Anti-Valentine’s Day movies

As most of us are locked down (note: it’s a pandemic), Valentine’s Day seems somewhat hollow. A good way to fight back against all the romance and declarations of love out there is with movies.

Favourite female film characters with brightly coloured hair

Someone I know recently dyed her hair pink. She’d previously had it purple, or was it green or blue? I forget, whatever the colour I remember it looked cool at the time, because, let’s face it, if you’ve got bright hair you’re automatically fifty per cent more interesting than most of us.

Sexiest characters in the Walking Dead

Over the seasons, The Walking Dead has gotten more and more grim. Literally, nothing good ever happens. The characters go through hell and then some, then dust off and go again. I’m very close to being done with watching it. But it did get me thinking, despite all the characters being permanently under a layer… Continue reading Sexiest characters in the Walking Dead

Top kick-ass women actors (in TV) that I like lately
