  • To find contentment in one’s place of work, or finding contentment in one’s choice of career, is a rare commodity indeed – most of the time a job is just a means to an end. Working life – I personally found, was a drudgery that takes time away from the things you would rather be doing instead. Such is the need to earn money.

    Oh…. and hi…[Read more]

    Hello Boops!
    I am an old campaigner, but I’m sorry to say I don’t recognise your username. But apart from all that – welcome back to Thoughts.

  • “Tales from the Loop” is an eight part science fiction drama developed by Nathaniel Halpern; the series is based on an art book of the same name by Swedish artist Simon Stalenhag. The series aired in its entirety […]

  • “The Green Knight” is a medieval fantasy film directed, written, and produced by David Lowery and was released in the U.S on July 30th 2021. Adapted from the anonymous 14th Century poem “Sir Gawain and the Green […]

    • 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”

  • “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.

  • 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…[Read more]

  • For Monica.

    “The Vast of Night” is a film directed, co-produced, and written by Andrew Patterson. The film premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival in January 2019 and was later released in the U.S in May […]

    • 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.

    Emma we love you!

  • Hello Arik, welcome to thoughts.

    We live in a modern world where everything is moving at break-neck speed and has to be done yesterday! Time schedules rule most of us and determine where we should be at any given moment, and this process begins in childhood when the school time-table enters our lives and shapes our behaviour and expectations…[Read more]

    Last year it was Neil Peart (RUSH) – this year Charlie Watts.

    He was one Stone I imagined would roll on forever.

  • These types of post are still relevant – Covid has gone nowhere and is still here.
    The one thing I still miss the most is being able to go anywhere without fear of infection – even if it’s a jaunt to my local town centre of Epsom. Last year during the height of the pandemic I sold my car because it had been sitting there going nowhere, so rather…[Read more]

  • This is one of those shows that I’ve heard about but never seen – presumably because it isn’t available here on the other side of the pond. I’ll check to see if it’s on Amazon Prime.

    And while we’re on the subject. . .watched a film last night (on Amazon) called “I think we’re alone now.” It stars Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning. The plot is…[Read more]

    I said you can’t do that to me, you didn’t believe me. . .
    I warned you about the direct consequences of inexcusable actions, you ignored me. . .

  • Hi Lampoil – aka – Mary Jo Hawkins.

    Your old username sounds familiar but as my memory goes it might be playing tricks on me. There were so many names back then, some I remember well while others I struggle with. Your memory with names is obviously better than mine.
    Anyhoo. . .welcome back.
