  • Defiance S3E13 – Upon The March We Fittest Die

      WARNING! SPOILERS BELOW!!   Woah! I really didn’t expect that ending at all. It was beautiful, as Nolan jetted through all the different systems in the Omec ship, you could tell the VFX people had really gone wild. What about the bit with the meteor shower hitting that moon?? *sigh* I will miss Kindzi.…

  • Star Trek: Renegades

    Finally watched Star Trek: Renegades and I loved it! Pluses: the sheer love of Trek seeps out of the whole film. I loved playing ‘spot-the-actor’ particularly when it was actors who’d been in Trek but not as the same character as they portray in ST:R. Also, the CGI for the space scenes is absolutely glorious. Kind…

  • We Love The Monkees

    And I thought I’d be okay, that it’d be a standard-issue ‘origin/clip/weren’t they great’ cheesy doc. In some ways it is.

I have tried so many times to rip-off the style of this sequence and never managed it yet: the editing is exquisite. It’s also a wonderful…

  • Krays Kraze

    Just watched two ads on telly. The first was for the new Kray twins film starring Tom Hardy. The second was for Jackpotjoy. The ad stars Barbara Windsor who, in the sixties, was a big fan of the Krays: Her first marriage was to small time crook Ronnie Knight, and through him, she became associated…

  • Absurdly Detailed Pop Punk Dream

    (My dreams aren’t like normal dreams with hats becoming penguins and all kinds of impossibilities, my dreams tend to be like little films, in Technicolor, full 5.1 and with coherent plots, characters and locations.) I’m talking to this guy, he’s about 21 or so, we’re walking along and he says that I need to come…

  • Boy Meets Girl

    Mild spoilers after the break:
