The Desolation of Smaug: The Godfather Part II of Fantasy Films


That title might seem misleading: why would I be comparing the Peter Jackson saga with one of the most important trilogies of all time?

Last night, the final series of Christmas performances of Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People opened at Bloomsbury Theatre, where Ince has been performing this variety/science/comedy show since 2008. And there is only one thing that Ince wants to prove to us: scientists are fun. Yes, they are indeed. Continue reading

My Favourite Moments from “Friends”

The six main actors during the filming of the show's finaleAs someone born in the border between the 80s and the 90s, I can safely say that my childhood was not about cartoons, or puppets or dolls -well, only Barbies: it was about Friends. I grew up with Ross, Chandler and company, and they taught me English, life issues and weird songs. Continue reading
