I'm at the halfway point of my Battlestar Galactica re-watch. To this day many things still astound me. The VFX, the story with its various plot-lines all interweaving and the acting. I want to focus on two particular actors who still shine through in this re-watch. Anyone who has seen the show will recall that... Continue Reading →

Challenge Coin

As midnight releases become more and more popular, film studios are using the opportunity to use these as promo events especially at the main cinemas in Leicester Square.

As a reminder we were warned well in advance that... Continue Reading →

Game of Thrones Revisited

It's been a year since Game of Thrones finished and I thought I'd look back and revisit my thoughts on the matter. The finale was divisive, splitting fans down the middle. To this day I can honestly say I loved the ending and still do. I always had two endings in mind. The first was... Continue Reading →

Costume Recycling

Its been a long standing tradition in both TV and Film for costumes to be recycled. It happens both in the US and the UK and I'm sure elsewhere too. Three fairly well-known examples are below. First we have this space suit that appeared in the 1964 movie 'First Men In The Moon'. It then... Continue Reading →

Celebrate your cinema!

With Lockdown in full force in the UK all non-essential businesses are closed. This has had an impact on many places including cinema. For a few days now the hashtag #CelebrateOurCinemas has been trending on social media so I thought I'd do my part and celebrate my favourites. I've always been a fan of Odeon... Continue Reading →
