Sunday Night Slashers Vol. 2: A Nightmare on Elm street

It’s week 2 of the Sunday Night Slashers series, and given that I’ve named the series after my favorite sub-genre of horror, the slasher, I don’t know why I didn’t start with this one. When you think of a good old fashioned slasher, one from the glory days of the genre in the late 70’s […]

Army of the Dead Review

When I first heard about this movie, to say I was excited is an understatement – the zombie movie genre is probably my absolute favourite to be honest and it’s one of those genres where, when you’re a fan, you know that your expectations are never super high. There are SO many zombie films and […]

The Complete Star Wars Time Line

I’m hoping that I’ve got everything in pretty much the right order – it has been a little tricky because there are of course some things which over-lap slightly and then also bits where there might be flashbacks in a film or series which relate to something else entirely. Without giving a full breakdown to […]

Frozen Fever Review

I was never going to do a review of this thing because I actually thought that all 7 minutes of it were just a little Disney short – an extended music video for a new song as a little bonus feature in the Disney+ Frozen collection… But no, this is much more than that! I […]

Star Wars Vintage: The Story of the Faithful Wookiee Review

What on earth is this!?!?!?! On Disney Plus they just added a new little section to the Star Wars area which is a set of vintage Star Wars videos, including this little animation. It’s called the Story of the Faithful Wookiee and was actually a part of the old Star Wars holiday special which no […]

17 Easter Eggs in Disney’s Moana Which You Might Have Missed

It has been well documented over the years that the animators for Disney love a good Easter egg – that is something within a movie which gives a nod or reference to something else (usually in this case another Disney movie or staff). In the past some of these have been controversial and caused a […]

Justice League: The Snyder Cut Review

I have to say that I’m more of a Marvel guy myself and even then I’m by no means fanatical about it. I just always felt that Marvel are good at making their movies cleaner, brighter, funnier and just generally more watchable than DC. I do understand that DC is a much darker brand (although […]

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Review

When I remembered that this film existed I was actually looking for the third season of Stranger Things, which I’ve sadly not yet seen as I don’t have Netflix, so Amazon Prime suggested I might enjoy Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark… And it wasn’t wrong! If you’re looking for Stranger Things and want […]

Banksy & the Rise Of Outlaw Art Review

This is a feature length documentary which yesterday premiered on UK tv on Sky Arts… and by feature length I mean 2 hours long! This means that it’s by far the longest Banksy related documentary which I have seen, and whilst it does touch on some other artists and the history of graffiti in general […]

Justice League: the Snyder Cut Trailer Reaction

The Snyder cut of the Justice League is something which fans have been lobbying to see for years now and something which has always been kind of on the table and then off the table and then back on the table again. I think the current climate and difficulty it brings to filming new movies […]

Dragon Rider Review

Just in time for the half term here in the UK (not that the kids have been at school to be able to enjoy a break from), Sky cinema have released their own animated movie and for now at least it’s a Sky exclusive. The easiest way to describe it in a nut shell is […]

Robin Williams “Your Move Chief” Speech in Good Will Hunting

One thing which Robin Williams was always very well known for is his ability to recite speeches with raw emotion, flawlessly and effortlessly – a truly inspirational actor whom the entertainment world misses dearly. One of his most well known speeches is known as the “Your move chief” speech during the movie Good Will Hunting, […]

Apocalypse of Ice Review

WOW! What an absolute pile of dung… It’s really no wonder that this film has started getting a viral following, purely based on how terrible it is. The reviews for this thing pretty much across the board have been awful, and I mean, mine isn’t going to be any better… Having said that – all […]

Sarahs Story to Toby at the Start of Labyrinth

At the start of the film Sarah tells Toby a story, and it’s a story which seems to become far more familiar as the movie continues. It’s not necessarily a direct echo of her own existence but you can certainly see the parallels between this short story and the rest of the movie as it […]

The Words Sarah Must Recite in the Labyrinth to Defeat Jareth

There is a speech which Sarah gives at the start of the film and it is the same one which she must recite again at the end of the film in order to defeat Jareth and be free of the labyrinth, however there is a difference between the two speeches, as she leaves out the […]

Die Hard 2: Die Harder Review

In our home we have two entertainment based traditions, with the first being that we watch the Big Fat Quiz of the Year just after Christmas, and the second being that over the festive period we’ll have a Die hard movie marathon… We fit in as many as we can, and the most we’ve managed […]

Tales from the Lodge Review

I saw this on Amazon Prime where they described it as a film about a group of friends pushing 40…  Uhmmmm let’s start with the fact that 50 year old Johnny Vegas is in this film and go with another description I found about a group of 40 something year old friends…  We’re a bit […]

Ready Or Not Review

I looked at watching this a few times as it has been on Sky Cinema for a few weeks now and for some reason I just kept putting it off. From the description of the movie to the cast it doesn’t look overly enticing. It’s a film about a girl who marries in to a […]

Best Alternative Christmas Movies

There are so many alternative movies you can watch on or around the Christmas period rather than being stuck with the same old same old… How many times have you watched Elf (and right now let me be open and say that I absolutely hate that film), Jingle all the way (which is actually not […]

Bloodshot Review

Wow… where to begin with this one – and sadly I don’t mean that in the good way! I’m usually quite a big fan of Vin Diesel movies, but this one was pretty close to absolute garbage. I actually thought that I would struggle to write a non-spoiler review but to be fair they do […]

10 Movies to Watch on Sky Cinema in the run up to Halloween

Sky cinema is a great way to get access to a wide range of movies at a negligible price – it’s one of those packages which we added to our sky account and never looked back. It’s actually pretty much what killed our DVD collection and a year after first getting it we got rid […]

IT: Chapter 2 Review

After Pennywise was defeated in the first movie by the Losers club – a close knit group of outcasts for one reason or another, the kids grew up and most of them moved away to start their adult lives as risk assessors, authors, comedians and all sorts of other grown up things. One loser (Mike) […]
