Total Recall

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Outing tonight to see the remake of Total Recall.  It’s a remake of the 1990 original: there are many familiar elements but mixed up in new ways while some others (like Mars) haven’t made it.

Turner Monet Twomly: Later Paintings

Sunday, August 5th, 2012

  Turner Monet Twomly: Later Paintings at Tate Liverpool is an intriguing mix of the late works work of three artists born in three different centuries.  The works are grouped thematically and each artist’s works are intermingled with each other.  There are some fine pieces by all three artists and if (like me) you don’t […]
