If you end up having to be isolated at home

Being sick – chronically – on and off in severity has made it that I too have had my fair share of endless isolation.  Some of it in an attempt to not catch anything from others, most of it because I had NO energy/too much pain to do anything, or to try and leave theContinue reading “If you end up having to be isolated at home”

“It’s called a hustle, sweetheart.” The resolutely difficult advice to follow.

To celebrate getting a PhD scholarship, I did what any normal adult would do. I went straight to the movies (one of my favourite things to do) and went to see Zootopia (or Zootropolis as it’s called in the UK).  YOLO. During the movie, it became clear why I had been patiently awaiting the release ofContinue reading ““It’s called a hustle, sweetheart.” The resolutely difficult advice to follow.”

Smizz’s top movies from 2015

So each year I do my top 10 movies. 2015 has been a great year for females. So many strong female-led movies. And it’s about time! I love going to the movies, i love the anticipation of waiting to see a movie. However, this year I didn’t get much opportunity to see as many arthouseContinue reading “Smizz’s top movies from 2015”

Godzilla : A case study in the practice of safe ionising radiation protection

So, for my friends birthday he wanted to see Godzilla. I was skeptical. The only Godzilla I’ve liked previously was the one on the Chewits advert. Naturally, I wasn’t expecting much, but it turned out to be surprisingly watchable, and dare I say it, enjoyable. Some core character developed moments almost make you emotional. AlthoughContinue reading “Godzilla : A case study in the practice of safe ionising radiation protection”

Smizz’s Top 10 Movies of 2013

This year has been hard, like REALLY hard to pick out good top 10 worthy movies. I’m not sure what’s happening out there – but this year has seen a whole-lot of a bunch of  films that were just kind of “Meh”- They were enjoyable, but did it give me any food for thought, orContinue reading “Smizz’s Top 10 Movies of 2013”

Smizz’s Top 10 movies of 2012

It’s that time again where I try and judge what’s the best movies that came out and why. However, I apologise in advance that there are some of my guilty pleasures in here which probably would never make an official top 20 list, never mind a whole top 10!  And there is no mention ofContinue reading “Smizz’s Top 10 movies of 2012”

Best of the Week

  I’m still feeling ‘under the weather’. (A saying that I sort of don’t get – think about it). Had my first ever ct scan on Friday. It was kind of cool, in a technological & expensive but this is still free on the NHS wonderfulness kinda thing! Mane, I love the NHS! It’s beenContinue reading “Best of the Week”

Smizz’s top 10 movies from 2011

You know it’s that time of the year, where I share with you my contradictory taste in movies: Some are high-brow, whilst others have amazing elements but with bland under-tones and some are well – just classic-cheese-fests! Wasting no more time with over-baring introductions: Number 10: Submarine If you’re an Arctic Monkey’s Fan, then you most certainlyContinue reading “Smizz’s top 10 movies from 2011”
