  • Classic Movie Rewatch – Raiders Of The Lost Ark after 40 years
    What links a toilet cistern, fingering a cheese casserole, a Honda Civic rolling down a gravel path, whacking a pile of leather jackets with a baseball bat, and R2-D2? They’re all sound effects used during the production of Raiders Of The Lost Ark. The toilet cistern is the sound of the lid ...
  • Celebrate Captain Picard Day with Jean-Luc’s top Next Generation episodes (and one movie)
    If you’re looking forward to a glass of Chateau Picard — red — or a cup of Earl Grey — hot — then you’re off to a great start, celebrating like they do on the Enterprise NCC1701-D. Captain Picard Day (June 16th by our calendar) was introduced to the viewers ...
  • The Big James Bond Rewatch – Thunderball (1965)
    I tried watching the Bond films in order with my father years ago.  He even bought me the whole series on DVD.  We only made it halfway through Goldfinger before getting interrupted.  I didn’t see all of Goldfinger until it played in cinemas again a few years ago.  So I’ve ...
  • James Bond Rewatch – Goldfinger (1965)
    Jill, Rob, and I are reviewing the entire James Bond series in celebration and anticipation of Daniel Craig’s final Bond outing No Time to Die.  When Jill, Rob, and I did a draft to divide up the Bond reviews, this movie was my first choice.  I picked last and was ...
  • The Big James Bond Rewatch – Dr. No (1962)
    Looking back, it’s almost impossible to imagine that Albert R Broccoli and Harry Saltzman didn’t know that, with Dr. No, they were establishing a film franchise to become the second longest-running in the world. At fifty-nine years the only thing that’s outlasted it is Godzilla, which began in 1954 and ...
  • James Bond Rewatch – Live and Let Die (1973)
    Roger Moore is my favorite James Bond, and Live & Let Die is my favorite Bond film. Do you remember your 1st Bond film in the theater? (Mine was 1979’s Moonraker, which has SPACE in it, and thus I loved it.) So it’s natural that Moore was ‘my’ Bond. Moore also did ...
  • Classic Movie Review – The Milagro Beanfield War
    The Milagro Beanfield War is a movie everyone should see to be delighted, laugh a lot, cry a little, and have a two hour cinematic fiesta. It’s chock full of chemistry between almost everyone, in a cast that encompasses an entire town, from children to the elderly. In fact, it’s ...
  • Movie Franchise Rewatch – Star Trek IX: Insurrection
    Insurrection is one of those movies that you kind of forget about after seeing, which explains my inability to get this review out on time. It’s very…lightweight. To its credit, it feels like a middle of the road Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. I say credit, because a middle ...
  • Star Trek Movies and the Bechdel Test — How do they stand up after all this time?
    I wrote an article on how the Star Wars films stood up to the Bechdel Test, which is a simple measurement to determine whether any named female characters have a conversation about something other than men. This is not a stance for feminist debate so much as an observation. For ...
  • Thoughts on Monster Universe Rewatch before Godzilla vs Kong
    I did a rewatch of Godzilla 2014, Kong: Skull Island, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters in preparation for the release of Godzilla vs King Kong this week (March 31st) in theaters and on HBO Max. Godzilla 2014 When Godzilla came out in 2014 I gave it a C. It was enjoyable, ...
  • James Bond Movie Review – Casino Royale (1967)
    Hopelessly outdated, arguably non-canon, wildly over budget, classic song, clashing egos… what stops 1967’s Casino Royale from being a full blown 007 film? Probably the grown ups arguing over adult things like distribution rights. Anyway… it’s over fifty years old so there may be spoilers here… I’ll be honest –when the ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    My favorite of all the Harry Potter films — and books for that matter — this is just an A+ good time. If you like a quest-type adventure story, Goblet of Fire is a fine addition to the ranks of high fantasy. Unfortunately, I can’t speak for how well this tale ...
  • Rewatch Movie Review – Twelve Monkeys
    For the record, Twelve Monkeys was suggested to me as a rewatch to tie in with the Groundhog Day theme, however, there is no way that Twelve Monkeys is a Groundhog Day film. No ifs, buts, or maybes… it’s a time travel film rather than a time loop film. But, having got it cued up and ready to ...
  • First View Movie Review – The Endless
    So where do I begin with The Endless? It only just squeaks in as a Groundhog Day type film. Not because there isn’t a time loop, more likely because there isn’t just the one. There seem to be dozens of them. Some only seem to last seconds, whereas others last longer. ...
  • First View Movie Review – Blood Punch
    Blood Punch is an unusual little film. It starts off with our hero, Milton (Milo Cawthorne) waking up in a wilderness lodge on Tuesday. His first action is to run and throw up in a toilet. While he’s there he finds a screen, a load of wires, and a few ...
  • First View Movie Review – Triangle (Groundhogs Day… at sea)
    It’s funny how some films never get a chance because of a bit of marketing that doesn’t quite hit the spot, and so you just don’t bother looking past the poster. That’s what happened with me and 2009’s Triangle. The poster in question shows a blonde woman wearing a blood ...
  • First Watch Film Review – Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
      Is Eternal Sunshine a Groundhog Day Loop film? Let’s explore! Here we go with another film that, for some unknown reason, I’ve never seen and am not sure why. At least this one’s relatively recent; I still haven’t seen Citizen Kane or The Sound Of Music! Could it have been the sub-par cast? Nope! Any ...
  • New Years Eve First View Movie Review: Four Rooms
    There’s no mistaking Four Rooms for anything other than a New Year film… it actually starts to the strains of Auld Lang Syne! Basically, Four Rooms is a quartet of stories set in the Hotel Mon Signor on New Years Eve. Each segment is directed by a different director with a, ...
  • Christmas Rewatch Review – Scrooged
    Scrooged is A Christmas Carol dragged kicking and screaming into the modern world… well, the late eighties anyway. Bill Murray is Frank Cross, the Scrooge character, but in this world he’s a cynical TV executive. He’s tasked with making sure his Christmas spectacular grabs the biggest share of the audience, and he wants to ...
  • Christmas Rewatch Review – Lethal Weapon
    What better way to start a Christmas film than with a half naked, drugged up prostitute pitching headfirst off the balcony of a tower block? If that doesn’t say festive fun and frolics, well, I don’t know what does! After all… Jingle Bell Rock is playing on the sound track. ...
  • First View Movie Review – The Muppet Christmas Carol
    Maybe it’s a generational thing. I was starting college for the first time when The Muppet Show was first aired. I’ve never seen Sesame Street. Well, not more than the odd clip on TV; enough to be aware of some of the history of the beasts. Throw into the mix the absence ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • A US Classic From A UK Perspective – A Christmas Story
    A little background… At the start of the decade a change in circumstances meant I had a lot of spare time during the run up to Christmas. So what was I going to do? What I did was got hold of a load of Christmas films and thoroughly got into the ...
  • Rewatch Review – The Long Kiss Goodnight
    The Long Kiss Goodnight is a great film. It has action, thrills, humour, intrigue, suspense… everything! Geena Davis is gorgeous and believable as both the mumsy Samantha Caine and the deadly Charlie Baltimore. Confused? How about if I say that Sam Caine is an anagram of ‘amnesiac? Samuel L Jackson is brilliant ...
