United 93

Movie info from IMDB Movie reviews from Metacritic Having cancelled our UGC/Cineworld monthly passes towards the end of last year, we’ve kind of fallen away from watching movies at all. However we are now getting to the point that the movies coming on TV (via Sky Movies) are ones that we missed at the cinema,…Continue reading United 93

February

New Year has long since passed but it’s only now that I’m going to start focussing on the year ahead. With being away in Spain earlier in the month, and our nephew turning 18 – celebratory dinner/pissup this weekend – we’ve not really been looking any further than the end of this month. So what…Continue reading February

Reeling

We’ve not been to the cinema in ages, and are planning on going tonight.

Yes we’ve got a lot of catching up to do film-wise and the UGC pass will…Continue reading Films

Die Another DayFinally got around to seeing this last night (first film on our monthly film ticket at UGC Cinemas). Initial reaction was pretty good, but I know a lot people who didn’t like it, saying that it strayed too far from the ‘Bond ethos’ (yes someone actually said that to me). However I think…Continue reading
