I’m busy getting ready for our Halloween horror fest here at Wild Tide, following on from the 90’s here are my top 5 horror movies from the 00′s. Hope they make you hide behind the sofa: 28 Days Later Probably in my opinion the best zombie film, the zombies have a visceral, frantic, deadly quality which is lacking in a surprising amount of big zombie films (World War Z). The action is always really intense and the film is…

So getting ready for our Halloween horror fest here are my top 5 90’s horror movies. Hope they bring a chill to your spine:   The Blair Witch Project This movie cost just over $20,000 to make but made almost $250,000,000. Obviously this was a massive success for the film buisness and produced a massive surge in ‘found footage’ style movies in the 00’s (most of which are poor) What I love about Blair Witch is that you never really…

  Some people may disagree with me but I don’t really think the 80’s were a great decade for horror movies. There were a lot of slasher sequels and it just wasn’t as inventive as some of the other decades. Saying that, there are still quite a few to choose from, here are my top 5: The Fly The is a fantastic David Cronenberg film featuring amazing special effects and Jeff Goldblums best ever performance. It tells of the story…

  We are now in October, the month of Halloween. So being a horror fan, I thought I’d write a series of posts about my favourite horror films of each decade. I thought I’d start chronologically with the earliest post – the 70’s. Here we go… Halloween Directed by John Carter who also wrote the memorable theme, Halloween is one of the films that started off the slasher genre and introduced the now infamous character Michael Myers (no not the…

  Today is a day for mourning, for Breaking Bad is over, the final episode of the final season has been shown. On the other side of the coin, there is call for celebration, for Breaking Bad was amazing. I enjoy loved, every single minute of it, from start to finish. I want to encourage anyone who hasn’t seen it to see it, so I will not give away anything. What I can tell you, is what makes Breaking Bad…

  What’s that graphic novels are for geeks? Well maybe some, but not all! Anyway aren’t geeks suppose to be cool now anyway? I love graphic novels, the best ones are sublime, page after page of beautiful art and story telling. If you haven’t ever read one, then you seriously need to pick one out of this list and have a look. Yeah sure there are some nerdish graphic novels out there but none of the books on this list…

A long long time ago, I once had an xbox, but one day it died and I never got around to replacing it. Now on this rainy Cornish day after several years i’m starting to miss it. My longing for a console to while away a rainy Sunday on isn’t helped by the forthcoming release of GTAV (Grand Theft Auto 5). This trailer type video makes it look like an extremely good way to while away a rainy day.

When I was a kid I saw a Sea World style Killer Whale show in a aquapark in the South of France. Now i’ve always loved animals and therefore zoos and aquariums. I went and thoroughly enjoyed the day, I was staggered by their size, beauty and presence. A guilty feeling was there over these huge majestic creatures being kept in small enclosures for the entertainment of humans, but truthfully all the positive emotions of actually having the opportunity to…
