Toy Story 1 & 2 in 3D!

Got some freebies from work to see previews of the re-released Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in 3D, so naturally I had to take Will 🙂 We both know the two movies inside out, but he’s never seen either on the big screen, and I last saw Toy Story at the movies nearly 15 ...

Movie review: Couples Retreat

Movie review: Couples Retreat
A special night tonight… it’s Sallie’s birthday and we arranged things so the kids could be looked after for a few hours. For the first time in months we have an evening to ourselves. Couldn’t exactly be too extravagent, so we went up to the Westpoint entertainment level for dinner and a movie. We had ...

When geeks go wild

When geeks go wild
Found online by various people: That would be Carrie Fisher and her stunt double, both in the “’80s male fantasy” steel bikinis, on the set of Return of the Jedi, sunning themselves on Jabba’s barge. Take that, geek fantasyland! Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Movie Review: Public Enemies

Took in Michael Mann’s latest movie tonight… Public Enemies, or as I’ve thought of it for ages, “Heat in the 1930s”. And while I can’t really say it’s as good as Mann’s 1995 epic, Public Enemies is still pretty decent in its own right, with some excellent performances, some great production design, and some Heat-worthy ...

Review: “Up” and away with more Pixar magic

Review:
Pixar are magicians. That’s all I can say. Their latest effort, Up, is a wonderfully made, simple but deep fantasy adventure, that gives adults and kids equal amounts of enjoyment. It’s not a matter of it being a movie of “general” appeal, Up is truly for all ages, with multiple levels of enjoyment to be ...

RIP John Hughes… “Don’t You Forget About Me”

Sad news today with reports that John Hughes, legendary 1980s writer/director of such movies as Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (among others), has died age 59 of a heart attack. ABC Online While I was almost too young to get most of those movies in their original release, ...

Toy Story 3 first preview

Because Will would insist I posted it here… The first preview online for Toy Story 3, due June next year. Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Star Trek!

I wouldn’t call myself a Trekkie exactly, but at one stage I was quite a fan of all things Star Trek. Not constume wearing obsessive, but quite a fan. Read a lot of the books, watched most of the series, all the movies. So I’d been quite keen to see the new Star Trek movie, ...

A suggestion for movie studios

If the movie studios of this world made DVDs of movies available to buy at the same time as the movie is released, I’d buy every single thing I take Will to see immediately, as I’m sure millions of parents would. We’d already own Bolt and Monsters vs Aliens, instead of having to wait however ...

Monsters vs Aliens and small boys!

Will and I went to the movies today, on my Easter Monday day off. I won’t deny it, I’m loving it… being able to take my son to the movies and finding our tastes already agreeing 🙂 Obviously I won’t take him to anything too grown up yet, but today we saw Monsters vs Aliens, ...
