Brief Movie Roundup

I’ve been getting back into watching movies on a bit more of a regular basis and have watched some good and some bad recently. Here are my brief thoughts on what I’ve been watching for the first time: 1. The Gentlemen (2019) 9/10 I love Guy Ritchie movies and this was fantastic. The interweaving storytelling […]

Weekly Movie Roundup #3

Roxanne (1987) Steve Martin was in fine form for the most part but unfortunately he wasn’t enough to rescue Roxanne from mediocrity. He was charming, witty and had some great comedic scenes with Daryl Hannah but where Roxanne went wrong was about 30/40 minutes in. The opening was really good and had me chuckling often […]

Weekly Movie Roundup #2

The Hustle (2019) I did not know this film existed until I stumbled across it on Netflix this week and I saw the cast which was the main thing that lured me in. Anne Hathaway is more often than not enjoyable to watch and she’s so diverse that she can star in emotional masterpieces such […]

Top 10 Musicals

Ahhhhh musicals, a genre of movie that I used to love as a kid with Disney classics such as Aladdin, Aristocats, Dumbo & The Jungle Book amongst others as the list of great Disney animations goes on and on.

Movie Review: Birds of Prey (2020)

Starring: Margot Robbie, Ewan McGregor and Jurnee Smollett-Bell Directed by: Cathy Yan My first trip to the cinema of 2020 and it was to see a movie that I wasn’t really excited for at all. I saw the trailers some time ago and thought it all looked rather meh despite Harley Quinn being one of […]

It’s been a while

Not quite sure what to say here, as some of you may be aware I used to use this platform almost on a daily basis back in 2018 where I reviewed every movie I watched that year racking up a total of 270 reviews. Then the turn of the year happened and everything became crazy […]

Movie Review: xXx: The Return of Xander Cage (2017)

I know I did say I’d review all the great movies I’ve been watching but in the last couple of weeks most of the films have either been mediocre or good with nothing really standing out as truly exceptional. I’ve seen movies such as Bull Durham, The Highwaymen, Dumplin’, Stronger and Black ‘47 all of […]

MY TOP…20 Animated Movies

Animated movies are something that largely remind me of when I was younger and times were much simpler. My whole life was ahead of me and I could spend my days watching cartoons, playing in the park and playing with toys, what a time to be alive. As a kid I used to love the […]

Movie Review: An Unfinished Life (2005)

I did say in my returning post a couple days ago that I was going to save my movie reviews for both the best of the best and the truly awful and anything in between I wasn’t going to bother as I’d probably fall back into finding writing movie reviews too time consuming which I’d […]

2018 Yearly Movie Roundup

At the beginning of the 2018 I really didn’t know what to expect when I relaunched my blog as I had attempted to do it the previous year but fell behind and was always playing catch up so just knocked the project on the head. This year I was determined to make it the entire […]

Movie Roundup…December 2018

Here we are, the final month of the year has passed as we approach the beginning of 2019. My yearly goal was to watch as many movies for the first time as possible and to surpass my last years total of 209 which I absolutely smashed as I ended up with a nice round number […]
