Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

I went into a charity shop and picked up an Octonauts (My youngest daughter’s current fave!) DVD. The lady, who literally threw some free toys at my daughter, advised that DVDs were three for £1. I added a Mickey Mouse Christmas DVD then looking at the other options, struggled to identify another one worth buying.Continue reading “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs”

Finding Jack Charlton

There’s a moment in this film that really hit me. Without giving too much away, it involved Jack Charlton (Obviously!), a laptop and Paul McGrath.

Baggio: The Divine Ponytail

I’m looking forward to seeing this… But I don’t have Netflix! I seem to recall watching the opening ceremony of USA ’94 live. Diana Ross missed a penalty and the goal broke! As for the tournament itself, I had a BBC video of all the goals which is how the competition imprinted itself in myContinue reading “Baggio: The Divine Ponytail”

The votes are in! Firstly, I’d like to thank everybody that voted… my nephew and one other person! As you can see from the above graphic, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield tie for first prize with incumbent Spidey Tom Dutchy Holland unable to register even a single vote. Personally, I’m a Maguire fan but haveContinue reading “Who is Your Favourite Spider-Man? The Results”

Who is Your Favourite Spider-Man?

Many others have also donned the costume in the gears before. But who’s your favourite? Many thanks for voting and look outContinue reading “Who is Your Favourite Spider-Man?”
