Creators Media (formerly Movie Pilot) recently asked for story submissions on the subject of #DatingTruths to be potentially curated into a fanzine.
For my entry, I spoke about how ignoring advice and NOT taking things slow was the best decision I ever made.

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.
I was critical of Sherlock’s season four opener The Six Thatchers, but I really enjoyed it’s follow-up, the thoroughly excellent The Lying Detective.
Toby Jones’ creepy performance as villain-of-the-week Culverton Smith made the episode, but there was plenty more to enjoy. You can read my full review over on my Movie Pilot Creators page here.
Sherlock’s new series/season started on January 1st wit the episode “The Six Thatchers”. Was it worth the wait?
I wrote a review for Creators Media (formerly Movie Pilot), though I felt it was more of a collage than a cohesive episode. You can read the full review here.
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.
A few days ago, on December 19th, the first teaser trailer for the Blade Runner sequel (now titled Blade Runner 2049) dropped.
I wrote about this first trailer in an article for Movie Pilot which you can read here.
You can read an earlier piece I wrote about it back in June (before we knew the official title) here, too.
Over on Movie Pilot, I collated everything we know about the new season (or series, if you’re British like me) of Sherlock. It’s coming back on January 1st, so get caught up!
Check out the full roundup of information here.
Everyone loves It’s A Wonderful Life, right? It’s my favourite Christmas movie (yes, even if we’re counting Die Hard) and I wrote an article for Movie Pilot explaining the main reason it became such a festive staple is because of a clerical error made in the 1970’s.
You can read the full article here.
I’m a huge fan of sci-fi, but sometimes I feel like there aren’t enough intelligent science fiction films about.
Thankfully, Arrival has…er…arrived, and it’s spectacular.
I saw it last night and I’ve written a review on Movie Pilot. I called it “a triumph of smart sci-fi” and you can read my full review here.
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.
