During the Easter holidays, I decided to take my girlfriend for a trip to the ‘Warner Bros Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter’ in Leavesdon. We had only heard great things about the film studio over the past few years so Vicky was ecstatic to go. Just to get us in the mood for the experience and remind ourselves, we had watched all of the Harry potter movies in the month or so beforehand – I would…

  I love trailers, a good trailer can get you so excited and psyched about an upcoming television program, film or game. There have been a few awesome previews recently and 2014 looks like it’s going to be an awesome year for entertainment. I know that I’m going to need to find some time over the coming months to sit down in front of my new swanky television. It is definitely going to get some serious viewing! I’ve gathered together…

  I’m not going to lie, I’d never heard of Qwertee before Christmas. My brother came down for the festive period and had a really cool selection of tees, which spanned funny, cult, obscure, geek, film, TV and games. I was intrigued as to where he had got these T shirts as I hadn’t seen the designs before, they clearly weren’t the ones you get in HMV that you see loads of other people with. That’s when he told me…

  I had the pleasure of seeing All Is Lost last night and thought I’d write a quick little ‘spoiler free’ review of it. All Is Lost stars Robert Redford and him alone. He plays an unnamed man who is the only character in the entire film. Lots of questions are left open to your imagination, for example who this man is and why and where he is travelling. I really liked this and throughout the film I was futilely…

  What are the greatest Christmas films? This question is particularly important to me at the moment as I’m buying a new Panasonic TV from John Lewis and am planning on breaking it in with plenty of the best Christmas movies over the festive season. I’ve been thinking about which films I’m really looking forward to watching on this new super clear, high resolution television. I’ve drawn a few into a short list to share with all of you:  …

  Shaun of the Dead Shaun of the Dead is the pin up for all comedy horror films, this is because it stays true to both genres and manages to balance the comedy and the horror. It’s the first film in Edgar Wright and Simon Peg’s ‘Cornetto Trilogy’ which I had never even heard about until my brother told me. The Cornetto Trilogy is Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End. Apparently they are called this because…

  Okay this trailer has been out for a bit, but hey, I’ve been busy and only just got around to watching it. The first Hobbit film was good, however I thought it was a bit too long, especially if you were wearing 3D glasses. I really enjoyed the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and hope the Hobbit trilogy can live up to it, although i’m a bit worried. This trailer starts off really exciting and really adventurous, then… …the…

  This is the last installment of Top Horror movies ready for Halloween. Even though we arn’t even half way through this decade, it was a piece of cake choosing great horror films, I think it’s going to be a good decade for horror… Sinister I really like Ethan Hawke, he is a great actor (see Training Day, Day Breakers). He puts out another cracking performance in Sinister which is an awesome horror film. I thought it was very creepy…

  I’m busy getting ready for our Halloween horror fest here at Wild Tide, following on from the 90’s here are my top 5 horror movies from the 00′s. Hope they make you hide behind the sofa: 28 Days Later Probably in my opinion the best zombie film, the zombies have a visceral, frantic, deadly quality which is lacking in a surprising amount of big zombie films (World War Z). The action is always really intense and the film is…

So getting ready for our Halloween horror fest here are my top 5 90’s horror movies. Hope they bring a chill to your spine:   The Blair Witch Project This movie cost just over $20,000 to make but made almost $250,000,000. Obviously this was a massive success for the film buisness and produced a massive surge in ‘found footage’ style movies in the 00’s (most of which are poor) What I love about Blair Witch is that you never really…
