Now I might be going crazy or I might just be reading too much into things but I think this season writers have a thing for Doula's. Now I'm not talking about every writer and like I said I might be reading too much into things but in the past week I've seen Doula's on not one but TWO comedies. To me that's too much Doula for this dude. However I can see why they've started to focus on Doula's. Look at the job description: "Doula" (pronounced "doola") is a Greek word meaning "woman servant or caregiver". It now refers to an experienced woman who offers emotional and practical support to a woman (or couple) before, during and after childbirth. A doula believes in “mothering the mother” - enabling a woman to have the most satisfying and empowered time that ...

Kickstarter Film Fest

For the past 2 years Kickstarter has been helping UK artists and filmmakers bring their projects to life. The team at Kickstarter have previously screened a film festival 4 times in Brooklyn with an assortment these films and animations from all over the world. For the past week however for the first time they brought the festival to London with a load of events and of course screenings. As most of you who have followed my blog from the start know, Kickstarter had a big hand to play in me actually starting one after I backed Ghost which is the platform my blog is hosted on. Over the past year or so I have backed a few projects including a film project called Kung Fury. When Kickstarter sent out an email inviting all backers to the festival I jumped at ...

Guardians of the Galaxy

One of Marvel's previously lesser-known comics that rose to stardom with their film feature that was a box office hit this summer is Guardians of the Galaxy. It's been such a hit with fans of all ages that it's getting it's own animated series as is a trend with most Marvel properties that hit it off with fans. I'll admit I was a little sceptical as to whether this would be done right based on previous Marvel animated series that have come out in recent years. In fact most animated series from both DC and Marvel in recent years have not left me with a sweet after taste, more of a sense of wasted time... However some early test footage of the series has been released at NYCC and I have to admit that I am quite looking forward to ...

The Apprentice

It's no secret I don't really like to watch UK programmes but I am one of the many people who just can't resist watching the idiocy magic that is The Apprentice. The Candidates Yet again this year's crop of candidates are bigger, brighter...and brasher. As always they have larger than life personalities that have been carefully selected to create an entertaining few weeks of "business" for us. In reality no one would put these people together in a room but we get the pleasure to cheer and curse each week as we watch. Having just put myself through all 20 of the candidate videos I have put together two lists. Front runners to get the chop first and the cream of the crop. These lists are based purely on what I've seen in their videos Front Runners to get ...

This is a very late review of September's Loot Crate. Instead of reviewing the crate mainly I'm instead going to talk about the ridiculousness that is Royal Mail and USPS who both managed to lose track of a parcel which clearly had a tracking number on it. As a result I got my crate 2 weeks late and now have another on the way to replace the one that was thought to be lost. Now I don't work in logistics or anything but surely the reason packages have these tracking numbers on them is to be able to follow the package's journey so that if it gets lost or misplaced at a certain point it is easy to track it down. I tracked it as far as leaving the US thanks to USPS' tracking number but Royal Mail..."nope that ...

Stalker

Most of you probably won't have heard of the new and very timely show that's just come out called Stalker or maybe you've heard of it and because of the name ignored or avoided it. I didn't avoid it and was pleasantly (not sure that's the right word) surprised by the content. Hitting close to home Stalker explores the idea that stalking can happen to anyone not just celebrities and kicks off the series with some slightly unnerving scenes. In this post I'll explore whether the show is a good or a bad thing after some critics have hit out at it making the very real threat of stalking into entertainment. This post will include small spoilers so read on at your own risk. Cast This series boasts a mixture of some familiar faces as well as an actor I ...
