The King’s Speech Movie

I watched this film today. It was amazing. I must confess there were two reasons I decided to see it, 1. Colin Firth and 2. The amount of BAFTAS it received.

I know most of you will know what it was about so I wont go into it. What I thought was amazing was that Guy Pearce who starred in "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" and before that "Neighbours." His English accent was pretty good. Odd that he played the King's elder brother as I understand it he is quite afew years younger in real life.

If you are umming and arghing about going to see this film don't. It is one of the best I have ever seen. We went for a pizza beforehand - OH paid to celebrate new job - same employer, 6k payrise (life changing this is to us) and I had a 2 for 1 main meal voucher saved us £10.99. Saved half each and had them for dinner tonight.

I have been to the cinema three times this year and paid for the tickets just the once.
