  • 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!

    • 🤣 Cant wait to read the story about this girl.

        I don’t actually have a story for this one. . .that’s not to say I couldn’t create one.

  • I said you would regret it, you didn’t believe me. . .
    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. . .
    I told […]

  • How is everyone doing? Hope all is well 🙂 One Love!

  • Online Gambling

    What is online gambling, how does it work and is it legal?

    1. What is online gambling?

    Also called internet gambling, or, online betting, is when people place real bets over the internet. […]

    • Thanks for sharing the info. Casinos and gambling intrigue me but I have never been a gambling man myself. I played blackjack – once – and won 5 pounds (UK) that was all. I have only ever won lottery tickets that gave me a free ticket (which always lost) and I did win a pair of tights (pantyhose) at a fair bingo game. That should tell you why I am not a gambling man. 🙂

  • From a time long ago
    To castle and king
    The rule of the sword
    A dangerous thing
    Many a head fell
    For a righteous claim
    To sit upon a throne
    Their ultimate aim.

  • In my sphere of existence
    I strive to climb higher
    Perhaps a visual metaphor
    No need for a safety wire
    I am what I am
    There’s no denying that
    Putting my best foot forward
    In a world some think of as flat.

  • She came with a mist
    Descended from a star
    A white wolf companion
    Both champions from afar
    None could resist them
    Great power they did bring
    Sweeping across a troubled land
    Shining light on everything.
