Melancholic Nostalgia

Posts tagged ‘review’

Well, that’s an approximate amount, when I wasn’t feeling particularly inspirational. A good ballmark figure I should strive for when I start writing in greater amounts for the next year or so.

Youth in Revolt

April 4th, 2010

Not a bad movie really. Saw the trailer on my iPod (using the podcast from FilmTrailer.com via iTunes) so we decided to see it yesterday.

However, these aren’t your ordinary ones, these are the complete rewrites, when someone goes back in time to change the past. I’ve got about 5 HP stories being monitored […]
