I almost shrieked like a girly girl. There it was, floating a metre in front of me, within touching distance, if I just stretched out my hand I could probably feel it under my fingertips. I wondered if anyone would notice and, glancing around, I saw the same look of wonderment that I could also…

Dentist this morning, a hygienist visit only thankfully (no I don’t floss enough, I know, I know) then the car goes into the garage this afternoon to get a bump stop replaced. I think. It may be two bump stops. I’m not sure. It’s under warranty and has something to do with the suspension. After…

Movie info from IMDB Movie reviews from Metacritic I’ve been very aware of this movie for a while now, and very aware of avoiding reading reviews, articles and spoilers.

Apparently the new Star Wars movie (out in 14 days and counting) is a bloodbath. The movie has been given a PG-13 rating due to its “sci-fi violence and some intense images”, which warns parents that it could be inappropriate for viewers younger than 13. I say GOOD! Is it possible that Mr. Lucas may…

As I’m all “wrote” out, I thought I’d tackle this meme I’ve seen in several places over the last couple of weeks. Lazy blogging of the nth degree but infinitely less time consuming than writing a post although, as ever, I find myself procrastinating about how quick and dirty these things are only to spend…

Return of the King

Reading time: < 1 min

Return of the King It is a testament to both the Director, script writer and the special effects department that this film closed out the trilogy in such epic fashion. The fight scenes were immense in scale, detail and action, and the dual storylines were well edited to maintain the pace of the movie. I…
