Movie Novelisation – The Blues Brothers by Miami Mitch

Movie Novelisation – The Blues Brothers by Miami Mitch

My collection of movie novelisations is growing. I’ve got nearly sixty now. But I think I’ve only read two of them. That needs to change, so I’ve vowed to try to read one per month, amongst reading other books, while I increase my reading quota…

Top Ten Movie Marathons

Top Ten Movie Marathons

I’m writing this one during the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020, and like a lot of people I’ve been watching slightly more TV and movies than normal. I actually didn’t have as much spare time as I thought I would, but at the start of lockdown…

The WarGames soundtrack on vinyl LP

The WarGames soundtrack on vinyl LP

It’s no secret that WarGames is my all time favourite film. It’s my ‘comfort film’, and I’ve easily seen it more than any other film. Unfortunately, however, there isn’t much merchandise for it. There was no movie storybook that I can see, there was no…

These recycled film strips are very cool

These recycled film strips are very cool

I’ve always liked when people repurpose old items into cool new things. I remember watching a programme back in the 80s called Low-Tech where a guy called Rick Ball used to make seats and plant pots out of rubbish basically. That was quite cool. I’ve…

My Final Thoughts and Ranking of the Fast and Furious Movies

My Final Thoughts and Ranking of the Fast and Furious Movies

At the beginning of the summer I started my deep dive of the Fast and Furious universe, or the #Furiverse as I insist on calling it. Since then I have blogged about each movie and also listed my favourite Fast and Furious stunts. Now that…

My Top Ten Fast & Furious Stunts

My Top Ten Fast & Furious Stunts

I recently rewatched all of the Fast and Furious movies as part of my deep dive into the #FastandFuriverse. One thing that struck me was how integral the big set piece stunts were in the franchise. Many of the films have incredible stunts, done in fresh ways that actually…

Fast & Furious 7

Fast & Furious 7

So, I now move on to Fast & Furious 7 in my deep dive rewatching of the Fast and Furious series. This is the last one that I had seen before. I haven’t seen 8 at all yet. And I know this is the last…

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

I continue my deep-dive rewatch of the Fast and Furious films with Tokyo Drift. And this is where the chronological order becomes interesting. I’m not watching this as the third film in the series. I’m watching this as the seventh. And I have already seen Han in three…

Fast & Furious 6

Fast & Furious 6

My rewatch and deep-dive into the Fast and Furious universe is going well. In my memory, the 5th movie was perhaps the best overall, so I’m interested to rewatch the subsequent ones to see how they stack up. This is possibly the first sensibly titled…
