Musings on… Movies & TV

Happy Birthday Harry Potter

Twenty years is a long time. It's like, pretty much, two whole decades, isn't it? Yes, twenty years. So much can happen in that time. Here's just a handful of the advances we've seen - some epic, some useful and others just cool: Stem cell research Tivo...

Sherlock – Abominably Wonderful

*SPOILER ALERT - I'll try to keep them to a minimum though!*   I've always liked Sherlock Holmes.  Though I admit to not having read much of the printed material (which surprises me), I've been a fan of the television series (what's the plural of series - serieses?)...

Ash vs Evil Dead – Mental, Cliched and Wonderful…

30 years ago, a group of teenagers opened a book, read a few words, as you do, and unleashed lots of really not very nice evil thingies onto the unsuspecting cinema going public.  Filled with glorious tongue in cheek humour, buckets of spurting blood and a handy...

I Used to be a Wolf…

...But I'm alright now-ooooo! Following on from my previous review of a film which promised much but failed to deliver, here's a film which is the complete opposite. That's not to say The Wolf of Wall Street didn't receive lots of critical acclaim and , more...

Starred Down!

This blog post was originally going to be a rant, but I’ve changed my mind today.  The rant is now hanging in the air, like the blue smoke of a cigarette, waiting to descend and choke someone. It can linger a little longer. Instead, we can go for something a touch...

I stayed till the Ender, but only just…

A short while ago, I had a stay in hospital due to a sinus operation I was having. I had the opportunity, whilst there, to watch a couple of films.  There was no way I was going to sleep for my two night stint, so having the chance to catch up on some movies I'd been...

Spoiling by the BBC

The BBC are spoiling me.  Really they are. I had awaited, with breath bated, Christmas Day when I knew Matt Smith would regenerate into Peter Capaldi and we'd had a new era of Doctor Who.  The day was upon us and, due to it being Christmas Day and me having various...

The Wrong Mans – A Slap in the Face

Sometimes a slap can be good if correctly administered, so sayeth Jim Field Smith, director and producer of new comedy series The Wrong Mans.   This was in response to a tweet from me telling him that the first episode, which I saw last night, was like a 'slap in the...

The Lone Ranger – Has Silver Tarnished?

I don't care, usually, if a film has been slated by critics.  In some cases - too many sometimes -  the slating is deserved, but there are plenty of times I really enjoy a film that has been pretty much derided.   The Lone Ranger is one of these.   I like to turn my...

R.I.P.D. – Dead or Alive?

R.I.P.D. is a film where it's not so much 'drunk and disorderly' as 'dead and disorderly'!   I saw the first 30 seconds or so of this movie, and I was hooked.  A massively obese creature comes smashing through a door accompanied by a voiceover by Ryan Reynolds, the...
