Interstellar…….

On the weekend after settling down to brunch (full English at lunch time) i put on Interstellar.

Now for all those who have no idea what i am talking about, this is a Sci fi movie with a …..well yes its been done before but this is different.

Okay cliff notes on the movie. The Earth is dying and a group of scientists have found a possible way of getting the people of Earth of the planet, all they need to do is find the right one. see simple.

The acting  performances by Micheal Caine, Anne Hathaway were fantastic and a spectacular performance from Matthew McConaughey. The effects were outstanding and so was the camera work.

The direction from Chris Nolan was as ever spot on.

Got your appetites going yet? Gooood.

The start of the film is slow but enough to let you know what’s happening, little tit bits that get you interested, then it starts to get to the gritty stuff, OK still interested….hungry for more?

To summarize, this was more confusing than 2001 Space Odyssey. it leaves you with your brain pouring out of your ears and leaving you shouting what the f…….??????

Now not being one to say never go and see a film, all i will say it find someone who has it and then try it. if you like it then you belong on the Big Bang Theory.

Thanks too all.

Well the weekend is here once again and I hope everyone is having a great time. Just a little thankyou to all my followers out there, your support is much appreciated. Have a great weekend and hope to hear more from you all.

Best wishes.

WORLD BOOK DAY.

I know this is late but hey that’s life.

Okay, so the 5th March saw World Book day, an international time to celebrate books. Brilliant idea we all scream in the literary world. However like most great things some people only take notice one day a year, (veterans day, mothers day…you get the idea).

I was asked to go to a library and give a talk on my books and the life of an Author (excuse men while i change my shorts), There was a good turn out for the small place and it was informative for both parties. but what got me was how many people until that day never knew where the library was!

Books are important to not just for us but for future generations, it is our history, knowledge and brilliant works of fiction(and yes i am talking about mine.lol) that we hope our children’s children will be reading.

libraries

So encourage your children to read and if they appear to have a love for writing do all you can to help them on their journey of inspiration.  More can be had from the inside of pages than it can from a games console.

Go on go to a book shop or library and get a book out and enjoy your self, you maybe surprised.

World book day…

A couple of days ago i was asked to got to a local library and give a book signing and authors chat. This was brilliant PR for me but also for the library. As i spoke to the brilliant staff i found that not everyone knew were it was let alone it existed.

Now world book day is to promote books, authors and libraries, as well a book stores but i felt slightly disheartened the fact you had to have a special day to promote the fact.

Children and adults dressed up as their favorite character, a fun day was had by all.
