Book review: Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy

You don't have to be a film graduate to know that the film industry is dominated by men, in terms of production, audience, and the stories told. Fortunately there is one particularly popular, decades-old franchise, which values its women: Star Wars. Super-nerd Amy Ratcliffe has produced a stunning anthology celebrating 75 female characters from across… Continue reading Book review: Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy

I adore anything which combines my love of stationery with any of my other passions, namely books and films, so I was super excited to hear about Abrams + Chronicle's new Studio Ghibli range. The collection launched earlier this week with (ridiculously freaking adorable) My Neighbour Totoro postcards* and notecards*. The 30 postcards come in… Continue reading Stationery porn: My Neighbour Totoro

Camera! Alice! The Thrilling True Adventures of the First Woman Filmmaker* seeks to rectify that. You may not know that I'm something… Continue reading Book review: Lights! Camera!

Then I went off on tangent after tangent and figured what the heck! So... I just got… Continue reading Some thoughts on Mamma Mia 2 (spoilers)

Book review: Richard Ayoade presents The Grip of Film by Gordy LaSure

I love Richard Ayoade. I thought he was great in The IT Crowd, I love seeing him on panel shows (particularly alongside Noel Fielding) and I thought Submarine was awesome. Oh, and I flipping love Travel Man. But I'm not a fan of some of his earlier work, particularly Garth Marenghi's Dark Place and AD/BC:… Continue reading Book review: Richard Ayoade presents The Grip of Film by Gordy LaSure

Not gonna lie, it's been a rough week. I've spent the last nine days battling a cold with a cough so bad it's actually made me vomit.

Blogosphere, Man Down and Christmas crafts #LittleLoves

I don't know what it is about growing up but it's really easy for Christmas to lose it's magic. Until you have children, that is. I felt all kinds of festive on Sunday when I watched my son and nephew decorating the tree at my mum's house. They're two and a half and three and… Continue reading Blogosphere, Man Down and Christmas crafts #LittleLoves

Turning 30, a bit of nostalgia and Hunt for the Wilderpeople #LittleLoves

Turning 30, coupled with re-watching a TV show you grew up with and realising it launched nearly 20 years old, makes for a rather nostalgic week. Here's a look at the last seven days at Casa de Cornish Geek. Read: I've been on annual leave this week so no time for books or magazines.
