Last Saturday night millions of UK viewers tuned in to see Leona win the third series of The X Factor, probably the most popular, and influential, talent show around at the moment. Now, Leona is a real talent. She has an incredible voice and immense potential and I’m pleased that she’s won this competition. However,…… Continue reading The X Factor – another nail in the coffin of original music
I watched A Very Long Engagement over the weekend. It’s a French film with English subtitles. I was a little concerned about it’s Chick Flick title and the fact that it was in French, but I needn’t have been – it was absolutely superb! The first thing that you notice about this film is that…… Continue reading Un long dimanche de fiançailles
At last, I’ve finished watching Alias Season Three. After a marathon session starting on Saturday afternoon, I eventually watched the remaining 12 episodes just before midnight. Just about every single episode was brilliant, with shocks and surprises aplenty. Jennifer Garner was gorgeous throughout, even after getting beaten up by Korean Guards and wearing a dirty,…… Continue reading Alias Season Three – completed
I saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at the pictures yesterday. Having seen, and enjoyed, previous three films I was really looking forward to seeing this. Sad I know for a bloke of 36 to look forward to seeing Harry Bloody Potter, but there you go. It was brilliant. Easily as good, if…… Continue reading Good film bad film
I watched The Machinist yesterday on Sky Boxoffice. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect but I’d heard some excellent things about it. It’s billed as a “psychodrama” and it certainly lives up to that. Christian Bale plays the eponymous lead in what has to be the role of a lifetime. He is truly outstanding…… Continue reading The Machinist
One of my very favourite films last year was the hilariously funny Shaun of the Dead. Simon Pegg is one of the funniest comedy writers around and he created a whole new genre of movie when he wrote that film – the Romzom, or even Rom-zom-com. Thankfully many other people have found it to be…… Continue reading Shaun of the Dead. Knitted.
I’ve just seen a rather wince-inducing clip of Dirty Sanchez, the Welsh answer to Jackass. Ouch!
Patrick and I went to see this at the Showcase in Nottingham tonight. It wasn’t a gay date or anything, we both wanted to see this film and so we went together. There was no holding of hands at all. Just thought I’d best get that sorted from the off. I like the boobies remember.…… Continue reading Team America
I’ve just preordered the DVD box set for the original trilogy of Star Wars. I got the DVDs from Amazon for the excellent price of Â£26.99. It’s a pretty good deal, and I found it by using a rather excellent DVD price comparison tool at find-dvd.co.uk which searches a whole bunch of on-line DVD stores…… Continue reading Star Wars Trilogy
For some reason I’m presently watching a film, in French, on BBC2. I was skimming the channels and there was a pretty young female on the screen and I thought to myself “perhaps she’ll get her tits out later” and continued to watch while surfing the interweb at the same time. Well, there hasn’t been…… Continue reading The Closet
These live Most Haunted’s are really getting on my tits. I watched about an hour of the last one at the weekend, got bored and switched over to something else. I love Most Haunted the series, but these live programs are just complete bollocks. I caught the bit on Saturday’s program where they saw a…… Continue reading Most Haunted Live – Summer Solstice
This week’s venue: Wellington Hotel in Cornwall. Not much happening again this week, what with Derek’s failure to become possessed or even many meaningful discoveries, but this episode was at least entertaining. The high points for me were the trips into the “haunted” woods, where Yvette wet her knickers when spooked by evil Simon (“It’s…… Continue reading Most Haunted Series Four – #8
