The Wizard of Oz – Most Influential Film Ever?

Its over 70 years old but its still got it. I could watch it once a week and not get bored. Its influence is everywhere. There’s all the quotes: We’re not in Kansas anymore, I’ll get you and your little dog too, there’s no place like

The Problem with Superheroes in Space

When Marvel announced that Guardians of the Galaxy was going to be part of the Marvel ‘Phase 2’ plan to take over the world, you know that the success of The Avengers has gone to someones head. Its one thing thing to have grown men in

The more annoying the person the more they like air guitar.

I have a not so irrational hatred of all things air guitar. It is embarrassing for all involved, the participant and the onlookers. I have also noticed that people who are irritating are the most fond of air guitar, especially on stage. This may be linked to

Odd Couple – Mariah Carey and anyone who is not a mirror

I know shes married and all, but I think its only because convention dictates that you can’t actually marry yourself. She must spend at least 15 hours a day staring longingly into the mirror and the remaining 9 hours bathing in donkey milk. As long

Nobody likes Shia LaBeouf

How can one annoying little dweeb be so untalented and unlikable yet still manage to become one of the most profitable actors in hollywood,  returning $35.80 for every dollar he is paid, apparently. For one, the boy has daddy issues. And not because he spends

Guilty Pleasures – Speed Racer

Aimed squarely at the under-10s this movie got lost  in 2008 and totally bombed. It being so different from the Wachowskis previous films, The Matrix and V for Vendetta, I guess making it appeal to adults was never going to happen. I love the way

Most Anticipated Movies of 2013

Here are a few of my most anticipated Films of 2013, which probably means they’ll turn out to be rubbish and really disappointing. Stoker The English language debut of Park Chan-Wook. Looks creepy, atmospheric and a bit Hitchcockian. Not about vampires. Good cast. Love the Poster. Oddly, its written
