And if the poison doesn't get you... God will. There is a good armful of films that come across as weird and strange while being absolutely engrossing, "Bad Boy Bubby" fits into that mold with ease.

Doctor Sleep (2019) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Doctor drifting off but not quite feeling rewarded the next morning In 1980 Stanley Kubrick adapted a 1977 Stephen King novel called "The Shining" (1980) into a successful horror film. Stephen King was never quite happy about how the film turned out, so in 1997 King wrote and produced a version of his novel into… Continue reading Doctor Sleep (2019) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Skyfall (2012) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A gun and a radio. It's not exactly Christmas, is it? The 23rd official film in the Bond franchise, and Daniel Craig's third entry, is "Skyfall".

Never Say Never Again (1983) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Vodka on the rocks?? Right then, let's get this out of the way; "Never Say Never Again" is not an official Eon studio version of Bond per say, despite the fact that it uses the Bond character and characters in the Bond universe. Sean Connery reprises his role as the super spy that he last… Continue reading Never Say Never Again (1983) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Nobody knows where they are being kept, but Bond has a… Continue reading Thunderball (1965) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

007, Bond, James Bond – License to Kill

This year was supposed to mark the release of the new 007 film "No Time to Die", but with a global pandemic running rife this has been moved back to 2021. While that's annoying for the fans and for the movie making industry it has allowed me time to re-watch all the old films from… Continue reading 007, Bond, James Bond – License to Kill

Braindead (1992) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

No, this is not the one with the donkey and the chambermaid... When Lionel Cosgrove takes his date Paquita to the zoo his over-brooding and over-doting mother is bitten by an extremely rare and poisonous Sumatran rat-monkey. The rare specimen was brought back from Skull Island (yes, the same island King-King is from) and legend… Continue reading Braindead (1992) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Mindhorn (2016) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This isn't the Bronx, this is the Isle of Man! A ludicrous but heart-felt comedy action which pays homage to some of the cheesiest TV cop shows and action series of the late 70's and early 80's. If you remember "Bergerac", "Starsky & Hutch" and "The 6 Million Dollar Man", then you might just get… Continue reading Mindhorn (2016) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
