Halloween (1978) Review

Throughout October, I’ve been looking at a genre that I haven’t given much thought to in the past, that being the Horror genre; there’s no better time of the year to look at some spooky films than this month after all, and we now arrive at the film whose name derives from the holiday that…

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Review

So, the first film in this series got me into it; invited me inside, made me a cup of tea, now it’s up to the sequel to fetch the biscuits and keep me entertained with an anecdote or two. This analogy fell apart quite quickly, didn’t it? Never mind, I’m pressing ahead anyway… Even though…

The Hunger Games Review

I must admit that this franchise passed me by entirely. The height of its popularity came and went just after I was outside of its target demographic; and in truth, it seems like a franchise I could quite easily get into, but hadn’t had the time to do so, but now my options are limited,…

The Nightmare Before Christmas Review

Is it a Christmas film? Is it a Halloween film? Well, let me put this argument to bed, it’s both, there the argument is solved. Also, pineapple does go on pizza (if you want it to) and Jaffa Cakes are cakes, not biscuits. Alternatively, why don’t we just forget restricting films to a certain season,…

An Ode to Cineworld

There are very few times when my film writing and my creative writing intersect, but given the situation unfolding with Cineworld (sadly, I can’t see them being the only ones) I decided it was time those two worlds met, and I composed this short poem in tribute to my usual cinema of choice… There you…

The Shining Review

When I put out a vote on my social media to pick my next review, I deliberately picked horror films, with it being October now, and I must admit, this film was a last-minute addition. I wanted four horror films, and more to the point, four horror films in my collection, with an already established…

A Look Back at September

This year seems to be flying by and yet also seeming to last forever, it’s incredible. Almost like the Batman v Superman of years, it seems twice as long as all regular years, and yet it still glosses over a lot of the content. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed that tortured analogy, as it’s the…

The Big Lebowski Review

There are a lot of classic films that are on my ‘to see’ list and believe me, it grows by the day as people message me and ask me to review old black-and-white Soviet films that are all analogies about capitalism (I’m only mildly exaggerating, okay, moderately) but there are a few that I want…

The One and Only Ivan Review

So, I’ve been quiet recently, as it turns out that moving city is quite time-consuming, who knew? Anyway, I haven’t had time to get to the cinema in the past few weeks, so I haven’t reviewed anything. But, between packing and shifting boxes, I got a chance to watch the latest Disney+ original film, The…

Site Update

Howdy! Howdy? Blimey, I’m never saying that again. Hello readers, old and new, I hope you’re all well and keeping safe in the current strange times. You might have noticed in the past week or so that my output has somewhat decreased. This has been for a reason, I haven’t been to the cinema in…
