Okay, so we just finished the opening ceremonies. Thank heaven for the fast forward and skip buttons on our PVR remote!
I honestly didn't know who Danny Boyle was until they mentioned "Slumdog Millionaire". DH and I watched half an hour before we turned it off. Boring and not our kind of movie. I found these ceremonies very similar, though there were some good parts:
-JK Rowlings (just because she never appears in public)
-The children's choirs
-The music sequence but they missed out on U2 and Elton John (and for that matter Bob Geldof)
- The cauldron. Probably the best one ever as each "petal" represents a country and they came together as the world.
- Paul McCartney
Some parts I didn't like:
- The Queen looked like she wanted to be anywhere but there.
- Liked Mr. Bean, but would have enjoyed seeing the orchestra - that is a classic British piece of music not to mention its Olympic ties.
- Daniel Craig
