TWTWTW: The monthly round-up edition

Star Wars goes cultural Star Wars  figures used to re-enact some of the world’s most famous photographs A car with a 4 L-eater engine Hyundai’s imagines the saloon car for the … Continue reading

TWTWTW: Journo movies and Kickstarter awesomeness

So the yet again delayed weekly web round-up. I like to think of it as more a pleasant surprise when it finally shows up… Allons-y as a police call box-based time traveller might once have said… Journo blockbusters Great piece on  why reporters love movies about journalism. This piece is very good, I’ve seen almost … Continue reading

TWTWTW: Star Wars, Bond, Blade Runner and a bit of viral video too

Web round-up time. I might see if I can get this sponsored by some train company or other, such is its reliability. Bit of a film theme has developed this week – so without further ado… No match for a blaster kid… I love the science of movies stories, so delighted with this: Blaster shots … Continue reading

TWTWTW: You wait ages for a superhero and then six come along at once

TWTFTW: Calendars mean nothing to me…

That was the fortnight that was Despite my good intentions, once again this feature has been about as regular as a dog with constipation. I apologise for the rather graphic simile but it’s late and I’m feeling guilty. So in a bid to pretend that I have been carrying out a punishing blogging schedule I … Continue reading

TWTWTW: At the current rate of production – I should really rename this feature

Yes, yes. I have been tardy, nay a little slapdash in the updating of this blog of late, and especially of this feature. You don’t want to hear excuses, but as I’m writing this, I’m going to give them to you anyway. It’s been a hellish busy start to the year. A couple of new … Continue reading

TWTWTW: The “I took Christmas off special”

Yes, the blog has been left a little fallow the last few weeks, what with the Christmas festivities and all that drinking and eating – but mostly drinking. So my round-up of the interweb is a bit more bumper than usual. So without further ado… Movies I’ve read things you people wouldn’t believe… Apologies to … Continue reading
