Game of Thrones – Season 7 Episode 4: “The Spoils of War”

It’s episode four! We’re approximately halfway through the season now. This was possibly the perfect episode for the middle of the season – something to give us the kind of action we’ve been looking forward to seeing since the end of season one, when Daenerys’ dragons were born.

Game of Thrones – Season 7 Episode 3: “The Queen’s Justice”

Episode three of season seven of Game of Thrones! Before I get into my review, it must be noted that time is moving past at an accelerated rate in terms of the season’s pacing thus far. I can’t remember this much happening so quickly, ever. Things that would normally take chapters in the books are […]

Game of Thrones – Season 7 Episode 2: “Stormborn”

Episode two! Unfortunately due to some adverse circumstances this week, this write-up is quite late. But perhaps what might be better than watching a thrilling, crazily violent and dramatic television show, is reading the comprehensive recap of an episode of television that you might have already watched seven days ago; or you might have already […]

Game of Thrones – Season 7 Episode 1: “Dragonstone”

I’m back again with the newest recap of Game of Thrones! It’s season seven – technically the last season, but it’s split into two half-seasons of seven and six episodes each. Even though I accidentally caught some huge (and potentially completely destructive) spoilers on Reddit, which I half-regret, I’m optimistic for this final season. In […]

I Need To Talk About Twin Peaks (Season 3 Episode 8)

Holy moly. I know I initially said I wasn’t going to recap the new Twin Peaks episodes, because Game of Thrones is my main recapping responsibility and I can’t add another recapping job to my repertoire. But my god. Season three, episode eight. The tagline of the episode is “Gotta light?”, and I think everyone […]

Five Things You Need to Know Before You Watch the ‘Twin Peaks’ Reboot

To say I was excited and extremely hyped up for this reboot of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks franchise is the biggest understatement of the year. I was probably more excited for this than season seven of Game of Thrones, and that’s a ridiculous thing for me to say. I’ve loved Twin Peaks for a very, […]

Five Things I Love About HBO’s ‘The Young Pope’

I took a week off work after getting married, and during that week I had the opportunity to binge watch a whole bunch of different television shows and films. I also took the time to think and write about things that had been on my mind for quite some time. But the one piece of […]

My Movie Alphabet (Vol. 2)

During the month of May, there’s a great blogathon happening over at Mettel Ray, in celebration of a most fabulous seventh blogiversary! It’s called My Movie Alphabet Volume 2 (since volume one of My Movie Alphabet blogathon happened in 2012) – where bloggers make an alphabet of their favourite film things, whether that’s movies, actors, […]

Eyes On Film

Sometimes there are certain visual motifs in film that really stick out and become significant to the viewer. I was rewatching Spectre (2015) the other day, and whilst watching the opening title sequence with its brilliant theme by Sam Smith, I noted a film trope that caught my eye. No pun intended. What I noticed […]

On Location: Bond in New Orleans

“Who’s funeral is it?” … “Yours.” My partner/fiance Adam (aka Mr Film Grimoire) is currently finishing up a whirlwind boys’ trip with his friends in the U.S. of A – they’ve been roadtripping across the majestic land of America from Los Angeles to New Orleans and having (from what I’ve heard) a lot of fun.
