Well? The opening ceremony?
A fantastic celebration of Britishness? Or a mish mash of ideas and themes?
It would be a brave person who criticises the ceremony. Its been well received, as it must always be.
I watched it all and ... well...for me ..it was, erm...
I thought the forging of the rings was excellent. The rising towers was great, if a bit sinister. Branagh was terrific. I thought James Bond and a parachuting her majesty was a clever and amusing and unexpected.
Today the TVs and Radio are all talking about how proud the ceremony made us.
Not sure it made me proud. It wasn't the usual state choreographed, flag waving nationalism, uniform, march of history, festival of dance and military power.
It was certainly 'out of the box' thinking. Dancing Voldemort, TV shows, Mr Bean, Hospitals and some sort of phones4U number in the middle. I'm still not sure. I THINK I liked it.
The kids definitely did.
What did you think?
