Out now – That Was A Bit Mental: Volume 2 – The ebook!

Hello Chris.

Why, hello there, imaginary reader that I’m using as a cliched way to introduce something by adding a humourous everyman ‘sidekick’! Long time no see.

TWABM 2 coverQuite. Where the fuck have you been?


I’ve been checking your site every day and you’ve barely posted anything in months. Pull the finger out, you complete wanker.

Steady on, mate. I’ve been busy, you know.

Busy with what? Your ‘job’?

No, with That Was A Bit Mental stuff.

But how…? That makes no sense.

I’ve been spending the last few months working on the That Was A Bit Mental Volume 2 ebook, you silly dick.

Ahhh, right. I get it now. When’s it going to be ready?

It’s ready now. Didn’t you read the headline?

Alright, you cheeky bastard. What’s in it then?

Another 100 reviews from the site in ‘Director’s Cut’ form, with all the typos fixed, all the shit jokes replaced with slightly less shit ones and generally made more entertaining. Continue reading “Out now – That Was A Bit Mental: Volume 2 – The ebook!”

Frost (2012) UK trailer

If sci-fi horror set in the snow is your sort of thing (and why wouldn’t it be), then Frost might be right up your frost-encrusted alley.

Originally released in 2012, it’s finally getting a UK DVD release in February, and to celebrate this the fine folks at distribution company Entertainment One have released this UK trailer.

Frost is out on DVD in the UK on 10 February. I’ll have a review on That Was A Bit Mental as soon as possible.

The TWABM ebook – sale now on!

Hey! You there. Haven’t you bought the That Was A Bit Mental Volume 1 ebook yet?

GhouliesIf not, you are to be rewarded for your apathy and/or laziness, because I’m dropping the price for a limited time to mark the New Year.

Yes, for a short period you can now download the ebook for only £0.99 / $1.59, instead of the usual price of £2.22 / $3.49.

That’s less than a quid for 350 pages of sarcastic cult movie reviews, a hundred of the buggers in total. And you probably can’t say fairer than that – though to be fair I haven’t researched that claim much.

So pop over to Amazon and get That Was A Bit Mental Volume 1 now from the Kindle store while it’s dirt cheap. You don’t need to have a Kindle – it also works a treat on the Kindle app on iOS, Android and Windows.

NOTE: For some reason Amazon can be a little weird when I try to change the price, so you may be charged a couple of pence more (at the time of writing, for example, it’s £1.02 instead of £0.99).

Out NOW – That Was A Bit Mental: Volume 1 – the ebook!

Hello again, Chris.

Hello there, disembodied voice who is actually me trying to create a slightly more entertaining narrative by writing in a Q&A style. How are things?

Not bad. I’ve just had my dinner and I’m in the process of considering what to do with the rest of the evening.

JK Rowling
Me, working on my book last month (note: may not actually be me)

(Careful mate, you’re building your part up a bit.)


What’s that? You don’t know what to do this evening? Why not buy and download That Was A Bit Mental: Volume 1?

Buy and download? Are you out of your bastard mind? That Was A Bit Mental is a website, not a book.

Not any more, aggressive imaginary person! That Was A Bit Mental: Volume 1 is finally available for download on Kindle devices and any other device with access to a Kindle app.

Took you long enough.

Indeed. Turns out re-editing 100 reviews, adding extra trivia and jokes to them and researching DVD and Blu-ray information on all of them took well over a hundred hours of spare time, something I didn’t actually have a lot of what with getting married and all.
