Review: Hellboy (2019)

When I started writing this post, I was all ready to go on a rant about the lack of originality in cinema these days and how reboots and remakes are saturating the market; but then I took a closer look at my previous posts and of the twenty-two that I have written so far, only…

Sunshine Blogger Award 2019

The Easter weekend has been and gone. A beautifully hot and sunny long weekend, and I was at working for all of it. Tuesday comes, and with everyone else reluctantly heading back to work, my days off started…. and the heavens opened. Typical!! However, there was a little sunshine (#sorrynotsorry) in my day, thanks to…

Movie Links #2

Hey Everyone! Welcome to the second installment of my ‘Movie Links’ series. Since my first post has gone live, I’ve learnt that our original car game is actually super similar to something called the ‘Oracle of Bacon’ or the ‘Six Degrees of Bacon‘. So in honour of this, my second post will be linking one…

Top Ten… MCU Films

The time is nearly here….Twenty-one films, over the course of eleven years, have all been leading up to this moment… Avengers: Endgame is just days away now. So, in order to pass away the last few days I thought I would rank my top ten favourite MCU films. 10. Black Panther (2018) I’ll admit that perhaps this…

Movie Links #1

Hey everyone! There is a game that Mark and I play when we are in the car which I thought might may for an interesting little series. Basically, you are given two actors and you have to create a chain of links to get from one to the other. One rule: No internet allowed! It…

Top Ten… MCU Superheroes

If you are a fan of comic book movies, then the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a big part of your life for the last eleven years and with its culmination almost upon us, I thought it would be fun to do a post ranking my top ten favourite MCU superheroes in preparation for the…

Review: Pet Sematary (2019)

If you’ve read some of my other stuff, you may already know that horror is one of my least favourite film genres. Whilst I do enjoy a good psychological thriller, more often than not horror films have no plot and an abundance of unnecessary jump-scares. Thankfully, the ‘King of Horror’ , Stephen King seems to…

Review: Dumbo (2019)

Am I the only one who is getting a little tired of all these live-action remakes of Disney classics? Whilst they are a good way of bringing classic stories to a new audience, a big part of me feels as though these live-action re-imaginings are somewhat undermining the many, many people, with incredible talent and…

Review: Tau (2018)

If you have seen my reviews for Close and Polar, you will already know that Tau was the third film we watched in a Netflix binge one night, but unlike the other two, I had not heard or seen anything about this A.I. thriller beforehand, although with Gary Oldman and Ed Skrein in the mix,…

March Wrap-Up and April Targets

Looking back, I am surprised and a little disappointed that I only saw four films at the cinema throughout the whole of March, however a full re-watch of both American Gods and Game of Thrones may have had something to do with it. That being said, I still managed to write twelve new posts and…
