    • Nice work. I like this.

    • Thanks Jim, means a lot.

      I love creating pictures then stare at them when they are finished until a seedling of a story emerges, I then put pen to paper – so to speak.

      • I completely understand. I do almost the exact same thing in nature. I look at or tune into a scene, a place, and let my higher mind lead me into the story of that place or time. It is always amazing to me how randomly creative the mind can be! I especially connect to the magik part of your work too since that has been a large part of my life.

    • the suspense you create is impeccable🔥

    • Thank you.

      I just create a picture and then let my imagination run rampant until a thread of a story is realised, then I run with it.

    • cant wait for the next hope you make it soon as possible

    • I always endeavour to produce the next part in a timely fashion. The part that takes the longest to process is finding an appropriate set of images to create the picture for the part in question. Once the images have all been gathered, I then begin the picture composite which is very time consuming.

    • very good..onward. me, not you..unless, of course it pertains to you too. lol

    • Very artistic trailer …. dark.
      Ok….I will have to add this to my list. I think I remember seeing a preview for this.
      I like Dev Patel….he is such a great actor.

      You are right about all of the King Arthur movies. I think my favorite is “Excalibur”

    • NEVER heard of this but I will watch it.
      We have every pay channel on our televisions here so I am sure I can find it somewhere.

      I love movies but never was one for “writing” reviews. I have always felt….if the Movie Trailer doesn’t hook you….my words DEFINITELY will not hook you. So I alway opted for just posting a trailer.
      BUT with your gift for writing Jules you do such an excellent job at reviewing.

    • Hi Monica.

      Thanks for the compliment. . .and the plug!

      During the last year and a half there have been a lot of films that have come in under the radar – so to speak, because of the pandemic. Many have gone straight to stream while others – such as the new Bond film, have been held back until cinemas open again.

      There are gems a-plenty just waiting to be discovered. I myself had never heard of “The Vast of Night” until I saw the thumbnail on Prime Video. I clicked on it and began watching what is now my favourite film of the year. Another gem I came across was “I Think We’re Alone Now” – an independant film that stands above all others for its quality of story.

      Of course. . .there is the caveat that what I think is good, others might disagree with, but I always trust in the fact that people recognise quality when they see it. And the above mentioned films ooze quality with ease.

  • I don’t normally devote my blogs to film reviews as such, but I just watched what I can simply describe as one of the most disturbingly hypnotic movies I have seen in a while. Strictly speaking this is not a […]

    • I have to say Jules…..you REALLY need to do more movie reviews. You got me hooked. I am going to sign off now because I found the movie somewhere on my TV and I am going to start watching it.

      No pizza in site 😉

    • Ok….watched this CREEPY movie and have to say it was not something up my alley. But I KNOW my sisters and brothers would LOVE this so I sent them the recommendation.

      As for that disturbing scene you mentioned…… the ‘MELDING” of the 2?
      HORRIBLE ….GROSS…… SCARY!!!!

      • “The melding” you got it right on.

        It wasn’t so much the visuals but the noises they were both making – it made me cringe with pity and disgust.

  • Congratulations to Emma Raducanu in winning the US Open Tennis Championships. Emma became the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since Virginia Wade back in 1977.

    The rule of the sword
    A dangerous thing
    Many a head fell
    For a righteous claim
    To sit upon a throne
    Their ultimate aim.
