‘Legend’ (1985).
Saw it was directed by Ridley Scott and was tempted in. Has unicorns in it. High risk of hyperglaecemia. Equivalent to eating four kilos of sticky toffee pudding at a sitting. Lasted less than ten minutes
Rating *

‘Stand by Me’ (1986)
Haven’t seen this for years. The boys’ acting stands the test of time. Writer Steven King supplies some typical suspenseful moments but I was less impressed on this viewing. What comes over most powerfully is how dreadful small town¬†America is/was/seems. Kiefer Sutherland has a good line in playing bullying low life types. His character ‘Ace’ is particularly obnoxious.
Glaecimic index warning:Big slab of sticky toffee pudding at the end.
