You Might Be A Poldark Fan If

You might be Poldark fan if…

  • You have seen the original series or you have read the books.
  • You say “smouldark” instead of Poldark.
  • If you didn’t know who Aidan Turner was before, you know who he is now.
  • You’ve watched this video far too many times.

 

  • You’ve also seen this video far too many times.

  • Cornwall has been added to your places to visit in the UK.
  • As a female, you are envious of Elizabeth’s, Verity’s and Demelza’s (post street urchin) clothes.
  • You wanted to reach into the screen and smack Ruth for her nasty comments.
  • Ross Poldark stands with Mr. Darcy, Mr. Rochester and Mr. Thornton as British literary leading men that bring out the inner fifteen year old in you.
  • Sunday at 9, you are home, your television is tuned to PBS.
  • And finally, you are ready for season two (even if you are in the US and only halfway through season one).

The Critics Were Wrong (Maybe)- Anaconda 1997

Ever since the garden of Eden, snakes have both terrified and captured the interest of human beings.

The 1997 movie, Anaconda, is about a team adventurous enough (or foolish, depending on your opinion) to find and capture the world’s largest and deadliest snake: the Anaconda.

Led by Paul Serone (Jon Voight), the team includes Terri Flores (Jennifer Lopez) and Danny Rich (Ice Cube).

Can the team find the snake and take it into captivity or will nature win out, as she often does?

Were the critics wrong? If your afraid of snakes,  then yes. But if your not afraid of snakes and your laughing because the story is ludicrous and the special effects are shoddy, then no.

Do I recommend this film? No.
