The Force Awakens

Episode 7 of the Star Wars Saga. There are many references to Episodes 4, 5 and 6 and you will enjoy this movie much, much more if you have watched these older movies. But, it works very well even if this is your first foray into the Star Wars Universe. We went with a mixed […]

Interstellar

I don’t like Chris Nolan’s movies. There, I have said that out, however blasphemous it may sound to many, many people reading this. I didn’t like the Batman series – too dark and dismal for me and I felt that Superman was made into an unnecessarily psychotic, depressed and slightly confused person – Hardly the […]

The Hundred Foot Journey

Absolutely fantastic movie. Useless book. Do yourself a favour, Watch the movie, don’t read the book. It’s magic in the kitchen when the spices of India flirt with haute french cuisine. Sparks fly and the heat is on. A muslim family who passionately run a restaurant in Mumbai are victims of a riot. They loose everything […]

The Desolation of Smaug

Man of Steel

A new Superman movie!! Wow!!! I grew up with the Christopher Reeve Superman movies (and comics) and had throughly enjoyed them, and was quite looking forward to seeing this movie… and unfortunately it didn’t live up to what it could have been. Superman is a fairly happy, funny, upbeat super hero. Not like batman who […]

How to Train Your Dragon

is a superb movie Please watch it… and if possible watch it in 3D… unlike most of the other movies out there in 3D, this one actually uses the 3D effects many, many times. If you are a viking, then dragons are bad news … they carry off your food and clothes (sheep) and torch […]

Movie Time

After Avatar and Three Idiots, the other movies we saw were quite flat… Clash of the Titans is the story of the demi God Perseus who yearns to be only a man, and who has one burning desire to kill off Hades the God of Death, but as a man. Meanwhile the city of Argos […]
