last-king.jpgI finally watched The Last King of Scotland. We went to go see it once and got stuck in traffic and abandoned ever seeing the movie. Luckily, Netflix came through for us. When I saw it, I thought, “Wow.  What a crazy story…” but then I looked it up and it ends up it is based on a novel. So… anyway… I loved Forest Whitaker as Idi Amin and I didn’t even mind that he delivered the ding.

Dr. Nicholas Garrigan, the horny doctor, was played by James McAvoy. Luckily he was good because it is going to take a lot from him for me to forgive that Becoming Jane trailer. I still can’t watch him in a movie without calling him Mr. Tumnus and asking about Lucy Pevensie once or twice.  Lucy was from Spare oom, by the way.
