Bad Actors! Stop giving them work!

WARNING – This post is entirely my opinion and yes, I’m very opinionated. There are clear and obvious reasons why some actors get regular work, and it isn’t always because they’re actually any good. Often, they may have one good role in them – Stallone as Rocky, Arnie as Terminator [read more…]

Die Hard – The Argument that Won’t Die!

Every year, regardless of previous discussions, I get caught up in the age-old argument of “Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?” Of course it isn’t and I shout this from the rooftops constantly and it’s a hill I’m prepared to die on but what exactly does make a movie a [read more…]

Dune: Part 2 – A Review

Dune: Part 2 is the cinematic experience you never knew you needed – unless you were yearning for two and a half hours of desert landscapes and Timothee Chalamet struggling to emote.

Closets and Chronicles

In the dimly lit corner of my cluttered office, surrounded by a tower of half-empty coffee cups and a mountain of half-written notes, I’m embarking on a literary adventure destined to change lives (or at least entertain a few people).

My Core Values

In 2017 I trained to be a life coach, specialising in executives. It was a brilliant course and even if you don’t want to work as life coach it’s a course I’d recommend as the skills I learned on the course are skills I use almost daily. Anyway, as part [read more…]
