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.

Having done Buffy and Angel, it seemed fitting that I should complete the set by running down my favourite Firefly episodes. As there are so few, and they’re all so good, it seemed silly to cut any off the list. I did 15 Doctor Who stories after all, so why not do 15 Firefly episodes.

I went through the gentlemen a month or so ago. Now it’s the ladies’ turn. I’ve been wracking my brains and consulting family and friends about who they think should make this list. This is what I came up with. I should say up front that Paco Rabanne’s revolutionary work on a certain film is […]Read more "Who’s the best dressed woman in Space?"
