Film and odd fares

No Country For Old Men

I've just been in town to watch No Country For Old Men. Well in the theme that's always been prevalent in this blog I'm not going to write a long winded review of the film :-) It won 4 Oscars. Go figure.

Having only knowingly watched two Coen brothers films, with the other one being their first, Blood Simple, they bear a remarkable resemblance - even though they've been filmed over 20 years apart. Not that that's a bad thing of course. I liked Blood Simple.

On the bus back, oddness occurred. Basically, I got a ticket back to Dunkirk, and the other person I was with was got a ticket back to Beeston Rylands. For them that are clueless about the whereabouts of place in Nottingham... Beeston Rylands is about 2 miles further than Dunkirk.

So... why did it cost 10p less to go there?

This is of course a very important question. Would have have been better off saying I was going to the Rylands and got off sooner. Or would I have been dragged back on the bus and told to wait until I was where I was saying I was going.

Don't worry folks. The bus company have been emailed, asking them the very same thing. I await their reply... and then I'll inform you... just so you know!
