Jingle All The Way (1996)

Well well well….I thought I’d start off Throwback Thursday with a seasonal children’s classic, Jingle All The Way. Now this was a bog standard feature that appeared on TV without fail during the lead up to Christmas. To a child, what is there not to like: Comical mischief, Christmas, “Awesome” special affects *cough* (for 96′…

Dunkirk (2017)

Must be watched. Educational, emotional, beautiful portrayal of such a difficult and horrific situation.

Off Topic #9 : A Touchy Subject

This may seem like a sensitive area (no pun intended),  but its pretty difficult to hide away from this rather big scoop from the cinematic world.

The Babadook (2014)

Initially, the film seems to be a tired single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) and her hyperactive son (Noah Wiseman) and all the situations that follow with repeated actions cause problems at school and disrupt interactions with potential playmates.

Split (2017)

Viewers can say they are “truly moved” by emotive films with depth and meaning that not only entertain but educate. This would sound a bit like something you would attach to a Rom-com or a documentary style viewing, but I am going to apply it to Split. I didn’t do any research into DID  (Dissociative Identity Disorder)…

Moana (2016)

Disney’s Mythical new installment bringing out the real adventurer in us all.

Whiplash (2014)

  Films involving music have always excited me. Musicals, dramas, everything encapsulating the production of the sound and the skill of the player/performer never falls on deaf ears. This film Whiplash, in particular , made my heart pound, my ears ring, my eyes had stars in them…I couldn’t look away. I had put the film on in the…

Off Topic #8: Moving House

They say it’s meant to be one of the most stressful and traumatic situations you can go through. Moving house. Packing your life into boxes in some form of order with the intention to make it easier to unpack at the other end. Don’t be silly, where ever you put that specific item, you won’t…
