FilmThere are quite a few movies I am looking forward to this year. In fact the list is so long I am going to go with just a top 4. As usual no particular order on this.
The Road - Now I haven’t read the book, which I admit is unusual for me it being post apocalyptic and all, but I really like the look of the film. I am a big fan of The Vigg and the film looks really fucking dark so should be right up my street. It’s on release in the UK real soon so I will scribble down a review at a later date.
Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll -To clarify Hit Me with Your Rhythm Stick was the first vinyl I ever bought at the tender age of 4 years old. The B-side was a track called There Ain’t Half been some Clever Bastards. Ian Dury and the Blockheads music had a profound effect growing up. Looking forward to seeing Andy Serkis take on the role.
The A-Team – Is an explanation really required? Hopefully this will be like watching an episode of the show. Tell you what there better be a fucking montage where they make a fully functioning tank out of a milkfloat, two weasels and some blue tac.
Tron 2, Tron Legacy, Tr2n, Tron 2.0 – Whatever the fuck they are calling it this week. It’s about computers and software and sci-fi and all things fucking geeky. I am so there.
As I said there are many more but I don’t want to go on about them to much, not yet anyway.
booksThe Five Greatest Warriors – Matthew Reilly does great action novels. The pace is always breathtaking and the conclusion always leaves you wanting more (in a good way).
The Silver Skull – A new novel by Mark Chadbourn is always a reason for celebration. Those lucky blighters out in the colonies already have it damn them *shakes fist*
Blood Royal and Dark Side – Not one but two new Pax Britannia novels from Jonathan Green. How very splendid.
healthThis year I have set myself the task of cycling 500 kilometres. This is around the distance from where I live to Paris. Hopefully I should be able to manage this feet of endurance as long as my back holds out. Should also improve my general health as well.
Anywho on that bombshell I’m off to begin the trek. Wish me luck
