Doctor Who: Flesh and Stone / The Vampires of Venice

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

I’ve been lazy and didn’t do a post for last week’s Doctor Who, Flesh and Stone.  So this week I’m doing a read one (post) get two Doctor Who reviews.  I’ll come to The Vampires of Venice soon but first Flesh and Stone and then at the end the Crack and River Song. Second parts […]

Clash of the Titans Review in the Style of the Film

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Review of Clash of the Titans in the style of the film. Story OK but a bit like it was cobbled together for twitter. Looked good. Nice costumes and props. Mix of solid and good special effects. Sound seemed a bit lacklustre.  Might have been the system in the cinema. Gods were great.  So was […]

Doctor Who: The Eleventh Hour

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

So one episode and he fixed it.  Fixed the big problem I had with the RTD Doctor Who.  RTD can do fun.  RTD can do pulp.  RTD can do adventure.  RTD’s plots sometimes relied on an unforshadowed solution at the end. Steven Moffat shows you don’t have to throw logic out the window to do […]

Solomon Kane Review

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Just back from a night out with some friends for a meal and then on to see Solomon Kane at the Odeon in Liverpool 1.  Before I get to the film good to see that the Odeon seems to have improved since the last couple of times I’ve been there.  The cinema was clean and […]

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Short and sweet tonight: I’ve added a page to the Vue section of impworks for the Vue Preview Colour Change Script.  Need to work on my snappy title writing skills.

Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire

Friday, June 12th, 2009

I owe the creators of Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire a big thank you. A couple of months back I wrote a script for a 30 minute radio sit com more by accident than intention. I had an idea one morning and seven hours later I had 6,700 words written set in […]

Too Many Things

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

I think I need a few extra hours in the day – if I did each of the following would probably be its own post… Having finished a fascinating book on illegal gambling in the UK in the ’50s I started reading the first volume of Michael Palins’ diaries on Saturday and there a great […]

It's Trek Jim – Just as we Know It

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

But maybe there was a twist of something in the Romulan Ale. I was pretty happy with J.J. Abrams take on Mission Impossible so I had high hopes for the new Star Trek film. I think I can safely say it didn’t disappoint. The cast played the characters rather than doing impressions of the original […]

Consort Review

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

Having finished The Translated Man I felt like reading some more fiction so I’ve just finished reading Kim’s latest novella Consort. Skipping quickly past the rather cliched cover. Not that its badly done but it reminds me of racks of second hand romance books in charity shops. At least with an e-book its not there […]

The Translated Man

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Finished reading The Translated Man by Chris Braak yesterday. Since I’m being regularly e-mailed by a web site who’ve taken to including my posts tagged reviews are included in their review listings where the reviews are in turn reviewed I’m going to do a bit of a Corbett first. While I may tag this as […]
