I saw The Secret of Kells a couple of weeks ago, over at my mom’s. She absolutely insisted that it was worth my time, and it was; my only quibble is that the message of ‘the only way to deal with a Viking horde is to run away’ would come as a bit of a surprise to, say, Brian Boru*.
And so, farewell to Trainspotting. Which was a very good, yet very messed up, film.
*Unless, of course, you believe the scurrilous arguments to the contrary – ones made no doubt a vicious cabal of English and Scandinavian spalpeens jealous of Boru and his way of killing any random screaming Viking that himself happened to see hove into view – but I’m sure that none of you would be along of shaming yourself by repeating such obvious lies.
