Hans Zimmer Brings A Bit Of Magic To Dublin

20170613_205752

Being entirely truthful, any words I use to describe the gig I experienced last Tuesday night are wasted, but I can’t exactly pull the whole blank review trick again, so I will endeavour to summarise it best I can.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

GotG_Vol2_poster

Reviewing a Marvel film can be tough at the best of times. They’re blockbuster superhero flicks and any criticism aimed at their lack of substance or emotional depth etc can be seen as just taking them too seriously. This applies doubly to the Guardians Of The Galaxy series. The first film was touted as potentially being Marvel’s first legitimate flop, and instead went on to briefly hold the mantle of highest grossing release the studio had at that time. We’ve been here before though, in fact Marvel has been here several times; when the first film releases and becomes such a smash hit that the anticipation for the sequel reaches far beyond fever pitch, and preparation for disappointment sets in. So how does GOTG 2 fair in that arena?

Spotlight Review

Spotlight is the film you don’t want to watch, but you know you need to. Much like our own home grown products like Song For A Raggy Boy and The Magdalene Laundries, this is a film that tackles a tough subject and tells a story that is difficult to hear. Personally, I was extremely keen to see the film and see how the issue is dealt with, whilst at the same time I was massively apprehensive about how I would feel come the closing credits. Suffice to say, I was right on the money and by the time the credits rolled I felt angry, betrayed, frightened and well and truly upset. This is exactly why you need to see this film.

Firstly, I’m not going to be revealing any spoilers in this piece. If you want to see this film, you will and I don’t think for one second that my opinion will influence your decision to do so. For that reason why would I need to give an in-depth and spoiler filled detailing of the reasons to see it? With that out of the way…wow.

Flicks On ‘Flix – Orange County

Wikipedia.org

Unfairly leafed in with the Farrelly Brothers and American Pie stable at the time of its release, Orange County is probably the film most in need of defending to date on Flicks On ‘Flix. Directed by Jake (Son Of Lawrence) Kasdan, starring Colin (Son Of Tom) Hanks, Jack Black, John Lithgow, Catherine O’ Hara and with a host of cameos – this film knows exactly what it is but maybe gave the impression it was something more inadvertently through such a stellar cast and crew. Ignore all of that and you’ll find its just an extremely enjoyable watch instead. Continue reading Flicks On ‘Flix – Orange County

Flicks On ‘Flix – Community

No, we’re not moving over to Fridays. This week’s Flicks On ‘Flix has been delayed because it is an extra special one. At least it is to me. This week we’re looking at Community. Beloved by few, if Nielsen Ratings are to be believed, Community has become a cult hit since it began six years ago, taking the tropes of other TV shows and movies and spinning some hilarious meta humour at them. Its career is a storied one and it looks for all intents and purposes that it has finally come to a rest with this most recent sixth season. Season 1 – 5 are available on Netflix and there is no better time than now to binge and take in the wonderful nugget of comedy that was Community.

Flicks On ‘Flix – Throw Momma From The Train

Maybe it’s just me, but there was a time where it felt like this film lived on RTE. Or maybe I just gave up on trying to find things to watch and repeatedly popped in our VHS copy. Either way, we’re onto an absolute childhood favourite of mine here and one which I probably shouldn’t have even been watching as a child (like most of them!)

TGIF indeed, and what a wonderful warm front rolling in to make the most of the weekend. Yeah, I can’t be telling the truth all the time. What I can do however is tell you what you may have missed this week on I’m Talkin’ Here:

Pro 12 – All Eyes On Ulster And Munster
The pick of the weekend’s Pro 12 rugby is certainly the derby of North and South. Who will leave victorious?

The Goggle Box – Thrones Finds Its Footing
Finally some life has returned to Game Of Thrones, get all the info here and while we’re at it check out a Season 1 review of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Flicks On ‘Flix – Grabbers
This week’s Flicks On ‘Flix sees a small island off the coast of Ireland terrorised by a sea monster. Look, just trust me on this one.

See y’all Monday!

Game Of Thrones S05E02 – The House Of Black And White

Some notable returns this week in GOT in the shape of Drogon (seriously Dany, look after your pets) and Arya!! Finally one of the shows best characters is getting some screen time. Admittedly it still wasn’t a whole lot much of anything but Arya’s is the story most seem to be able to connect with and everytime Maisie Williams is on screen the show gets a little more, human. As mentioned Drogon made a return in the closing moment of this week’s episode and he’s still the rebellious teen we last saw him as. That Dany is fated to die at the talons of him or either one of her other two dragons seems more and more inevitable but her struggle with “motherhood” has and still is being portrayed very convincingly.

Flicks On Flix – Big Stan

Few actors cause such excessive eye rolling as Rob Schneider. I’ll begin by saying that I don’t plan to defend the man’s many career missteps at all in this piece but I will implore and hopefully convince you to give this, his directorial debut, a shot and I’m confident you’ll thank me later.
