The ones bolded are my favourites.
YellowBrickRoad , I really enjoyed the first 20 minutes but then the rest of the movie let it down.
I highly recommend The Perfect Host.
Re-watched Smokey & the Bandit movies after Burt Reynolds passed away, R.I.P. They were just as funny as I remember.
My sister got me watching The Night of the Hunter & Play Misty for Me. Loved them both but Night of the Hunter was fantastic.
Was really impressed with both Triangle and Coherence but both are subjects that give me the creeps.
I enjoyed Pontypool a lot more than I thought I would, I could watch it again.
What’s up with Inherent Vice? LOL. I loved that movie but it doesn’t half give your brain a workout.
I enjoyed The Predator but it could have been better.
Considering the bad reviews I really enjoyed The Meg.
Night of the Creeps is a fun movie to watch.

Don’t Breathe: 7/10 – would have been 8/10 if the ending was better. Loved the movie except the last 5 minutes
Expendables 3: 8/10 – my fave movie in the trilogy
Cloverfield: 8/10 – loved this movie, can’t believe it took me so long to see it.

Tonight I’m watching Ghoulies 1 (again) not seen it in years.

This is one of the best Marvel movies. 9/10. So much comedy.

was a great era to get started with movies

The first 2 I have to mention are Adventures in Babysitting (A Night on the Town) and Splash

Adventures in Babysitting: We went the cinema (me and my sister, Julie) to see this. I came away from the cinema wanting to be Chrissy, loving Keith Coogan, having a crush on Thor (little did we know that years later we’d be big fans of Vincent) and our Jue loved George Newbern. Always good memories of this film.

Splash: The 1st Tom Hanks movie I saw and the reason I became a big fan of his

Karate Kid was a big movie for me….so was Space Camp (my first glimpse of Leaf Phoenix…he is still my #1 of all time today).

Then you had the Brat Pack movies: The Outsiders, Pretty in Pink, St Elmos Fire, Weird Science ( not mentioned them all here due to not having watched them all).

Horror Movies of the 80s: Ghostbusters (yes I’m classing it as a Horror…I went to see this for my 7th birthday), American Werewolf in London (my Dad still has no idea why he let me watch this when I was 10 haha), Spaceship (the one with Leslie Nielson), Gremlins, Critters, Ghoulies, Munchie, Child’s Play, Creepshow, Grimm’s Prairie Tales, The Lost Boys, House.

Then other movies I need to mention: Combat Academy (Keith Gordon), Ladyhawke (how I became a fan of Matthew Broderick), Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Police Academy movies, National Lampoon Vacation movies (we called my Dad, Clark Griswold for years LOL), Superman movies, E.T. (the first movie I saw at the cinema), Annie.

There’s so many more I could put here…I know a few will be obvious too.

This is why I became a fan of the movies….seeing so many awesome ones in my younger years. The 80s will always be my favourite decade for movies. Such special memories 🙂

So, I watched this last night for the first time.
Wow, how had I never heard of this before?
8/10. LOVED it. When my sister first told me about it, I thought it was a horror movie….it was even better 😉
It will defo be worthy of a second viewing.

I won’t be posting spoilers in the ‘last movie watched’ blogs….but I highly recommend this movie.

Viago is probably my favourite….but a shout out to Petyr too haha

The majority of fans are awesome people to speak to.

Over the years I’ve spoken to people who are intelligent, respectful and great to know.
I’ve already spoken about Russell Crowe fans…but every fandom I’ve been around has these fans.

Each fandom also has it’s idiots, and Star Wars is no exception.

Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran deletes Instagram posts after abuse

The above article sickens me. It sickens me to think there’s ‘fans’ out there who think they have a right to say whatever they want about the people who star in movies/tv etc.

What right has someone to disrespect Kelly Marie Tran this way?

By all means, dislike a character, dislike a movie….but do not disrespect the people who brings these characters to life.

I really enjoyed watching The Last Jedi.

I didn’t like Winona Ryder’s character in Girl Interupted….but I’m not gonna disrespect Winona for it. Susanna was whiny, it wasn’t Winona.

By all means, talk about movies….have constructive criticism about it…say how great the movie was..talk about the people playing these larger than life characters….just don’t be disrespectful.

To Kelly Marie Tran: The majority of Star Wars fans are good people….don’t let the bad, taint your views 🙂

What I’m Watching

Scandal (S4)

Movie of the moment – Creep
Last Movie Watched: September 2018

The Night of the Hunter
