Michel Gondry – The master of the music video.

October 31, 2010


As The Green Hornet is due to hit our screens this January, I thought it might be a good time to look back over the brilliant work of Michel Gondry. Michel Gondry might be an Academy Award winning director, best known perhaps for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but to me it is his […]

Spiced Apple Puree Martini.

October 24, 2010


  I made myself this delicious drink yesterday. Firstly you will need to puree some apples. I’ll be honest, the puree was originally made  to complement the evening’s pork chops, but I thought the puree too good to waste! For the puree: Wash, peel, core and chop 2 bramley apples. Put in bowl. Add one […]

Tron Legacy & Tron’s Legacy

October 21, 2010


  Tron Legacy, the long awaited sequel to the Eighties classic Tron, is almost upon us and it looks as though it will have been worth the wait. The original 2008 ComicCon promo. This was made as much to convince Disney that it could be done as it was to whet the appetite of fans. […]

James Bond Style – launch a stylish new section.

October 19, 2010


As I’m sure many of you are aware, I’m quite a fan of James Bond, oo7. So, I was extremely flattered to be asked to contribute to the spanking new style section of the excellent, the largest unofficial James Bond site on the net. Whilst the style section is still in its infancy, it’s […]

The Best Hotel In Devon – The Whitehouse Hotel, Chillington.

October 18, 2010


Great news for The Whitehouse hotel in Chillington who’ve just been made the Devon hotel of the year in the Good Hotel Guide, 2011. I’ve been back to The Whitehouse since my last visit and, I have to say, the experience was just as wonderful. With so many places in  the world still to explore, […]

October 12, 2010


Yesterday marked the launch of Wool Week here in the UK to raise awareness for The Campaign For Wool, an initiative to highlight the diverse benefits of wool to consumers, initiated earlier this year by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales. To kickstart the week, The Campaign For Wool, in conjunction with Savile Row […]

Top Modern Movie Title Sequences.

October 11, 2010


Movie titles are great, aren’t they? The evolution from a simple playbill through to bona fide art form has given us many memorable cinematic moments. Some compliment the narrative of the film to come, others serve simply to visually delight. It would be impossible to write about title sequences without mentioning Saul Bass’ iconic openers […]

GoldenEye 007 & Blood Stone – James Bond goes head to head with himself.

October 5, 2010


“Ah, Mr. Bond, we’ve been expecting you” Whilst this could be the line of some megalomaniacal villain, it is far more likely the universal cry of the typical Bond fan as they eagerly await the next oo7 film. Sadly, it looks like they will be in for quite a long wait. For those of you […]
