When I'm not screening piles of CVs

I'm at the movies or writing reviews

If you are a fan of blood and gore and pure, unadulterated violence, murder and mayhem, you are going to love this movie.  It will keep you biting your nails and wincing in horror, right till the surprising twist at the end.

Rough and ready Chon (played by Tayler Kitsch) and the oh, so chilled Ben (Played by Aaron Johnson) are best friends sharing a magnificent home in Laguna Beach, California and a girlfriend, affectionately known as O! The two have a flourishing marijuana growing business. 

Transformers 3 - Dark of the Moon

The saga continues…

Sadly, I didn’t see Transformers 1 and 2, as I really love Science Fiction movies.  I mean, I saw all gazillion Star Wars movies, so I am not really sure why I didn’t see Transformers, BUT I can say with confidence that if you have seen the first two, you are in for a treat, and if you haven’t, don’t worry, you will catch on quickly and still be in for a treat! And, unlike the first two, this sequel is in 3D, which makes it even more spectacular.

If you are in need of a good laugh, Bridesmaids in the movie to See!… I saw this movie in the US about 6 weeks ago, and I actually laughed till I cried.  Whilst not slapstick comedy, the fils moves from hilarious situation to another, with ease.

Madagascar 3 - Europe's Most Wanted

Written by Joy Dembo on . Posted in 2012

The first Madagascar movie had such a profound effect on me that since I saw it, ALL hyenas are now called Fusa!  In fact when my Toy Pom has her summer cut and looks like a hyena, we call her Fusa Face!

And, whilst Madagascar 3 doesn’t feature the Fusa or have anything to do with the island of Madagascar, the rest of the gang are all present and accounted for and in hilarious form.  Add some new characters to the equation and the wonder of 3D and you have Madagascar 3 - Europe's Most Wanted!
