“A note? Highly classified shit found? Hello! Anybody lose their secret CIA shit?” I loved it. Probably should go into more detail than that, but I’m not a film reviewer. But Brad Pitt’s dancing was a highlight. That, and the two CIA agents who periodically share intense duologues deep in the labyrinthine bowels of Langley. […]
Permit me to explain where I stand. As some of you will know, GI Joe was called Action Man over here in the UK, and during the eighties, it was called Action Force. Now, I LOVED Action Force. I had many, many Action Force toys as a child. So, when I say I wanted GI […]
Back in the day, I was quite keen on Steven Seagal. Not in a romantic way. Well, maybe a bit. This is going back a bit, obviously. Back to the glory days of Out For Justice and Hard to Kill. Pr…probably just those two, actually. Seagal now seems content to make anything that gets put […]
It took me a little while to decide quite how to begin this. Mainly because two things annoy me about Gervais. First, much as I loved The Office (and Extras had its moments of brilliance), the whole Gervais “character” (that of an arrogant, pompous twat) is beginning to grate on me. He spends SO much […]
It’s the usual fare for an action film starring one of the familiar eighties action film line-up. Our hero has to take a down an evil drugs baron, has to protect a girl, and has to slap a lot of people about the head with whatever comes to hand. In the case of A Dangerous […]
The old, old tale. Everyone and everything dies. Except for just enough people to write a book about. A father, his son, the mother (seen only in over-used flashbacks)…and in case that’s not enough to hold your interest, a LOT of cannibals. For what American horror movie is complete without backwater cannibals? I don’t want […]
The criminals of today are the same as those of 30 years ago – they just have better weapons. The scale of cyber crime is truly staggering: data breaches in the US exceeded 6 million records in the first half of 2016 alone.
I’m going to shock you. If someone is telling you they can help you build your business in X number of days, they’re lying to you. They’re playing you. They’re not interested in helping you establish yourself. They’re interested in your money.
You cannot imagine my delight when I first laid eyes on LEGO’s new Ideas Women of NASA play set. It includes Margaret Hamilton, one of the foremost names in Computer Science. She was the lead Apollo flight software engineer, and someone whose story I would frequently pull out of the hat when preaching to students […]
I’ve complained about gender inequality in STEM subjects (or rather, the shoddy attempts to combat it) before. This is the Mr Men/Little Miss empire’s attempt to empower young girls and make the STEM world appealing.
