Growing up I was a closet Geek, now I'm out and proud! I have my likes and my dislikes but I don't let a dislike cloud an opinion. I'll give everything a go and will sit and be tortured through a lot of mundane things. Right at this moment I'm really into the whole Doctor Who / Sherlock / Hunger Games thing. Now if only a cross over were to happen.....

The BFG (2016)

Roald Dhal’s classic film hits the big screen with a brand new adaptation from the genius that is Steven Speilberg. The BFG was one of the very first books I learnt to read and one of the very first books I fell in love with.

Growing up we didn’t just have the book though we had a wonderful cartoon adaption which brought the Big Friendly Giant and Sophie to life.

Now we have a new BFG and its bound to be magical right?

Austin Powers : Goldmember (2002)

Rating : *

The third and so far last of the adventures of Austin Powers meets even newer threats along with the same old same old threats and a lot of 60s flair.

A new evil base, a new evil plan and a new adventure for Austin and his new partner.

I didn’t feel the second film matched up to the first but can the third save the series?

Austin Powers : The Spy who Shagged me (1999)

Rating : **

After the huge success of the first movie a sequel was always going to come around and so it did in 1999. Starring Mike Myers once again as the title character and main bad guy Dr. Evil and with a whole string of new henchmen and spies the second movie attempted to do what the first one did bigger, better and faster.
