Non-Christmas Christmas Movies – First View Review of First Blood

Whenever you hear of a film with Rambo in the title, you’ll no doubt think of wall to wall violence, tidal waves of blood, and a soundtrack consisting mainly of gunshots, screams, and explosions. You may also think of bulging biceps as Rambo hauls back on the string of a bow so he can pick […]

Non-Christmas Christmas Films: Home Alone 2 – Lost in New York (1992)

It’s another Christmas, a year later, and young Kevin is lost again. I’m not sure if there’s some intensely bad parenting involved, or if the kid just attracts trouble, but so it goes. It’s basically Die Hard 2, with a ten-year-old, and everyone in-universe pretty much knows it. “Not again” is the theme, which I […]

Classic Christmas Rewatch – Home Alone (1990)

Non-Christmas Christmas Movies – Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

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 as Mitch Hennessey, the […]

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 […]

Rewatch Movie Review – The Princess Bride (plus the top quotable quotes)

I know every quote in The Princess Bride. Many old geeks like me do. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen this classic spoof fantasy. I introduced it to my mother tonight.
