The Bad Guys

It has been so long since I have reviewed anything! In fact, I just checked and my last review was in November 2020. So this might be one heck of a rusty review, please forgive me in advance. My eldest daughter, April, is finally old enough to come along to family movies with me and give her perspective on ...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

I have a problem. I’m not sure I can fix it. Can I write a reliable review in this state?! How long has it been? How much am I looking forward to this? Sitting with a friend to watch a movie, in the cinema…! Getting a popcorn and a drink, finding my seat. Hearing the excited chatter of everyone else w...

Tom & Jerry

Typically found in short episodic adventures, Tom & Jerry have been given a makeover for the big screen, just in time for the school holidays. The playful pair have moved to NYC, Jerry is on the hunt for a new house and Tom is pursuing his dream to become a famous musician. But when Jerry makes himself ...

Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs

Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs (Dwarves? Dwarfs? I’m not too sure) is one of those modern day fairy tale movies you really really REALLY want to love… but end up missing the mark completely.  With a rocky introduction to the public with some… very questionable… marketing, this film does its best ...

Jumanji: The Next Blu-ray

If you haven’t seen Jumanji: The Next Level and want a good time, see it. I loved it. Not necessarily as good as the first, but it at least adds something new and they did it well. In fact, if you loved the first one, you might as well get the sequel on blu-ray because it is a BALL. The film is fun, l...

8 Reasons you need to add Frozen 2 to your collection

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (the Blu-ray Edition)

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was one of the best movies of 2019. An absolutely worthy sequel to its fantastical magical 2014 predecessor, worth it alone for Angelina Jolie & Elle Fanning’s stellar performances. Especially all the special Maleficent/Aurora bonding moments. On the off-chance you still hav...

Sonic the Hedgehog makes a dash for your heart

We all know the dark history of video game movie adaptations. There are only a sparse few that I’ve genuinely enjoyed as a film, most notably Detective Pikachu in recent memory. Fortunately for Sonic the Hedgehog, it too has made that prestigious achievement. Yep. I enjoyed this one. It’s not as...

Happy Chinese New Year: The Secret of Nimh

Well it’s the year of the Rat, a year that symbolises wealth and fertility! To tell the truth, I hope any year with its animal would have those two columns for me to sign my name in. But here we are, 2020, The Rat.  We are used to a western perspective of the rat. It’s a bad news animal with good reaso...

Jumanji: The Next Level

The first time I watched Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, I was hesitant. “It’s really good!” said Di, but did I believe her? It had Jack Black in it, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I mean, I like Karen Gillan, but overall it just looked like a stupid, unfunny movie. Long story ...

Cats

Cats! It’s the film where as soon as the trailer came out everybody said WHY. I wasn’t too weirded out by everybody dancing in CGI fur-suits, but I appeared to be in the minority there. Surely watching a cast of high profile actors pretending to be cats would be … entertaining? Let’s begin...

Rise of Skywalker: An Ode to Leia

Star Wars has always been an integral part of my life – to the point that I have a tattoo of Leia/Carrie Fisher proudly displayed on my forearm. I’m far from alone in this love  and I’m far from alone in my love for Carrie Fisher. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is a not so gentle reminder that women...
