Bilbo’s Blog

Hello all and welcome to my blog, where I used to blog about movies but shall now be just blogging about something that happened that week (might be movies still, might be motorcycle racing… who knows!)

My aim is to upload every Friday so you’ve got something over the weekend to read (and I can spend my lunch breaks writing it).

Skeletons in the Closet

My two cents on when a discredited personality corrupts the work of others.

Why I Love Battle Passes

Whatever your feelings are about Fortnite, you can’t deny that it was a massive games changer in the… well games industry.

Will a Fourth Matrix work?

So I recently re-watched The Matrix trilogy and it occurred to me that these films were released at the perfect point in time. Whilst their spectacle of kung-fu, bullet time and car chases were the obvious crowd pleasers, the real meat of the film’s was the Matrix itself!

Thanos with Infinity Gauntlet

Dread it, run from it… Blogging arrives nonetheless

Long story short, I’m trying to do a couple of things to turn things around, largely in trying to get my creative juices flowing again to see if that helps out with the dull monotony that is life at the moment. So to that end, here is one of the branches I’ve decided to re-explore!


Why the world needs movies

Films are an interesting beast within society.  If you want to get a job in the industry, people mock you and say you’ll fail.   But when they get home, all they do is consume moving images on their television all evening.  And this applies to all the arts:  whether they sit at home and play games; they go out to the theater to watch a show; they sit and read a book; or simply go out for meal and enjoy the visuals that the restaurant provides.

The Matrix

Is the Rise in Technology Ruining Films?

I realised- during a recent revisit to the franchise – that The Matrix turns twenty years old next year.  Whilst not too long of a time in the grand scheme of things, it was during this period that modern CGI was in its infancy.  This means that – looking back at a lot of the use of this early CGI – it’s a little… lackluster.
