Thoughts On Monty Python’s Infamous, Insensitive Crucifixion Scene

The controversy of Monty Python's The Life of Brian has mostly passed, and that's because the message of their film was not intended to be controversial. As John Cleese and Michael Palin say in their debate about the nature of the film, it is by no means intended to debunk Christ. It is far too … Continue reading Thoughts On Monty Python’s Infamous, Insensitive Crucifixion Scene

In A Story, I Think I Like Openings The Most

This is something that I've learned slowly, and obviously it's not a rule that is always true, it just tends to be that I like the introduction the most. This doesn't mean that I don't anticipate an ending, and enjoy it, perhaps the finale is what I sometimes like the most in shows. But in … Continue reading In A Story, I Think I Like Openings The Most

What Makes Me Watch… Well Anything?

Yesterday I talked about what makes me keep watching a piece of media once it's already got my interest, however what about from the outside looking in? What makes me choose to watch that thing in the first place? Well not a lot, I'm a simple person prepared to try things without much of a … Continue reading What Makes Me Watch… Well Anything?

What Makes Me Keep Watching… Anything Really?

If you find a TV show, film, or anything else that you like, what makes you keep watching it? Do you watch it for the characters, the actors, the story line, the music, the visuals or what? The obvious answer is everything, however what is the most important really? To me it has to be … Continue reading What Makes Me Keep Watching… Anything Really?

Liar Game: Reborn Review – Musical Chairs!

The perspective I'm reviewing this from is someone that has read the manga, found that the musical chairs arc was their favourite, and jumped ahead past halfway through season 2 just to watch this. This meant that I knew a lot of the twists and turns already. At the start of musical chairs everyone is … Continue reading Liar Game: Reborn Review – Musical Chairs!

What if People Thought You Were the Messiah? – Life Of Brian

Monty Python's Life of Brian is such a funny and hilarious film that follows Brian, a person who many people confuse with the messiah in the same time period of Jesus. The moment that the people thought he was a messiah was so funny that it caused me to laugh so loudly that everyone in … Continue reading What if People Thought You Were the Messiah? – Life Of Brian

The Last Jedi Ruined Everything, was good though

I recently got the chance to watch the last jedi for free so I took up that chance and watched it on a huge projector type screen, with many other people, in a field in the middle of nowhere.

Perfect Blue Is Terrifying

Calling something terrifying often means that it’s scary and horrible to sit through, that it’s painful and difficult to watch.

It’s about mental illness and the horrible side effects … Continue reading Perfect Blue Is Terrifying

The Show Don’t Tell Rule is not Perfect

The shows don’t tell rule is a standard for good writing, especially in media like films. Since I’ve been on a bit of a film binge recently I’ve noticed a few things that have made the show don’t tell rule a little more complex in my mind to the point that I consider it highly … Continue reading The Show Don’t Tell Rule is not Perfect

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time Is a Great Film

It’s rare for me to find a time travel film which tackles it’s time travel mechanic in such an interesting and personal way. Instead of a simple save the world plotline the show explored the less catastrophic, more fun side of time travel whilst still creating an interesting, high stakes story which is fun to … Continue reading The Girl Who Leapt Through Time Is a Great Film
