What historical event would you attend if you were able to time travel?

by on Jan.25, 2012, under Plinky

The building of stone henge, just to see HOW they did it, even if we couldn’t communicate enough to find out WHY they did it… And exactly what it’s used for…

Or stealing a Red Dwarf joke, i’d go to Dallas 21/11/62 stand on the grassy knoll and shout “Duck”

And if it was a TARDIS rather than a Time Machine (moves in space too) i’d land on the moon and wave hello to Neil Armstrong 🙂

If you could be involved in making a movie, would you rather act or direct?

by on Jan.18, 2012, under Plinky

I have acted in the past, when i was younger (teens and before) but i’m quite shy really, and even though i used to be in a band and show off on stage, i’m not sure i could act in a film. Although if someone wants to pay me to try i would do 😉 but i would rather be behind the scenes, not just a director, anything else, camera man (love doing photos) or even set design or such like… i have tried writing a few times but as you can probably tell by my long blogs, i’m not the most verbose person. It seems to be writing problem really, i can talk better than i can write.

I would like to direct, i think reading some scripts, i can see some good ideas in my mind, but it’s being able to put them on film (as was) but i doubt i’ll get the chance

Whats your favorite scary movie?

by on Jan.04, 2012, under Plinky

Well the title does take you down the Scream route, and therefor Wes Craven & the Freddy series, most of which are enjoyable as they are, if a bit laughable now.. Along with the friday the 13th movies and the later Halloween films, they are just fun.

Now remakes, the Friday the 13th remake & Texas Chainsaw masacre were just comical, more splatter gore than horror, although i really did enjoy the Rob Zombie remake of Halloween, who has also done a few other really good horror films, my favourite of which is The Devils Rejects.

Another good remake and original film, was The Grudge, mostly cos the remake was made by the same people who made the original, with a minor plot change from the original Japanese film, whih along with The Ring Series (and not a horror but Battle Royale) are amoungst some of my favourite films (add the Korean film Oldboy in too for the collection)

And finally, thanks to a musical friend who supplied some music for a film, i discovered a British film maker by the name of Pat Higgins, who so far has released 4 films, with a couple more in production etc, these are : Trashhouse, KillerKiller, Hellbride & The Devils Music. The new ones are an anthology film and a film written by but not directed called “Strippers vs Werewolves”

But i’d recomend people finding KillerKiller on DVD and The Devils Music which is available on-line
