The Top 20 Revisited Reads: The Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling – yup. I’ve read and reread. Not all of them, but they are books I think I’ll continue to read. The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien – Of course. I read this every year for a whoile Pride & Prejudice by […]

Moonlight 1.01

Look, this is a new series with a vampire detective, so I hereby promise that there will be many and varied references to how much I miss Angel[1] but it does have Jason Dohring, so I’m keeping an open mind. As always with my telly recaps, beware of spoilers, cause they won’t be hidden.

Soon I’ll move on, in the meantime you can discover the real reason for his facial outpourings, he is Growing a Mo for Hambo, as are quite a few other players. Geordan Murphy is […]

Stardust [based on the book]

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

I read this book a while ago and really enjoyed it, so I wasn’t too sure if I’d enjoy the film. You know the way they always change stuff. But I try to pretend that it is a brand new story and not based on any book, course that doesn’t always work, but I do try.

Anyway, I’m happy to report that Stardust is just a lovely film. It is the story of a young man who goes on a quest into the faerie world to bring back a star in order to prove his love. Only across “the wall” he finds that the star is actually a woman, and that there are others looking to find her, and for slightly more nefarious reasons.

Week 248

Drinking did occur last night. And indeed this morning. As a result I’m rethinking this whole 2 day weekend thing. I’m firmly of the belief that we should get three days off[1] It is the only thing that could make sense. Anyway, a good time was had, but I was on the Bulmers so I’m feeling slightly more groggy today than I would if it had been vodka. But that didn’t stop me having another pint this evening as we investi-magated the pub we’ll be using for the work Pub Quiz I’m organising.

But I know what you are all thinking, forget about that malarky and get onto the word association game, so tada,

No Such Thing

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
So there I was, flicking around this afternoon when I came across No Such Thing. My wonderful browse feature told me it was the story of a young female reporter who tried to find out what happened her missing fiancée only to discover a foul-mouthed monster whom she befriends.

Only it was a lot stranger than that. The first hour or so was all about Beatrice. On her way to Iceland to track down her fiancée her plane crashed into the sea. She was the sole survivor, but was terribly injured. In the world of this film the media have taken over and pretty much run the world, but must contend with a public who grow bored of anything after only a few hours.[1] Beatrice’s boss tried to make her go public and tell her story, but Beatrice doesn’t want to so she is pretty much abandoned in the hospital, where she must undergo an extremely painful operation, with only limited painkiller/anaesthetic.
