A Dog’s Breakfast – Movie by David Hewlett

No Comments »

February 25th, 2008 Posted 2:18 pm

In 2007 David Hewlett (our very own Rodney McKay) released “A Dog’s Breakfast” his directorial debut, based on his own script.

I’ll confess I sat down to watch this purely as an Atlantis fan and was completely blown away! Side-splittingly hilarious and just a little bit dark (think Tim Burton crossed with Wes Anderson), A Dog’s Breakfast is a great film in it’s own right.

Of course with the chance to see Mr. Hewlett in the altogether, Paul McGillion in drag, and cameos from Rachel Luttrell and Chris Judge the Stargate fan has a little extra to gain from this movie!

David Hewlett plays Patrick, an obsessive compulsive, who gets overprotective of his little sister (Kate Hewlett) when she brings home her fiancé Ryan (McGillion).

Convinced that Ryan is planning to murder his sister, Patrick decides to get rid of him first. Thus begins a comedy of errors as Patrick’s best laid plans go horribly (and hilariously) wrong, in fact he makes a dog’s breakfast of the whole thing ;-)

Seriously, if you haven’t seen it do so right now, you can get it on iTunes and Amazon Unbox electronically (US), or get the DVD from Amazon (NTSC region 1 only).

Word of warning, if you are going to watch this on your iPod whilst using public transport be prepared for lots of strange looks as you rock back and forth laughing uncontrollably (I will not be held accountable for anyone getting arrested!)

I’ve finally got around to doing something about the site’s “backend”, the Jumper is now running on WordPress with the NextGen gallery plugin.

This means you can now subscribe to our RSS feed and be automatically updated when new wallpapers are added. There’s going to be a lot on new goodies coming very soon, so it just might be worth your while :-)

If you notice any bugs, have any issues, complaints or comments, please let me know either via the comments system or at the usual email address.

Keep up to date with the latest Stargate releases (and help support puddle jumper) via our new Stargate Store, powered by Amazon.

All processing is done by Amazon, to keep your details safe and secure. If you’re looking to buy Stargate Atlantis or SG1 goodies, I’d really appreciate it if you used the store, it won’t cost you any extra and it’ll help towards the running costs of the site.

Hi everyone, thanks for continuing to visit and support Puddle-Jumper!

I’ve been ill for the last six months with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and it has stopped me doing lots of things that I’d like to (including new papers and site updates). Because of this I thought I’d reach out to you nice people and see if there’s anyone one out there who might be interested in contributing desktop wallpapers to share with the Jumper community (now over 1700 visitors a month!)

If you think you might be able to lend a hand, then I’d love to hear from you! Emails to webmaster [at] puddle-jumper [dot] co [dot] uk, or webinfo [at] whatkatydid [dot] me [dot] uk. Thanks guys, you rock!
