Well it’s back… almost. That’s right; nearly an entire year has gone by for films that do not conform to the English language but now is the time to announce that No-English Moviember will be making a stunning comeback! Continue reading “No-English Moviember 2015 – The Sequel!”
Well here we are: the final week of Febookuary and only three reviews to go. Damn the momentum has been hard to keep up, with last week being a great example. Hopefully we can all forget about that with this review of one of the most well-known horror characters in fiction, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. So quick, let us transform into that ghastly and repetitive of things, the obligatory overview! Continue reading “Febookuary – The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Both Pleasing and Vile”
As the old cliché goes, better late than never I guess. I apologise to, I estimate, all three of you who were eagerly awaiting the Burmese Days review on Monday and found nothing but the blankness of my writing failures. That and my review of Colorless Tsukuru. I had been busy as of late and, while I could have avoided such tardiness by planning ahead and writing my review in advance, I was a bit too lethargic on that score and am now in the situation of having to write at least three reviews very quickly.

I can’t believe it. It’s finally happening. Not only have I reached halfway in Febookuary but I’ve completely sold out and I’m reviewing another Haruki Murakami novel just because I can! If you don’t know I reviewed Murakami’s excellent Norwegian Wood back in 2013, when my blog was still young and untainted by the harsh reality of my addiction to writing and themed posts.

I apologise for two things before I start this review. Firstly, and this might seem a bit weird, but I apologise for the fact I am creating a break in my so far complete list of No-English Moviember posts. I know it seems weird but I shall look back at this with a slight pain in my festering heart that I broke the chain of No-English Moviember reviews.
Hello to all my fellow Chroniclers out there. I just decided to pop by and let you all know about something that is coming up for The Chronic Chronicler which I hope you will all be looking forward to.
With Episode 4 having come and gone, I can firmly say that this has been the series high point thus far. From eccentrics to class humour to downright dastardly actions, this episode has by far satisfied in all departments.
After the cliff-hanger of the last episode, where one of the bears escapes from its pen, George and Billy go out to find him and, if necessary, shoot him should he get close to Upton. Although the bear is recaptured unscathed, George is not so lucky, getting a slight clawing from the bear when both Billy and George startle the bear.
