So this is what it feels like to be thirty

This post is a little overdue. I had planned to post this a day or so after I turned thirty. But a day turned into two. Then five. It’s well over a week now. Though maybe the distance between the day I turned thirty and now is a good thing?

So, yes. July 13th was my thirtieth birthday. Let me tell you something, dear reader. To say I wasn’t exactly looking forward to turning thirty was a slight understatement. But there was nothing stopping it happening! Continue Reading

How to Train Your Dragon 2

A few weeks later than planned, How to Train Your Dragon 2 was finally seen in the cinema. FINALLY. Happy to say, it was worth the wait. However, just wished we were able to see it at the “nice” cinema.

Which is the sole reason of the rewatch! Continue Reading

Film score pick of the mo: How to Train Your Dragon 2

Took a little bit longer than I had anticipated, but finally got around to seeing How to Train Your Dragon 2, and it was everything I could have wanted out of a sequel to one of my favourite animated films of recent years.

Even better, the film score from John Powell delivered yet again. Though, a couple of times it felt like it was trying to slip into Brave’s score, especially the track For the Dancing and the Dreaming.

What I was incredibly glad for was having Jónsi back with a track on the album. The whole reason I got into Jónsi in the first place was all down to How to Train Your Dragon! Continue Reading
