Movie : The Man From U.N.C.L.E

Movie : The Man From U.N.C.L.E

The trailer for this had about as much appeal as a James Bond film but there’s nothing else on so not so I go to see it the understanding Huge Grant would lift it. And for the 12 second he was on, that happened. Sadly that was it. I vaguely remember this from my childhood, […]

Movie – Philomena

Movie – Philomena

Am I going to continue my run of good films started before I went away to Canada in October? This has all the ingredients; namely Dame Judi Dench and a great story of a 70-something-old looking for her son who was taken away from her in Catholic Ireland some fifty years previously. Once I got […]

Movie – Worlds End

Movie – Worlds End

I try to watch British films even if the storyline is not really my thang. If you think about it, if this was American, it would be set in small town boredom and have the five comic actors that play themselves in every ‘funny’ film that I never watch. But it’s British, so here I […]

Movie – Sightseers

Movie – Sightseers

  A must see because I like to support British films, unless I absolutely have no interest in the subject matter obviously. Billed as a dark comedy, Sightseers seems like it could be really good but it didn’t quite get there. In the rush to be clever, I felt like some of the humour was […]

Movie – West is West

Movie – West is West

Everyone it appears knows there’s a follow up to 1999’s East is East out except the regular cinema goer, me. The first film falls into the 50/50 category; the first half is great, the second half is too sad to see again, similar to that Aussie Abba-fest, Muriel’s Wedding. East is East has me falling […]

Best movies of 2010

Best movies of 2010

It’s mid-way through February and I’ve already got to a week when there’s nothing I want to see at the cinema. So I’m looking back to 2010, otherwise known as ‘the worst year for films in my lifetime’. I still have high hopes for 2011, I’m sure it’s just a glitch. Best films of 2010 […]

Movie – Kick-Ass

Movie – Kick-Ass

I was planning to see this movie for the title alone and all the rave reviews have not put me off. The hype did alert me to the good news that Mark Strong is in it and I’m hoping this film is in the 50% of Nicholas Cage films that are good. But Kick Ass […]
