From the moment my father read “The Man With The Twisted Lip” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to me as a small child I’ve always loved a crime thriller. From the beautifully English & naive Famous Five… Continue reading

Written In Blood

It was unavoidable. Monstrous. Looming. The early buzz of the Godzilla 2014 slammed our shores like an atom bomb: director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla would be a rehash of the Steven Spielberg classic Jaws, unapologetically. Trailers… Continue reading


OK everyone, I’ll keep this brief. Watch SCREEN. A tension-cranking, beautifully-girled, excellently-filmed yarn.
