The Problems with Sherlock’s “Final Problem”

Sherlock aired its season 4 finale this Sunday in the UK, and possibly it’s final episode ever. There were some good things about “The Final Problem” but plenty more confusing plot holes to be investigated.

I’ve written an article for Creators Media (formerly Movie Pilot) trying to get the bottom of all of it. Or more accurately, throwing my hands up in total confusion and annoyance.

Take a look at the full article here.

The Late Bloomers: 7 Inspirational Celebs Who Prove It’s Not Too Late

With 2017 just around the corner, I’ve been thinking about what I want from the year ahead.

One thing I want to do is – somehow – find a way to write full time. I write for a few websites, I also have this blog and a Medium page, but most of it’s unpaid. The stuff that is paid is infrequent and in small amounts. So, to pay my rent, bills and just afford to live, I have a dull day job. In 2017, I hope to be able to quit it.

It might not seem like a big deal, but I’m 31. I’ve been in this non-writing job for a few years, and I’ve been doing non-writing jobs of one kind or another for a decade. I always think: have I left it too late?

These thoughts inspired me to write for Movie Pilot about “late bloomers”. People who had to spend years toiling away before achieving their dreams, be it in movies, TV, literature or music. If you want to know that it’s not too late, read the stories of Alan Rickman, Samuel L. Jackson, Terry Pratchett and others here.

Best F(r)iends: Is The Room Getting a Sequel?

Those who know me know that I have a lot of love for The Room, an amazing, total disaster of a movie. “The Citizen Kane of bad movies”, as it’s been called by many.

I wrote an article on Movie Pilot about why it’s so unintentionally hilarious which you can read here.

However, that’s not really what this is about. This post is about the news that The Room alumni Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero are reuniting for a movie called Best F(r)iends. It stars them both and is written by Sestero, and appears to be a dark thriller of some kind (insofar as you can tell from the trailer).

You can read my thoughts on it – and find a link to the trailer, hosted by Hollywood Reporter – in my lasted Movie Pilot article, here. And no, I don’t know why the “r” in the Best F(r)iends title is in parenthesis either.
