First day of last weekend. Refuse to pack just yet - too radical. Lots of films out this week but refuse to watch Shaft remake or Dancer in the Dark. Priorities y’know. Watched The Cell instead. Most disturbing film since Alien 3 I think. Most definitely a cult in the making. Parents have not phoned - unlike them. Am dreading Indian trips to the cinema. US films are two to three months behind and the alternatives are chipmunk-voiced musicals with cardigan-wearing Indian leads all on the tubby side.

Still, looks like Great Britain has won its first Olympic gold medal on the first day though, so all is not doom and gloom.
