Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Kingsmen - The Secret Service

Kingsmen - The Secret Service

Anyone who even knows me only a little would tell you that this film was going to be a winner for me from the get-go.  British, Secret Service, Comic-Book heroes, Colin Firth and Mark Strong?!  You'd have to be CRAZY not to love this.

And of course I totally did.  It was good fun.  Samuel L. Jackson was weird with an affected lisp that he did so perfectly I had to give the guy props.  His whole demeanor was awkward and I think that was entirely the point.  I really was charmed by the young actor (Taron Egerton) who played the Chav who got recruited.  Who doesn't love an underdog?  But he actually could carry the film - for someone I'd never seen before that was impressive.  He had charisma that filled the screen - he's one to watch, for sure.

Pure entertainment!
