Lockdown Uplift (6/20)

Just a quick note of some of the funnest online content I watched this month (in no particular order): – Fern Brady starred in a two-part BBC “series” in which she attempted to strike it rich as a viral internet … Continue reading

“Let’s Paint The Town Colin!”

An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn (2018) seems to be a pretty divisive movie, with a (close as dammit) 50/50 split between positive and negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, from critics and users alike! And I can totally understand why … Continue reading

Rock ‘N’ Rule!

I’d fast-tracked my viewing of Trolls (2016) and Trolls Holiday (2017) in anticipation of (possibly) going to see Trolls World Tour at the cinema… but then everything got shut down, and my tentative plans were dashed. Still, Universal went ahead … Continue reading

“Whoopsie!”

Ever since I got a smart-TV-thingy, episodes of Screen Rant’s “Pitch Meetings” series have been popping up in my YouTube “suggestions” feed, but I’ve always resisted clicking on them because of the fugly title-card images… until last week, that is, … Continue reading

Hallowhine 2019

My Hallowe’en got off to a rather dismal start this year, when the local “Zombie Fest” got cancelled due to crappy weather, and I was reduced to skulking around the dull, undecorated shopping centre/mall, in soggy clothes. Thankfully, that disappointment … Continue reading

Happy Batday!

Apparently today marks the 80th Anniversary of Batman’s first published appearance, in Detective Comics #27 (1939)*, courtesy of creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger… since then he’s become pretty much ubiquitous across all media, and all age-groups, and I say … Continue reading
