Last night was the first time in a long time that I got to go to the cinema to watch a a movie. I missed a lot of good movies so let me know what ones I should try and catch up on.

The movie I went to see was Doctor Strange now I was not looking forward to this movie what so ever. I hadn’t read any of the comics, all I knew about the film was that is was about sorcerers (I don’t know if that is the right word never mind if I spelt it correctly or not) So why did I go and see it I hear you asking and the answer is simple. I didn’t want to see Guardians of the Galaxy either because it have a talking racoon that love guns in the movie, but I went to see it anyways and the I loved the movie and the talking racoon that loved guns turned out to be the best part of the movie.

So what Im trying to say is that Marvel have a way of turning the ridicules into something everyone can enjoy, so yes I gave them the benefit of the doubt. As I was watching the first scene I was thinking o god what did I let myself in for. It looked like a cross between Inception and the Green Lantern.

So I settled in for the long haul. All I could do was think of bad things to say about the movie like Cumberbatch charter was a dick and how was he ever going to make a joke. (Marvel movies success comes partly from the humor in there movies) As the movie went on and it started to explain the world that it was set in I started to enjoy the movie. The fight scenes where very good and special effects were top class and with Cumberbatch playing the lead role I knew that Marvel had an other hit on there hands.

The rest of the world must think so as well because the world wide takings for Doctor Strange is nearly $500 million. Doctor Streang is a very good addition to the Marvel Universe and it will be interesting to see him interact with all the other heroes. we got a sneak peek of how an encounter would go at the end of the titles as Doctor Strange has a chat with Thor and the results are great. The little sneak peek also hint that we will see Doctor Strange in Thor: Ragnarok which is due out in 2017

Over all I loved this movie and would highly recommend it to any marvel fans and even if you not a marvel and have never seen any of their 13 movies beforehand don’t worry you will still be able to fellow along. Have you seen Doctor Strange yet if you have let me know what you taught about it but leaving a comment int he comment box below. You can also check out our last post here.

Hi and welcome to this weeks Saturday Night Stay In Movie (S.N.S.I.M). For those of you that don’t know what the S.N.S.I.M is I will tell you.

On a Saturday night there are two groups of people. The first group are the ones that go out and party with their friends are just go out for dinner with their partners. The second group of people are the ones that stay in on a Saturday night for what ever reason. Well I write this blog of the second group of people.

This week I have chosen The Dark Night.

The Dark Night is the second in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Night Trilogy. The Dark Night Trilogy was hailed as one of the best tellings of the Batman story. In my opinion the Dark night is the best out of the 3 movies. The reason I say this is because of one man and its not Christopher Nolan, or Christen Bale but because of the the performance of Heath Ledger as the Joker.

Screen Shot 2016-09-02 at 17.40.00

He was able to portray what I taught was the perfect Joker. He was crazy and evil but the things he did was because he wanted to have fun which makes him even more dangerous. It was great to watch.

I said earlier that I didn’t watch the movie because of Christopher Nolan or Christen Bale but don’t get me wrong they too made the film brilliant. Nolan’s vision for the movie was spot on and I taught that even with the movie lasting over 2 hours the was it was paced it didn’t fell like that long.

Christen Bale’s performance as billionaire/supper hero was solid as well.

As I said before this is one of my favourite Batman movies for many reasons but one that I can’t forget to talk about is the action in the movie from car cases to fights to explosions this has the perfect mixture of drama story telling and action.

Hi and welcome to this weeks Saturday Night Stay In Movie (S.N.S.I.M). For those of you that don’t know what the S.N.S.I.M is I will tell you.

On a Saturday night there are two groups of people. The first group are the ones that go out and party with their friends are just go out for dinner with their partners. The second group of people are the ones that stay in on a Saturday night for what ever reason. Well I write this blog of the second group of people.

I chose a movie that you can watch to pass the time. This week is no different.




This week I am going with a classic family favourite, Shrek.

It has been over 15 years since the release of Shrek in cinemas, and everyone fell in love with Donkey and Sherk and Fiona. I don’t think there is many people out there that hasn’t seen Shrek but just in case here is the ruff outline of the story.

Screen Shot 2016-08-26 at 16.32.22

Shrek is an ogre that live in a swamp and he loves how quite it is until the swamp get over run by fairy tails that have got kicked out of the nearby by Lord Fraquaad. To save his home and Shrek makes a deal with Fraquaad to rescue Princess Fiona who is trapped in a tower protected by a dragon. Shrek sets on his quest to save Fiona and he has unlikely sidekick for his mission, a talking Donkey.

Screen Shot 2016-08-26 at 16.27.01

This is the sort of movie that the whole family can sit down and enjoy together. Mike Myers voices Shrek with Eddy Murphy as Donkey and Cameron Diaz as Princess Fiona. As I said the movie is great but it also has a brilliant sound track as well, so you will be laughing and tapping you foot along to the songs.

The first Shrek movie took in over 480 million at the world wide box office which made sure that there was going to be more Shrek movies and there was. There was four more movies and a spin off movie in Puss in Boots.




I think this is one of my favourite animated movies of the 2000s. It s funny both kids and adults can enjoy it over all its a great family movie to sit down and watch on a saturday night.

Bowfinger (1999) Official Trailer - Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy Movie HD thumbnail

Hi and welcome to this weeks Saturday Night Stay In Movie (S.N.S.I.M). If you are new to S.N.S.I.M let me tell you what it is about. There are two groups of people on a Saturday night. The first group is the people that go out and party and have a good time. The second group of people are the one that stay in for what ever reason. This blog is for the second group of
people.




This week I am going with a comedy staring Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Heather Graham, and Robert Downey Jr. It is of course Bowfinger. Steve Martin stars as a producer that never got his break so he decides to make things happen for himself. He decides to put his life saving into a movie and try and shoot it with one of the biggest stars on the planet but the only thing is the star (Eddie Murphy) doesn’t know he is even in a movie.

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 17.47.10

As you can expect it is bit mad, but that is what makes it brilliant. This is one of my favourite comedies ever. Steve Martin was at his best as the producer who will say and promise you anything to get his movie made. Eddie Murphy was also at the hight of his career and works very well with Martin, first as Kit Ramsey and then Jiff Ramsey Kits twin brother.

Screen Shot 2016-08-19 at 17.44.46

This is your typical Steve Martin movie full of laughs and none stop puns. If you liked movies like Roxanne and the Man with Two Brains then you will love this movie too.

Over all this is a great movie that everyone can enjoy. Here is the trailer, have a look

Hi and welcome, I think it is about time for an other review. This week I took a look at Bad Moms. Bad Moms has an all star cast made up of Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith,  and Annie Mumolo.

From the people that brought us the hangover, they now bring us Bad Moms.




Amy (Kunis) has a hectic life she has one overachieving  child and one underachieving child that makes her do her homework for him. she also has a husband that doesn’t want to help around the house and doesn’t appreciated what she does around the house as well as holding down a full time job. Amy find her husband cheating with an woman online and kicks him out of the house.

Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 18.02.03

This is the final thing to push Amy over the edge, She finally snaps and decides that she is going to have some fun and look after herself for once. She meets some new friends that have kids and starts to party, as well as getting into a fight with the mother that run the PTA.

From the outset you know things are going to go wrong but you keep watching anyways.

Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn are very funny together as the moms who decide to cut lose and look after themselves and have some fun.

Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 18.02.25

When I heard that this movie was made by the same guys that made the hangover movies it made a lot of sense, because the movie felt familiar to me like I have seen it before. This made me doing the review of the movie very easy if you liked the hang over then you will like this movie. It did do something that I wasn’t expecting It made me think about how hard my mother worked when I was growing. Now don’t get me wrong I knew she did a lot of for the family and I did appreciate it but I never really got how much stress that would put her under doing all that work which makes me appreciate her that much more.

This is defiantly a movie that a husband and wife can sit down and enjoy together, it is more so for the mothers out there. Here is the trailer take a look and see what you think.

Have you seen Bad Moms yet? if you have let me know what you taught about it by leaving a comment in the comment box below. You can also check out some of the other reviews that I have written up here. Thanks for reading until next time keep on Viewing.

Dangerous Minds Trailer thumbnail

Hi and welcome to this weeks Saturday Night Stay In Movie. If this is your first time to hear about S.N.S.I.M it is simple.

The way I see it there is two groups of people on a Saturday night. The ones that go out partying and having fun and the ones that stay in for whatever reason. S.N.S.I.M is for the second group of people.




I will suggest a movie that you could watch with that will pass the time for you.

This week it is Dangerous Minds staring Michelle Pheiffer as a former Marine who get a job teaching a class of at risk underachieving students that has no respect for authority.

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 17.19.21

She must gain the respect of her class before she can start teaching them anything. This was based on the autobiography of LouAnne Johnson a retired U.S Marine who took up teaching at Carlmount High School in Belmont California.

The movie was a panned by critics when it was first released but went on to make over $170 million at the box office.(It just shows you that reviews are just the opinion of the writer and just because a movie gets bad reviews doesn’t mean its a bad movie but some reviews do get it right like Fantastic Four)

I didn’t see this movie when it was first released It must have been 5 years later when I first got to see it, but when I did finally get to watch it I did really like it.

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 17.19.46

I taught Michelle Pheiffer was very good in it and I just liked the story over all. I don’t want to call it a feel good movie but in a way it is. You have a person trying to do the right thing and help the kids out and to a certain extant it works but she cant change them all. Check out the trailer

When you talk about Dangerous Mind you have to talk about that song as well which became an instant classic. Coolio’s Gangster Paradise. Too this day when it comes on the radio I cant help but sing along.

Have you seen Dangerous Minds if you have let me know what you taught about it by leaving a comment below.

I was ment to do this last week but I just didn’t get around to it so here we go, it’s the Star Trek Beyond Review.

First of all I would like to say that I am not a big Star Trek fan.




I have seen a few of the older movies but never watch the shows. In saying that I am really enjoying relaunch of the franchise. I taught the first movie was great. It looked great, it was well acted and it had a good flow to it. I also seen the second movie Star Trek Into The Darkness, which wasn’t as good as the first movie but still watch-a-bill.

That brings us to the latest instalment, Star Trek Beyond. First of all when I seen the trailer I taught this would be the end of the franchise. To me the Enterprise was as much as a character of the movies as the actors themselves, and as you seen from the trailers the Enterprise doesn’t last long in this movie at all.

Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 14.33.05

That was just the trailers and Im here to talk about the movie. First of all it starts off with a traditional captains log where captain Kirk lets us know what the crew has been up to since the last movie. They are 900 days into a 5 year journey and Kirk and the crew are feeling the strain of prolonged missions in space. Kirk is questioning his position as captain of the Enterprise and even looks into leaving and taken up a post on a deep space port.

Don’t worry lades and gentleman he has to go on one last mission before he can leave. His mission was to save the crew of a ship stranded on a planet. He embarks on a what should be a simple rescue mission. When they get to the planet they quickly find out it is no ordinary mission. The ship is attacked and crashes to the planets surface after the crew is captured, Kirk and few others manage to escape and start to plan on how to save their crew members.

Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 14.34.01

That is all of the plot I am going to give away I don’t want to ruin the movie for you. I enjoyed this movie a lot one of the main things I noticed was the fact that this is the first movie in the new series that moved away for the old movies and started to tell its own stories. The story is told at a fast pace you will not fell like over 2 hours has passed.

There was a lot of character development in the movie and not just with Captain Kirk. The likes of Scoty and Bones got a lot more screen time this movie which I enjoyed as I like there characters and the way they interacted. There relationship is a really looked at throughout the movie. I think the fact that they got more screen time is down to Sean Pegg taking over the writing of the movie. I think he did a great job with it.

Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 14.34.17

I enjoyed this movie a lot. It did fell like it was a stepping stone for more stories to be told away for the original movies, which I am happy about because the old movies were good but it is time for new stories, what do you think, let me know by leaving a comment in the comment box below. Over all I would recommend this movie to and Sci-Fi fans and any Star Trek fans you will enjoy the ride. Let me know what you taught about the movie by leaving a comment below.

Hi and welcome to this weeks Saturday Night Stay In Movie. We have been doing this blog for a while now but we are still getting new people reading it each week so this is for the new readers. There are 2 types of people on a Saturday night the people that go out partying and having a good time, and then there are the people that don’t go out (for whatever reason), well this blog is for the second group of people. I give you a suggestion on a movie that you can watch to pass the time.




This week I am going with an all action movie Battle Field LA. This isn’t going to be everyones cup of tea but as I said this is just a suggestion. The Story is based around a SSgt Nantz (played by Aaron Eckhart) who is about to retire from the core when meteors start falling from space and the world quickly finds out that it is no meteor shower it is in fact an alien invasion. Nantz is sent to a platoon that is sent behind enemy line to clare out the civilians from a police station and get them back to the FOB (forward operating base) before the Air Force bomb the coastline of LA. Their rescue helicopter gets shoot down, so they have to find there own way out of the bombing zone.

Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 11.15.54

This is one of my favourite action movies because it takes a lot of things that I like and puts it into the one movie. It is an army movie, an invasion, a Sci fi movie and a survival movie. One of my favourite show is Stargate because it put the US army against aline forces who are stronger but the army keeps fighting anyways, and that is exactly what Battlefield LA is about. The action sequence are very good and looks great. It is one of those movies that you should just sit back and enjoy and not think to hard about it. When Battlefield came out first it got slated by the critics but I was glad  that I didn’t listen to them because I really enjoyed the movie. The thing about critics is that everyone is different and like different films so it is really only an opinion of one person.

Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 11.16.52

Let me know what you think about Battlefield La by leaving a comment in the comment box below. If you don’t watch Battlefield La let me know what movie you watched this Saturday Night.

Hi and welcome to this weeks Saturday Night Stay In Movie. Now most of you will know what this is about but I will explain to the people that don’t know what the Saturday Night Stay In Movie is about. It is quite simple, there is two types of people on a Saturday night the people that go out parting and the people that stay in for what ever reason, well this blog is for the second group of people on a Saturday night the ones that stay in for what ever reason. I suggest a movie that you can watch to pass the time, see didn’t I tell you it was simple.




Well this week we are going al the way back to 2001 for our Saturday Night Stay In Movie. It is The Last Castle. In my mind this is one of the most underrated movies ever (but that is just my opinion) It stars Robert Retford, James Gandolfini, Mark Ruffalo, and Delroy Lindo. Retford stars as Lieutenant General Eugene Irwin, a legendary solder who on his last mission disobeyed a direct order from the commander and chief ( the President) and got 8 of his men killed. He was sentence to 10 years in the Castle Military Prison. He just wanted to keep his head down and do his time but it becomes clare that he has and other battle to fight this time agents the warden of the person Col. Winter (James Gandolfini), who is ruling over the prison.

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 12.15.20Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 12.15.07

When this came out in 2001 it was meat with mixed reviews and only made 27 million at the world box office, but I think this was due to the fact that 9/11 had just happens a month earlier and the world was not sure what what was going to happen. I didn’t find this film until 2005 when I was looking for a movie to watch in my local extravsion I took a chance on it and Im glad I did I loved it. The acting was top class the story was good and the action was very good. Altho now that I look back at it there was one big hole in the story, How did the prisoners get all the weapons made and hidden while under the watch of the grads. Im sure it was filmed but ended up on the cutting room floor for what ever reason.

Over all this is a good movie that is well acted. I think you will enjoy it. Let me know what you think about it by leaving a comment in the comment box below.

Hi and welcome to this weeks Saturday Stay In Movie for those of you that have never seen the Saturday Night Stay in blog yet, it is pretty simple. I suggest a movie that people can watch as they stay in on a Saturday night as everyone else goes out partying. See I told ye it was simple well this week we are going with relatively new movie, Its Straight Out of Compton.




This was a huge movie in 2015. No one was excepting Straight Out of Compton to be as big as it was and I think that was part of its success because everyone didn’t now what to expect going into it and what they got was a bloody good movie. For those of you who have not seen it here is a quick run down for you. Straight Out of Compton tells the true story of the rise and fall of Gangster Rap group N.W.A. even though it was about the group it mainly focused on the relationship between Easy E and Ice Cube.

Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 16.40.00

The first 2 acts of the film was great it show the lad where they came from and what they had to deal with on a daily bases from gangs and the cops. the last two acts is where the movie went for the traditional move line (start of in a bad place in act one. Act work hard to get out. Act 3 there is a stumble. Act you work hard again and everything ends happily ever after.) the last two act show that there isn’t always a happy ending. I’m not fully sure of the back story of N.W.A as I was a bit too young when this all happened so I just went in to watch a movie, which I really enjoyed. There was no Oscar worthy performances in the film, I think, but there was no bad acting either all in all it was enjoyable movie. I give this movie 4 out of 5.
