Short pass – from short stories to films with Roller Ball Murder

leave a comment »

Inspired by Mark Kermode’s video blog post Do Short Stories Make Great Films?* I tracked down ‘Roller Ball Murder‘ by William Harrison, the short story that inspired the film Rollerball. It’s pretty nifty. Interesting to see how much of it made it to the film.

And here’s the trailer, a reminder that I need to re-watch the film again real soon. Jon-na-than! Jon-na-than!

Kitchen Nightmare

leave a comment »

A trailer for a British rom-com Love’s Kitchen (previously known as No Ordinary Trifle ) recently appeared, notable for a cameo by chef Gordon Ramsay playing himself.
