Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

Before I get to any more lucid thoughts – was it just me or did the two water zombies marching around look a lot like Ray Liotta and Mark Kermode? So the long awaited second Doctor Who special The Waters of Mars was on tonight.   It was good fun.  From the trailer I’d expected a […]

Review – Wanted

Friday, July 4th, 2008

Short spoiler free review: only go and see this if you can live with an action picture entirely lacking a heart or soul which justifies its existance by lashing itself to a far too cool barrel before throwing itself into a river above a waterfall. Which isn’t a good thing TM. So I went to […]

In Bruges

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

In the way that dark chocolate became a lot darker a few years ago In Bruges takes dark comedy gangster films and makes them a lot darker. Its an action thriller with little action. An 18 film that definitly deserves its certificate without being gratuitous. A film which isn’t what you’d expect but certainly doesn’t […]

Ashes to Ashes or Dempsey and Drakepeace?

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

Really enjoyed the first episode of Ashes to Ashes on BBC 1 tonight. I’ll avoid saying much more because far too easy to drop a spoiler if I do. I did enjoy the switch from Life on Mars’ take on the Sweeney to something more akin to Dempsey and Makepeace or, maybe, The Professionals. Fingers […]

Thirteen Things about Mark Caldwell Yesterday my Wordless Wednesday picture was of this vase full of nuts and I promised I’d post an explanation. I was walking in Newsham Park in Liverpool a year ago. As I went under a Horse Chestnut tree a gust of wind brought a liberal shower of Horse Chestnuts down […]

Thirteen Things Mark Caldwell hates about cold calls When they say it will only take a minute of your time it never is. I wouldn’t mind but they’ll never give me an address for me to send my bill. 99% are a waste of my time and the company paying for its time. I don’t […]
