Film Roundup – April 2022

So I used to write little film reviews for fun on my Instagram when I first got a Cineworld unlimited card. After the past 2 years of barely any visits to my favourite place in the world, I’m determined to make the most out of it this year, and with plenty of big films slated to come out this year, I’m very excited! So if you want yet another bunch of reviews from an underqualified blog writer, you’re in the right place!

April Update: Hello again! This month has been wild as I swap jobs more than underwear it seems. So this month has been one of the most meagre with only 2 visits. If you missed the March’s edition, you can read that here, and don’t forget to check out my article on some of my favourite films from 2021!

The Glasgow Writer: Singl-End

With a firm commitment to The Glasgow Writer, I began with a recommendation to Singl-End (not a typo) in Merchant City from a friend. And I’m glad because I had never noticed it before I went looking for it. Not that it’s hidden away, but just because I wasn’t too familiar with the Italian Centre. Situated on John street, on the left-hand side of a Tryptych of businesses; the other two being Katie’s Bar and Osteria, it’s not immediately obvious that it’s a café. But is it a good writing spot?

“lock the universe behind me when I leave.” – Why the return of Sandman does not fill me with joy.

“When the first living thing existed, I was there waiting. When the last living thing dies, my job will be finished. I’ll put the chairs on the tables, turn out the lights and lock the universe behind me when I leave.” says Death, the elder sister of Dream in regards to the grandest cycle of them all. The very nature of all existence as we can comprehend. But in regards to Gaiman’s highly acclaimed Sandman series, Death should’ve closed up properly long ago.

A single step…

Hello there. My name is Richard Mooney and I am currently the writer of 2 comic series.

The first is “The adventures of Percy Nobleman” which you can read parts of for free at https://www.instagram.com/adventuresofpercynobleman/

It is a lighthearted tale about a man in search of the perfect beard and the adventures he has along the way.

The second comic I am working on is entitled “Uptown Chronicles” and it could not be further removed from my other projects.

Set in the fictional modern day city of “Uptown” where the government is corrupt beyond reason, a group of broken individuals from different walks of life team up to tackle the problem head on, often by unconventional and violent means.

One comic is trying to sell beard products…

one comic is trying to start a revolution…

Funny old game isn’t it?
