Loz Rambles

Little miss, little miss, little miss can't do wrong...

So, one of my belated birthday presents was going to see Little Miss Sunshine with both of my brothers at Moonlight Cinema last night. Moonlight Cinema is like a drive-in without the cars - an open-space film-showing which occurs every Summer at the Botanic Gardens. In previous years I've been to see Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (in costume!), The Rocky Horror Picture Show (should have worn a costume) and Pirates of the Caribbean (arrr me hearties!)

I have this thing where I don't like to know anything about the films I watch before I watch them. Really. Trailers are generally the bane of my existence - especially those which encapsulate the entire movie in two minutes. Obviously I'm not like this with book adaptations, but generally, the less I know about a plot and characters, the better. So, I went into Little Miss Sunshine knowing who the actors were and that there were some people on my friends list who LOVED IT, oh my goodness what the frightful barbeque, and those who thought they should like it more but didn't think it was all that exceptional. Nothing else.
