Big Brother Hurt

As far as coincidences go, this one is slightly creepy, I must admit. There I was, writing a rant about a certain book, including some remarks about its not so great movie adaptation and two days later the sad news of John Hurt‘s passing hits us. funny enough, if you had asked me his name […]

Prometheus has landed!

It’s been a couple of “bad” days those last three days with only 3 hours of sleep or so each night and the “spiral of pain and insomnia” tightening its prongs a bit every day, so yesterday I almost ended up going to bed at 5 in the afternoon because I was so tired and […]

More clips, more Awesome!

Another Day, another Trailer

The pre-Christmas goodness continues with some more trailers, so let’s have a look. First something not mentioned in my last post which I stumbled upon while watching those other trailers.
