    Purple Rain


    The first time I saw Prince perform live was on the night after I had been discharged from a psychiatric clinic. The previous four weeks I had been surrounded by beige walls, quiet sobbing and the zombie shuffle of the tranquilised. I was numbed, the muted ferment of troubled souls had left me subdued, pensive and sombre.

    Fastforward 24 hours... Suddenly I was surrounded by 20,000 screaming Prince fans. Confetti was bursting everywhere in a cascade of purple and gold.…

    The 2017 Ketchup Project #3

    I loved this film, despite what flaws it could be argued to have.

    Frances McDormand was absolutely amazing. Equal parts grieving and disillusioned, she is also resolute and determined. The hardened set of her jaw and the challenge in her fiery eyes says it all. This sometimes leans towards being inflexible, bullish and not a little out of control. But her bleak humour as she seeks justice for her daughter's murder, while also looking for…

    Happy Gilmore


    I was pleasantly surprised.

    My wife was unwell and fast asleep, so I stayed in the small room of the trendy little hotel in Newcastle that we were staying at a couple of months ago.

    Right beneath our window was a courtyard restaurant. The sound of chatty diners and their clinking, clanking cutlery gave way to the shouting and revelry of drunken patrons competing to be heard above each indistinct song of a not-quite-good cover band. All of this eventually…

  • Pussy



    I dont have a pussy.

    And I have always been rather satisfied with my penis.

    But from the looks of this film, having lady bits can be a whole lot of fun, too.

    Still happy to stick with my dick, though.

    Film School Drop Outs Challenge 2017 Week 1 - Auteurs - Pioneers of Film - Lumiere Brothers , George Melies or Alice Guy-Blache

    Everything I love about cinema started right there in the 1890s. The Lumière Brothers started a long tradition of realism, capturing life on camera and providing a snapshot of different times, people and places. In extension of this, Alice Guy-Blache utilised this new mass media to reach out and engage broad audiences in social commentary and make…

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi


    The moment the music began and the prologue started scrolling up the screen I start sobbing.

    And I couldn't stop. By the time I got home my eyes were red and sore. I have had one of the shittest years of my life.

    But Star Wars is still there. It will always be there.

    It takes all our epic struggles, the conflicts with our families and ourselves, and transforms them on the big screen into dog battles in space and…
