Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey Review

Christmas movies are, if done right, a license to print money. They’re played on a loop on TV for a month at least, they also tend to get a fair bit more slack than other films. Negativity tends to be put aside because: ‘come on, it’s Christmas!’ I myself am guilty of this from time…

The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special Review

When I said at the start of the month that I’d be looking at streaming releases, I certainly didn’t expect anything like this. Being the ardent Star Wars fan that I am, I am aware of the Star Wars Holiday Special by its reputation; I have never been enough of a masochist to seek it out and watch it…

Clue Review

It is a truth universally acknowledged that everyone likes Tim Curry. I have yet to meet a single person who doesn’t love him, and it has been said that you can tell a lot about a person from what film they most know him from. So, when someone offered to lend me a film starring…

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Review

Imagine my surprise, dear readers, when I read a few months ago that a new film starring the Borat character was in the pipeline. I had assumed the once ubiquitous character was long-dead, a mere shadow of what had been possible, but I was wrong. You can’t particularly blame me for thinking this; after all,…

The Lost Boys Review

So last week I reviewed a film from the 80s considered by many to be a classic, and may have dropped hints in that review that it wasn’t my favourite period; and so to carry on that point, one of my correspondents (thank you, Ian) sent me this film to review. I knew of this…

Zombieland Review

There are few things in popular culture more over-done than Zombies. They’ve been everywhere for what seems like an eternity, be it video games, films, books; nowhere is same from the shambling horrors, and like many people, I am truly sick of the sight of them. There can’t be that many things left to do…

The Karate Kid (1984) Review

There are many films that some consider ‘classics’ that I have never watched, not for any reasons of bias, I just haven’t managed to get around to them, and other things have been competing for my attention. This is what the recent lull in cinema releases is allowing me to correct, with no new releases,…

Memories of Murder Review

There’s been an ignition of interest this year surrounding the films of Bong Joon-ho, this appetite has been cooled-down somewhat by the world events unfolding all around us in recent months, but it seemed like a turning point when he took this years Oscars by storm. I had floated the idea around that time that…

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 Review

Well, it’s time to bring this little expedition to a close. I never planned from the outset to review all of these films, and certainly not in such a short space of time, but left with not much to do stuck at home, I ended up watching them all a few days apart, partly out…

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…
