Day 2 of Amazing 2014

The film Gravity was amazing. The cinematography was outstanding. The way that the film portrayed zero gravity was so realistic. Interviews with astronauts say that it was thrilling to see what they do shown realistically. The 3D adds to the film rather than is there as a gimmick and the sight of the incoming debris was remarkable. The plot stretched realism at times but overall it is truly worth seeing at the cinema.

Amazing start to 2014 continues.

On a further note the trailers at the time of year are full of Oscar hopefuls. The four they showed were The Railway Man, 12 Years a Slave, Long Walk to Freedom and American Hustle starring Colin Firth, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Idris Elba and Christian Bale respectively. These gentleman were born in Hampshire, Forest Gate, Hackney and Haverfordwest.

Add to this that 3 of the last 6 winners of an Best Actor, 2 of the last 6 winners of Best Actress, 1 of the last three Best Supporting Actor and 1 of the last 6 Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars have been British and you can see the pattern.

The focus of Gove on a narrow academic curriculum overlooks the value of the cultural economy to the UK.
