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 Way Back

Movie: The Way Back

There has been nothing on for weeks, not even a decent Christmas film so I’ve decided I’m going to see at least one film this bank holiday weekend. Obviously there is the smattering of expected kiddie movies – none especially Christmassy, the unwatchable Rom-Com and two prison break out movies. None of these in my […]

Movie – Unstoppable

I had no idea what this movie was about before I saw it but….. I know, I start so many reviews like that but it’s most often the case when I see a preview, especially when it’s a last minute decision. To top it all we were a few minutes late but thankfully, they let […]

Movie – Machete

Movie – Machete

So Steven Seagal has taken a break from real-life law enforcing to make another film. He has second billing but it’s pretty clear from his first appearance that this time he’s not here to save the world; he’s here to take it for himself. This has to be the most gratuitous violent film I have […]

Movie – Another Year

Movie – Another Year

After the disappointment of ‘The Kids are All Right’, I’m looking forward to a nice, sweet film with some quirky British humour. I got it with this Mike Leigh trademark production. On a side note, this is the sort of film that many Americans just don’t get; it’s not full of people who are young […]

Julie & Julia

Forgot to put this on my Birthday list this year. Not that I desperately need it, I don’t cook and I don’t watch films on DVD, but it’s one of my favourite movies of recent years. Share the love…

Movie – The Town

Movie – The Town

Perhaps the American folk are right in saying this is the worse year for films; the theory is that the films out this year were put into production around 2008 when the banking world collapsed and nearly took us all with it. I’m extra thankful then for The Town released this year. I understand it […]

Movie – Grown Ups

Movie – Grown Ups

Not a film that appeals to me if something better is on. For a start I’m not the world’s biggest Adam Sandler fan and this smacks of boys toilet humour but Chris Rock should make a difference. There is some of that but rare for a comedy of this kind, you know, the type that’s […]

Movie – The Expendables

Movie – The Expendables

The story so far The story line did not have a bearing in my decision to watch this film. This is what did; Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Willis. Rourke is a bonus. When I unintentionally see the trailer, I realise what I thought would be a throwaway film full of one liners and in-jokes is in […]

Movie – Knight and Day

Movie – Knight and Day

Dull as **** I should have known better as these are two of my least favourite actors although Tom Cruse redeemed himself by being in one of all time favourites, The Last Samurai, Cameron Diaz never has. Have you ever walked out of a movie? Share the love…
