  • Jingle All the Way

    Jingle All the Way

    ★★★★

    Hilarious. Great soundtrack. Really captures the Christmas season well. Absolute classic.

  • The Expendables 2

    The Expendables 2

    ★★★★

    That airport scene >>>>>

  • The Expendables 3

    The Expendables 3

    ★★★½

    Not as action packed or violent as the previous two films but as a trilogy it’s consistently entertaining. 
    This film had a great opening and closing 30 minutes but the middle hour bogged it down as we are randomly introduced to a new set of characters who didn’t add much at all. 
    Gibson was a great addition but Ford looked a bit bored, Banderas was good but did become annoying. 
    If we get an Expendables 4 let’s hope we go back to 80s action and cheesy jokes from first to last minute.

  • Species

    Species

    ★★★★

    “I enjoyed that immensely” 😂

  • Holidate

    Holidate

    ★★★½

    Holidate joins Hubie Halloween & The Babysitter: Killer Queen in getting a 3.5 rating from me. If I had any credibility on here it’s probably gone now.

  • Bill & Ted Face the Music

    Bill & Ted Face the Music

    ★★★

    Give us a Billie & Thea movie ASAP

  • The Terminator

    The Terminator

    ★★★★★

    You’re terminated, fucker!

  • Tales of Halloween

    Tales of Halloween

    ★★½

    Sweet Tooth, The Night Billy Raised Hell, Trick. The opening 3 segments and the only ones I really liked. The Pumpkin in the final segment (Bad Seed) was fun but by this point I’d already endured all the stuff in the middle and just wanted it to end. Each segment did capture the Halloween setting very well though.

  • Stitches

    Stitches

    ★★★½

    Good humour. Over the top kills. Simple but effective comedy horror.


    A clown pumps a guys head like a balloon and it explodes. You know you want to watch this film now.

  • My Spy

    My Spy

    ★★★½

    Enjoyed this one, yes it’s a bit silly but the characters work well together and the jokes are pretty good too.

  • Corpse Bride

    Corpse Bride

    ★★★

    So begins another October 31 horror/spooky films in 31 days attempt that will probably fail by day 4...

  • The Karate Kid

    The Karate Kid

    ★★★★½

    Story, setting, characters, soundtrack. It’s classic 80s all over. 

    I watched this as a kid but my memory of it when watching now was so blank I’m going to count it as a first time watch. 

    YOU’RE THE BEST
