Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets review

Maybe for the next sequel, Bourne could take down some other group of baddies. In …

Throwback Tuesday: Fave scenes from THE BOURNE IDENTITY (2002)

Hello friends! I thought I'd introduce a new blog series, as I'm so good at keeping up with every single blog series I've put together, right 😉 This series is sort of inspired by Deadpool believe it or not. I just saw it last night and it's got a lot of hilarious 80s throwbacks so I thought …

Happy Monday everyone! It's a sweltering HOT Summer weekend and those who know me well know I'm not a big fan of heat and humidity so I actually spend a lot of time indoors and got to see quite a lot of new movies as well as rewatches. You could say it's a pretty eclectic weekend …

Musings on Hollywood Relentless Miscasting

I read the other day that Tom Hardy was being considered for lead role in the Jack Ryan spinoff Without Remorse, which prompts me to write this piece.
