Footrot Flats - A New Zealand classic Footrot Flats - A New Zealand classic

Britain is on a roll with live-action / CGI versions of their classic storybook characters that have been around for decades. Paddington is a delight, Peter Rabbit was far better than I anticipated, and Christopher Robin looks like it will be a heart-wrenching success too.

Kitster - A Star Wars Story Kitster - A Star Wars Story

I follow actor Rahul Kohli on Twitter, he plays Dr Ravi Chakrabarti on iZombie, and he can be quite amusing indeed while he swears at everyone and everything like a drunken sailor.

Aurebesh Decoded (updated) Aurebesh Decoded (updated)

In today’s io9 there is a post revealing some details about a character in Solo, gleaned from a LEGO set. I was looking at how cool the character is, with his animal skull helmet with words carved in it, and wondered if anybody had figured out what the words were.

Doctor Who: Logo-polis Doctor Who: Logo-polis

I was looking at the new Doctor Who logo that was released a week or so back, and wondered to myself if I could track down the typeface they used. Maybe it would be easy for fans to make it themselves, for scaling purposes or something.

Have You Got A "Clue"? Have You Got A "Clue"?

I was on Twitter and this image of the cast of the movie Clue, painted as caricatures by Jeff Delgado, came up. Reduced to stylised prominent facial features, it made me look at the actors in a new way, and made me wonder who I would cast in a remake, if I wanted contemporary actors who looked very similar and had…

TV Poetry TV Poetry

Earlier this year, when I was bored, I had a melody in my head and started writing poetry to that tune about some TV shows. I thought I’d share those poems with you now.

I made another fake movie poster I made another fake movie poster

Instead of doing proper work that I ought to be doing, this afternoon I wasted my time on another poster for a movie that doesn’t exist. After a fan tweeted to Karen Gillan that she’d watch a movie with her in it even if it was about postage stamps, I came up with a plot and cast for just such a film.

Tim Omundson unwell after suffering a stroke [updated] Tim Omundson unwell after suffering a stroke [updated]

Tim Omundson, one of my favourite character actors from such shows as Psych, Galavant, Supernatural, and an upcoming stint on Lucifer, amongst many others, suddenly went quiet on Twitter recently, and it seems it was due to a serious illness.

Not Coming To A Cinema Anywhere Near You Not Coming To A Cinema Anywhere Near You

One of the things I like to do for fun is make movie posters, which would be a fine career choice except the posters I make are for movies that aren’t being made.

They'll never stop trying to make Video Game movies They'll never stop trying to make Video Game movies

After this article about Missile Command and Centipede movies and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed, Warcraft, and Tomb Raider, it’s clear the hope for a decent movie based on a video game will never die.

Stephen Fry to leave QI, new Host will be Sandi Toksvig Stephen Fry to leave QI, new Host will be Sandi Toksvig

As we are about to embark on series M of QI, the UK panel show where our knowledge of interesting facts is reassessed, poked and prodded and laughed at, which will be starting this Friday UK time, news has just hit that this will be perennial host Stephen Fry’s final series, and he will bow to frequent guest Sandi…

TBT: Binge-watching an old show - Early Edition TBT: Binge-watching an old show - Early Edition

The 1990s had a lot of genre shows, but most were space operas, and most of those were Star Trek spin-offs. Having come out of the tail end of shows like Quantum Leap, and heading into new ground with shows like the X-Files, there was now room for a gentle show with only mild supernatural elements. For example: Early…

A teaser for the rebooted Danger Mouse has appeared, and it pokes a little bit of fun at a familiar teaser of recent times.

Serenada would have liked this - "Supernatural" song parody Serenada would have liked this - "Supernatural" song parody

Hannah and Hilly Hindi (that’s their real names) have been making names for themselves in nerd-dom making great parody music videos of geeky properties like Doctor Who and Lord of the Rings. This is their take on the TV series Supernatural and Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off. Stay tuned to the end.

Imagine Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence in a movie together... Imagine Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence in a movie together...

...and Jennifer Lawrence's character was a confident, super skilled, athletic hero, while Chris Pratt's character was the weaker one who needed rescuing. Is there an existing IP, a comic or video game or book or an old TV series, where they could perfectly slot into those roles?
