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 17

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 has actually turned into highlights of the week. Finally got around to watching Max Mad: Fury Road….and if you haven’t seen it…do! It channels the essence of the original movies, with the practical effects and it really delivers. Tom Hardy was stuck in Bane mode for the first two acts…but Charlize Theron holds the helm. I also got to see Jurassic World…and what can I say…I may have cried when within the first 15 mins. The only thing I hated about the movie was the last 15 mins or so..it was like they had been writing the the script for the last 10 years and a half an hour before the deadline they scribbled down the 15 minute ending….but it is still worth seeing over and over again..


Soundtrack of the week this week has to the return of Jurassic Park by the legendary John Williams….I don’t think this need an explanation, only the part where I listen to the soundtrack while following the musical score…That probably need some explaining…but you won’t get it.

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!
