You can learn a lot about the reaction to the gender pay gap from westerns. In most western movies, the plot revolves around the quest to right wrongs. Sheriff’s, Marshalls, members of posses and lone gunslingers set out to avenge a wrongful death, protect ranchers from rustlers or just get even. Exposing the gender pay […]


Tomfoolery

They don’t call it Mission Impossible for nothing! Tom Cruise has hurt himself filming Mission Impossible 6. Tom broke his ankle in two places while filming a jump between high-rise buildings in London. Of course if Tom Cruise wants to take on a REALLY impossible mission, he should try explaining the plots of the last five […]

I went back to the future the other day. I went to visit my old mate Richard Thomas in Great Sankey near Warrington. It’s where I grew up and Richard still lives nearby. Although Richard and I have met up a few times since, this was the first time since 1985 that I’d been back […]

19Oct14

Foreign films are being ruined by whoever is in charge of the subtitles. I like subtitled films because they combine two of the things I like doing most, reading and watching movies. The problem is when two characters are on screen together. The subtitles on screen cover both sides of their conversation. That spoils it […]
