good vibrations; troll hunter

Having the whole day to myself yesterday, I decided against going out in the end and did stuff at home. Said stuff included watching two films I'd recorded on the digibox.

In the afternoon I watched Good Vibrations, about the Belfast record shop and punk label, which I enjoyed a lot, but found sadder than I'd expected. In the evening I watched Troll Hunter, a Norwegian 'found footage' film about a troll hunter, which I also enjoyed a lot; it was a nice idea, that trolls actually existed but the Norwegian government kept it quiet and dealt with it in secret; 'found footage' can get a bit wearisome, and doesn't always obey its own premise, but this did okay.
