I shall inform Mrs Ingo that my made up internet friend says we need to watch the other 2 parts! I'll report back later this week.

I didn't go, or listen and was out walking at the time and did not check my phone, nor did any of my family go that I'm aware of and I don't think any of my friends went either. I haven't read any reports nor watched any highlights but I'm really annoyed. The whole thing stinks. The wages these clowns are on and they perform like that. I've got a good mind to write to Moscow and complain to the good people at The State Circus, but of course my letter won't get there because the Royal Mail is a c*nt institution ran and operated by c*nts.

It downplays the awfulness of Megson to claim that Karanka is similar. Under Megson, we deliberately made the pitch harder to play on and every touch in our half was to launch the ball as far away as possible. Karanka is functional and the goalkeeper is kicking long more often but it's nothing like Megson (it's closer to Freedman or Davies, if you want a Forest comparison).

We've watched the first one, not completely sold at the moment despite the popularity of "Micky" in the Ingo household for his sterling work in Hustle.


I liked that the usual story would be fighting for justice from the murderer, but the fact he's going for the doctor makes a change. Stick with it. There's a couple of moments in the final part where you just have to go with the plot but worth it.

Taking the divarette to this, it'll be her first game. (Taking advantage of kids for a quid). Looks like if I didn't want her to get into football, this will be the match to do it.

We've watched 'Trauma' this week. It's good. A different take on a often told story.

Sooo caught up on a couple of films.  One on the plane (after they fixed their f*cked up wi-fi service) and I watched the best of the newer Planet of the Apes films (War for the planet of the apes) and after the miss-step of the second one (the first one was ace) they got this one right.  Very very good and the actors playing the apes were tremendous.  How this film isn't nominated for special effects awards is beyond me because it is amazing.  What is it to be human?  That was the question posed and it described the current political societal climate.  We are all scared little animals who lash out if we feel threatened.  Loved the film.  3000 hairy Triceratops.   


War for the planet of the apes is Oscar and BAFTA nominated for VFX. Google tells me that special effects are in production, visual effects post-production, so that sounds about right.

Good use of the word IMO as Dunkirk is a classic.

I haven't seen Dunkirk, but TBH war movies aren't really my thing.
