Week 19

It’s that time again kids, this weeks Watched, Read & Listened To List.

This week I watched quite a bit of stuff….highlight of the week is a Tv documentary I watch Dara O’Briain Meets Stephen Hawking. I’m a big fan of both and see them meet was quite interesting. I’d also recommend this for fans of the bio-pic The Theory of Everything. If you are like me and ever wonder how much of these based on true fact stories is actually true… but that is just me. It is really interesting to see how Stephen interacts with Dara, considering his condition were he can’t actually speak for a while until he composes his answer; contrasting with Dara’s comedy/Geek background. There is an amazing part were Stephen tells Dara jokes…and you see Stephens reaction, his laughter. There is something so humbling and revealing into the  character that is Stephen Hawking before his illness took over.


Soundtrack of the week this week is Johann Johannsson score for The Theory of Everything…just because I was so caught up in the documentary. Which doesn’t mean that the score isn’t good, far from it…Johannsson sure knows how to pluck on the heart strings.

Week 18

It’s that time again kids, this weeks Watched, Read & Listened To List.

This week I watched and read quite a bit of stuff….highlight of the week is a Tv show I discovered on Netflix called Danger 5. For those of you who don’t know about it, it is a show like a real-life remake of Thunderbirds…if Thunderbirds was created by the same people who done Team AmericaGarth Marenghi’s Darkplace. It is one of the best Tv shows that I have seen in a very, very long time!!


Soundtrack of the week this week is Steven Price’s score for last years critically acclaimed Gravity. I remember listening to this for the first time in the cinema, and it was such a huge sound! A huge sound for such a minimalist score that is, and I for one it got the critics attention as many great minimalist score usually slip by unnoticed behind the film itself which is a shame. Take the initial track for example Above Earth, and listen to it through headphones or really good speakers….throughly evoking work.

Week 15

It’s that time again kids, this weeks Watched, Read & Listened To List.

This week I watched and read quite a bit of stuff….highlight of the week is a tie between starting the second season of Utopia and this weeks review John Wick. If you haven’t seen either I urge you to do so! I have talked about the first season of Utopia in an earlier highlight of my Watched, Read & Listened To List.


Soundtrack of the week this week is Joe Hisaishi’s masterpiece for the 2004 Studio Ghibli movie Howl’s Moving Castle. Truly masterful stuff from Hisasihi again, who really knows how to play on the heart-strings.

Week 14

It’s that time again kids, this weeks Watched, Read & Listened To List.

This week I watched and read quite a bit of stuff….highlight of the week would have to sitting down to watch the Cornetto Trilogy back to back in all its glory.  For those of you who don’t know of the Cornetto Trilogy it is the love child of the fantastic Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, featuring ‘Shaun of The Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘ and ‘The Worlds End‘. Never watched it back to back before, and it was great to see all the links and homages within each film….and if I had to pick between each of these amazing Wright-Pegg love children….I’d have to go for Shaun of the Dead…guess I just got red on me..


Soundtrack of the week this week is from one of my favourite composers….Michael Giacchino with the award winning soundtrack for the 2009 Pixar film Up. This guy is such an amazingly talented composer…having two Grammy nominations in this year ‘Star Trek‘ and ‘Up’, with the latter winning. Two completely contrasting scores…and both deserving of the award!
