I walked into the sitting room after reading my daughter Oi! Frog, Oi! Cat, Oi! Dog and Oi! Duck Billed Playpus for bedtime and the missus was engrossed in Terminator 2, which I wasn’t expecting, beca

My poor missus had to put up with me kicking off over the whole debacle when I walked in the door last night after it. The poor woman. She was only about to get into bed and had to deal with a 39 year

Speaking of Jack Lemmon, my brother once worked at the Box Office in The Strand theatre.  Jack Lemmon was performing in a play there, he seemed down to earth but kept himself to himself.  Out of respe

I thought The Irishman was tremendous! It brilliantly wrote, the acting was great and some of the direction and cinematography was amazing. I've always been a huge fan of Scorses, but when I saw the running time I was worried it would be a slog. But no, I was hooked from the first minute to the last and I'm sure it will become a film I watch fairly regular.

Only thing I didn't like was the de-aging stuff. It looked great, but I'm convinced that as long as your brain knows that someone has been de-aged or recreated in CGI then it makes the effects stand out like a sore thumb. Well, it does to me anyway...

I quite enjoyed Knives Out despite it getting a bit boring in the middle and some awful voice over dubs. 
There was some very obvious foreshadowing early on and some ridiculously unbelievable plot devices but it looked brilliant with some lovely shots and a few great jokes thrown in too. 
 

Daniel Craig should bin off Bond and reboot Columbo.

Fuck that, Craig will want to include some emo backstory as to how he lost his eye in the accident that killed his dad, it's then revealed that his dad died wearing a certain raincoat.

There's a complete disconnect with the comic timing and sense of humour he shows in Knives Out and Logan Lucky against his almost total refusal to put the odd joke in his Bond films.

There's really nothing in Frozen 2 to have justified the number of grown adults unaccompanied by kids in the screening I was just in. Disney just never bothered to get better, did it.

I watched a film called Avengement recently, and it was way better than it had any right to be. Its essentially the same film you always see. Scott Adkins is the lead, and he's got a great screen presence. He starts off as a fairly clean martial artists and shit happens and he ends up in the most cockney of prisons on earth, leading him to turn mental and get revenge on everyone who wronged him. Some may even say this was ... avengement.

Craig Fairbrass is in it saying "fakin'" and "kant" a lot. But Adkins is the star of the show. A pleasent surprise.
