I can say with all confidence that out of my illustrious 13 year festival career, Glastonbury 2010 was by far the best.
Too many good bits to list in my pezzy blog, epic in every way.
Perhaps i'll do a more comprehensive review once the post-festival blues have passed....

This is a great film; funny, surreal, shocking, insightful and thought provoking. The lead, Omar is fantastic his determination, intelligence and charisma make him a very powerful influencer of his inept band of brothers - that is what makes him (and other like-minded Mujaheddin) so deadly.
The film is packed with unmistakable Morris dialogue which is so absurdly beautiful at times it just loops in your head all day long (the title of this blog post being an example). Everyone must see this film.
Also - Has Paddy Considine ever been in a bad film? What a hero.

Aside from the film which I really enjoyed, this was the first film i went to see at the new Vue at Westfield shopping centre in Sheperds Bush. At this moment in time I'm still in a state of shock, it was by far the greatest cinema i've ever been to, this is the future. Lets forget for a mo the crystal clear lenticular projection screens and razor sharp digital image; or that my £9 VIP seat was vibrating from the LFE and stunning digital sound. forgotten all that? ok, I paid £9 for all this - the local Hammersmith fire trap / flea pit charges the same! Other cinema chains are going to have to up there game, and in the mean time, I have a new default cinema.
The next step is to test out the 'Scene' screens which apparently up the luxury ante even more (the mind boggles), for an extra couple of pounds you have access to a private bar, concierge service, reclining seats and pretty much a gauranteed chav free cinema experience. I'll report back as soon as i have tested. Can't wait.
