Hi everyone, It’s nearly four years now since I finished the first draft of The Ardenna Crossing: Between Two Worlds. Back then, it was just called The Crossing. I’ve tinkered with it and changed it; checked and double checked and now I’m all out of excuses. It’s time I shared it with all of you. […]Read more "The Ardenna Crossing – Coming this December!"
After a conversation in the playground the other day, I decided it was time to scratch the itch that is Choccy Chicken. Years have passed and I’ve never quite got this idea out of my system. Now seemed like as good a time as any. This all starts when I was at Middle School. Apart […]Read more "Choccy Chicken – so sorry!"
I was on the playground on duty today. I was hungry and started daydreaming about sandwiches. This poem is a bit of fun which came out of that. Sweet chilli sauce, And pickled gherkins for the zing, Never cut the crusts off, Don’t do such a wasteful thing, With spicy cheese and egg mayonnaise, In […]Read more "Sandwiches – an acrostic"
Hi everyone, I wrote something for 25YL which you can find here. https://25yearslatersite.com/2020/09/14/alien-isolation-the-best-entry-in-the-franchise-since-aliens/ It’s a little piece about how much I love Alien: Isolation. Hope you enjoy it. RichardRead more "Alien: Isolation article published"
Hi everyone, I thought I’d let the dust settle before I wrote anything about this. The Facebook groups have been alive with discussion since it was released. I saw the premiere on Twitter on my phone (again, don’t tell David Lynch, he wouldn’t approve!) I don’t remember how many posts I’ve written about this film […]Read more "Casting Dune – Trailer Analysis"
Directed by – Christopher Nolan Starring – John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh This was my first trip to the cinema since they re-opened and I picked a great film. It has massive holes in it but if you put those aside and just enjoy the ride, it’s really a wonderful experience. […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Tenet (2020) – spoiler free"
Directed by – Sidney Lumet Starring – Sean Connery, Trevor Howard, Vivien Merchant, Ian Bannen, Peter Bowles Story by – John Hopkins Happy 90th birthday to Sir Sean Connery.

So, I thought I would stick this on as I’ve been rereading the book over the past few weeks (I listen to it while going to sleep so I have to start over and over again with the last part I can remember each time). I remember much preferring this three part mini-series put together […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Children of Dune (2003)"
…or is it the trailer? Is it a trailer for a trailer? Previews within previews within previews. So, I’m glad that I’ve finally managed to find this as everyone else in the world seems to have seen it before me. I saw it in a very low quality, shaky format someone shared on Twitter complete […]Read more "Casting Dune – Trailer Reaction"
