The Craggus Quinquennial

Five years ago, I posted my first ever review on What The Craggus Saw, the (in hindsight) ironic and pessimistically titled “I Give It A Year”. Five years and 627,082 words later (that’s 343 words a day, stat fans), here we are celebrating the site’s fifth anniversary. In its time, What The Craggus Saw has … Continue reading The Craggus Quinquennial

Third Time’s The Charm: Why Do Trilogies Always Disappoint?

What The Craggus Saw turned three years old this week. To celebrate this third anniversary, I thought I’d take a look at trilogies. Has there ever been a trilogy where the third chapter hasn’t disappointed? Bryan Singer obviously doesn’t think so and ironically made a joke about it in his “First Class” trilogy closer “X-Men: … Continue reading Third Time’s The Charm: Why Do Trilogies Always Disappoint?

And Now A Word To Our Sponsors…

If you’ll excuse a brief moment of confessional self-promotion and collection tin rattling, I’d like to use this opportunity to tell you that I’ve signed up for a charity fundraising ‘3 Peaks Challenge’, meaning I’ve given myself four mountains to climb. THE FORTY YEAR OLD VERGIN’ (ON MORBID OBESITY) I am, it must be admitted, not in … Continue reading And Now A Word To Our Sponsors…

What The Craggus Saw… is a double Liebster Award winner!

Recognition is always exciting and gratifying, and unsolicited recognition from your peers is exponentially more so – especially when you’ve only got to know them through a shared interest (movies) and a shared hobby* (blogging). What is a Liebster Award? Well, first and foremost, it’s a prestigious award given to bloggers by bloggers as a … Continue reading What The Craggus Saw… is a double Liebster Award winner!
