Happy New Year faithful readers 🙂 As time is on our minds let’s take a trip back to 1993 where we find an 18-year-old me excitedly waiting for the release of Jurassic Park, playing football and making his way in the…

Review – Pitch Perfect 3

Pitch Perfect 3 (Universal/Gold Circle Productions/Brownstone) Cert 12A, 93 minutes THIS BLOG WAS SANCTIONED BY MRS BLOGGER. JUST IN CASE ANYONE FEARS FOR MY SAFETY AFTER READING IT. The first Pitch Perfect film came out of nowhere back in 2012 and was a huge global success. I shouldn’t have liked it. But I did. Frankly…

Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Lucasfilm) Cert 12A, 152 mins SPOILER FREE! BUT GOES ON FOR AGES. DON’T CARE. IT IS STAR WARS. Regular readers will know that Star Wars is a big part of my life so the release of a new movie in the series every year since 2015 has made Christmas something…

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…
