If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Today I suspected that I would finally be hitting the bottom of the barrel in terms of movie releases I still need to see from this year. But apparently not thank goodness, because one of the films here turned out to be better than I expected - quite a lot better actually. While the other, well.... let's start with it, shall we?
Stephenie Meyer is back to invade your television screen once…Continue

It's the weekend, which not only means deciding what to do with your free time (which usually sums up to not doing much), but it also means new home releases! The two here are certainly what you would call interesting at the very least, but with my reactions to each them being very different. Still, they should make for some good reviews to write, so I'll start my…Continue

It's an action-packed double feature for this week, bringing two of the genre's most famous stars back to the screen once again. Usually this would be a warning sign for a film desperately trying to capture some of the magic of the 80's, but I was ready to give both these movies a chance at least. After all, they…

Once again, my blog post has a bit of an unintentional theme to it. Last time it was films involving 80's action heroes, and now it is two movies that drag the classic fairytales yelling and screaming into the bright lights of the 21st Century. And this happens to differing results, but which movie is the one you might think about renting? Well, I'll try to simplify that decision for you…Continue

Carrying on with the start of my mega home release reviewing for the next month, here are two more films from 2013 I only got a chance to see today. And yes, "Lincoln" released here in January 2013, so it counts for consideration this year. I'll keep these reviews relatively short today since there's not a huge amount of time tonight to allocate to writing, so let's get started…Continue

This weekend was going to be devoted to seeing one or two movies in the cinema, but with the home release of one particular film, I simple had to get it and review it. (Which I will be reviewing first here) This means I fall yet further behind on seeing the theatrical releases of movies, but oh well, things just fall that way sometimes. There are three films here to…Continue

As the first few 2013 movies get released onto Blu Ray, this week I was provided with a feast of quality entertainment to sink my teeth into. No January dung-pile titles to be found here at all, and one that even completely turned out to be the opposite of what I was expecting from it. More from that later, and since my…Continue

This set of home release reviews comes a little later than expected, since I had originally planned to have this up over the Bank Holiday Weekend. But no matter, here they are! Coming towards the end of the cinematic releases from 2012 that recently released on Blu Ray, there is nonetheless some quality to be found in them. And indeed one of which, just might sneak…Continue

I'm back with some more new(ish) home releases to cast my judgement upon, and a very odd choice of films too. It's funny what browsing through the bottom shelf of the video store can bring up, and in this case it led to me finding two films I had been keeping an eye out for over the past few weeks now. And yes, video stores…Continue

It feels so odd that despite me seeing many films last year, that there's still a huge batch of great titles from 2012 I have yet to check out. Some consisting of movies I missed out on seeing, others that just never got screened…Continue

We're coming towards the end of 2012 (in whatever shape or form that may manifest itself to be) and these could well be the last home release Blu Rays I check out before 2013. It rounds up to a total of around 50 films I have seen this year, so can these make a significant impact on the list? Well the answer to that is both yes and no, and not out of…Continue

It is time once again for me to cast an eye at some of the recent home releases, or to put it more simply, those films that I missed out in the cinema. And once again, I have taken two titles from completely different ends of the spectrum, so you at least can't blame me for not having variety. With that, let's have a look first at Aardman Studio's festive…Continue

Well, my trips to the cinema remain very sparse lately, (blame the lack of funds and all that) but I did get the chance to check out some more recent home releases this weekend. But will either of these films get the thumbs up? (You can probably guess the answer to that already, but let's check them out anyway, shall we?
First up is the second…Continue

Once again, it's time for me to delve into the week's newest home releases, all three of which I missed out on seeing in the cinema. And wow... this blog post's films are pretty special. You probably heard them discussed very well on this week's "Remote Viewing", so you will know already what I have to say. But nonetheless, I'll give my viewpoints on the matter, despite them most likely being a bit more... "simplified".…Continue
Four movies reviewed!
Last weekend saw a lot of new releases finally hit the shelves here in Ireland, and so it was the perfect conditions for three days of movies, along with my trip to see Prometheus. (you can find my full review for it…Continue

2011 was a rather temperamental year, both on the world stage and on the Internet. Lots of forlorn and depression, but for movie fans, I think it will go down as being quite a good one, I'm sure you’d agree. With that, it's time for me to take a look back at the movies of last year, and choose the winners, and losers.
Before I go on however, I'll say this, I haven't seen all…Continue

Continuing with my recent movie rentals of late (and one more that may be reviewed tomorrow) we have two very dofferent films here. It seems I've had a habit of getting contrasting titles lately, mostly because I need to take the good with the "meh". Let's crack on then.
And so, I continue with my movie-catchup, with…Continue

*laughs* Yeah, this will probably be the only time ever, that these two films will be uttered in the same line. I was feeling rather random at the video store today, and went for something I remembered from a previous review by Cyrus , and a film that I felt it my duty to get covered. No major surprises to be found here, but let's dive in and see what's what.

A fond greeting to you all once again. :) Today, I am begining a new titled blog entry, and this will from now on, accommodate reviews for films that I rent or see on tv that are best summarised. So even though the reviews will be short, there will be more films to talk about. Thos first entry is a poor one at first sight, but hang on... the third film is well worth hearing about. ;) So, ket us begin:
