RIP Brian Aldiss

Very sad to hear of the passing of Brian Aldiss. He was one of the greats of Science Fiction and a true gentleman. Alan and I were lucky enough to get into his talk at the Worldcon when it was in London a few years ago. He was, as always, a brillant speaker and kept the audience entranced. He recoun...

Arrival

I meant to write about this last week when we went to see it. Hopefully, you have all seen it by now, we were a bit late as Alan has been so busy recently. In fact we saw one of the last performances before it left our local cinema. That aside, we both really enjoyed this film. It is a very deep and...

Star Wars: Rogue One

Alan and I saw this this morning and really enjoyed it. We saw it in 3D and it was worth it, it isn't often you will hear us say that. This is the darkest Star Wars film in the franchise and for me personally, it is the best film too. If you haven't seen it yet then make sure you make time to do so ...

Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Alan and I saw it just before Christmas. We both loved it, but I could have done with a box of Kleenex! I can't believe they killed him off (my favourite character), but maybe they were worried about his (the actor's) health. Anyway, we saw it in 3D and thought it worth it. There aren't too many fil...

Re: That was the Con 27, that was.

Just to let everyone know I have now paid the donation to the Orangutan Foundation UK. I have left it until now as they were taking part in "The Big Give" event this weekend, it means that the donated money is doubled by match funding. It started yesterday at midday and had a second day today, also ...

Re: Armadacon 25th Anniversary Fan Film

And another update on the film! More filming took place last weekend and thanks to the good weather the live action footage for the opening sequence has been completed (this needed out door filming so rain and high winds were not wanted). We also managed to finish the live action footage of Chris an...

Re: So which book(s) are you reading at the moment?

I have just finished reading "The Martian" by Andy Weir. I got given it for my birthday a few days ago (after some less than subtle hints) and couldn't put it down, I haven't read a book where this was the case for quite a while. If you haven't read it then I can thoroughly recommend it and suggest ...

Re: Armadacon 25th Anniversary Fan Film

Just a little more news for you all. We had a very successful couple of days filming green screen shots last weekend. Many thanks to Chris and Jenny for putting up with us and all the filming gear. VFX work does not make for travelling light! Also a big thank you to Samba and Tango, (their cats), fo...

Re: Armadacon 25th Anniversary Fan Film

Hi all, Apologies for not having been very active of late, I've been a bit under the weather. First a leg ulcer (my second or third, I've lost count over the years), and now I've gone and done something fundamental to my left ankle, (just as I was thinking I would soon be able to dig the allotment a...

Re: RIP Leonard Nimoy

Very sad news indeed. He was a very accomplished photographer too, I'm not sure many people know that. He always came across as a nice person. He will be missed.
