Movie Review – Still: A Michael J Fox Movie

I’ll be honest, prior to Back To The Future, I hadn’t heard of him. I guess that I was on the wrong side of the Atlantic to catch any of the numerous TV appearances that he had made from 1978 onwards. Furthermore, I’ll be even more brutally honest and say that, apart from the other […]

Movie Review – Ghosted

Apple TV+’s latest offering is, apparently, something of a record breaker.  The first two days saw 328,500 people watching Ghosted. Obviously that’s chicken feed compared to something like Avengers: Endgame but in the world of non-theatrical releases it is, apparently, quite a big deal. That’s way more than the first two days of other highly […]

Movie Review – Tetris

I have to admit that when I heard that there was a film based on the Tetris game in the pipeline my heart sank just a little.  After all, I remember the farce that was Super Mario Bros and Street Fighter. I couldn’t begin to imagine what the narrative would be but I did have […]

Christmas Movie Review – Spirited

Same as buses! Wait ages for one and then they all start to arrive at once. So it is with Christmas films. Last week I had a look at Christmas In The Caribbean and now I have to add another to our Christmas film hub…Spirited. Apple Studios have produced a new adaptation of A Christmas […]

Movie Review – The Tragedy Of Macbeth (2021)

I don’t think there is anyone out there who is unaware of William Shakespeare. You might not have actually been to a theatre to see a production but, paradoxically, that isn’t the only place to see Shakespeare’s words being performed. I don’t think it’s over pushing the point to say that most people haven’t necessarily […]

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 […]


Documentary Review – The Year Earth Changed

“March 2020. Overnight, our lives are put on pause. But, as we stop, remarkable things start to change in the natural world.” The Year Earth Changed opens with the venerable tones of David Attenborough, which reassure you this is going to be fascinating, entertaining, and educational three-quarters of an hour. Apple got together with the […]


Movie Review – Bruce Springsteen’s Letter To You

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band have been together since October 1972; pretty much continuously and pretty much unchanged. While the Bruce and the band are thought to be synonymous and a performing unit they have played with a wide range of other acts including, but not confined to: Air Supply, Gary U.S. Bonds, […]


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 […]
