Newsletter and jokes: 12 October 2018



Hi all

It's pretty much adult fare this week, with one release for the teens, and
nothing new for the kiddies.

First up is what is probably the last instalment of the Halloween series,
with Jamie Curtis reprising her role from the first film all those years
ago. Critical ratings are above average so it should be good. The film, and
Curtis, have attracted some negative coverage in the US because she proves
quite handy with firearms in the film, but in real life is an anti-gun 
campaigner.

Sticking with adult action, have the remake of Papillon, bringing a new 
look for modern audiences. The other other main-stream release is The 
Titan, which is sci-fi and seems to have been unreleased in the US, hence
reviews are scarce.

Rounding out the Hollowood offerings is gritty urban drama The Hate U Give,
which is highly rated, and doing very well on a per-screen basis in limited
release in the USA. As previously mentioned, I think we may see this title
getting some glow during awards season.

The subcontinent has four offerings this week, two each Hindi and Tamil,
ranging from comedy through drama to crime action.

And then last but not least, the local industry is releasing Kanarie, about
the old SADF choir during the bush war. The film has already picked up 
several awards, and hopefully, given the gay angle, will be spared the 
problems that The Wound had.

On the previews side, there are previews on Sunday for The Little Vampire,
and on Thursday for Peppermint, both only at selected cinemas. See the 
previews page and remember to book.

Enjoy :-)

A male colleage was recently showing off at work about how attractive he 
was to the opposite sex.
He said, "You take away the looks, money, intelligence, charm and success 
and, really, there's no difference between me and Brad Pitt!"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

We had a great au pair for about a year but then she left and my wife was 
really upset. 
"I don't understand," she moaned, 
"We treated her like one of the family."
Our eldest son, Robbie overheard her and quickly retorted "Yes, and that's 
exactly why she left!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

My grandfather, 74, who used to be quite sporty was asked by friends if he 
wanted to run in a charity marathon. 
"I haven't run in years" he told them. "I get out of breath just walking up
the stairs". 
They told him it was a pity as it was a marathon for mostly handicapped
people. 
Grandad thought for a moment and then said, "Wait a minute. I could win 
this... !"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was playing snap with my four-year-old grandson, Lucas, and 
I kept winning. I felt sure that he was letting me win. 

I asked him if he was and he confessed. So I asked why he had 
been letting me win all the time. 
"Because you're very old, Grandma," came his reply.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Like all teenage boys, my grandson is constantly hungry. 
I went to the refrigerator to find something he might like.
After poking around a bit and moving the milk and juice cartons, 
I spotted a bowl of leftover chilli and called out to him excitedly. 
He came running into the kitchen.
"Look! I found some chilli!" I said to him, anticipating his glee. 
Struggling to be polite he replied, "If you're that surprised, I'm not 
really sure that I want it!"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

While shopping recently, I overheard a gentleman talking to one of the shop
assistants.
“Do you have a casserole?” 
The assistant looked a little puzzled for a moment before taking him over 
to the casserole dishes.
“Well, one of those isn’t going to keep the sun off my head, is it?” the 
man said in disgust, turning a dish upside down and holding it over his 
head. “I need it for the garden.” 
“Ah, a parasol?” the assistant asked, enlightenment dawning.
“That’s what I said,” the man insisted. 
And, of course, the customer is always right....

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

My doctor told me that I need to lose some weight. 
I said, “How?”
He said, “Don’t eat anything fatty.”
I asked, “What, pies, chips, that kind of thing?”
He said, “No, just don’t eat anything, fatty.”

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

My yoga teacher would let me do the modified version of everything.
So, for example, the class would do downward dog and she would just let 
me eat ravioli. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I received an academic scholarship and then I used that money for my BA in 
Theatre. 
That’s like if you won the lottery and then just spent all the money on 
Beanie Babies. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think a tree house really insensitive. 
That’s like killing something and then making one of its friends hold it. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’m a positive person. To me, going bald isn’t about hair loss. 
It’s about face gain.


Why don't mummies take time off?
 They’re afraid to unwind.
