Sharknado and Sharknado 2

-+*I watched Sharknado a few months ago and it was brilliant. I have this nagging doubt that they were serious when they were filming it, which only adds to the quality of what they produced. There are great movies, good movies, bad movies and movies that are so bad they come full circle and become great. […]

Fifty Shades of Grey

-+*The wife was in town last night and decided we should see Fifty Shades of Grey. Despite having only seen each other about 4 times (including yesterday) since we got married on the boat at OUGN2014, I like to think this is not an indicator that our relationship is on the rocks… OMG. What a terrible film! […]

Ex Machina

-+*Nephew #2 was in a football tournament near to me and parents weren’t allowed to watch, so my brother dropped him off and paid me a visit. I don’t have furniture, so when someone comes to see me we have to go out. We decided to go to the cinema to watch Ex Machina. If you’ve seen […]

The Black Hole

-+*I was re-watching Who’s Afraid of the Big Black Hole on YouTube and I got all nostalgic about the 1979 film The Black Hole. A couple of clicks on Google Play and I bought and watched it. Flippin’ awesome! Considering this is 35 years old, it’s stood the test of time pretty well. There are certainly […]

The Hobbit : The Battle of the Five Armies

-+*I’ve just got back from watching The Hobbit : The Battle of the Five Armies. I didn’t see the previous film at the cinema because I couldn’t be bothered. I watched it on a plane some time later. When my friends texted me to ask if I wanted to see this film I started to […]

The Expendables 3

-+*It’s a holiday weekend and I just got back from watching The Expendables 3. OK. You don’t go to a film like this expecting an Oscar winning script, but come on! During the end credits, when it said “Story by Sylvester Stallone”, I thought of a scene from Boogie Nights where they discus the plot […]

Lucy

-+*I’ve had a day off today, so as well as swimming, starting to clear out my junk room and going to the pub to say “see ya” to a colleague who is going on maternity leave, I went to see Lucy. Let me start by saying this is pretty much a rip-off of Akira. Not in a […]

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

-+*Today’s film was Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I really enjoyed the first film and this is a continuation of that story, set 10 years later. The pacing on this film was pretty similar to the last one. If you are one of the people that found that too slow, you will have a […]

Guardians of the Galaxy

-+*I’ve just got back from seeing Guardians of the Galaxy. Take note Sci-Fi movie makers! This is your competition! This is what you need to aim to outdo! It’s very cool. It looks great. You quickly start to give a crap about the characters. It doesn’t take itself too seriously. Favourite Character: Groot. I challenge anyone […]

Edge of Tomorrow

-+*I went to see Edge of Tomorrow today. You will see reviews that say it’s a Sci Fi version of Groundhog Day, and that is kind-of true, but in a good day. It’s not overly endowed with plot, but it’s a pretty good Sci Fi flick. I think from now on Emily Blunt should be in every film! […]
