*NEW* THE QUIET MAN REVIEW *NEW*

A Ford/Wayne collaboration that wasn’t a Western? A retired American boxer (John Wayne) returns to the village of his birth in Ireland, where he finds love in the form of a fiery redhead (Maureen O’Hara). Easy going, comical, perfect Sunday viewing. Is this really from the man who gave us The Searchers? "This is Ireland, … Continue reading *NEW* THE QUIET MAN REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* BRIDGET JONES’S BABY REVIEW *NEW*

Third time's the charm? Bridget's (Renee Zellweger) focus on single life and her career is interrupted when she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch . . . she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby's father. My initial reaction when my mum asked if I would take her to … Continue reading *NEW* BRIDGET JONES’S BABY REVIEW *NEW*

MAN UP REVIEW

Right leads. Wrong film. An easygoing, if incredibly silly little rom com that does just enough to keep you smiling for 90 minutes. A single woman (Lake Bell) who's mistaken for a stranger's blind date (Simon Pegg), leads to her finding the perfect boyfriend. When Bell's character Nancy first graced the screen, I could feel … Continue reading MAN UP REVIEW

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT REVIEW

There’s a little bit of magic in the cast BUT apart from that the moonlight just revealed all the flaws with this dated affair, old sport. Not my best summary. Despite the age gap, Colin Firth and Emma Stone have good chemistry and make this easy going and predictable 20s flick more than watchable. So … Continue reading MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT REVIEW

LOVE, ROSIE REVIEW

Love the cast. But the film? The film was actually a lot better than I expected. Certainly better than The Best of Me and that's down to the chemistry of two very likeable leads in Claflin and Collins. Yes, yes! I saw a rom com . . . and I liked it. Kind of. It's … Continue reading LOVE, ROSIE REVIEW

THE REWRITE REVIEW

I think this needed a few more rewrites. A real shame. Hugh Grant applies his bumbling, miserable British charisma to this terribly drab yawn-com that delivered little on romance or comedy. I know. Hugh Grant has been playing the same character for years. Why would he change? His last offerings may not have been timeless … Continue reading THE REWRITE REVIEW
