Merry Christmas


Well, it rolls around once again. This year seems to have flown. Today I again got some lovely gifts as pictured below… ranging from the 4K editions of No Time to Die and the Indiana Jones Collection. I also received the newly released special edition of Jackie Chan’s Armour of God. I also got a book exploring the visual style of the movies of director Wes Anderson, of who I have become quite a fan of. Oh, and of course I’ve had the official Scarlett Johansson calendar again. Add to this some clothing, smellies and vouchers etc.

So Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all visitors of this blog. I hope you are having a nice time too regardless of if you celebrate this holiday or not. Ho Ho Ho!

Love Hard


Viewed – 03 December Netflix

It’s time for a Christmas themed movie… and I’d heard this one, a Netflix original was good so I thought I’d give it a go. A romantic comedy following unlucky-in-love journalist, Natalie who falls for a guy on a dating app. However when choosing to visit the guy’s home to surprise him for the holidays – she has a surprise in store.

Ho Ho Ho?

A relatively interesting take on the rom-con may not exactly do anything that original, this still managed to hold my interest, mostly due to the very likeable performance from Nina Dobrev – who bares more than a passing resemblance to a friends-era Courtney Cox as well as Elizabeth Olsen. The cast in general are all decent.

With some funny situations along the way, a worthwhile message about having ‘confidence to be yourself’ and an utterly charming ending – I enjoyed this quite a bit, even if it has little in it to stand out in a crowded Christmas movie genre. If you’ve seen most of the classics, certainly give this a watch. Oh and Die Hard is a Christmas movie!

Verdict: Good

Merry Christmas


Well I realise I skipped a year, as I wasn’t well last Christmas. This year I’m in much better health and can post my usual Yuletide blog post. This year I got some lovely prezzies, my usual Scarlett Johansson calendar, the Criterion release of The Irishman, Tenet in 4K UHD, the official guide to Cyberpunk 2077, two framed movie prints (Taxi Driver & Pulp Fiction) with signatures, a FunkoPOP of The Mandelorian’s The Child, … as well as clothing, smellies, chocolate etc. Very very nice.

I hope everyone I got prezzies for liked what I got them, and I send my Christmas thank yous to all the visitors of this blog and hope you have a great Christmas and a happy New Year (let’s hope 2021 is a vast improvement on 2020).

Two crime classics…

Merry Christmas


Well it’s finally here. Hope all that have visited my blog over last twelve months enjoy the holiday and have fun! I’m very pleased with the prezzies I got and those that I got for seemed very happy with what I got them!

I’ve been eating, drinking and playing Pokémon Let’s Go and Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Update

Well it’s almost Christmas, and as I look over the past twelve months in preparation for my annual Top Ten movies, I notice that I haven’t dedicated as much time to this blog as I have in the past.  I think it’s been a bit of a ‘life get’s in the way’ situation although I still really enjoy expressing myself here.  So thankyou for sticking with me during the downtimes.

This past year has b20180914_150138224_iOSeen good rather though, after all I got to see my favourite band, Garbage in concert again in September and even saw The League of Gentlemen live on stage, both experiences being particular highlights for me personally.  It’s been great to get such opportunities and to go for them rather than shying away or letting other things, less memorable things take priority.

As far as this blog’s primary focus is concerned, there’s been a few underwhelming movies of which I’ll be compiling a ten disappointments like I did last year.  On the gaming front there’s also been several highlights so look out for a post about that too.  I’ll be posting these towards the end of the month with the Top Ten movies posting on 31st.  Other than that there may be a couple more movie reviews and possibly a gaming impression or two before the end of the month as well as my usual Christmas day post.
