Shaolin Soccer And 5 Other Completely Bonkers Martial Art Movies

Shaolin Soccer And 5 Other Completely Bonkers Martial Art Movies.


Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005): A Gay Buddy Film

After being told by numerous people (well, two at least) that Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was a dynamite film that showed implicitly that Shane Black was an awesome director before Iron Man 3, I decided to watch it. Especially after seeing a clip from the film that featured Val Kilmer, Robert Downey Jr and Evan Parke… Read More ›

iSteve From Funny or Die

Anyone who’s read my blog (or conversely, watched my YouTube channel) will know that I am about as obsessed with YouTube as your average young person. And yes before you point it out, I’m not that young. But having a daughter who has a fairly successful channel on the old “Tube” introduced me to another… Read More ›


Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion

Directed by David Mirkin this 1997 comedy, like fine wine, gets better with age; or repeated viewings, based on two characters developed in the stage play Ladies Room it is a lightweight delicious romp through two unfocused girls memories of high school and their first ten-year reunion. Starring Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino the films… Read More ›

Paul (2011): Glimpses of Greatness

I really wanted to love this film. I’ve been a fan of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost since Shaun of the Dead. I didn’t see them work together on the hysterically funny Spaced television show until after I’d seen their ZomRomCom. I am also a huge fan of Seth Rogan. I also adore Sigourney Weaver…. Read More ›

Phyllis Diller (1917 — 2012): They Don’t Make em Like that Anymore

This incredibly funny woman started life as a housewife who dreamed of doing comedy. I saw her on a repeat of Groucho Marx‘s You Bet Your Life show from the 1950’s. As a contestant. Groucho interviewed her and she told of her dream. They used to show that program a lot. Phyllis Diller worked a… Read More ›

Zathura (2005) A Pale Jumanji

I waited seven years to watch Zathura.  In the 2005 trailer they showed a little kid asking, “What do they eat?” Dax Shepard says, “Meat.” Little kid, “That’s good.” Shepard, “Dude, you’re meat.” For some reason that particular exchange struck me as hysterically funny. Surely, I thought, a film with dialogue that funny is going to… Read More ›

The Inbetweeners to be Remade in US. Really??

The Inbetweeners is quintessentially English. Like never ending cups of tea and scones with cream and jam or cricket. It specialises in that brand of British humour that is not afraid to poke fun at the English way of life and have a good laugh while doing it. The show is another of those ‘young… Read More ›

Little Miss Sunshine (2006) Dysfunctional Family Fun

Written by Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and directed by not one but two directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (these directors have been a ‘double-act’ for years, mainly in the realm of music videos and documentaries) Little Miss Sunshine is a ‘feel good film’ that entertains and amuses. The film marks a couple of firsts. It was Michael… Read More ›

Do I Know You?

I have, in my short time on this earth, done many different jobs. I have also done these jobs in many different places. As a result of all this ‘chopping and changing’ I have met a lot of folks. Now I may not remember your name or where you came from or what town/city/company you worked… Read More ›
