TV Preview: Doctor Series 7 Part 2

Some things in life fill me with complete joy. Long walks on the beach, the scent of freshly cut grass and sunflowers on a summer's day. Oh, and being able to type the next sentence: Doctor Who is back bitches!

That's right Whovians, your favourite 1200 year old, double-hearted, kind of schizophrenic alien that zooms around time and space in a blue box is back on Australian television screens this weekend. So what can we expect from the second half of Series 7? Well dear fellows, read on...

Film Review: A Good Day to Die Hard

Back in Action: Bruce Willis as John McClane

There come a point in every movie franchise where it starts to outstay its welcome. For Indiana Jones, that time came with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull; Paranormal Activity did the same with its 3rd or 4th instalment and Transformers with Dark of the Moon

A Good Day to Die Hard is a case in point. So far beyond its sell-buy date that it is starting to smell bad, A Good Day to Die Hard should serve as a warning to all movie executives to quit while you are ahead.

Rank the Films: Die Hard

As any regular reader of feeling fuzzier will know, lists are pretty darn nifty. We have a profound appreciation for straight-up lists. This is the thinking behind Rank the Films, a regular feature that pulls apart the pros and cons of a series of films, ranking them in order of good to bad. 

With the fifth instalment in the franchise, A Good Day To Die Hard, hitting Australian cinemas this weekend we take a look at the Die Hard franchise, ranking them from worst to best. Give it a read and leave me a comment letting me know what you think!

Voice of Reason #9: The Ultimate Action Hero

James Bond? What a posh nonce. Jason Bourne? On your bike, mate. Ellen Ripley? Suck on an alien pod. You guys ain't got nothin' on John "Yipee-ki-yay motherfucker" McClane. With A Good Die To Die Hard hitting Australian cinema screens this weekend, we take a look at why John McClane is the baddest of asses in action cinema.

Verdict: Community Season 1

Given that Community premièred on American TV back in 2009, it can be said that I have been a little slow on the uptake. Four years since the first season aired and I've only just stumbled across the show by chance after looking around for something new and interesting to watch; as it stands, I'm over the moon that I did and a little sad that I didn't sooner.

60 Second Film Reviews #2

Quick movie reviews, without the waffle. 60 Second Film Reviews is a regular feature where I compile together brief reviews of recent films I've watched at home or at the movies - and generally couldn't be arsed didn't find time to write a proper review for. 

This month, we have Wreck-It Ralph, The Woman In Black, The Inbetweeners Movie and Cloud Atlas.

Voice of Reason #8: In-Flight Films

Okay, so a recent flight across Australia got me thinking; what is the best kind of film to watch in-transit? Airlines often populate their in-flight entertainment systems with a miniature digital library of cinematic treats, with my last flight offering everything from the thrilling and often satirical Argo to the cutesy and family-friendly Mr. Poppers' Penguins.

So what to choose? With so much on offer, it can feel overwhelming trying to whittle it down. You weigh each option up carefully, not wanting mess up such a crucial decision. Before you know it, you've spent so long trying to choose that the plane is now landing and you've missed your chance. Bummer!

So anyway, here we have a few ground rules (or should that be sky rules?) on what not to pick next time you are trapped inside a tightly packed metal tube with hundreds of complete strangers and you need to find a way to pass the time.
