The Belko Experiment – Movie Review

As the nights are drawing in there’s no better way to pass the time than watching a movie, curled up on the sofa, with a cosy blanket, popcorn and your favourite refreshments. As Halloween approaches and the season of the horror movie is in full swing. I wanted to share my thoughts on The Belko Experiment. When it comes to scary films I’m a wuss. I’ll opt for scream over nightmare on elm street anyway (Freddie Kruger scares the crap out of me). Disclaimer – May Contain Spoilers. The Cast John Gallagher Jnr – Mike Milch Tony Goldwyn – Barry Norris Adria Arjona – Leandra Florenz John C McGinley – Wendell Dukes. Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn also appear in […]

Day Out At The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

When I was younger a day out at the Edinburgh Fringe festival was a regular occurrence. I would go with friends cram in as many shows as possible in one day. Sadly since becoming ill with fibromyalgia I rarely go to any shows especially in the city centre. This year however David & I made plans with my cousin and his wife to go see a few shows.

Rogue One – A Star Wars Story 

(SPOILER ALERT!!) Finally after waiting months for the blu-ray release of Rogue One A Star Wars Story it was released on 10th April and arrived on my doorstep very promptly that day.  I settled down with popcorn in hand to watch it for the first time last night. If you’ve seen A New Hope you’ll know that the rebel alliance have the plans of the Death Star meaning they have a way to destroy it. Well Rogue One is all about how they get those plans Its probably best to start by saying that Rogue One isn’t like any Star Wars movie thats been before.  Unlike the original movies, prequels and The Force Awakens that center around the protagonists’ being […]
