My James Bond book and film challenge – and a Bond timeline

James Bond, and the movies in particular, are a lot of things to different people, depending on which version of Bond you prefer. Exciting action movies, thrilling spy adventures, fantasy sci-fi, gritty dark thrillers, even fun campy pseudo-comedies at times. It’s all of those things…

Movie Novelisation – The Goonies by James Kahn

My plan to read one of my many movie novelisations every month hasn’t really gone very well. My last one was August, when I read The Blues Brothers, and it’s now November. Better late than never though right? Let me just say again that if…

James Bond’s favourite games and sports

James Bond is one of those people you’d probably hate in real life, because he’s good at everything! Sports, games, most physical activities, he’s just naturally good at it all. I actually always wondered how he stays so good at everything, so that he can…

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…

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…

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

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…
