Two flights five movie reviews

December 29th, 2013

Recently I did 2 long haul flights and watched 5 movies here is my short review of them:

  • Elysium (6.5 out of 10) Prime example of a movie where the trailer sets very high expectations for a movie which is just so so. The movie is okay and worth watching but in my view the trailer is better than the movie.
  • Kick-Ass 2 (4.5 out of 10) Terry sequel. I mean the first one was okay this one is just bad. The Story is rubbish the whole movie is just not worth your time. Don’t watch.
  • We’re the Millers (7 out of 10) Average to good comedy movie. The trailer was good and the movie delivered a worth watch comedy.
  • 2 Guns (7 out of 10) Another movie worth watching, it is a big long but Denzel and Mark make it worth watching. There is action and an intriguing and not obvious from the beginning story.
  • The Wolverine (6.5 out of 10) Average action movie, story is okay, action is okay but nothing stands out in this movie

 

 

Saving commute money with barclays cycle hire scheme TfL

August 3rd, 2010

It feels like I start with all post promising to post more

This time I’m writing about how I am saving a bundle every way by commuting to work with the barclays cycle hire scheme rather then Bus/Tube.

I bought a bike about a year ago, cheap a bit broken from www.gumtree.com thinking I got a bargain, just need to fix something here and there. Truth was I have never been bothered and therefore never cycled into work or anywhere for that matter.

Along came this scheme from TfL sponsored by Barclay to hire a bicycle just around the corner from me and drop it near work. The benefits is I don’t have to maintain the bike, I don’t have to worry about anything apart from paying and driving it. The downside is I need to go somewhere to find it, there might or might not be available.

So let’s get down to numbers. How much do I spend a year travelling to and from work yearly.
