Daily Writing Journal, : Wednesday Film, Movie 0r Boxset Night: Alita: Battle Angel at Camden Parkway Odeon


Off the cinema

I decided to the got the cinema (movie theatre)  instead of watching my planned box set of Breaking Bad series 1. So I looked at what was happening around and decided on a trip to town and Alita - Battle Angel since it sounded neutral enough. 

Ended up at Camden Parkway, at one point it had one of the biggest screens in London before it become a multiplex Odeon - I think back in the day it was ABC but don't quote me on that.


Got my ticket which cost £7.00 which is relative cheap for town, as you can see it's the date of my blog and I decided on the first showing.


Then up the stairs. It is a nice cinema though fraying around edges probably because everyone is staying at home and glued to Netflix or Amazon Prime. In the cinema there was me and another person who liked a student.





About Alita: Battle Angel

Alita, a cyborg, is found by a cyborg-surgeon who give her body parts. She ends up being some super warrior from a different age.  The film started off very slow but quickly picked up pace after a while. The fight scenes were exceptional and engaging. I really enjoyed it. There is high bodycount of the baddies, and a love story entwined. 

It has a lot of story telling gaps and a few slow bits but overall was good fun. However it is set up for sequels, like it is a  franchise films, so this is really part one. However it is a great film to watch if you don't want to think too much and want to be entertained. 

There isn't much of a story line to say without spoiling it, and really there is more action than story.

Overall, I enjoyed it so it was worth my lunchtime to venture to into town.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
