Finally watched this film for the first time and I absolutely loved it to bits. As I sat there sweating through the UK heatwave — my apartment being three or four degrees higher — I became lost in this world of LA. It goes without saying that Al Pacino and Robert Deniro are at the…

Buffy — Welcome to the Hellmouth (Series 1 Episode 1)

The opening episode to one of my favourite ever tv series. Buffy Summers arrives in Sunnydale and meets the people who will come to form her close circle of friends. I’m going to enjoy rewatching this series along with Angel when I get to it.
