Non-Christmas Christmas Movies – First View Review of First Blood

Whenever you hear of a film with Rambo in the title, you’ll no doubt think of wall to wall violence, tidal waves of blood, and a soundtrack consisting mainly of gunshots, screams, and explosions. You may also think of bulging biceps as Rambo hauls back on the string of a bow so he can pick […]

Look Up “Talent” And”Versatility” And You’ll Find Anthony Hopkins

There are ways of saying how old you are without saying how old you are. For instance, if you were to say that the first Doctor Who you remember watching is William Hartnell, then you’re of a significantly more mature vintage than if you remember, say, David Tennant. I was thinking there’d be a similar […]

MCU Disney+ Review – WandaVision

And here we go with the MCU’s dive into television. Incidentally, should it still be the MCU? Or should it now be the MCTVU? I guess that’s one of those questions which doesn’t require looking at too closely. Anyway, WandaVision is the first TV series from Marvel Studios and, also, the introduction to Phase Four, […]

Independent Films Reviewed in 2021

While the mainstream cinema has been hobbled by the necessary restrictions put in place by the pandemic, the smaller, independent producers haven’t been so restrained. In fact, I go as far as to say that some independent producers were actually inspired by the situation and managed to take advantage of empty streets and the high […]

Indie Movie Review – The Handler

The Handler is a fairly typical tale of a good guy who finds himself down on his luck and turns to crime. After a while, he decides that he wants to go back to clean living and leave the aforementioned life of crime behind him. Unfortunately, the big boss either knows that he’s the best […]

Christmas Classic First View Review – A Christmas Carol (1938)

Over the years I’ve seen a fair few versions of A Christmas Carol, or Scrooge as it’s sometimes called, but this 1938 version is a new one on me! There’s no point going too deeply into the story because, as both Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and Simply Red said, “If you don’t know […]

Christmas First View Review – An American Christmas Carol (1979)

Here we have an attempt to prove the ubiquity and relevance of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol by taking it from Victorian-era London and plonking it down in Depression-era Concord, New Hampshire. I don’t if there’s any significance in the location but the time has obviously been chosen as one of widespread poverty, debt, and hardship. […]

Vintage Christmas Film Short – Scrooge: Marley’s Ghost (1901)

Let’s start at the very beginning. A very good place to start… Before I get going, here’s a thought for a series of articles. How about first-time viewings of wildly popular films that I haven’t seen? I say this because I’ve never actually seen The Sound Of Music, Saturday Night Fever, or Citizen Kane. Anyway, […]

Christmas Classic First Watch Review – Christmas In Connecticut (1945)

I’ll admit that this was a total surprise. As is rapidly becoming traditional, here in RunPee Towers, this time of year means that there are Christmas films to be watched.  We do try and get other themes going for other holidays but, as a lot of them are unheard of outside of the USA, I […]

Christmas Classic First Watch Review – White Christmas (1954)

I’ve never been one to make any undue effort and, in a similar vein, I don’t like to waste any effort accidentally made. When I had my moment of confusion over Holiday Inn and White Christmas the obvious thing, to me, was to save the notes I’d made and use them in another review. And […]
