Review – Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Marvel Studios are the modern-day Pavlov, they ring their new release bell and the masses come running, myself included. After being both underwhelmed and rather disappointed with Avengers: Endgame I really fancied a bit of a break from the MCU but Far From Home is the final installment of both Phase 3, and the ‘Infinity…

Movie Links #15

Happy Wednesday! With Jon Favreau’s The Lion King currently smashing it at the box office, and the new, much talked about, Cats trailer being released, this week’s ‘Movie Links’ post takes on a musical feline theme, linking music sensations Beyoncé (Nala – The Lion King) and Taylor Swift (Bombalurina – Cats). Beyoncé was in Austin…

Blogger Recognition Award 2019

Forget the Oscars, it feels as though awards season has come early! Over the last few weeks, I have been lucky enough to receive nominations for three different blogging awards, which is incredibly humbling. It’s amazing to know that people read and like my stuff enough to consider me, especially when there are SO MANY…

Liebster Award 2019

Just knowing that people read your blog is amazing, so receiving an award of any kind is definitely the cherry on top. For this award, I was nominated by the lovely Charli over at Life With Charli, so get on over there and check her blog out. So, what is the ‘Liebster Award’? The Liebster…

New Feature: Retro Reviews

For someone who considers themselves something of a movie fan, I am woefully ignorant to, what some may call, the ‘classics’. Therefore, I will soon be starting a new feature, probably once a month, where I review an older film. I’ll be honest, I am a little nervous about this idea, as I know that…

Movie Links #14

Happy Wednesday! It’s time for another movie link-up. There has been an awful lot going on in the world of film over the last week or so, what with the likes of San Diego Comic-Con and the announcement of this year’s Emmy nominations, and it is these two events that have inspired this week’s post….

Mystery Blogger Award

If you are a member of the blogging community or you have read my Sunshine Blogger Award post then you will already know that there are awards given to bloggers, by bloggers, in recognition of their work. And trust me, there is a lot of time and effort that goes into creating and maintaining a…

Movie Links #13

It’s that time again… Happy Wednesday. The number thirteen may be unlucky for some but this week it will have some time in the spotlight. For my thirteenth movie link post, I will be linking up the movies; Apollo 13 and Ocean’s Thirteen. Apollo 13 (1995) stars….. Ed Harris, who was in Stepmom (1998) with……..

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…
