Pride and Prejudice - the biggest Colin Firth classic

My apologies for being so bad with updating this blog of late :-/
First, the BA project got in the way. We were very tight for time and we didn’t get it done yet again would you believe! But at least this time we’ve certainly gone forwards and the quality of work is pretty good… or [...]

The third New Moon trailer

I think this is the first one I actually find relatively enticing, though the special effects still look appalling IMO :]
The nice thing about this trailer is that it’s not quite as choppy. The first Twilight film was as “unchoppy” as Hollywood editing gets these days and that was a lot of its charm for [...]

Two Colin Firth interviews

I announced that I’m going through a Colin Firth phase, so I need to provide some proof ;-P
I don’t go through Colin Firth phases often, so the last time I actually actively looked for Colin Firth interviews was ages ago and there wasn’t much up at the time. It’s a very different landscape now though [...]

FILM SPOTTING: WFF 2009 edition | Part Two

I’m trying to cut down as much as possible… In truth there’s a lot of great stuff being shown at the WFF this year *sigh* My two posts are just things that I find hard to say no to even when time is difficult :] (though I’m considering saying no to Świnki as that [...]

I re-watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, as well as Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix relatively recently, but as I have nothing particularly new to add I’m not going to review them again ;-P Prisoner of Azkaban is still fab to me - I enjoy it a lot every [...]
