Christmas Classic Rewatch Review – Scrooge (1951)

Elsewhere I wrote about how and why A Christmas Carol was written and how it’s been adapted many times on screens both large and small. It’s the most often adapted of all of Dickens’ works, with over thirty film outings. Oliver Twist comes second with a mere eighteen.  It’s been faithfully followed from the original, […]

Christmas Documentary Review – ’Twas The Fight Before Christmas (2021)

’Twas The Fight Before Christmas (2021) from Apple TV+ is another of those films that emphasises the difference between the USA and the UK. Over here we’re only vaguely religious in the main. By that I mean that when you go into hospital they always ask your religion. The majority will say C of E […]

Non-Christmas Christmas Movies – Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

It seems odd, looking back on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang from this side of the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — that it was touch and go whether or not Robert Downey Jr would get the lead role of Harry Lockhart. At the time, RDJ was considered to be quite toxic Robert […]

Christmas Movie Rewatch – Nativity!

Ah, Nativity! My wife doesn’t watch a lot of films but she watched and enjoyed this one. She does work in a primary school so there may have been some resonance for her there. I thought I’d give it a look because of the fine array of talent connected to it and, I thought, it […]

Christmas Classic Rewatch Review – Die Hard 2

Time, it’s a bugger, isn’t it. Die Hard 2 came out about five years ago… in 1990! After a sit down with a nice hot cup of tea and a biscuit, nothing too exciting… a rich tea or a plain digestive, it does dawn on you that it’s now over thirty years old. When we […]

Indie Movie Review – Crappy Mother’s Day

You only need to see the title – Crappy Mother’s Day – and you know that this film is aiming at being a comedy. Now I’ve spent in excess of six decades on this planet and know that, just because a film or TV programme describes itself as a comedy, that is no guarantee of there being […]

GHD Indie Movie Review – The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things

The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things is the latest addition to the Groundhog Day time loop sub-genre so there’s a certain amount of stuff that is known from the start; the protagonist is experiencing one day over and over again. Having realised what is happening, they learn to live with the situation by learning what’s […]

New Years Movie Rewatch Review – Bridget Jones’s Diary

Back in the mid to late nineties there was a publishing phenomenon… Helen Fielding had written a faux diary about a thirty-something singleton called Bridget Jones. Bridget Jones’s Diary went on to become what The Guardian named as one of the ten novels that best defined the 20th century. Inevitably, it was snapped up to become the […]

New Year Rewatch Review – Entrapment

You’ve seen him as James Bond. You’ve seen him as a Russian submarine commander. You’ve seen him as an immortal Spaniard. You’ve seen him as kings Richard and Arthur. You’ve seen him as Indiana Jones’ dad. You’ve seen him as dozens of other characters, but he’s always Sean Connery. That sounds like it could be […]

New Year Rewatch Review – Sunset Boulevard

Sunset Boulevard, if you haven’t already seen it, is a scathing, withering attack on the morals and mores of mid-twentieth century Hollywood. And Hollywood wasn’t best pleased. Following an advance screening for the industry bigwigs, Louis B Meyer was apoplectic and tore into director Billy Wilder thusliwise… “You befouled your own nest. You should be […]
