Pixar Feature Films

What is it about Pixar? I mean, we all love cartoons. We’ve all loved them from the days before we knew they were actually cartoons and not just a different part of reality. Kids loving cartoons is a given. Then, when we get older, there are cartoons specially made for grown ups. And that’s when […]

Rewatch Review – Toy Story 2

A couple of years later and along comes the inevitable sequel. But was Toy Story 2 so unavoidable? To be honest, there seemed to be some doubts amongst the powers that be at Disney. Initial plans were that Toy Story 2 was to be a straight to VHS release…it was the last millennium, after all, […]

Rewatch Review – Toy Story 3

And so we come to the conclusion of the Toy Story saga…at least that was the plan at the time. Andy has grown up; he’s now seventeen and about to head to college. Obviously the toys are now accustomed to being neglected. The ones that remain are left in a cupboard but, with Andy’s imminent […]

Rewatch Review – Toy Story

This is, ultimately, where it all began. Pixar’s first feature length computer animated film. I suppose a lot of people, nowadays, may wonder what all the fuss is about. Let’s be honest, as an animation, it was decades behind traditional techniques. I don’t want to make a big deal about it because Toy Story was […]

Jurassic Park And Other Dinosaur Films

Ah, dinosaurs. What is it about them that’s so fascinating? There can’t be many kids that don’t find them enthralling. A quick count of my grandchildren shows a 100% hit rate. Admittedly, that’s quite a small sample but a quick look around most toy shops suggests to me that they wouldn’t carry so much dino-stuff […]

Indie Movie Review – The Nudels Of Nudeland

I’ll be honest…I wasn’t sure what to expect from The Nudels Of Nudeland. The various bits of publicity blurb that I’ve seen say things like “A truly original story” and “A movie ahead of its time” but that wasn’t what I found. For a start, it wasn’t a “truly original story.”  I’m old enough to […]


I Feel The Need…The Need For Top Gun: Maverick

Cast your mind back to 11th July 2019. You might have been thinking fondly of getting tickets for the following day’s premiere of the longest awaited sequel. After all, Top Gun came out way back in 1986 so that made a thirty three year gap. It was set to be sandwiched between Spider-Man:Far From Home […]

Thirty Years Just Flies By – Strictly Ballroom – A Rewatch Review

On 10th May 1992 a film was premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and received a fifteen minute standing ovation. Then an agent from the Rank Organisation dashed in to snap up the UK film rights. It was the debut feature from a young Australian auteur who would go on to win awards for theatre, […]

Downton Abbey – A British Perspective…Sort Of

This week sees the American release of Downton Abbey 2: A New Era (read review of the first movie here) and I’ve been asked to write about it from a British point of view. This always makes me smile as, while the UK is only the 21st most populous country in the world, there’s still […]

Best of British Biographies – Christian Bale

Some actors can adopt any number of accents. Others are comfortable under pounds of prosthetics. Yet more can slim down, bulk up, or stack on mountains of muscle. It takes someone very special to be able to manage all three. I would argue that one such actor is Mr Christian Bale. To be honest, the […]
