Angels and Demons

I will be honest, I don’t read many books, since leave school you can count the fictional books on one hand, so this made this category harder than it should have been. Angels and Demons is one book I truly did enjoy, I love…

La La Land

Yeah, I am still going to pick this film even with all the hate it seems to be getting now, it tells a wonderful love story that shows us just the correct amount of love as it isn’t all about the happy ending but those happy moments. The songs are great…

The Best Christmas Scenes in Movies: Christmas in July Blogathon 2017

Drew was a fantastic and awesome person and gave me a huge extension so that I could join into the Christmas in July blogathon! Here’s my fave christmas scenes in movies from pretty much non-traditional holiday films.
If you didn’t check the other entries from this blogathon, remember to do that that because they are all awesome! 🙂

Drew's Movie Reviews

And here we are, the final entry of this year’s Christmas in July Blogathon. And what a better way to end it than with my friend and Ultimate Decades co-host, Kim of Tranquil Dreams. I could list everything she does on her site but that would take way too long. If you some how don’t follow her already, head over to her site once you’re finished here and give it a look. A movie doesn’t have to be all about Christmas. Some movies just have a single Christmas scene then move on. Kim is here to celebrate those little Christmas moments in non-Christmas films.


Isn’t July such a great month? Isn’t Christmas also such a fantastic holiday? It is why this blogathon is such fun to put together. Yay to Drew for getting this together. Everyone talks about the Christmas movies a lot and say Die Hard and Lethal…

Opinion Battles Round 14 Favourite Tom Hanks Role

Round 14 is here!
Well, its been around for a while. It just slipped past me between all the event coverage. Regardless, this time we’re looking at our Favorite Tom Hanks Role.
I’m going to confess that Tom Hanks is a great actor and I remember him being fantastic but I can never pinpoint anything other than Cast Away and voice for Toy Story. I felt like I was cheating by choosing Tom Hanks but apparently, I’m not alone in the love and appreciation for his role in a great Pixar animated film.

What is your favorite Tom Hanks role? Which of these choices do you agree with? Remember to drop a vote!

Opinion Battles Round 14

Favourite Tom Hanks Role

Tom Hanks is one of the iconic actors of the modern era, two Oscar wins to his name as well as coming off as one of the nicest men in Hollywood. He has grown up too soon, fallen in love with Meg Ryan three times, gone into space, been left on an island and even saved a plane for of people after saving Matt Damon. The question is what the role we enjoy watching the most from him.

Favourite Performance in a Horror Movie

Horror is a genre that often gets over looked when it comes to award season but it is easy to see just how good certain stars get plenty of chances to return to the genre in the future. Except for Silence of the Lambs who did clean up the Oscars we have had some brilliant performance in recent years.

Opinion Battles Round 11 Which Film Should Never Have Had a Sequel?

Round 11 of Opinion Battles is upon us! This time’s task is to share which films we thought should never have had a sequel. I have to say this did take a little brainstorming to do, however, I’m pretty confident about my choice. What might not be a horrible standalone movie was also not necessary and yes, I’m talking about 300: Rise of the Empire. It had a lot of 300’s tone but lacked so much in the charm in fact just felt like a meaningless story but done in a much less appealing way.

Some fantastic choices here as well. Head on over and check them out and drop a vote on which selection agree with the most!

Opinion Battles Round 11

Which Film Should Never Have Had a Sequel?

We as an audience can find ourselves sitting through endless sequels, prequels and remakes, some we enjoyed others we find ourselves wondering why they made another film in the first place at all. We are going to be looking at the films that should have remained stand-alone movies because the sequels have only ever eaten into the reputation of what was a great film.
