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"
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"
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"
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"
After living in the South for 27 years, I finally got around to visiting this famous location just outside Woking. For those of you who don’t know, Horsell Common is the place where the Martians land in HG Wells’ classic novel, The War of the Worlds. That story has been one of my favourites since […]Read more "A Trip to Horsell Common"
