Rain Man strikes again
My lovely lady and I love curling up with a good DVD to watch. We don't actually buy any, but rent them from Screen Select . For fifteen quid a month, we can have up to three DVD's at a time. Great for those miserable nights when there's fuck all worth watching on the telly (that's nearly every night).
Last night was one of those nights. The great thing about renting as opposed to buying, is that you have access to some of those old classic movies you watched years ago and forgot all about.
I had forgotten how brilliant Dustin Hoffman was in Rain Man. His role as an autistic man recently discovered by his arrogant, materialistic brother played by a very young looking Tom Cruise was spellbinding and just reminds you what a superb actor Hoffman is.
Go on, give it a go. You will not be disappointed.
