About Varrick

Hi there.

I’ve been lurking around Lush for a while, enjoying the many fabulous stories on offer. So, I’ve finally taken the plunge and signed up with the aim of posting some of my own humble offerings. I’ve been writing as a hobby for several years now, but have only recently turned my hand to erotica, so I hope I’m up to the high standards set by so many on here!

The usual, I guess. Reading, writing, films, music… And tinkering with old cars.
Favorite Books:
Too many to list! However, I suppose I’d have to say High-Rise by J.G. Ballard, American Tabloid by James Ellroy, Fatherland by Robert Harris, The Child in Time by Ian McEwan, the Ripley novels by Patricia Highsmith, and The End of the Affair by Graham Greene.

I also enjoy a good comic, and have to say that Y: The Last Man, Transmetropolitan, DMZ, and Scalped are some of the best literature I have ever read, regardless of genre.
Favorite Authors:
The aforementioned J.G. Ballard, James Ellroy, Robert Harris, Ian McEwan, and Graham Greene. But also Carl Hiaasen, Elmore Leonard, and Robert Crais.
Favorite Movies:
I’m a huge film buff, so it’s a difficult choice. However, I have a real fondness for The Apartment, Sunset Boulevard, The Third Man, Double Indemnity, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Chinatown, and many others.
Favorite Music:
I’m also a music fanatic, and my favourites include The Clash, The Smiths, Led Zeppelin, Warren Zevon, and David Bowie.

Zoe Saldana's a beautiful lady for sure, but she seems to be growing a spare foot midway up her leg...

I saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ( American version) which I enjoyed, then read the book. The book was awesome. Then read the sequel, The Girl That Played with Fire. Again, awesome book. I watched the European movie and was disappointed.... so many pieces missing. I've yet to see or read the last episode. But I think I'll just read this one.

The Millennium trilogy was originally adapted for Swedish TV. When the books became successful around the world, the three TV adaptations were edited for worldwide cinema release. If you haven’t seen them, I’d recommend seeking out the original full-length television versions. Each one is something like 30-60 minutes longer than the more commonly seen ‘movies’. Of course, they still aren’t as good as the books!

I'd like to see Fahrenheit 451 become a movie

Fahrenheit 451 was released as a movie in 1966. It was directed by François Truffaut and starred Julie Christie. It’s pretty good, but I can’t compare it to the book as I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t read it.

Since The Producers is really a movie remake of a Broadway musical, here's another of my favorites: School For Scoundrels -1960 version, wih Terry Thomas (and no, that is NOT a typo - School For Scandal was second rate schlock)

To which version of The Producers are you referring? The 1968 (and definitive) version was an original film and not based on previous works. Mel Brooks even won the best original screenplay Oscar for his script. The Broadway musical was based upon that film, with the 2005 film based upon the Broadway musical.

At times, showbiz can be far too incestuous!

Topic: Horror genre has been killed
Posted: 22 Feb 2013 05:35

If you want quality horror, you’d do well to move away from the American mainstream and head to foreign climes. In the last ten to fifteen years, the vast majority of decent horror has come from the Far East. Japanese films such as Audition, Ring (before the US remake), Dark Water (before the US remake) Ju-On (before the US remake – are we spotting a theme?), and A Tale of Two Sisters from South Korea, are fantastic examples of psychological horror.

The scares in these films don’t come from overblown set pieces with moronic, scantily clad teens pursued by a psychopath wielding the contents of Home Depot’s hardware section. Instead, they tend to build the tension slowly, and for the most part contain believable characters that find themselves in extraordinary circumstances. The Orphanage from Spain also fits well into this category.

However, I believe one American movie of the last few years does deserve a mention – Drag Me to Hell. Okay, so it wasn’t terrifying, but being from Sam Raimi, it did go some way toward finding that mix of horror and tongue in cheek humour that he brought to The Evil Dead movies.

After Googling the term, I can safely say not. Hell, I get nervous using sharp objects to trim my pubes, so there’s no way I’d willingly pierce my prong.
