Weekend Roundup: Reviews of ‘Ant-Man’ & ‘Cartel Land’ documentary

Boy it's quite a sweltering Summer weekend, I practically lived in my shorts & rompers these days. I love it when you found stuff in one of your old wallets, it's like getting an unexpected gift.

That also means we lost one hour this weekend 😦 Downright addicted to Downton Abbey I've only managed to see one movie this weekend, as I've been catching up on Downton Abbey. I've even …

Musings on Downton Abbey – seven things that got me hooked on the show

Well, two years after this show premiered on PBS in January 2011, and after the urging of several friends, I finally saw my first episode of Downton Abbey. Being an anglophile AND a fan of period dramas, this show has the ingredients of the kind of show I'd be into, and I'm glad to report …
