May Wrap Up & June Targets

I can’t believe how quick May has gone. It truly has been a ‘blink and you miss it’ type of month. Looking back, if I’m honest, I’m not really sure how I feel about how my month has gone. On the one hand, I have not written five posts that I had originally planned to in…

Review: Rocketman (2019)

Given the success of Bohemian Rhapsody last year and the upcoming releases of Judy, Stardust and So Much Love, musical biopics are having their moment in the spotlight. I can assure you though, that no other film you see this year will be as spectacularly flamboyant and entertaining as Rocketman. However, this is a film that…

Series Review: GoT 8.6 – The Iron Throne

Review: John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum

The first John Wick was one of those films that comes out of nowhere and takes you by surprise, however, I felt the second one was a little lack lustre and, dare I say it, boring. That being said, the third installment in the John Wick franchise was one of Mark’s most highly anticipated films…

Review: Long Shot (2019)

There’s been so much great stuff on TV and Netflix lately that I’ve kind of been neglecting the cinema a little bit. Therefore, I’ve told Mark that this month we need to catch up a little and make up for lost time. With the sun coming out and the weather warming up, there’s nothing better…

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Spoiler Alert: In honour of Avengers: Endgame, I thought I would do a link up between the two actors who are definitely not coming back; Scarlett Johannson (Black Widow) and Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man). However, that turned out to be a little too easy so I extended it to include another…

Series Review: GoT 8.5 – The Bells

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe there is only one more episode before we are left with a very large Game of Thrones shaped hole in our lives. Things are happening quickly now, leading up to who knows what, but if they stay true to their style, it will be something dramatic…

Review: Hellboy (2019)
