I’ve been lucky enough to be given the 7×7 award by Max from Impassioned Cinema and Andina from Inspired Ground!
I saw the highly anticipated Coriolanus at the wonderful Old Market Hall in Shrewsbury. Does this Shakespearian tragedy prove that Ralph Fiennes can shake his iconic association with The Dark Lord?
The Hunger Games is finally here. After announcing it as one of my most anticipated films of 2012, I’ve been really looking forward to its release. Is it as good as I hoped it would be?

As I’m slowly working my way through the 1001 Movies To See Before You Die I’ve been discovering not only classic films, but some of the most renowned actors and actresses of all time. Despite this, I still hadn’t seen a Brigette Bardot film. Le Repos du Guerrier (Love on A Pillow) is my first Bardot; she was every bit as lovely as I had expected.
Like most family films at the moment, John Carter has been released in 3D and 2D. Unfortunately the new Disney release gains nothing from the extra dimension, proving it’s been a gimmick all along
The Kids Are All Right walked away with numerous accolades when it came out in 2010 and won a soft spot in the hearts of many. Is it really that special? It’s actually really rather remarkable
Move over Jack and Jill; we have a new contender for worst film of 2012 in Project X. It may even deserve the title of worst film ever
