Jenson’s Christmas wish list 2016

As much as I love writing my birthday/Christmas wish list, I think I like writing Jenson's more! We've already got him sorted for Christmas (plus a couple of family members - I'm so organised!) but there are a few things we've come across that he'd love if the opportunity arose. Paw Patrol blocks, Tesco, £21.91… Continue reading Jenson’s Christmas wish list 2016

Item of the day: Hitchcock/Truffaut DVD from Amazon

Here's one for the film geeks - Hitchcock/Truffaut. You can't get better than a DVD interview (The Interview) featuring two of the masters of cinema. And it's out on Monday! How's this for a synopsis? In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind… Continue reading Item of the day: Hitchcock/Truffaut DVD from Amazon

My Christmas list

Last week I shared Jenson's Christmas list and this week I'm sharing my growing list/Pinterest board. My birthday is two months away and Luke, the lovely boyfriend that he is, has already started shopping, so I'm not being that much of an eager beaver by putting together a Pinterest list of favourites for friends and… Continue reading My Christmas list

Item of the day: Guardians of the Galaxy steelbook bluray from Zavvi

I don't buy a lot of DVDs these days (I used to be quite addicted - we have about 1,000) but when I do I'm all about the steelbook blurays. And why wouldn't I be? They're a bit special and totally appeal to the film geek in me. My new faves at the mo are… Continue reading Item of the day: Guardians of the Galaxy steelbook bluray from Zavvi

Item of the day: Star Wars steelbook blurays from HMV

Steelbook editions can make otherwise unappealing films suddenly very attractive. It pains me to say this, as a film geek, that I have never seen the original Star Wars trilogy. Don't worry, I plan on rectifying this before the release of JJ Abrams' flick and this steelbook bluray collection from HMV has definitely caught my… Continue reading Item of the day: Star Wars steelbook blurays from HMV

Top ten steelbooks from Zavvi

I love steelbooks. Given the option, if I'm buying a new release, I'll get the super-duper, super-sexy bluray steelbook every time. If you plan on owning a film, you might as well go for the best version going. Plus the steelbooks look so damn awesome if (like me) you choose to make your DVD collection… Continue reading Top ten steelbooks from Zavvi

Film night

Last night I indulged in one of my favourite activities: film night. I even had a bowl of popcorn on hand, thanks to my new handy popcorn maker*! There's something about drawing the curtains, sprawling across the sofa and stuffing handfuls of popcorn into your mouth, with the light of a 42-inch television casting the room in… Continue reading Film night

Coming soon to DVD: Sunshine and Brazil steelbook

Ahhh! More pretty steelbooks! Up next (released on Monday) are Danny Boyle's Sunshine and Terry Gilliam's Brazil. I have to admit, I haven't seen Sunshine since I saw it in the cinema. I remember being completely blown away by it and a bit freaked out by the ending. It definitely needs a re-watch. And Brazil… Continue reading Coming soon to DVD: Sunshine and Brazil steelbook

Coming soon to DVD: Game of Thrones Season 3

I think I'm the only geek in the world who hasn't seen Game of Thrones yet. It's on the list and I intend to catch up this year - just as soon as I'm done with Castle, The Mentalist, The Walking Dead, Arrow, Elementary... and Chuck! I've still not seen Season 5. Then there's Breaking… Continue reading Coming soon to DVD: Game of Thrones Season 3
