Social media break for a week or two. No biggie other than I’m aware that it’s too much of a distraction from my work and thoughts. It’s going to be a test to see if I can kick the habit for a short while and see how I feel about it. Be nice to each other!

If the number of lightning cables I’ve bought is an indication, this IS why they’re a trillion dollar company

No, but that film is certainly due a rewatch for me.

And sorry that it’s been so long with my next book! These things are such hard work but I’m super excited by “Coal Face.” I think that as a story it goes to places that we don’t see too often in many comics and that’s why it’s been such a difficult journey.

Because I’m attending the Titan Books/Forbidden Planet 40th birthday celebration I thought that I’d check on Amazon for “Surface Tension.” I saw that there were lots of very nice reviews! If you were one of them then THANK YOU very much indeed! :)

Definitely not that film (as good as that is). I seem to recall there were other famous European directors of the time playing themselves in the film. Maybe I’m getting it muddled up with something else.

Yep. Maybe it was a weird fever dream. But if it was - it was a great film that only I saw. :)

Speaking of Sutherland, maybe you can help me. I watched a film on late night TV long ago in which Sutherland played a scriptwriter living in Italy (I think). I’ve tried googling the description but nothing comes up. Ring any bells or did I simply dream it?

Blimey you must have been really politicking today if you had to resort to a tiny cute kitten to offset your ‘political carbon footprint!’

Last night I enjoyed reading the book that comes with Zombie Flesh Eaters, in particular the script pages for the lost scene and the happier ending. The book also covers the production history and the film’s cuts/prosections within the UK legal system.

Hey, I’m doing a thing in London in August and it’s a big birthday party! I’ll be dashing over from Frightfest just for this, so it’ll be an action packed weekend of monsters and ghoulish delights! Come along and join the fun!

And yes, I get just as much value reading about “Zombie Flesh Eaters” than I do learning about the history of the lost classic “Napoleon.” It’s all creativity, ideas, vision and cinematic history but in different forms.

You get to read some great essays and interviews. Some feature rare production art, set photos and reprints of vintage programs and script extracts. You don’t get this sort on shonky VOD. If you buy these sorts of releases then what are your favourites?

Does anyone read the books that come with brilliant blu ray box sets from the likes of Masters of Cinema, Arrow Video and BFI? I do and I have to say that I always appreciate the effort. You don’t get this level of love or value in big studio releases.
