K is for Killing Me Softly

 I was explaining to 'himself' all about this A-Z blog challenge and asked him for suggestions for K and this is what he came up with. I think he may have been trying to be ironic...

However, before I could dwell on this for too long, I was suddenly reminded, in a roundabout way, that yesterdays's post was supposed to be J for Jack - as in the Giant Slayer, he of the beanstalk.

You see, as soon as I heard him utter those words, then I felt obliged to sing the song, which in turn got me thinking about the film About a Boy, when the young Marcus faces humiliation by the whole school yet still sings it for his mother.

Then I remembered that little Marcus with the bad haircut and the uncool attitude grew up to become a rather handsome young man called Jack who climbs up beanstalks to rescue a princess. Jack the Giant Slayer is rather a cracking tale of adventure, cooking and daring do. I strongly recommend it. I was going to share the trailer, but frankly it's a bit of a spoiler, so just go and see the movie and enjoy the surprises.


  1. I liked this film, one of the few in which Grant isn't portraying a foppish idiot.

  2. Oh, Hugh.....made some great movies!


Thank you for your comments - I always love to hear what you think :)
