Welcome To January…The Dump Month?

Ah January. The start of a new year. Fresh starts, new beginnings, and resolutions that can last as long as a week. Everything is all hunky dory and sparkly bright. That is, until you realise that one of the alternative names for January, in the film industry at least, is the Dump Month. The thinking […]

Christmas TV Movie Review – Christmas Carole

It seems a bit obvious but, just in case you didn’t get here via the Scrooge/Christmas Carol hub, this is a modern day reinterpretation of A Christmas Carol. Christmas Carole sets the story in the present day with Scrooge being replaced by the eponymous Christmas Carole MacKay (Suranne Jones).  The rest of the story is, […]

The Wonderful Story Of Henry Sugar – What You Need To Know

  Roald Dahl has proven to be a rich source of stories for film makers: The BFG, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda, and The Witches are all Dahl stories that have been filmed during this millennium. Indeed, four of those five titles have been filmed more than once. It can’t be […]

Rewatch Review – Calendar Girls

During this autumn I’ve had the pleasure of hosting RunPee Jilly. She had had enough of sunny San Diego and came to stay in wet and windy Wallasey for a bit. This time of year, we’re only allowed forty two minutes of sunshine a day so, as you might guess, we’ve spent a lot of […]

Captain America: New World Order – What You Need To Know

Ah, yes…Captain America. I don’t pretend to know all the mythology as laid down in the comic books due to never having read them! All I know is what I’ve seen on various screens large and small. Also, the plot is seriously under wraps; I’m guessing that means no part for Tom Holland then! So, […]

Reacher: Season 2 – What You Need To Know

I said elsewhere how much I enjoyed the Jack Reacher series whether it was on the page, the cinema screen, or on the TV. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that I am chuffed to bits that the second season has actually started filming.  Who is Reacher? Jack Reacher was a major […]

Deadpool 3 – What You Need To Know

Deadpool is one of those areas of the greater Marvel Universe which is a blank to me. I’ve said elsewhere that I preferred Marvel comics over the DC ones. However, I stopped reading comics of any flavour back in the early seventies. As a result, I’d never heard of Deadpool before the film came out. […]

Casino Royale – 1967 vs 2006

Two films forty years apart but based on the same source novel. It’s not Sherlock Holmes, A Christmas Carol, or even La Planète Des Singes but this story has a few twists in the story of getting it from paper to celluloid. It is Casino Royale: the first Bond novel written and, subject to debate, […]

Best Of British Biographies – Bill Nighy

Ah, Bill Nighy. I’ve used phrases like chameleonic before but Bill Nighy is not quite that sort of actor. That doesn’t mean he isn’t versatile though. He has played a wide range of characters: a formerly addicted pop star, the minister for magic, a Regency gent, the embodiment of the oceanic abyss, a Victorian detective, […]

Welcome to Middle Earth

The 22nd of September is known as Hobbit Day. Why? Because that is the shared birthday of the two best known hobbits…Bilbo and Frodo Baggins; lead characters in The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings respectively. If those names mean nothing to you then you may as well stop reading now!  Middle Earth is […]
