The picture I used above is a screenshot from the newest video made by The Velvet Onion (my encyclopedia for everything related to The Boosh). Look at him!!! He is about to turn 40 and yet he still looks like late 20 or early 30.
Happy Birthday to my favorite comedian, Noel Fielding…may you keep your creative imagination alive and never let age holds you down from being a kid with no fantasy boundary.

I know that I have written some post on Noel Fielding and what you will read in this special post is mostly things you have read before….but nothing’s wrong with writing it again, right?
I want to let you all know 5 major reasons why I love Noel Fielding.
#1 Because He is Bloody Hilarious
I first saw Noel in The IT Crowd as the Gothic Richmond Avenal, I like his character instantly. But I wasn’t a fan yet. Read more of this post

First of all…This is not a pure Star Trek review!! This post is more about me rambling on about Benny than about Star Trek because this is the first time I got to see him in the big screen *swoon*
Out of all the actors I like, I think there are ONLY two actors that I admire for both their talent and their look, although not in the same level, they are, OF COURSE, Cillian Murphy and then Benedict Cumberbatch.
I like a lot of actors but not in the same way as these two. Take example of Sharlto Copley, I will watch every movie he is in it BUT he is hardly the type that makes me want to bite my fingers because he is too good looking. I also like Christian Bale with his amazing acting ability but he is also not going to make me gaga over his look. And then there is Keanu reeves, love seeing him but not the way he acts. What I am trying to say is, Both Cillian and Benny are the only actors that can mesmerized me with their acting ability and also their charming persona…However, Benny is still way behind my dearest Cillian (Sorry Ben, that Irishman is difficult to replace)
Benny has amazed me in Sherlock. And when I started collecting ALL his TV shows and Movies, he amazed me even more. I love his performance as young Stephen Hawking and he was so believable as British youngest prime minister in Amazing Grace and the annoying self conscious geek in Starter for 10. I guess all Benny’s fans should always be grateful to the people who had cast him as Sherlock because that show has shown us a hidden gem. Read more of this post

I am not sure when was the first time I heard Gaiman’s name but I do remember the first review I read, it was Graveyard Book in both TBM’s blog (50 Years Project) and Caroline’s blog (Beauty is a Sleeping Cat). They were having a readalong. I really enjoyed their review/discussion but still at that point even though I am curious but NOT curious enough.
And then I was quite surprise to find his name as the writer of The Doctor’s Wife, Doctor Who’s Series 6 episode 4. His episode was really good. I like the connection he made between The Doctor and his TARDIS. Upon seeing that, I became more curious on Neil Gaiman…or as Alice would say curiouser and curiouser. Neil Gaiman also writes last week’s episode of Doctor Who called Nightmare in Silver (Haven’t seen it yet)
Then I asked someone who also loves Stephen King as much as I am whether he has ever read Gaiman’s book and he told me that Gaiman is one of his favorite authors.
So…I finally bought American Gods (will read it after I finished my Stephen King’s book) and found 2 movies based on his books…in short, 1 one them blew my mind while the other was just a fun watch. Read more of this post
It’s been a while since I wrote a new post here, the last post was on Thursday.
I was actually planning to write a birthday post for Julian Barratt on May 2nd but I got soooo busy and unable to do it. So I am just going to say it today
Hope you have A healthy and long life…and start writing Boosh again
Today, I want to share 5 movies and 1 TV series…like I said above, I was/am a bit busy so I choose to write these interesting viewings in short review.
Run Fat Boy Run (2007)
Director: David Schwimmer
Cast: Simon Pegg, Thandie Newton, Hank Azaria, Dylan Moran, Harish Patel, Matthew Fenton
Run Fat Boy Run is a fun movie about a man trying to show the woman he loves that he can change. Dennis Doyle (Simon Pegg) ran away on his wedding day because he felt that he was unworthy for her. He came to regret that but she had already had new boyfriend now. Doyle wanted to prove to her that he had changed and willing to do charity marathon to show his determination.
RFBR is really funny but the story is rather typical. There are many movies like this and that makes the movie a bit forgettable. I really like the comedy in this one, I had great fun watching it…but I wouldn’t call it great movie.

Click this image to see more post on Monthly Murphy
The original plan was to write review of When Harry Became Tree, however there are so many interesting news about the one actor I love the most and I decided to postpone the review and shared news of this talented and gorgeous Irishman.
Many movie bloggers have Movie News, like my friend Terrence with his Movie News Monday, since I am not a pure movie blogger, I don’t have Movie News and will never have one as I am too lazy to update news of movies unrelated to people I like…but from now I will have Murphy News section
I used to share Cillian’s news under different titles, such as: Cillian’s next Project; Cillian’s Update; and More awards and Movies. They are such a random title….so Today I officially named all news about this actor with brilliant talent as Murphy News.
Of course Murphy news is part of my Monthly Murphy
Now….let’s begin the news!
My favorite site, The Cillian Site, shared a video of Misterman. I am going to remind you a bit of Misterman, it was a one man play staring the one and only Cillian Murphy. He won two theatrical awards for his amazing performance. Read more of this post

Time for another Doctor Who review
I have mentioned in my Doctor Who series 5 review that Matt Smith is my least favorite Doctor and I am not that keen of his impersonation of the Doctor…however, I am glad I stay with him (meaning I didn’t ditch Doctor Who because the new Doctor was less interesting than the previous one)…I am glad because Matt Smith’s version of The Doctor has finally got into me
I think one of the reasons I couldn’t warm up to Smith in series 5 was because series 5 was a bit of a letdown. After the amazing series 4, series 5 felt so plain. FORTUNATELY, series 6 was a knock out! I love all the episodes and it’s far more interesting than series 5. Each episode made me accept the quirky Doctor more and more.
Although I am still going to say that Tennant is my favorite Doctor, but I am beginning to enjoy Smith’s version of The Doctor I am also warming up to the Doctor’s companions, Amy and Rory…mostly Rory. River Song also pops up occasionally.
Series 6 had 13 fascinating stories that completely glued me to the television set. I finished them all in 3 days, I could have finished them all in one day if I had a 13 hour free time. They were a series of amazing journey. I was all pumped up again The feeling was just like when I enjoyed all the episodes from series 1 with the ninth Doctor to series 4 with the tenth Doctor.
The Impossible Astronaut and Day of The Moon. The series began with a double episode which reminded me so much of The X Files (yippi). The Doctor invited Amy, Rory and River Song to a certain place in USA. An astronaut suddenly showed up from the lake and shot the Doctor…yes, the series began with the death of the Doctor. Quite an opening, don’t you think? Read more of this post

First of all, Happy 3rd Blogoversary to Inspired Ground Thank you so much for taking me along for the celebration, if not for Andina (the owner of Inspired Ground) I would never have discovered this amazing movie. Andina treated us with movie at PIX Viewing Room (a room for hire simply to watch movies)
We picked the movie randomly because it looked interesting. The first movie we watched together was The Third Man (1949) but the DVD got stuck almost at the end, they (PIX) gave us another chance to see a movie for free. We picked Funny Games. Andina has reviewed it before me> here.
Watching Funny Games made me realize that you don’t need excessive scary music, blood splattered everywhere and gruesome act of torturing to make a good suspenseful movie.
Funny Games was directed by Michael Haneke, it is about two sick young men holding a family hostage and torturing them in the simplest and yet meanest way. It’s a case of family holiday turns hellish. Read more of this post
