Friday Favourites: things we read and watched in March

Logan The third and last movie in the Wolverine franchise is in my opinion the best X-Men film yet and one of the best films yet in the Marvel Universe, period (my other favourites being Captain America: Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War, Iron Man 1 and Guardians of the Galaxy). It benefits from […]

Friday Favourites: Point Horror

Welcome to a throwback, but not on a Thursday. Emily Kitchin (fellow book lover and editor of many a Chapter 5 – our YA community – novel)  and I recently discussed our teenage love of the Point Horror novels, they were pretty much the gateway books to adult horror and they were so  bad that […]

Friday Favourites: Conspiracy Theories

Some people get ultra religious, others bombard their brains with mindless entertainment but my favourite is creating a theory that is so god-damned bizarre that when someone else hears it they just sit back and say, ‘Huh…  interesting’, this is usually accompanied by a wide-eyed stare and a slow, nervous nodding of the head.

It’s amazing and sad […]

Friday Favourites: Things we read and watched in February

TRUE ROMANCE As a Valentine’s Day treat I took my husband to see True Romance (1993), his favourite film, on the big screen. It was the first time I’d seen the movie in five or six years, and it still holds up, though it’s written by Quentin Tarantino and therefore skates along the dodgy edge […]

Friday Favourites: Bond Films

  Thunderball (1965) What the early Bond films feature (and which only really came back with Casino Royale) is brutality: the Bond of the 60s is an elegant monster. Thunderball, which Fleming wrote for the screen and then turned into a novel, features man-eating sharks, nuclear bombs and a pretty tremendous villain. Many might find […]
