So the next installment in Disney’s live action remakes of their cartoons see Emma Watson, Luke Evans and Dan Stevens bring the Tale as Old as Time to life in all its beauty.
I’ve not been a fan of the live action films but Beauty and the Beast is by far one of my most favourite films of all time and with it being a true live action remake I was looking forward to seeing just how well the story looks in live action.

The story of Michael Glatze, a former gay rights activist that turned his back on homosexuality to become a Christian Pastor.
James Franco stars as Glatze in one of the most interesting roles I’ve ever seen him in, also staring Zachary Quinto as Glatze’s partner. I found the film randomly whilst looking for something to watch on Netflix and was surprised by how touching I found it.

As you can guess seeing we’re like a episode or two away from finishing the flashback reviews for the anime series I have fallen in love with Death Note since beginning it way back. It is a intelligent series about a young man who finds a way to punish the bad guys in the world who get off from their crimes but then shows how playing god completely changes someone. Its a intelligent anime series that then focuses on a mental chess game between two highly intelligent characters.
Netflix has a history of making wonderful things so I was really excited. Real, REAL excited.

I am a huge fan of King Kong and a even bigger fan of King Kong’s 2005 re-make starring Adrien Brody, Jack Black and Naomi Watts. To hear a new movie with Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman and John C. Reilly was coming out I was extremely excited to see a new chapter in the story of Kong.
Did the film live up to its predecessors?

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?

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.

Can you believe it has nearly been 20 years since Austin Powers first danced onto our screens and stole our hearts.
Staring Mike Myers as both Austin Powers and his nemesis Dr. Evil the film was a much quoted beast of a film. It was a icon of my young life and a film that always makes me laugh no matter how long its been between watching it. A parody of spy films that spawned two sequels.
