Beau Taplin Beau Taplin's blog:

Ian Thomas Malone Ian Thomas Malone's blog:

Verbosity Doesn’t Make You a Good Writer

Many years ago I told a friend I wanted to be a writer but was scared, I didn’t write like Dickens, nor expressed myself like Keats. ‘Boss,’ he said, ‘you don’t need a great vocabulary to write books. All you need is empathy.’ He was right, and of course, I... Read more of this blog post »

urlThe Babadook is one of those movies that you expect to be disappointed in. A creepy, atmospheric trailer seems to be a recipe for disaster, as proved by movies like The Conjuring, Sinister, Insidious 2, Mama and so on. Your mileage may vary on those flicks, but I was ultimately disappointed in al...
