  4. Be an Angel - Back a New Horror Film

    My Niece's husband is a very decent indeed writer and producer of Horror films. They are looking to raise £14,000 on Kickstarter to fund their next project, so from as little as £10, which you only pay if the Film raises the funds, you can be involved, get your name in the credits, get a digital...
  5. Question Double standards?

    http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/local_news/10160719.New_ten_screen_cinema_planned_for_Southend/?ref=ec My whole point.

    How our Parents/Grandparents coped with the War.

    Here we are it’s DoDtS’s summer saga. Totally non football related, but my attempt to understand how and what our forebears had to endure through the war in a series of extracts from the Southend Standards of the times. Not everybody’s cup of tea but if your not interested then don’t read it...

    West Indies v Pakistan

    Really interesting series this as they should be two evenly matched (ie flawed) sides, but both are teams who look as if they finally may be ready to start making some progress now the WIndies have dropped that waster Gayle and Pakistan have purged most of the match-fixers. I think Pakistan may...

    Deeping Underpass

    What are they building where the underpass was that is now closed (underneath newlook) I saw something coming to form from the top window of the cinema the other day, but couldnt quite make out what it was supposed to be. Anyone on the inside have any idea, or any pretty 'artists impressions'...

    Kids Just Don't Know Their Born

    While having a wonder around the shop today it suddenly struck me just how little kids know of the real world and what they are missing out on. It started when my missus mentioned our niece and how it must cost her mum a fortune so she can wear all the clobber and make-up yet she hasn't two...

    Seeing as I have Wednesday afternoons off and it costs me £5 and 45 minutes at best to get into college, I thought recently that I'd save the pound cxhange I get from the bus driver every day and use it to go to the cinema once a fortnight or so. Excellent plan. In theory. Went there today...

    Orange Wednesdays

    Thanks to a monumental **** up at college, I now have Wednesday afternoons free. Now, as it costs me the best part of a fiver to get in and there's a cinema about 2 minutes walk down the road, I'm thinking of taking Orange up on their Orange Wednesdays deal. Slight problem though. I don't...

    District 9 - anyone been to see it?

    I have. I bloody loved it. Without giving anything away story wise for the uninitiated, discuss it in here. The trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6PDlMggROA - really didn't tell you ANYTHING about what the central storyline of the film would be, merely the background setup, so after...
