Director: Jon M. Chu
Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Daniel Radcliffe

You may recall me musing about my girlfriend bringing me home a copy of The Walking Dead on DVD a couple of weeks ago (with me being understandably outraged). Well, readers, you’re not going to believe what's just happened.

My new girlfriend swung by the flat last night with a little surprise for me. “What is it?” I casually enquired.

As FluidOne’s resident Scientologist, there’s nothing I love doing more than reading about science. It’s why I spend my weekends sitting alone in my room, reading from a dimly lit monitor and listening to Evanescence, all whilst Mother shouts at me to turn it down and/or to come and celebrate Mother’s Day with her.
