Classic Movie Rewatch Review – Die Hard

Die Hard is, without doubt, a cracking action film. A Christmas film though? Well, it has a weary traveller, a pregnant woman, gifts, and celebrates the value of family and the spirit of friendship. Add to those the soundtrack, the fact it takes place at an office party (a real one, mind, one with a jerk […]

Classic Movie Rewatch Review – Trading Places

I’ve lost count of the number of times that I’ve watched Trading Places over the years, and not always as a Christmas film. It’s a comedy first and foremost, then it’s a social satire, and only then is it a holiday film. For the sake of the half dozen or so people who haven’t seen it, […]

Rewatch Review – Love Actually (A Brit Perspective)

Back in October we were talking about articles for the run up to Christmas (yes, this stuff is all actually planned!) and the idea of a rewatch review of Love Actually was mentioned, especially a British take on the film. This took me a little by surprise, as I can’t help thinking that anything written by […]

Die Hard and Beyond: Are They Really Christmas Films?

There are films that are obviously Christmas films; they only make sense because they’re set at Christmas; it only feels right to watch them at Christmas; they belong to Christmas. And then there are films that are associated with Christmas and they are the ones there are arguments about. So… a Christmas film… or or […]

26 Classic Movies to Revisit at the Drive In (And 11 new films)

As we know, movie theaters are shuttered, due to mounting case totals of CoVid-19. Happily, drive-in theaters are relevant again and seeing a filmatic resurgence. While there are very few new movies (Palm Springs, Greyhound, and Trolls World Tour are among the six we’ve covered below), classic favorites — the oldies but goodies — are […]

Best of British Biographies – Timothy Spall

“There’s the funny-looking character actor who plays the same role every time. But I’m the funny-looking character actor who plays many different kinds.” – Timothy Spall Tim Spall is one of those brilliant, chameleonic actors who can turn his hand to any role but — probably because he isn’t classically handsome — isn’t a top […]

Classic Movie Review – Gremlins

Gremlins. One of the best non-Christmas Christmas movies ever made. It’s got a bizarre but cemented niche among the classics that somehow stands up after all this time, although Steven Spielberg seemed to be experimenting with genres in those days. Gremlins (1984) isn’t a great movie, but slips into the A range by nature of […]

Classic Movie Review – The Goonies

The Goonies ‘r’ good enough for me! Here’s another Amblin Entertainment kid-based movie by Steven Spielberg that still holds up over time. The Goonies (from 1985) is a charming, fun ride featuring pirates, monsters, secret passageways, treasure maps, cunning kids, and more bike chases than E.T. (What is it with Spielberg, kids, and bicycles?) Altogether, it’s […]

Director Paul Verhoeven & the Woeful Reboots of Robocop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers

What have the following all got in common: Robocop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers? All three are cracking — if a bit O.T.T. — films by Dutch director Paul Verhoeven. Usually a term like ‘maverick’ is thrown in at some point but, as the only other Dutch director I’m aware of is Jan de Bont, […]
