Jondee here at Dublin, 1985, First, a little side story, I had the disc for Sing Street since October, it was only recently that I streamed it on Netflix so it has taken a long time to get to Sing Street which was released in April here. Strange that I took so long, but this […]

Re:tro Re:view – Warcraft!

Jondee here in Azeroth, I was all set to see Warcraft, it was #10 on my anticipated movies of 2016 list, but the reviews discouraged me. So I waited, listened to a friend recently who said that it depends on your Warcraft knowledge how much you would enjoy the film. I know a little, some […]

Jondee here on Jarsoom, Before the Force Awakens, sixty five years before A New Hope, there was Barsoom. The trailers for John Carter were horrible, they gave little clue about the story, and seemed to re-has what we already saw in Avatar and other science fiction films. To judge John Carter based on them, is like […]
