I’ll kick off my side of the Halloween season with a musical!
OK so you are never going to be scared of Little Shop of Horrors from the opening singing with a terrified looking cat watching three ladies in matching blue dresses singing in a thunder storm till the end number.
There is no better time then to watch it though then during Halloween. Especially with young’uns who are too young for the Freddies and Jason’s of the world (they magic them into their heads without seeing what adults have done to their nightmares!)

Kicking off our Halloween season….
Bright colours, bad hair and terrible acting.
What more needs to be said about a horror movie from the 80s?
Saying all that and “Where’s my DOG?! Where is Pooh Bear?!” I loved this film for SOOO many reasons!

So this is a film I’ve been wanting to write a review for ever since I watched it. A fascinating look at the relationship between a lonely man and a operating system that is designed to bond with their owners.
A Spike Jonze film starring the ever eccentric Joaquin Phoenix.

After the amazing X-Men First Class when they announced a second film with the First Class cast I was very extremely happy. When we found out that the original cast was joining the cast of First Class I was somewhat worried.
Did the film work or did it turn into another Wolverine movie?

The biographical story of the life of Charles Chaplin, starring Robert Downey Jr as the legendary British Comedian.
It is one of those movies that I’ve been meaning to watch for what seems like forever. I’m a big fan of Downey Jr and this film has always been highly recommended viewing, but it hasn’t been until now that I’ve found time to watch it.

Last night I went to see a film that it won’t surprise people I went to see. I love the time period it is set in (WWII) as well as half the cast (I literally grew up with Bill Murray and John Goodman films and lets not get into Matt Damon!) I saw two distinctive trailers for the film, one that set it up very much as a comedy film and one that gave it a bit of an edge, so going into the film I wasn’t too sure what I was going to expect to see.
(Many spoilers below just so you know….)

I sat down to watch The Hunt, a Danish film starring Mads Mikkelsen. A thought provoking look at a modern day Witch Hunt.
The film deals with a teacher that is falsely accused of abusing children. It focuses on how the adults come to the conclusion and what happens to the teacher throughout the ordeal.
