Interstellar is out of this world!

I have to say that I loved the movie Interstellar. There’s something so bold and inspiring about it’s message that to me it feels like a call to action for our generation and that of our kids. Christopher Nola’s epic magnum opus Interstellar opened on Friday 8th Nov 2014. I saw it in it’s native […]

True Detective – True Drama

I am a huge Mad Men fan and was a huge Breaking Bad fan (and before them West Wing, et al.) and felt compelled (for the first time) to write something about this extraordinary drama unfolding before my eyes. TD S01 E04 – SPOILER ALERT!

Amazing 4k Video Showreel

Bladerunner Series Prequel/Sequel Coming

It was 1982 when Blade Runner first graced the big screen. It wasn’t a hit, and the released product was noticeably shabby round the edges, but it soon gained underground notoriety that has helped the movie stand the test of time. It’s one of my all time top ten movies. It caught me at the […]

Origami Star Wars X-Wing Fighter!
