Some Shahrukh interviews

Saw My Name is Khan on Monday and I seem to be having a Shahrukh relapse ;-P But hey, it’s been a while, so I’m kind of glad - I was starting to miss my Shahrukh fixation ;)
So anyway, something I had meant to post ages ago was the Jonathan Ross interview, which he did [...]

I’m attempting to put the rating system into practice… We’ll see how that goes :) It’s a little difficult when I’m applying it so far back (I’m still about 2 months behind with my reviews *blush*).

I want to introduce a film rating system on my blog at some point in the future and was hoping for input :) I struggle with conventional film rating systems - they seem a bit meaningless. Rating a film out of 10 or 5 just doesn’t tell you all that much about what is meant [...]

Apparently, it was copyright’s 300th birthday 10 days ago! I thought this was a pretty cool article about the history of copyright and how different its original intentions were.

Plus he has a very cool surname (for those who don’t know, a lutz is one of the jumps in figure skating :)). So in celebration of that, here’s Kellan Lutz on Ellen (he does some amazing push-ups ;)), but [...]

Cherrybomb publicity

It’s been almost a year since I spotted Cherrybomb and yet only now is it getting a release date in the UK. Still practically no news whatsoever about release dates elsewhere in the world.
