Movies To Look Forward to in 2017

Wow. 2017 looks like it's going to be an awesome one for the cinema:

Martin Scorsese has a new film coming out. 2 young women in a small town realise that they are not who... NOT! Its a shoot 'em up, in a warehouse, in 1978?

Baby Driver

Edgar Wright is the director and writer behind The Cornetto Trilogy - Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and World's End - which if you haven't watched, you should.

He has created a new action movie, which would be my number 1 choice, if it had Mr Pegg in it. Which it doesn't.

However, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx are in it so it will still be awesome!


Britain's answer to the German invasion of France was to launch the British Expeditionary Force. After the First World War, being a regular member of the British Army was looked down upon. Funding for the army was cut dramatically to lower than pre-war numbers and overall, it was a bad place to be. 

So an unprepared army going into a foreign country, under-funded, under-equipped and badly led. What could possibly go wrong?

Then there is the much awaited Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2.

Baby Groot. Star-Lord. Gamora. Subtle Drax. Yondu.

Frickin' awesome.

Enjoy - and let me know what you're looking forward to.

5 1/2 TV Shows To Watch

Hi, my name is Jumblerant and I am an addict. I need my TV. I can live without it, I just prefer to indulge on a daily basis.

The talk of the town recently has been Netflix's Stranger Things. An interesting show that combines X-files, Poltergeist and basically became a Science Fiction, Supernatural fiction, Horror fiction, Mystery, set in the '80s.

A few of the shows I've been watching that have gone under the radar are somewhat less dramatic, but just as much fun;

1. Lucifer. Lucy is a simple chap, just likes to have fun and doesn't like ot commit. Except for the fact that he used to run Hell itself, he could be any nightclub owner in LA. Oh, and he's an angel.

Surprisingly funny, this show doesn't lean on the interaction between the female and male leads in a way that Castle (of blessed memory) did.

2. One Mississippi is a dark, dark humour vehicle for Tig Notaro. Definitely worth watching, if only for the amazing acting going on around her character, especially by John Rothman and Noah Harpster.

3. Killjoys is into it's 3rd season and is still a joy to watch. An action-adventure sci-fi drama set in a different galaxy, we follow what is basically a trio of sheriffs bringing justice to the lawless "Quad". There are some very interesting twists and turns that put this show apart from the run of the mill good guy v bad guy show.

4. President Graves is a retired politician who suddenly realises that his legacy is a worsened country, so he is going out there to make some more changes. Interesting, if fanciful, view of a politician who finally receives a soul. As if!

5. Ever wondered how a band tours? No? Me neither. However, Roadies shows us an interesting story behind the scenes of the Straton House Band. Sex, drugs, rock and roll for sure, but also friendship, romance, comedy and also some pretty awesome music.

Overall, there are still some awesome, original and interesting tv shows out there. Go have a look!

Game of Thrones - Your Imagination

I have many faults. I'm the first to admit it . It's that I'm 'too handsome' or 'too clever', no, I just get annoyed at stupid people.

My main issue with stupid people is when they quote me lines from a movie, and yes, the movie was excellent but guess what - pillock - you didn't write the move, you just watched it.

A prime example is last week at the office, a part-time employee who sits at a desk near me came by and said to me 'wheres the fish?'. I looked at him as if he had just been at the markers in the board room.

An adult human foot is about 28 centimetres long.
Turns out, the muppet had been watching Monty Python over the weekend and thought that line to be the weirdest one ever. That wasn't even the part that embarrassed me, as it further transpires that he had never even bothered to watch the Monty Python TV show, which most people regard as their best work.

Silly man!

 And then there are the people that think that because they have seen the film they can't now read the book, or alternatively, instead of reading the book, they'll just watch the film.



Anyway, I'm off for a can of spam and a wafer thin mint in a minute but before that, here is someone else's rant about books and TV shows. In song form.

I Nearly Crashed My Car. 3 times.

It was simple really, I'd been listening to the Popstuff podcast which always brings a broad grin to my face. The girls on the podcast are sassy, fun and in all honesty, enchanting. So when they suggested listening to another podcast I decided to give it a try.

Popstuff podcast

The podcast they referred to sounded harmless enough, 'My brother, my brother and I'. An 'advicecast' whatever that may be. Probably 3 siblings talking about something or other with the bigger ones bullying the youngest one into joining, and no doubt, they'd be making him spill all of his embarrassing life stories.

Worth a listen at least?

My Brother, My Brother and Me is an advicecast for the modern era featuring three real-life brothers: Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy. For roughly five-sixths of an hour each week, with new episodes dropping every Monday, the brothers McElroy will answer any query sent our way, each fielding questions falling into our respective areas of expertise. We operate like a streamlined, advice-generating machine. It’s both terrifying and humbling to behold.

So I did. And thats when I nearly crashed the car. 

3 times. 

In a  period of twenty minutes.

Sweet, sweet listening indeed.

Anchorman 2 Teaser Trailer

I love me some Will Ferrell, in my opinion one of the funniest men on the planet today, he repeatedly pushes the boundary of comedy in a way that even the best improv stand up hasn't done in a long time (beginning when Drew Carey beat humour to death as the host on Whose Line Is It Anyway).

Anyhoo, mix Mr. Ferrel with other comedic talents such as Dave Koechner, Paul Rudd and His Comedic Highness the Steve of Carell, we just know that Anchorman 2 is going to be one long laughfest. With a little bit of 'oh no, you didn't' in the middle somewhere.

So here, for your viewing pleasure, a little teaser for Anchorman 2.
