been a good 5 minutes worth) was for the Chris Moyles Show on BBC radio. And up next was an extended advert was for BBC 1. After the best part of 10 minutes of straight advertising of the BBC, I was starting to feel a bit scratchy, just thinking about how much of my licence fee it was consuming. Now I've started to think about it, I'm not sure that I approve of the dominant player in the market using licence payer's money to increase that dominance. Anyway, it was an amusing little film. The Kite Runner will have to be read.
