Mega November Review Round Up!

If anyone can tell me where November went I’d be very grateful. It’s nearly done, Christmas is a month away and I have been busy trying to get myself lined up to break the 100 visits to the cinema in a year target I set myself in January… At the moment I’m on 95! That’s…

Review – Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok (Marvel/Disney) Cert 12A, 130 mins I know, I know. I said the review would be up at the weekend. I was all excited having caught Thor: Ragnarok early and did not factor season two of Stranger Things going online and having to find time to binge watch it over a busy weekend. I…

Review – The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin (eOne) Cert 15, 107 mins Let’s be honest when it comes to comedy the last thing you would probably think of would be to take a sideways look at the death of one of the most brutal dictators in history. After all old Joe Stalin is thought to be responsible for…

Review – Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 (Sony/Columbia/Warner Bros/Alcon) Cert 15, 163 mins Sometimes when a long period of time has passed between a film and a sequel you wish they hadn’t bothered. There are various reasons for this. It can be that too much water has gone under the bridge. Times, tastes and audiences change. It should have…

Review – Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (20th Century Fox/Marv/Cloudy) Cert 15, 141 mins Before we go on if you haven’t see the first Kingsman film then this is not the post you are looking for. Plenty more to choose from so go off and read them if you’re after some of my ace reviews. Then go watch…

Review – Mother!

Mother! (Paramount/Protozoa) Cert 18, 121 mins Whatever director Darren Aronofsky envisaged audiences would think of his highly controversial feature Mother! I’m pretty sure he was not expecting a Thursday night crowd in Glasgow to leave the screening laughing. Which given the two hour bombardment of the senses we’d all sat through was a miracle. It…

Review – American Assassin

American Assassin (CBS Films/Lionsgate) Cert 18, 111 mins I went to see this primarily because of Michael Keaton. Ever since Birdman (and the title of overly pretentious please can we win all the Oscars) he’s been enjoying a fairly active and enjoyable period of his career having hit massive heights in the 1980s/1990s then fading…

Review – IT

IT (Warner Bros/New Line/Vertigo/Ratpac) Cert 15, 135 mins The film IT presents several problems for your friendly neighbourhood blogger. Firstly Mrs Blogger would rather use public transport than watch a horror film featuring a terrifying clown (or the news featuring Donald Trump) and she is rather cutely the biggest champion and fan of this blog…

September Preview

  First up apologies for the lack of any posts recently. The summer box office has been strangely quiet and I’ve been tres busy! I did manage to catch four films in two days at the end of August and I’ll pop up a brief but ultimately very entertaining and informative summary in another post…

Review – A Ghost Story

A Ghost Story (A24, Sailor Bear, Scared Sheetless) Cert 12a, 92 mins Ever wondered if there’s an afterlife? What becomes of us when we take our last breath? There are countless theories about it. Some people say that’s your lot and once you’re gone you’re gone. Others think we move onto another plane of existence…

Review – The Big Sick

The Big Sick (Amazon Studios/Apatow Productions/Filmnation) Cert 15, 120 mins Relationships can I’ve been told be a bit of a minefield at times. There’s a lot to balance out beyond being a couple – family, friends and despite love for each other there are differences to overcome like not appreciating that the Star Wars franchise…

San Diego Comic-Con – TV trailers

Did I mention on the movie trailer post that there would be a quiz? Just to see if you’re paying attention. I didn’t? Are you sure? Perhaps that is the test…read to the end to find out! Maybe… Here we are back again looking at San Diego Comic-Con. Biggest annual pop culture event on the…
