Top Ten - The Sevens

Sorting out the sevens from sixes and fives is hard. Yes I will change my mind as time goes by but these are my picks for the Sevens at the moment!

Top Ten - The Sevens


Fight Club - How much can you know about yourself if you've never been in a fight?

To be honest I wasn’t sure about this movie when I first saw it. Didn’t get it at all. Then the second time I thought it was very good and now it's my lucky SEVEN and the rest is history. Two of the best actors of their generation at the top of their game, directed by one of the best directors in anyones generation at the top of his game was always going to be good. This has it all, stylish, clever and ballsy. It also spurned one of the world’s most powerful publishing houses, see Stinkbrown.


QuestionRhett Miller

Someday somebody's gonna ask you
A question that you should say yes to
Once in your life
Maybe tonight
I've got a question for you
She'd had no idea
Started to cry
She said in a good way
He took her by the hand
Walked her back home
They took the long way

This is on the Scrubs Season 2 soundtrack. I fell for this track straight away. The melody is sweet and message sweeter. As a happily married man with a baby on the way this is just the song for me at the moment.

T.V. Series

My Name is Earl - Hey crab man!!

Jason Lee, Jason Lee and Jason Lee. Anyone who has known me for the last 10 years knows Jason has been my favourite actor. I’m aware he doesn’t chew up the scenery in a Brad Pitt way but he does command attention. This show was always going to be on my radar and it hasn’t disappointed. Add Ethan Suplee and a well cast ensemble and this show is guaranteed laughs in my book. Another stable for a good T.V Series is the cameos and this show does not disappoint.


Dr NoIan Fleming

I’ve read most of the Bonds and while they are all quality this is by far the best. First of all the baddie Dr. No is original and unique. Very much like the 1st Bond movie. However the kicker (spoiler alert!!!) is that Bond does him in by using Guano. Yep, a huge steaming pile of crap!!! But not before Bond is put through the toughest obstacle course committed to paper. If you read, action, adventure or thriller makes this the Bond for you!!

That's it for the Sevens, next up six (sux for my Kiwi fans). In other news:

I have managed to get a couple of producers to read Ryan and my script Soap. Fingers crossed.

I'm editing Wet Sand my feature length script and hoping to chisel out something resembling a shootable movie. Hallmark movie channel here I come!

I've left the best til last!!! My beautiful wife is 14 and a 1/2 weeks pregnant and I'll take a healthy baby over any of the above!!!

Keep an eye out for the Sixes!!!!

Until then don't drop the soap!


  1. So what you're saying is, Jason Lee should play Bond, and Rhett Miller would do the Bond song. Then at the end of the movie we'd find out that Bond actually is Dr No...?

  2. I'll just sit quietly and wait patiently for the sixes...hmm, hmm, hmm.
