WELCOME BACK MARY POPPINS!

Wow, what a wonderful sequel! You'll know already that we here at The Journalix love Disney. I've been fully immersed in Cherry Tree Lane since seeing Julie Andrews become Mary Poppins as a child, but Mary Poppins Returns is a fabulous film and ev

READY PLAYER ONE

Have you seen it yet? I wasn't in a rush to but events transpired that I ended up seeing it twice within a week. A rare thing these days, but no regrets because it's a romp! Definitely one for a younger audience, albeit not too young - The Shining cr...

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...
