Prometheus – Best films from 2012 that I haven’t seen yet

Prometheus – Best films from 2012 that I haven’t seen yet

Like many people I should imagine, when I saw the trailer for Prometheus I was blown away. Not literally, you understand. There wasn’t a freak hurricane blast, and I didn’t end up in the Wizard of Oz. It was visually stunning and brooded with dark menace. So imagine my delight when my Lovefilm discs landed on the doormat and Prometheus emerged from the packaging…

Best crisps ever – The top 27

Best crisps ever – The top 27

When people ask me what my favourite crisps of all time are, I adopt a wistful expression and begin to extol the virtues of the long departed hollow pig shaped smokey bacon crisps that were available in the eighties. I’m not sure how widely available, as generally when I mention them, people think I’m making them up…

Where’d you go Bernadette – Best books of the 21st Century

Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Marie Semple is a joy to read. When I read the blurb that accompanies the book – after reading it – I was unsurprised to see that Semple had been a writer on the outstanding TV comedy Arrested Development. Marie Semple certainly knows how to do comedy and farce.

May we be forgiven – Best books of the 21st Century

May we be forgiven – Best books of the 21st Century

May we be forgiven by A.M. Holmes is in my view, one of the best novels of the 21st century. A.M. Holmes is an astonishingly gifted writer. Holmes greatest gift is the ability to write about extreme and bizarre events in a way that makes them almost seen normal. She expertly weaves normal everyday encounters and characters into these events, in a way that make you wonder what normal actually means.

The Master – Best films I failed to see in 2012 part 4

The Master – Best films I failed to see in 2012 part 4

The Master is directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, who also directed Oscar winning “There will be blood” and the much loved “Boogie Nights”. His next movie is the first screen adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel, “Inherent Vice”, which will be highly anticipated by fans of the cult author. The Master also features the considerable acting talents of Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was also Oscar nominated… So… quite how they ended up with a film so bereft of any discernible merit, I have no idea.

Best barbecue recipes

Best barbecue recipes

It looks like we’re set for another hot weekend in the UK, and as always, when there is any hint of sunshine, the afternoon and evening air will be filled with the scent of charred sausages. In this country we don’t get that many great barbecuing days, so it perhaps no surprise that most people settle for some dodgy sausages and a few frozen burgers in a bun. We can do better than that people of Britain, and for that reason we bring you the best barbecue recipes.

Best Cycling Books

Best Cycling Books

The best cycling books are at the forefront of my mind, for three reasons.

One, we’re into the first week of the 2013 Tour de France, the greatest bike race on earth. Two, I’ve just finished reading two of the books in this list. Three, I’ve recently launched a new website www.touryorkshire.com which is all about the Tour de France, and will be focusing in on the Tour coming to Yorkshire in 2014.

Have you tried to rent a film from your local Blockbuster recently? Good luck!

If you hadn’t noticed, the way we watch films and TV is changing. Many people now consume as much video content on youtube and other online services, as they do on traditional TV. Online film streaming services offering instant movies and tv series are becoming hugely popular. Sky plus and Tivo boxes have revolutionised the way we watch mainstream television…
