FUCK ME IN THE BEARD

One of my favourite comedies of all-time is Knocked Up (2007) directed by Judd Apatow, the story of a typical bum of a bachelor Ben Stone whose unlikely 'romantic' encounter with beautiful up-and-coming entertainment news host Alison Scott results in

A TARANTINO PLAYLIST (SORT OF)

Quentin Tarantino (cool name don't you think?) dominated cinema in the 1990's and continues to delight with his ground-breaking work and cool-as-fuck films. By now he has a solid boxset of bold and brash movies which are guaranteed to make you sit up...

THE MATRIX: WHAT WENT WRONG?

What went wrong with The Matrix sequels? First of all, what went right? Well the freeway chase, as long as it is, is fantastic. Very cool idea with the apparating twins too which played out some awesome scenes. As unreal as it felt that you...

STOP ME IF YOU THINK YOU’VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE

It's the summer of 1998 in L.A. and some sweaty little man with bad coffee breath is pitching an idea to two Dreamworks executives, each with a cigar between their fat stubby little fingers. Sweaty man: "OK guys, I have a great idea, listen to th...

THE EIGHTH STORY. NINETEEN YEARS LATER…

I was a very good boy last year. I was duly rewarded for my good behaviour at Christmas time when I found, at the very bottom of my stocking, Santa Claus had left me a copy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Part One and Two (released in 2015). Unl

IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR

There are many rules and regulations in place to prevent movie studios from filling their films with advertisements. Nothing actually prevents you from doing it during the production stage, it is when you come to distribute the thing that you will r...

DELAYED REVIEW: ERIN BROCKOVICH

Before sitting down to watch Erin Brockovich for the first time (18 years after it's release) I asked my wife if it was going to be a "difficult watch". She knows exactly what I meant by this and most of the time it's simply "will it make me cry?". I...

BRAD PITT EATS

Brad Pitt (born 18 Dec 1963) is a fine actor, with particularly good taste when it comes to movie projects; 12 Monkeys, Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Inglorious Basterds, The Departed, 12 Years a Slave, we could go on. But what of ...

POP ICON: MUHAMMAD ALI

Well the world says goodbye to yet another icon, Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) - not only a great sporting icon but one of the greatest men that ever lived. In his own words to a press-packed boxing gym: "I'm young, I'm handsome, I'm fast, I'm pret...
