Hi all, remember me. I can't express how shocked I was when I realised that I haven't posted anything on here for 6 months. I don't know how that happened, except for things like day job, Christmas, and travelling the world (I'll share more about that another day). Let's hope that I can post a … Continue reading Scoob is Ready to Sweep the World
How many versions of The Addams Family have you seen over the years? If you've lost count, then join the club. Some stories transcend time and remain relevant across generations. The Addams Family is one of those treasures that has been around for over 50 years. Even the music (click click) is instantly recognisable. So, … Continue reading 50 Years of Addams Family Evolution
Katniss is an incredible protagonist. She’s humble, she’s sincere, she’s strong, she’s compassionate, she’s smart. She’s everything I’d like my daughter to look up to and learn from. I know Katniss is fictional and the product of an author’s imagination, but she’s essentially a composite of so many things a woman can be. A guiding light who can inspire girls to take charge of themselves and grab hold of life to achieve anything they want.
Lucy in the Sky promises to be more than a space flick and I'm intrigued to know how it all pans out. If the story is told properly, Natalie Portman could be on a winner.
The Secret Runners of New York is a great new release from Matthew Reilly that’s different to anything he’s written before. Great plot. Great story-telling. Great read. This is New York city with a twist.

I think it's due to the rise and rise of streaming services constantly filling our world with new series and movies. For me, it's impossible to keep … Continue reading How Will Brad Pitt’s New Movie (Ad Astra) Compare To The Martian?
One of my goals as an author is to give back and encourage other indie authors to keep going. I know how hard it has become to get reviews for my books, but I refuse to take the path of paying anyone (or any site) for reviews. I want organic reviews that are from readers … Continue reading Kindle Unlimited Trial + Mini Reviews
Hands up those of you who loved the 1995 version of Jumanji, which starred Robin Williams. Now hands up those of you who saw the 2017 remake, Jumanji - Welcome to the Jungle, which starred The Rock? I sense that the second question had fewer hands raised. I, like many others, loved the original and … Continue reading This Jumanji Trailer Is The Next Level
Over recent months I've seen plenty of hype around a show called Chernobyl. Apparently it has become the biggest series around and has filled a void for many a Game of Thrones fan. IMDb has it score as 9.7/10 and Rotten Tomatoes has an amazing 95% rating. Many have described it as the best series … Continue reading Chernobyl | HBO
I only saw the first Maleficent movie a few months ago. I was surprised at how much I liked it, given that it hadn't really been on my radar. Besides knowing she was a bad apple in Sleeping Beauty, my only real Maleficent experience was having photos with her (scowling) at Disneyland and seeing her … Continue reading Maleficent – Mistress of Evil | Disney
