Zack Snyder's directorial debut was a zombie movie, 2004's remake of Dawn of the Dead, a movie that I really liked so his return to the undead genre, especially one featuring Dave Bautista leading a team on a heist in a zombie ravaged Las Vegas sounded right up my street.

The latest Disney animated movie is a gorgeous, gripping and entertaining fantasy adventure which continues the studio's current hot streak. While it lacks some of the traditional Disney aspects (songs and a major villain) it continues their ability to tell fantastic, moving stories with likeable, memorable characters.

I think one of the things would surprise teenage Chris is how much of a proud Cymro I have become as I got older. I support independence, I vote Plaid Cymru and I get angry about the way my country, and its language, are routinely insulted, dismissed or ignored. And it seems I'm not alone … Continue reading Book Review: Cofiwch Dryweryn by Mari Emlyn
This is the second book by Guy N. Smith that I've read this year, having really enjoyed Night of the Crabs, This book is another fast moving, pulpy horror novel, but does have a major flaw. Namely, the hero of the story Gordon Hall. He's not the most likeable bloke, and while some of this … Continue reading Book Review: Werewolf By Moonlight by Guy N. Smith
Monthly update on health and wellbeing, and I mention this twitter account which runs best album polls which I've found a good way to pass the time. https://www.youtube.com/embed/tOGJx298pBk Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
The attic was the last room, and he'd cleared most of it when he found the album.It had a white cover, the ones downstairs had been red and blue.

Uncle Terry had a type obviously.Each one … Continue reading Flash Friday: The White Album
