The Fast and the Furious: 2 Fast 2 Marathon

Previously on The Fast and the Furious marathon – one good movie, and three… interesting efforts, has brought us here, sanity more or less intact. All roads lead to Rio, and our induction into the fast family continues… The revised drinking rules for Sunday are: Someone uses a car metaphor, eg: “Damn, girl, when are you […]

The Fast and the Furious: Movie Marathon Part I

16 years, 8 movies, 394 Corona’s… one long-running film franchise crammed into a weekend. We’ve decided to undergo a marathon to end all marathons. They haven’t got friends, but they got family… Back in the spring of 2017, Vin Diesel and The Fast and the Furious family became our world for a few days. We had both […]

I can’t believe that neither of us have seen… HALLOWEEN!

Warning: contains spoilers (obviously). There are always classic films that your other half hasn’t seen, and in some cases neither of you have seen. So every now and then we’re watching an unseen classic together to see if it’s really worth all the fuss.

Memento is one of my favourite films, a unique thriller that really […]

I can’t believe that Ollie hasn’t seen… WALL-E!

Warning: contains spoilers. (Obviously.) Liz: Everyone loves a good Pixar movie, don’t they? And everyone’s got a favourite one, whether it be Toy Story, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, etc (but not Cars. Never Cars.) Wall-E is my favourite of them all (before that, it was actually Monsters, Inc.) and Wall-E the robot is probably the […]
