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 […]

2015 In Review…

Goodbye 2015, hello and welcome to the brand new year of 2016! I hope everyone had a really wonderful New Year’s Eve. I spent my New Year’s by accidentally falling asleep quite early and then waking up at 12:02am, and completely missing the countdown. To be fair, I had a big day at work on […]

November 2015 Favourites

Whilst internal politics at MI6 threaten […]

March 2015 Favourites

It’s definitely the month that I’ve been the least active here in the entire history of the blog, probably because work has been completely crazy and I’ve been coming home and just collapsing asleep like some kind of robot with depleted batteries. But I promise I have been reading everyone’s […]

Thoughts On… Quantum of Solace (2008)

The twenty second James Bond film, and the second for Daniel Craig as the infamous secret agent, Quantum of Solace (2008) is probably best known for its overtly flowery title which a lot of people didn’t really understand. The story is as follows: James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious […]
