Watched The Railway Children (1970) by an author from
After the enforced absence of their father, the three Waterbury children move with their mother to Yorkshire, where they find themselves involved in several unexpected dramas along the railway by their new home.

A sad reminder that knowing the right people is the key to success…


My review

Watched Cujo (1983) by an author from
A friendly St. Bernard named "Cujo" contracts rabies and conducts a reign of terror on a small American town.

I did not expect this to be as good as it was to be honest. I’ve not read the book, but having read some King, I imagine that the overall tone of domestic melodrama, sprinkled with extreme trauma, is pretty much bang on.

I know one thing for sure: viewers with a child are watching a different movie to those without a child.

Can’t forgive the Mum for breaking so many horror movie rules, though. Elementary errors all round!

Oh, and I forgot to mention the uncredited four-legged star(s)! They are fantastic and I felt so sorry for them in all that awful make-up!


My review

In the future, if I am involved in interviews where the job requires knowledge of Microsoft Word, I’m going to ask candidates what the keyboard shortcut for a Page Break is.

Watched Nope (2022) by an author from
Residents in a lonely gulch of inland California bear witness to an uncanny, chilling discovery.

You make a film like Get Out, people are always going to come into your films with a certain expectation.

You make an excellent homage to a classic b-movie and people give you the “iffy” wobbly-hand of doom….
