Movie Review – Greyhound

This is twice in one week that Tom Hanks has been in the navy here. A couple of days ago I watched Captain Phillips, and today it’s Greyhound, so Mr. Hanks crossed from the Merchant Navy to the Royal Navy, or whatever the American equivalent is. Greyhound is an adaptation of a CS Forester novel […]


Movie Review – Irresistible

I like Steve Carell, most usually in his comedy roles. (I thought the American version of The Office went downhill after he left). He’s also good in his dramatic turns. The Big Short, Marwen, and The Morning Show all were excellent and gave him a chance to show off his serious chops. Add to that […]


Movie Review – Artemis Fowl

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear… I was really disappointed by Artemis Fowl.  Not because it was a bad film — it wasn’t — nor because it was badly made because, again: it wasn’t. The cast was (mostly) good, the effects were spot on, and the acting was fine. My disappointment was because the film […]

Brit Classic Franchise Renewal: Should We Carry On?

Those of you living outside of the UK might not be aware of the Carry On franchise, but over here they formed the backbone of late 20th century entertainment. Thirty films spread over the period 1958-1978 including a highlights compilation, four Christmas specials, a television series of thirteen episodes, three stage plays, and a misjudged […]

Remembering James Bond — Seeing Goldfinger live in the theater

So what do Pierce Brosnan and I have in common? Both voted “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine in 2001? Both about 6’2”? Both have had a license to kill? Only one of those three is correct but there is something else that we have in common… the first film we saw in the cinema […]


How I Came To Love Guardians Of The Galaxy

There are certain films that hook you from the very first time you see the poster, let alone the trailer, and there are those that you really struggle to see why they bothered. For me that spectrum ran from “Leon” (BIG fan of Luc Besson) down to “Dangerous Liaisons,” which I’ve sat in front of […]


Movie Review – Misbehaviour

Misbehaviour joins the growing list of films I remember actually happening in real life! This took me back to England in the 70s. The clothing fashions were spot-on and the interior decor was eye-achingly accurate! Back in 1970 I was a thirteen year old with a normal teenager’s interest in the opposite sex, but even […]

Truly, Madly, Deeply movie review (200x303)

Movie Review – Truly, Madly, Deeply

Valentine’s Day is over again and there were many cinemas offering nights for you and your significant other to share a bucket of popcorn, a gallon of pop, and watch a film together. That film is usually Ghost. My response to that is “O.K. Ghost is a decent film that pulls all the right strings […]

Movie Review – The Personal History of David Copperfield

To be honest, it is about fifty years since I read David Copperfield while at school (Yes, I know. I look so young!) and I do tend to mix up the details with all the other Dickens I had to read, so I wasn’t too sure what the story was —  other than a loose […]

Rob’s top 10 favorite movies from 2019

I thought I’d throw in my two penn’orth from across the Atlantic and chip in with a list of my favourite films of 2019. Now, I go to the cinema for one reason…entertainment. My education and work life has always tended to maths and science but film is for fun! As a result, some of […]
