Stung (Film) Review

I had a harder time than necessary choosing a film this week and only because I placed so much pressure on myself. We were going to do High School Movies Month but that didn’t work out (long boring story), so we’ve gone instead with Plan B, which actually fits our new theme rather well: B Movies. Remember both Jill and I complaining that our choices … Read More Stung (Film) Review

Great Blog Collab

A Year in Film with The Pink Panther Snipes Again. Source: Great Blog Collab I’ve also compiled a list of movies to tackle in the forthcoming year, here. Excited for a brand new year of untapped films.

The Mistle-Tones (TV Movie) Review

It’ll be Christmas in less than two weeks, man. How did that happen? I guess I’d better buy a turkey soon… But instead of doing the chores that matter, I’m fighting off a hangover from Friday night (still) and enjoying the lead up to the big day in my pants. Which means mince pies and this Made for TV Christmas gem. My choice this week … Read More The Mistle-Tones (TV Movie) Review

The Wolfpack (Film) Review

This film, man. It’s different to anything we’ve reviewed before as part of our collaboration and that’s a good thing I think. I have no idea where to start on this documentary but I’ll give it a damn good go anyway, because that’s just the kind of girl I am. I think that this will be the last in our Blog Free or Die Hard … Read More The Wolfpack (Film) Review

The House on Telegraph Hill (Film) Review

Jillian’s pick this week and it’s Film Noir, one I hadn’t seen before nor, if I’m honest, even heard of. But I love love love this genre and studied it closely during my Film A-Level (100 years ago), so it’s close to my heart. We’re still on Blog Free & Die Hard time, and I like it. So here’s to a couple more random … Read More The House on Telegraph Hill (Film) Review

Rosemary’s Baby (Film) Review

See Halloween Month off with a bang, I thought. Let’s watch a classic and see how it stands up in today’s modern landscape, I thought. Well, that was about all the thought I put into this week’s choice. I mean, it was this or Halloween (1978) and the latter seemed too obvious. Plus, I wouldn’t want to slag off that masterpiece, I’m sure on … Read More Rosemary’s Baby (Film) Review

Cockneys Vs. Zombies (Film) Review

Another week, another great horror. Or, if not great, then at least great fun. Which, both Jillian and I have agreed is exactly what we needed after a few weeks of pure, unadulterated stress at both our works. Anyone else having the shittest few weeks of their (working) lives? Let’s see if our pick this week offers anything more than exactly what it says … Read More Cockneys Vs. Zombies (Film) Review

Filth (Film) Review

Jillian’s choice for our Free For All Fortnight and cor blimey it’s a good ‘un. If you like cocks, swearing, vomit, spit, shagging, cross dressing, cocaine and violence that is. Luckily, I live for that shit! All that really matters here is that I’m not watching If I Stay and being bored to tears so right away Filth has the upper hand. I’ve actually seen … Read More Filth (Film) Review

If I Stay (Film) Review

This wasn’t my original choice for our Free For All Fortnight, which is what I’ve just now dubbed the next two weeks of reviews. I wanted Whiplash (2014) but Netflix lied to me and it wasn’t really there. Jill and I will be retreating into the comforting bosom of the Horror genre for the month of October so we’ll each be taking the opportunity to pick absolutely … Read More If I Stay (Film) Review

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (Film) Review

World cinema is fun! And this week is definitely no exception, although sometimes the fun gets a little bogged down in different emotions, such as pity, rage, despair, hope and triumph. My choice this week and I’m feeling pretty good about it. Incidentally, this film has been on my list for a while but became more pressing when I read this review. I mean, … Read More A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (Film) Review

Kolya (Film) Review

Jill’s pick this week and it looks like we’re in foreign cinema territory now. And what a film to start off with! I’m going to launch straight into my review before I show my hand too soon but let’s just say, I think we’re having a successful streak. As always: *Spoilers*! Kolya (1996) Director: Jan Sverák Stars: Zdenek Sverák, Andrey Khalimon, Libuse Safránková IMDB Synopsis: There isn’t … Read More Kolya (Film) Review

Down to You (Film) Review

Jillian and I have sort of lost track of what theme we’re on, though we both think it’s still Romance. So this week’s pick is all about first love and stars a bevy of late 90’s/early noughties rom-com alumni. What’s not to like about that, right? We’ll see. As always *spoilers*! Down to You (2000) Director: Kris Isacsson Stars: Freddie Prinze. Jr, Julia Stiles, … Read More Down to You (Film) Review
