Listen to my review of the Star Wars Last Jedi. An average outing for the Star Wars franchise. Listen and I will tell you why.

In a world without social media. Pub chain Wetherspoons deletes all there social media accounts. A bold move and a reminder to all businesses to ask the question(s); Why do we have social media accounts? Do social media accounts help the bottom line? Does having social media accounts grow the amount of customers for your business?

This Esquire piece looks at the downturn in science fiction. To much style not enough substance. The genre has been feeding off Blade Runner, Alien and 2001 Space Odyssey for many years.

Both Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 show the genre can marry style to substance and more importantly get you thinking about issues.

Cinema began as a fairground attraction. Is it going back there?

Sad to hear about the death of John Perry Barlow. His Declaration of Cyberspace independence may look naive from our vantage point today but it was a bold vision that galvanised people in support of the utopian possibilities the Internet could give to the world.

My best film of 2018 so far is The Phantom Thread. My review can be listened to on this video. Although the film features Daniel Day Lewis he is brilliant but equally so are the female leads.

The tech panic and the stories it generates. This article warns about appending the word “addiction” the jury is still out on that issue.

My review of Downsizing. A film that disappointed me but has ambition, perhaps to much. In my review I talk about how the film fails when with more focus it could have succeeded. Please listen to the video below

The tech backlash is real and growing. Though the people fuelling it have there own narrow interests but dress it up in supposed concern for wider society.

At the end of this period of tech backlash I want to see more plurality in social media, more new innovative services that thrive and are not just building up then only to be bought out by big tech.
