A Bird Story – Silently Superb

0I apologise for two things before I start this review. Firstly, and this might seem a bit weird, but I apologise for the fact I am creating a break in my so far complete list of No-English Moviember posts. I know it seems weird but I shall look back at this with a slight pain in my festering heart that I broke the chain of No-English Moviember reviews.

Gold – Everyone Deserves A Chance

I suspect many of you may not have heard about this film. Neither had I in fact until I found out my local cinema was doing a few showings. I watch the trailer and thought “Well that looks… interesting”.

“But Chronic Chronicler”, you may be asking again you very questioning reader, “doesn’t interesting usually mean something is, or was, terrible and you just don’t want to say it?” You are very observant mystery reader and yes I agree with you.

No. No no no no no no no no. I said I wasn’t going to do a pun on the title in my last article and I’m sticking to my guns.

The same with books. Just because it’s got a bit of history to it doesn’t necessarily guarantee I’ll like the damn thing. But then the TV film on BBC 2 called The Wipers Times come around and damn it for being so damn good.

The World’s End – Unsatisfying End of the Cone, or Ice-Cream Perfection?

ImageAnother review I was meant to have done weeks ago, like Pacific Rim, but I’m doing it now so please take some time to read what I have to say on this film, despite the fact you’ve probably seen the film and read and watched a lot of reviews that are around by now. Unless you’ve not seen the film, not looked at any reviews or have only just realised The World’s End is out, but can’t be bothered to see the film to form your own opinion, here is my take on the final part of the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy that is The World’s End.
