I just can't help myself. I'm debating whether or not to go see The Impractical Jokers Movie in theaters. It seems like this should be an easy 'no,' right? Especially when there are some good options out right now (The Lodge; The Photograph; The Invisible Man). Yet I'm having trouble resisting. For those who don't … Continue reading Top That: Five Movies I Probably Shouldn’t Have Paid to See
Last time we were here, Paul was drawing comics -- dark and sort of depressing ones, but successful ones nonetheless. He was portraying Harvey Pekar, author of the underground comic series 'American Splendor,' autobiographical accounts of an ordinary and, yes, depressing life. (Hey, he was from Cleveland.) But now the plot thickens as we turn … Continue reading Paul G — #10
As we wind down another great blogathon, I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your great posts. I'd also like to tip my hat to my co-host for firstly coming up with the concept last year and for helping manage it again this time around. As always, it's a real … Continue reading Decades Blogathon – Inside Man (2006)
It's hard to believe but we are officially in the penultimate day of the 2016 Decades Blogathon, a 10-day event in which myself and the envy-inducing Mark from the terrific Three Rows Back have been asking bloggers to share their thoughts on films from decades past, releases from years ending in '6.' We will have … Continue reading Decades Blogathon – Grandma’s Boy (2006)
We are somehow at Day #7 in Decades '16. Man, how time flies! Once again, this second edition is being co-hosted by myself and the one and only Mark from Three Rows Back, where we've been asking bloggers to share their thoughts on films that were released in any year ending in a '6.' … Continue reading Decades Blogathon – A Scanner Darkly (2006)
Ruth from Flixchatter stopped by to give us her thoughts on 2006’s Casino Royale, the epitome of James Bond. Head on over to Three Rows Back and have a read!
It’s week two of the Decades Blogathon – 6 edition – hosted by myself and the awesome Tom from Digital Shortbread! The blogathon focuses on movies that were released in the sixth year of the decade. Tom and I are running a different entry each day (we’ll also reblog the other’s post) and I’m thrilled to welcome the one and only Ruth from FlixChatter. I’m sure many of you will know of Ruth’s brilliant site and for our little event she is reviewing Daniel Craig’s first foray into the world of Bond with 2006’s Casino Royale.
I can’t believe it’s been a decade since Casino Royale came out. I just rewatched it this weekend to refresh my memory, though I had probably rewatched it a few times in the last 10 years. It’s still as good as the first time I saw it, and I still would…

In day two of the Decades Blogathon ’16 we have a review of Darren Aronofsky’s simply unique The Fountain (2006). Head on over to Three Rows Back to find that review! Thanks everyone!
It’s day two of the Decades Blogathon – 6 edition – hosted by myself and the one and only Tom from Digital Shortbread (check out his site by the way – that boy can write). The blogathon focuses on movies that were released in the sixth year of the decade. Tom and I will run a different entry each day (we’ll also reblog the other’s post); and this excellent review of Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain comes from Jenna and Allie’s site Flick Chicks.
I was a spectator for last year’s Decades Blogathon, so I am absolutely delighted to make the cut to take part this year! As someone with a worryingly long ‘must watch’ list, this was the perfect chance to tick off a movie that I’ve been putting off for a while. The Fountain (2006) has been on my list for a while now. I can’t remember exactly…

OooOooOOOoooOOoooOo the chills are running down my spine as we enter into October for the. . . second time on TBT. I've got the chills because of the films I know I have to watch and/or review in the coming month; I've got the chills because I'm not looking forward to days in my car … Continue reading TBT: The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
Well today, I went from this to that, and that to this and that to that and finally from this to this. It's been a struggle. While all this dilly-dallying is going on, there are kids going back to school. Or college students preparing to do so. For those people I spare no sympathies because I too was … Continue reading TBT: Accepted (2006)
. . .as if it was going to be anything else! Or maybe the choice isn't as obvious as I think it is. Despite the fact that 2006 doesn't seem like much of a 'throwback,' per se, and that I just sent in a Guest List for the 007 Best Moments in this very film to The … Continue reading TBT: Casino Royale (2006)
