I went to see this tonight:

And frankly, it's a killer. It's smart, catches the book head on, the acting is wonderful and it will make you cry. Even if you have a heart made of granite. By a very long stretch, A Monster Calls is the best movie I've seen in years. Go see it.

Then I came home and wasn't in the mood for anything much aside from just sitting around watching TV, so I watched Tom Hardy's new show, Taboo - and damn, if that isn't a real piece of work too. Catch up with it online somewhere, it looks like it will burn long and bright.
