Slightly flinchy at times. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in a movie about aliens? Is anyone actually surprised? Most probably think Paul is the third part in Frost-Pegg-Wright’s hugely successful and lauded ’Blood and Ice Cream’ trilogy when it in fact is a buddy-movie by Pegg and Frost alone. According to Pegg the idea originated [...]


Anathema live @ The Slade Rooms Wolverhampton, 16/02/2011

Anathema with Awake by Design and North Atlantic Oscillation First off, I'd like to apologise for the absence of new posts on this site.

The thought occurred to me when I was watching The Men Who Stare At Goats, an ensemble comedy starring George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges, men who are interested in [...]

The American

I have not seen Control, Anton Corbijn’s earlier movie, so the idea of a famous photographer directing a movie is quite interesting.
