i got spoiled with

a bubble bath & flowers.

wayne played with his remote control tank.

saw this lovely pink flower on our walk around wimbledon.

[left] saw these old cars on the street.  (i only noticed a few houses down the road that these cars are going to be used on a film set.  i’m not sure what they were filming though.)

[right] were on the new metropolitan line trains.  i actually like them, they look more spacious and there’s no doors between the individual compartments anymore.  now you can see straight through the train.

we also went to see rise of the planet of the apes.  we thought it was excellent!

i loved the fact that this wasn’t a remake of the original movies but kind of like a prequel of the first movie.  andy serkis as caesar was brilliant.  he made caesar by far the best animated character in the history of cinema. his facial expressions tell it all! you feel his rage, his fear, and his child like innocence through his wonderfully animated eyes. not only is the C.G.I. good, but the character is written very well in general.  you will go through all of those emotions yourself as you witness his journey. all I can say is that (if i had a dog or even a pet) i’ll try to walk it without a leash as much as possible. through the film, you will understand what caesar is feeling and why. the invisible character of the film is humanity itself, and at times, feels like a study of human nature.  it is how cruel humans can be on the one side and on the other how kind they can also be.  this movie will have you in tears at one stage and then angry on the other end.  the CGI in this was so good that i had to remind myself that these apes aren’t real.  so go and see the movie – it was fantastic!

hope you all are having a great week so far!!
