Hollywood is kinda sleeping today, people, so I shall entertain you today with two low budgeted but still interesting period set movies. The first one is
actually based on a true person! MARY ANNING AND THE DINOSAUR HUNTERS should arrive into cinemas sometime this year!

Katharine Hamilton plays England's female palaeontologist Mary Anning
Plesiosaurus, and notwithstanding the fact that Darwins' 'Origin of Species' was largely influenced by her work. She is at last becoming the most celebrated paleontologist of all time.

 'WUTHERING HEIGHTS' 
 THE LATEST MOVIE ADAPTATION
Now, I must admit that the casting for this one looks terrible or hilarious (admittedly the budget is just 100,000 pounds) to say the least, but who

  3. I sometimes wonder what other inventions or discoveries could have been made if women and minorities weren't so oppressed back then. It's nice to see that she's finally getting the recognition she rightfully deserves.

    1. you usually know only about the discoveries made by the people from the West when in truth, at least half of them if not more were made in Russia, Eastern Europe, Asia and also in the Muslim World.

  4. "Wuthering Heights' - great novel and movie adaptations!
    The gypsy element is always relevant as the world gets more and more mixed ethnically and struggles for the acceptance of the 'different'.

    1. The only difference being that over in UK Gypsies are not the Romani people that we have in our part of the world. For them the Gypsies are not so much a race as a way of travelling living which is why they often call them Travellers as they don't really like to live in houses but in trailers.
