Fearsome Fairy Tales

Posted by Andrea Lake on Sunday, January 13, 2013, In : Regular 
Okay, so this week I've been looking at Fairy Stories in class and once again, I was the first to admit what I pushover I have always been for fairy tales.  When I was a child I absorbed them all, like a sponge soaking up water.

I don't know what it was about them that fired my imagination.  Hansel and Gretel terrified me - the thought of a parent deliberately leaving two children alone in the woods was more than I could imagine as a child, especially as I was much-loved by my parents.  Little...

Once Upon a Time

Posted by Andrea Lake on Monday, May 28, 2012, In : Witch 
Is anyone else watching this fantasy drama on Channel 5?

Created by the same writing team who dreamed up Tron and Lost, it's a cross over between a "real life" place called Storybrooke, Maine and a magical Enchanted Forest incorporating the scope and characters of fairy tales and stories.

Many of the events throughout the series appear to strongly echo the stories in many of our favourite fairy stories, with the aptly named town Mayor, Regina, strongly reminiscent of Snow White's evil witch of ...

Still Reading Inheritance Cycle

Posted by Andrea Lake on Thursday, February 2, 2012, In : Regular 
I must admit, I am still absolutely loving Christopher Paolini's work! 

From my previous post on this subject, I am happy to say I got some aspects right, but I also got a lot of stuff wrong!  I'm not going to go into any details, as I think the books are well worth buying and reading for yourselves!

Eragon has undergone a great many changes since the first book.  He has grown up considerably and has had many challenges to face.  He has also killed many of his fellow men, and feels the weight ...

The Time for Dragon Riders will Come Again...

Eragon... Eldest... Brisingr... Inheritance...  I have all four of them now and have just started reading Brisingr.

Eragon's story, I already knew thanks mainly to the cinematic release.  However, I think the pundits in Hollywood did a massive disservice to this particular film!

They got some of the action right, but some parts of it were sped up, which was confusing at best, and other times the film seemed to go so slow.  It's a shame, because the film had so much potential and I really can't ...

Charmed Life

Posted by Andrea Lake on Monday, January 23, 2012, In : Witch 
I'm not a witch, but I do have a favourite television show focused entirely on a trio of witches who are dedicated to fighting demons and devoted to protecting all that is good.  Of course I'm talking about Charmed!

I remember watching the very first Charmed pilot so many years ago (I dare not even think back that far!) and I was captivated, spellbound - hook, line and sinker.  Of course, I recognised Shannon Doherty (Prue) from Beverley Hills 90210 and could just about recall Alyssa Milano (P...
