A love letter to IT (2017) part 1: From Book to Film

Whenever Gordon Ramsay likes a dish, his go to saying is, ‘wowowow’. This trifecta of awe is a simply yet effective way of expressing, to me at least, that he approves of the ingredients, the way the food looks on the plate, and the way it tastes. The reason I bring this up is because I can think of no more fitting expression to summarise my thoughts on the new adaptation of, in my opinion, Stephen King’s best work – if I were to do it briefly that is.

4 Reasons to Love The Lego Batman Movie

Here’s a fun little fact: Batman is the most adapted comic book hero. He’s appeared on our screens so much it’s easy to forget that most of the time, he’s normally drawn with a pen. From Adam West’s groovy moves in a costume that looked as if it were falling off, to Batfleck’s abstinance of the peaceful approach, preferring to kill things rather than talk morals, we’ve had all kinds of Batmen.
With so many different versions of the dark knight, it’s easy to overlook or disregard some. Continue reading “4 Reasons to Love The Lego Batman Movie”

Fortnightly Four: hanecdote, bymariandrew, gemmacorrell, adampaints

Wonderful! ❤

Trogstad Art

‘Fortnightly Four’ is a little a project I’m working on, based on my addiction to art/illustration-based Instagrams and the sheer excitement about what can be discovered on my favourite social media platform. 

Hanecdote

I’ve been intrigued by Hanecdote, a.k.a. Hannah Hill, for possibly months now. A 22-year-old Londoner, her work is captivating, as it begins with simple drawings and transforms them into intricate embroidery. However, what I enjoy most about her work is how she takes a very traditional art form and makes it something thoroughly ‘now’. I know nothing about grime music, especially when it comes to London’s grime scene, but this doesn’t detract from my wonder towards her delicately threaded CDs. It’s not just CDs either: it’s a conglomerate of trackies, weed, Rubicon, money, bras, iPhones and statements. My favourite work of hers is in fact a detail of the piece pictured above: a fried chicken box.

Spoof Porn is Seriously Weird

There is no gentle way to start this post, perhaps because it touches upon such a taboo subject – well taboo for some, normal for others – so I might as well just avoid beating around the bush and say that spoof porn is so weird. Continue reading “Spoof Porn is Seriously Weird”

The Sickest Horror Film Ever Made

When it comes to the world of horror films, there tends to be a huge pissing contest between critics, fans and film-makers alike over which one should be crowned with the title of ‘scariest horror film ever made’ or ‘most disturbing horror film ever made’, but of course the main problem with this is the fact that it’s all down to opinion. What this also means however is that it’s hard to find those films that are truly worthy of such titles because you have to wade through so many, and when everyone’s telling you the sludge is gold, it makes the search even harder.

GOT: Books vs Show, what the show got right.

Firstly, I just need to get this out the way from the batting line: after watching the first episode of the new season, I was feeling a little uneasy on where the show was going to take us. It was a slow opener, with choices made I didn’t completely agree with (see Dorne rant post) and it just kind of underwhelmed me – what can you expect though eh? It was only the first episode after all, and it has the fun task of setting up the season, so nothing all that exciting could happen. Continue reading “GOT: Books vs Show, what the show got right.”

What A Man Wishes For Game Of Thrones Season 6

With season six of everyone’s favourite non-porn thing to crank their shafts to just a few hours away, anyone who can call themselves a fan is talking about what kind of epic events we’re in store for this season. In every corner of the world there are people talking and discussing about this beloved show – there have been so many theories, so many online debates, and so many sore fingers as result of the continuous clicking of their mouses to slow down the trailers and spot things in order to dissect them.
