Top Ten… Pixar Movies

The recent influx of live-action remakes of animated films has helped to increase my appreciation for the art form, I just keep my fingers crossed that they leave Pixar’s movies well and truly alone. As a way to show my appreciation of the skill and talent that goes into making an animated movie, I wanted…

Review: Woodstock Or Bust (2019)

It’s the summer of 1969 and two aspiring teenage singer-songwriters Meryl (Meg DeLacy) and Lorian (Willow Shields) are frustrated by their lack of prospects, tired of playing at retirement homes and birthday parties, the two best friends are looking to get some bigger gigs. An advert for Woodstock Music Festival inspires a road trip to…

Pippin: The Most Pivotal Character In Lord of the Rings

For my latest post, I thought I would do something a little different , I am going to explain to you all, why I think that Peregrin ‘Pippin’ Took is the most pivotal character in the Lord of the Rings (film) franchise. Now this might seem like a bit of a hard sell considering that…

Review: The Great Hack (2019)

At risk of making myself sound like an old Grandma on her rocking chair, I am of an age where I can remember how new the internet was. That awful dialling tone when I wanted to do research for homework, chatting to school friends on MSN, and waiting FOREVER if you wanted to download or…

Review: The Lion King (2019)

In the past I have moaned a lot about the sheer number of remakes, reboots and unnecessary sequels that are being churned out at the moment, and it seems that Disney are one of the worst culprits. The thing is, as frustrated as I am by this fact, I, along with everyone else, will trudge…

Movie Links #17

Happy Wednesday, it’s time for a new movie link up. This week is inspired by the first post in my new feature ‘Retro Reviews‘ and the BBC finally announcing the release date for season 5 of Peaky Blinders, so will see us linking up Robert De Niro to Cillian Murphy. Robert De Niro was in…

Review: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Who could have possibly imagined that a simple film about street racing would lead to a franchise spanning eighteen years, and counting! Admittedly, there was a rocky patch following the third film, Tokyo Drift, but the F&F franchise shifted gear (eh!!) and came back stronger than ever. I can’t immediately recall the last film to…

Retro Review: Taxi Driver (1976)

You may remember that last month I teased the start of a new feature: Retro Reviews. While it does exactly what it says on the tin, here’s a quick reminder as what my rules are. Should be a first time viewing. More than 5 years since original release Must watch in full The honour of…

Another month is over, the kids have broken up for the Summer holidays and we’ll soon be talking about Christmas. Can you believe how quickly this year is going? Although I am not completely happy with how productive I have been this month, it is a definite improvement on June, and I even managed to…

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…

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.

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.
