Movie – The Amazing Spiderman

Movie – The Amazing Spiderman

The amazing Spiderman? Surely we’ll be the judge of that! It wasn’t on my must-see list as I didn’t enjoy the last Spiderman I saw – the one where he bought the dark suit and basically went to the dark side – so I’m not in a desperate rush to see this, except there is […]

Movie – Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Movie – Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Week two of reverting to my old cinema time of mid Friday afternoon and I have already got used to it again. There has always been something a little bit illicit going to the cinema at this time – then I go back to work and crack-on, fully refreshed. The title appealed to me (I […]

Movie – The Muppets

Movie – The Muppets

Confession time; I have never seen anything of the Muppets. I think I felt I was too old for it first time round but now seems the perfect age to enjoy it and in any case, I still recognise many of the characters, not just Kermit and Miss Piggy. I joined many other first time […]

Movie – The Descendants

Movie – The Descendants

I’ve come a long way since avoiding George Clooney films. It all started with seeing ‘Michael Clayton’ on my birthday in San Francisco as there was nothing else I wanted to watch and I’ve enjoyed ‘The Men Who Stare at Goats’ since. I don’t care for ‘Up in the Air’ though. And I still draw […]

Films of 2011

I’ve leant after years of being a Cineworld ‘Unlimited’ card holder that I’m generally in the minority with my taste in films. I mark the film purely on my cinematic experience rather than story, direction, photography, actors, script, soundtrack – actually no, soundtrack I do take into consideration. Therefore, a story can be mediocre but […]

Movie – War Horse

Movie – War Horse

I’m not as fond of animals as most but I love this film. It starts with the story of young Albert, the son of a hard on his luck Devon farmer who buys a young thoroughbred horse at an auction instead of plough horse that he desperately needed, mostly to spite his wealthy landlord that […]

Movie – The Iron Lady

Movie – The Iron Lady

The hype is guaranteed to be huge when you take into account the subject matter, the star and the many gags about it being the follow up to The Iron Man. It’s time to get up! It’s time go to work! It’s time to put the great, back into Great Britain! I’m not sure why […]

Movie – The Artist

Movie – The Artist

The most amusing quote I’ve heard about this film, ‘they don’t make them like that anymore. Well no, we’ve had sound on films for some years now. This is, as many have commentated, a delightful film, full of humour whilst dealing with the more serious issue of redundant actors making way for the new breed […]

Movie – Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Movie – Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

I’ve never seen any of the three MI movies, or James Bond or the Bourne series for that matter – although I’ve caught bits of the latter on TV. I’m not a huge fan of the Cruise and yet the Last Samurai is one of my favourite films, so here goes. It’s a standard albeit […]
