Film Review: Chef

Posted on by 5WC in Film

You may have noticed recently that the number of films I have seen and therefore, the number of reviews I have written have been reducing. While my love of films and all things cinematic is as strong as ever, I think it’s just that natural, seasonal switch as the sun comes out and the weather …

Flight Report: G-DIPZ ~ Here Comes The Rain Again

Posted on by 5WC in Choc Dips, Hot Air Ballooning

While it would be nice to fly under crystal blue skies on a warm sunny evening as the chocolate box countryside basks in the last throws of a beautiful days memory, but we can’t always get what we want, or to be precise, we’d hardly ever fly if it did. Occasionally you have to grab …

A Bunch Of Amateurs At The Watermill Theatre

Posted on by 5WC in Stage

Last Christmas while attending our family’s traditional outing to the Watermill Theatre’s festive production – The Adventures Of Pinocchio – we saw a poster for a production of A Bunch Of Amateurs, a film my mother had seen and enjoyed, this summer and with its stage run falling around the same time as my Father’s birthday …

Flight Report: G-CEGG ~ I Believe I Can Fly

Posted on by 5WC in G-CEGG, Hot Air Ballooning

If you’ve spent any time reading the pages of this website or working your way through the mountain of blog posts you will have probably have come to a few conclusions. Firstly, I watch too many films; secondly, I have been suffering with a few trying issues over the last few years and thirdly, it’s …

A Trip Down Memory Lane…

Posted on by 5WC in Television

It’s amazing just how much of our childhood we don’t actually remember and how much is created not from the physical remembrance of an event but rather through stories and photographs recounted and revisited. Those brief backwards glimpses that provide a tale to how our journey through life began and how the little details of …

Film Review: Belle

Posted on by 5WC in Film

It is fair to say that Belle is certainly not the type of film that I would normal entertain or really pass a second glance at. I’m believe in giving most films a fair chance and am willing to watch pretty much anything once, and yet, period dramas have never grabbed me, they’ve never been …

Book Review: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Posted on by 5WC in Book

As I said in my Mother’s review of NW by Zadie Smith, she is part of a monthly book club; each month reading a novel before gathering for teas, coffee and a discussion about whether they liked it, hated it, or even managed to finish it. This time around, the book of choice was The …

Film Review: The Past

Posted on by 5WC in Film

It has always disappointed me slightly that in the UK we have such a snobbish attitude towards language. Whether it’s in sunburnt tourist berating the poor cashier on holiday – Do. You. Speak. English? – or our reluctance, bordering on an almost xenophobic mistrust, towards watching foreign language films and television, it’s such a shame because there …

Film Review: The Lunchbox

Posted on by 5WC in Film

Over the past few months it has become more and more apparent that my local multiplex cinemas have been showing less and less variety in the films they are offering with comic book “blockbusters” and 3D “smash hits” stealing every available screening much to the detriment of smaller, less mainstream films. As a result, I …

Film Review: X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Posted on by 5WC in Film

It’s been a while since I last enrolled in Charles Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters, in fact I would even go as far as saying that I have in fact skipped a couple of the more recent classes and going into X-Men: Days Of Future Past, in all honesty I wasn’t as revised and ready …
