Well, this past Saturday saw the end of another series of the long-running BBC drama, and if I may play my hand early, this might be one of, if not the, best series since Doctor Who was rebooted, join me now as I look back episode by episode over this past series. Episode 1 - … Continue reading Doctor Who Series 10 Review (Spoiler-Free…Ish)
So, I've done a few current movie reviews, I thought I'd branch out and add my comments on an older film that I find particularly interesting, in one way or another. So, Clint Eastwood then, he's a bit of a marmite actor by all accounts, some like him, some don't, personally I can take or … Continue reading Gran Torino Review
Quite recently, I picked up Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for PS4. I had played Uncharted before, but not really stuck to it, my ineptitude in any game with guns in won out, but this time I've stuck with it, I'm about 75% through the first game and I'm enjoying it, I feel the shooting … Continue reading How Obnoxious Do Characters Have To Be Before We Dislike Them?
Was a tough one to name, this. Without the word 'movie' thrown in there it may have looked like a review of a place, and seeing as I've never visited Hampstead, neither know particularly where it is (although I've an inkling that it may be near London) that would be quite misleading. Anyway, Hampstead. You … Continue reading Hampstead Movie Review
So, from time to time, my fiancée chooses our film at the cinema, after this choice however, she might not for a long time. A film I was expecting less than nothing from somehow managed to still be disappointing even with the lowest possible expectations. I don't think I've ever sat through worse dross in … Continue reading The Boss Baby Review
So, Star Wars is going through somewhat of a resurgence recently. The Force Awakens made enough money to make Bill Gates blush, and Rogue One added another boatload of cash to the official Disney money-pile. Don't get me wrong, we've been reaping the rewards, Force Awakens was a more than worthy entry into the main … Continue reading Star Wars Prequels: A Rant
So, I went into this movie not expecting much. I'd enjoyed the first Two Pirates movies years ago, mostly for the swashbuckling adventure and Jack Sparrow, of course. But time was not kind to this franchise. It's third and fourth instalments both range from over-long to downright unnecessary. So will this fifth adventure bring life … Continue reading Pirate’s of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge Review
A few weeks ago, I took to this site to slate sequels and Hollywood's reliance on them, since then I've realised that the entire piece was much more one sided than I'd desired. So I thought I'd follow up now with a positive piece about sequels, for better or worse they have their place in … Continue reading On a Positive Note…
I'll be the first to tell you that I'm a bit obsessed with Doctor Who. I have well over 100 DVDs of it, Classic and NuWho, not to mention knowing slightly too much about it, seriously I'm like a living Doctor Who Encyclopaedia. What with the latest series currently lighting uo airwaves and gaining much … Continue reading The Great Doctor Debate
I've long said that there is no one in Hollywood as artistically bankrupt as Michael Bay. Churning out inconsequential sequel after inconsiquential sequel adding about as much to Hollywood as a fart does to a funeral. The Transformers films are the worst. I go to the cinema quite often, so as a result just recently … Continue reading How Many Sequels Do We Need?
