Hi Carlos

Just touching base to tell to you about the film I went to see last night as you asked. My advice to you are don't bother with it at all! It was complete rubbish and a waste of time and money. I really wish I had not gone myself, and if I'd have read the reviews , I'd have given it a miss.
CARLOS IN CAR
I've been going to the cinema regularly, since at least six years, and that was by far the worse film I have seen up to now. It's a such terrible film that I can't understand how or why they decided to make it. Apart of everything else , I was so bored! So, in case you might consider to go , you know my opinion now! Anyway - enough of my complaints - and in spite of my disappointment with this particular film I haven't actually gone off films in general. So, on a different topic, I know that you are interested in live music gigs, and I wondered whether might you like to come with me to the open-air concert in the park next Saturday. It'll be great and all the others are going. Let me know it what you think. But unless I hear from you by Friday, I'll assume you can't make it. I'm attaching more information with this email so you can see who is playing, and we can get the tickets on the night.

So that's all for now.

Speak to you soon. All the best. Jose.
