Travel Pictures: Dubrovnik

Yes, I have been absent for about a week. But that isn’t due to laziness! I have been on holiday with my fiancee to Dubrovnik. And yes, we were inspired to go there mainly because of Game of Thrones. However, it’s a beautiful city in its own right. Here are a selection of pictures from my holiday (only the chosen, because I took around 9GB worth of pictures! Continue reading

top 10

Happy New Year everyone! Is it time for resolutions? Probably, but to celebrate the New Year, here are my Top 10 Anticipated Films in 2017…released in the UK, of course! So some may have already been shown to our cousins across the Atlantic. Good for them! Yes, the film schedule may be chockful of superhero films, so I’ve limited them to one…well, technical two…It’s a jam-packed year, so I’ve had to narrow down my choices a lot! Continue reading

Review: Only God Forgives (2013) (An Unforgivable Bore?)

only god forgives“Time to meet the Devil

Anyone who watched ‘Drive,’ the first collaboration between Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling, would have been eager to watch their second collaboration, ‘Only God Forgives.’ ‘Drive’ was perhaps Refn’s masterpiece, a brilliant mesh of genres with a delectable soundtrack. I, too, was eager to see ‘Only God Forgives,’ but had to wait until its DVD release to watch it. Apparently no cinemas in my vicinity want to show Refn films! I’m having the same difficulty trying to find a showing for ‘The Neon Demon.’ So, to prepare for the latter, Refn’s latest film, I re-watched ‘Only God Forgives.’ I admit I fell asleep during my first viewing. If you’re expecting ‘Drive: The Sequel,’ then you’ll be sorely disappointed. Continue reading

Review: ‘Stephen King’s IT’ (1990) (The Film, Not The Book!)

(SPOILERS AHEAD!)

“Do they float?”

What’s there to do after you’ve just read one of your favourite books of all time? Well, watch the movie adaptation, of course! And then be terribly disappointed 90% of the time…and that’s the case with the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘IT’, a made for TV effort released in 1990. When I saw it as a young lad, I thought it was terrifying. Well, the first half and Pennywise The Dancing Clown. However, even back then the ending looked ropey, and the second half bored me. Now, with more mature eyes (I hope…I certainly can’t see as well as I could back then!), the flaws in the adaptation are even more glaring. Continue reading
