Starring: Lon Chaney

On an opening note, during the opening days of this challenge I am yet to watch a colour film and last night was the third night running where I have watched a silent movie.

Being a massive fan of the musical theatre production of the same name this was...

Night 3/31
Film of choice: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Starring: John Barrymore
Year: 1920

Once again this is one of those films you can watch and know exactly why it is considered a "classic". John Barrymore's performance is amazing, his expressions help tell the story in the silent movie format and the transformation appears simple - I am sure it wasn't - but...

Night 2/31
Film of choice: Metropolis
Director: Fritz Lang
Year: 1927

Once again this is the first time I have seen this film and I guess this is the point of the challenge; to finally see all those horror films I have been meaning to see.
This is certainly a beautiful film, visually and musically, and to have a two hour silent movie is...

Night 1/31
Film of choice: White Zombie
Starring: Bela Lugosi
Year: 1932

Despite having the '50 Horror Classic' box set for almost two years, this is the first time I have seen this and I can see why it's a classic. Bela Lugosi is ofcourse fantastic and those moments where you just see him staring at you, as he controls his zombie army...

So..."SGUK Amsterdamage", kind of sounds like the members of SGUK were going to damage Amsterdam with their craziness but instead I feel as if it was us who got damaged.

I have not had that much fun in such a long time. Everyone and everything was awesome!

Day One was quite intense. Waking up early, making sure you have everything when you are not...

So how did last weekend and week go for me?

As I said before, this World Cup tournament has been very surprising and unpredictable. However Germany beating England was not either, Germany are a very solid team and England have not ever performed as a unit, so it would have surprising if England won in my opinion. This weekend the surprises have not stopped, Netherlands...

I felt it was time for a new blog but I don't really have much to say.

The only things that have been on my mind recently are the things I want / need, and there are far too many of them to list here, but if you want to...

Hello everyone, it has been a few weeks since my last blog, as it has been a pretty busy three weeks for me.

Sci-Fi-London 9 started on Wednesday 28 April. The first night was very insane, as we have the Arthur C. Clarke Science Fiction Book Awards and the UK Premier of 'Splice', both of which meant the cinema was packed with VIPs (Novelists, Judges...
