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)"
Hi everyone, How lovely to sit and watch something from David Lynch that I’ve never seen before. I thought this was brand new but then the title at the end said 2015. I don’t know if it had just remained hidden until now or if everyone else had already seen it. I deliberately didn’t read […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Fire (Pozar)"
Hi everyone, It’s been ages since we had any news on Dune so it’s been a real thrill to get so much new stuff over the course of a couple of days. It gives us our first look at the actors in role. Obviously, these are prepared shots as opposed to stills from the film […]Read more "Casting Dune – Vanity Fair First Look reaction"
Hi everyone, I capped off a day out in the capital with a visit to the Prince Charles Cinema for a screening of this Roger Corman effort which I had some fond childhood memories of. I say childhood memories because I don’t think I had seen this film since I was about 10 years old. […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Battle Beyond the Stars (1980)"
There have been quite a few posts showing this and I thought it was worth an update as I haven’t had anything concrete to write about in this project for quite some time. Images have been dropping left, right and centre including posters and artwork but they all get debunked within a few hours as […]Read more "Casting Dune – Logo reaction"
Opinions seem to be divided on this; the last of the nine part saga that George Lucas started in 1977. I see a lot of people who love it and a lot of people who hate it. Some say it is a worthy ending; others that it is the worst type of fan service. Some […]Read more "My Top 10 bits of Star Wars Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (spoilers galore!!)"
Despite its many flaws, I should preface this by saying that I prefer this to any Star Wars film ever made. Director David Lynch’s struggles over this project are well documented elsewhere and I won’t attempt to better what other, more well-informed, people have already written on the subject. What lies at the heart of […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Dune (1984)"
Horsell Common I finally finished the audiobook version of this, read by David Tennant. I have to say that I was amazed at this book from start to finish. It has been a while since I have read any 19th Century literature and I was unprepared for just how action-packed this story is. Really, I […]Read more "Tonight’s Reading – The War of the Worlds"
Hi everyone, After a long time spent casting, organising props, costumes, locations and everything else that goes into making an independent film, there has been a lot of movement in the past couple of months on my good friend Cameron’s long-awaited Twin Peaks fan film. The filming of Queen of Hearts is well underway and, […]Read more "Queen of Hearts update November 2019"
Martin Landau, one of the mainstays of the original series on which this $3.6bn franchise is based, walked out of the production of the first film. He said that it was too different from the original premise of the show. Instead of covert operations, he felt that the film was going for all out action.
