One of my first real vivid cinema memories is sitting in the Regal Theatre, our local Clonmel cinema back in the day and hiding under my coat. A kid was hiding in a kitchen from raptors. I thought I was going to pass out with fear. These kind of memories are why I love going to the cinema to see movies rather than the small screen.   Continue reading

Popcorn Time: Mad Max Fury Road


So I always go to a film the minute it comes out. Yeah I’m a weirdo..¬†I like to get in there before it gets built up with hype and I have any preconceived ideas about it.¬† After seeing this its reminded me why!

Ye know I have had a few attempts to get into see¬†Mad Max but misprinted cinema times etc kept getting in my way. (I mentioned it to the website re times and they are sending me out a Mad Max goody bag, score,¬†so I was thinking I really had to watch it…)


Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlise Theron, Nicolas Hoult,Hugh Keys Burn, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley,  Zoe Kravitz Continue reading

Popcorn Time: McFarland USA

I dunno what is going on with my film choices lately but I seemed to have really regressed to child hood movies.

My brain can’t take any heavy thinking lately (ahem ever)¬†so at the mo¬†I’m gravitating to¬†funny and uplifting stuff … ones where I check my brain out when I push play.

Luckily for my brain (but not movie world as a whole) most films seem to be like this at the mo and I am spoiled for choice.


Now if you are based in America or basically anywhere you have probably seen this already. Continue reading

Popcorn Time: Spy

Again a¬†futile attempt¬†to see Mad Max, this time with the lovely Lisa. ¬†IMC had their times ¬†wrong on website. (Honestly the gods do not want me to see Tom Hardy… Whyyyyyy????)

So…we had to choose between Spy and San Andreas.. This one was on first so it won.

Yeay for making the best of things when your film isn’t on for hours, cause this was so funny!
