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 Brit Movie Bio – 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, […]

Classic Movie Review – Mean Girls

Such a cute classic teen comedy. Mean Girls isn’t striving to be a generational anthem like The Breakfast Club (an A+ movie), or even attempting to do so for young adults  — like St. Elmo’s Fire (rolling through with a B+). Still, within the limitations of being: a small story that’s simply fun, charm you […]

There’s an E.T. sequel and it’s awesome

I just finished watching E.T. for basically the first time. I only saw it one time in 1982, and 38 years later didn’t remember anything beyond the “Phone Home” shtick. I wrote this grand review about the symbolism in E.T. with a lot of thoughts tending towards the introspective. I had to rewatch E.T. to […]
