terminator genisys | my movie review

Yes, yes I know. It’s been a while… a long while… but I’ve recently seen a slew of interesting movies and felt drawn to rekindle my enjoyment of tapping away on a keyboard to ponder why/what/how and… why I loved or didn’t loved (sic) a movie.  So for date night this week my lovely wife and I […]

I have to admit that I love the 1939 version of The Wizard of Oz. It’s totally foot-tappingly, thoroughly heart-warmingly enjoyable. But did you know that that wasn’t the first film version of the L Frank Baum story of The Wizard of Oz [he wrote 17 books based in Oz!]. ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ […]

Following on from watching Silver Linings Playbook, which is about two people realising they are right for one another, I watched Blue Valentine.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.

Whether it’s Bruno Ganz’s Hitler, Frank Langella’s Nixon, or Reese Witherspoon’s Tracy Flick – I love a good political movie! I’ll be the first to admit that I was never going to read a weighty book about America’s 16th president, so I thank you, Mr Spielberg, for making such a genuine, powerful, and I might […]
