Throwback Thirty – Bull Durham (1988)

 Another week down and another 30 year-old film to discuss. I'd not seen Bull Durham before because, quite frankly, when something is described as a mixture of romantic-comedy and sports film then I'll just assume it's not for me. I don't have the best history with sports film because I really can't give a shit about sports.... Continue Reading →

TBT – Notting Hill (1999)

I'm not going to lie to you guys, my schedule has gone a little awry this week. I didn't watch anything for today's post yesterday as I intended so had to quickly find something appropriate whilst browsing Netflix as soon as I got home from work. It's the end of my working week so I'm... Continue Reading →

TBT – Sliding Doors (1998)

I was sorely tempted to put off this TBT post and do it tomorrow. Today was the General Election and, as I was working from 9 until 630, I decided to go before I set off this morning. That's fine in principal but, as always happens on such occasions, I got caught in a YouTube... Continue Reading →

Boy tries to make girl fall in love with him. Stuff happens. Happily ever after. I just never find it an... Continue Reading →

TBT – Beauty and the Beast (1991)

I went to the cinema with a friend today and she happened to mention that she'd just seen the remake of Beauty and the Beast. When I asked her what she thought about it her answer was "I really liked it because it's exactly the same." Anyone who has read my review from Tuesday will know... Continue Reading →

TBT – Chasing Amy (1997)

I've never really been a massive fan of Kevin Smith films. When I was at university I lived with a guy who loved him and wouldn't hear a bad word said about the director. I mean Clerks is a silly but enjoyable enough watch and I did enjoy Dogma. However, I think Smith was severely overrated.... Continue Reading →
