Review: Murder Mystery (2019)

I will hold my hands up and admit that all of Adam Sandler’s movies fall very firmly into the B-movie category and Murder Mystery is no exception. However, sometimes a hard-hitting, thought provoking intellectual masterpiece is not what you want when you fancy a good old fashioned duvet day, and in that respects, Sandler is…

Series Review: Bodyguard (2018)

The British thriller series, Bodyguard, has been on my must-watch list since it first aired on the BBC back in August of last year but it always seemed to take a back seat. This weekend, we finally got around to watching it on Netflix and I’ll be honest, it had me hooked from the beginning,…

Series Review: Stranger Things Season 3

Typically, I am usually a little late when it comes to catching new series; I didn’t get into Game of Thrones until just before the fourth season, I did a massive binge-watch of Vikings ready for season 5 and I hadn’t even heard of Peaky Blinders until last year. But Stranger Things is one that…

Movie Links #12

Happy Wednesday! This week me and a work colleague had a minor disagreement in the office over who was a better Spider-Man: Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield. I even created a poll on Twitter, to prove my point, but thanks to you rubbish lot, I lost!! 🙂 Even though I am super competitive, I graciously…

Review: Toy Story 4 (2019)

I’m sure I am not alone in thinking that Toy Story 3 was the perfect end to a beautiful and incredibly moving trilogy, so when Pixar Studios announced a fourth installment, I admit, I was both angry and disappointed, thinking Pixar had turned to the cash-grabbing dark side. That being said, there was no question…

June Wrap-up & July Targets

First off, I should apologise to all my followers because June was an absolutely shocking month for movies, with only one trip to the big screen all month!! I think the hot weather went to my head a bit, and I was well and truly in holiday mode. I even missed Dark Phoenix which was…

Movie Links #11

Happy Wednesday! Another Wednesday, another ‘Movie Links’ post to help you get through the rest of the week. Seeing as season 3 of Stranger Things starts tomorrow (!!), for this week’s post I though that I would link-up the cutest couple in the world; Eleven and Mike, aka Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard. https://images.app.goo.gl/pmCiqEjap7TnJgML9…

Review: Brightburn (2019)

As some of you may know by now, horror is not my genre of choice but one sure-fire way to pique my interest is to add a superhero element. If you throw James Gunn into the mix then I am sold. As a result, I was quietly excited about Brightburn, which despite being directed by…

Movie Links #10

Happy Wednesday! With the Women’s Football World Cup in the knockout stages and Wimbledon just around the corner, this week’s Movie Links post takes inspiration from the world of sport, linking up Bend It Like Beckham (2002) and Wimbledon (2004). Here we go… Bend It Like Beckham stars….. Jonathan Rhys Meyers who was in Vikings…

73 Questions | Vogue Parody

’73 Questions’ is a feature in Vogue magazine, where they ask the biggest celebrities 73 quick-fire questions, however it has recently been doing the rounds within the blogging community and is a great way to learn the little things about the people behind the blog. I was nominated by the lovely Sassy Cat Lady, Amy…

Series Review: Chernobyl (2019)

With the final series coming to an end, I was worried that I wouldn’t find anything to fill the Game of Thrones shaped hole in my life, but then along comes writer, Craig Mazin (Hangover 2, Identity Thief) with the hard-hitting HBO mini-series, Chernobyl, which is currently sitting pretty as the highest rated series on IMDB….

Movie Links #9

Happy Wednesday! It’s time for another movie link to get you through the rest of the week. At the time of going live I am chillaxing on holiday in Norway, so this week’s link-up has a Scandinavian theme, linking Norwegian actor, Kristofer Hivju with Swedish actor, Stellan Skarsgard. Here goes… Kristofer Hivju was in Fate…

Top Ten… Movie Dads

Father’s Day is here and that means its time for a new themed post celebrating some great father-figures in movies. Whilst my favourites were fairly easy to choose, ranking them was nigh on impossible, so I decided against an official ranking. And so, in no particular order, here’s my ten favourite movie dads. Alfred Pennyworth…

Holibobs!!!

Hello all my lovely Popcorn Peeps! This is just a quick post to let you know that I will not be very active on my blog for the next week (16th-23rd June 2019) as I am heading off on holiday to celebrate Mark’s birthday. He’s hitting the big 3-0!!! I will return any comments on…

Top Ten… Pixar Shorts

When it comes to animation, I know that most people will think of Disney first, but for me, Pixar is always what springs to mind. **I know that it is now technically Disney Pixar but in my mind they will always be separate studios. You can fight me on it :)** One of my favourite…

Movie Links #8

Happy Wednesday Everyone! It’s time for a new movie link post. This week’s link up from Daniel Craig to Jared Harris is inspired by some of the biggest talking points of the past week; Bond 25 and Chernobyl. Daniel Craig’s last outing as the iconic British spy has been plagued with problems from the offset…

Review: Aladdin (2019)

If you have read some of my other reviews, you are probably aware that I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with remakes and reboots, especially when it comes to live-action remakes of classic animated films. Some have smashed it out of the park (Beauty and the Beast) whereas others have fallen woefully short…

Movie Links #7

Happy Wednesday!! Welcome to the latest post in my ‘Movie Links’ series. For this week’s post, I thought I would have a little fun with it, and link up Jon Favreau with Christina Ricci. Why these two, you ask? Favreau plays Happy Hogan in the MCU films and Ricci plays Wednesday Addams in the Addams…
