It’s been stupidly busy over the last couple of weeks. So many events, things in my personal life, work and to top it off it’s been painfully hot. I don’t do heat. I like the winter. Writing has been slow, but I am doing it. 2467 is coming along nicely. I can’t wait for people to read it. I know that’s going to be quite a way off. There’s still about 13/14 weeks of The Broken Pocket Watch to go.
I plan on releasing The Broken Pocket Watch as a book/ebook at some point, with further editing and corrections. I just wanted to release something and share my writing. I feel like I hold back too much. I have to force myself to release stuff, and hopefully people will like it and carry on reading.
Recently I bought 2 films on DVD, which is rare for me nowadays. I take too long to watch things that I own, so promised myself only to buy things I plan on watching that week. There was an offer at tesco so I picked up Resident Evil The Final Chapter (Which for some reason wasn’t on at the local cinema) and Rings (Which was on, but I couldn’t make it).
I love the Resident Evil series; games, books and even the films(Animated or live action). The Final Chapter was the worst addition to the entire franchise by a mile and a half. It was so poorly made. The whole film felt like a montage of action scenes with a few lines of exposition here and there to give it some context. Not good. There were a couple of scenes late in the film where I started to enjoy it, where the action slowed down, but other than that it was awful. It’s apparently getting a 6 movie reboot (So much for The Final Chapter), and I really have little hope. 6 more? seriously?
The first one was a really good action/horror movie. It was fun, and had a really decent soundtrack. I watched it recently and while it seems dated, I still enjoyed it. The second and third movies are decent as well. But that’s when they should have stopped making them. I carried on watching as they diminished in quality and will continue with whatever comes next.
Rings, however, was a nice surprise. The 3rd film in the American Ring series, and the first new addition in over a decade. While it’s not that fresh and doesn’t do anything too original or surprising, it’s a decent horror film. Especially when you look around at the complete garbage that is released almost daily. So many bad horror films, both small and big budget. I can’t remember the last horror film I actually enjoyed.
I’m thinking of writing a post at some point dedicated to music. I listen to music all the time. Currently the OKNOTOK remaster of Radiohead’s Ok Computer. I’ve recently been getting into a bunch of new (to me at least) bands, and want to talk about it. I don’t know how I’d do it, but I want to.
Thanks for reading,
