Film Review: Silver Linings Playbook




Director: David O. Russell
Starring: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver
Runtime: 122 minutes

Silver Linings Playbook is a beautifully crafted tale of two damaged and down-on-their-luck people who find themselves searching for that 'silver lining' in one another's lives. Sometimes emotional and raw, Silver Linings Playbook takes a sensitive topic and injects a dose of heart that will win audiences over.

Best of feeling fuzzier: 1 Year Anniversary!

Happy Birthday to me!

Hey everyone! It's now been one whole year since I set up this blog and started rambling at ya'! So, in order to celebrate, I thought I'd compile together a collection of some of my best posts and features from the last year. Some that have been the most popular, others which I am personally proud of or pleased with. Make sure to let me know in the comments section below what you think are some my highlights from Year 1 of blogging at you all (or ranting to give it it's proper term). 

Give them a look over and let me know what you think! Thanks to everyone for giving me some great feedback over the last year, it's always great to hear what people think of the stuff I write. If you have any tips, feedback or even requests just let me know! Thanks again!

Film Review: Jack Reacher

Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher

Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Starring: Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Jai Courtney, Werner Herzog
Running time: 130 minutes

The first film to be centred on Lee Child's burly super sleuth, Jack Reacher is a combination of Bourne thrills with Sherlock Holmes-esque deduction that hits the target for the most part.
