I don't need an excuse to go and see Idris, but I was a little tentative after  The Snowman and hearing that this too had received poor reviews. I have to say, thought, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, it was a little sugar coated, BUT the premise of the story was sound. Two strangers thrown … Continue reading Film (Re)View – The Mountain Between Us

Film (Re)View) – The Snowman

Oh dear, what a terrible film. I have to wonder whether Jo Nesbo had any input into the making of this film, as I sure as hell would never let such a terrible adaptation of my book be released! It just goes to show that a high profile actor - Fassbender - and a high … Continue reading Film (Re)View) – The Snowman

Believe it or not, I am a lifetime fan of Winnie the Pooh, or I was, until I saw this … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Goodbye Christopher Robin

Why do filmmakers constantly have to remake iconic films? It is not necessary and, … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Flatliners
