My Days Off: Television

By Geeky Gem

In this series of blogs I have been telling you all about the things I get u to when I have a day off. This time around I am going to share with you some of the television shows I am currently watching and some I have on my list.

Criminal Minds


As you may know me a little bt by know, you will know I have a habit of not getting into certain shows once it has been on a while. Criminal MInds is one of these shows, I had seen the odd episode here and there and then a friend in work lent me season one and boy am I gripped. I love it, it’s a fantastic show about B.A.U ( Behavioral Analysis Unit) who are called into to find some of the most twisted people out there. It really is a good show.

Game Of Thrones: Season 2


Now season 2 pick up where season one left off and boy does it start off as it means to go on. I haven’t finished season 2 yet but I better get a move on as season 3 starts soon and I for one can not wait. The North remembers is a great season opener and it just gets better and better.

American Horror Story: Asylum


This season is as every bit as good as the first season. The best thing is you don’t have to have seen season one to enjoy the whole host of new and disturbing characters that walk the halls of Briarcliff Asylum. Full of twists and turns and some messed up story lines AHS: Asylum is brilliant from start to finish.

The Walking Dead: Season 3


Now did you really think I could go on without mentioning The Walking Dead. I think we all know how I feel about this show, so I wont go on about it too much. It’s just getting better and better. Watch it, just watch it.



Now Arrow is on my list of shows I have yet to watch, and was I really going to miss it. No as it’s based on the comic book character The Green Arrow and we all know how I feel about comics.  The Story is about  billionaire playboy Oliver Queen who after a violent shipwreck goes missing and presumed dead for five years. However he is later found alive on a remote island in the Pacific. This looks good and I will get round to watching it.

There we have it for another week, see you soon and happy watching.

12 Movies of Christmas: Edward Scissorhands

By: Caelrona


Hiya all! The week has gone and passed already, and what a week it was! We survived the Mayan ‘apocalypse’ of 12/21/12, and Christmas has come and gone just yesterday! I know I’ve been plenty busy as I’m sure you have been too. Lots of family, friends, gifts, cooking and baking but I managed to squeeze a little bit of time for you guys and my blog post. So now it is time for the final film of my 4 favorite Christmas movies. I’ve already written about numbers 1 – 3; Rent, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. So today I will be wrapping it up with my last, but not least, Christmas film – Edward Scissorhands.


Edward Scissorhands was produced and directed by Tim Burton in 1990, and released by 20th Century Fox. It is an American romantic comedy film, and an original production by Tim Burton. The genesis for the film was a drawing done by a teenage Tim Burton. During the production of Beatlejuice, he hired young author Caroline Thompson to adapt his idea into a screenplay. It has a fairly average runtime of 105 minutes.


Edward Scissorhands is an old woman’s tale of her first love. A blossoming and innocent love between her and an unusual, but very gentle, young man who is not quite a man. Edward is actually the creation of a brilliant scientist who tragically died before finishing, leaving Edward very nearly human but with large metal scissors for hands. When discovered by the local Avon lady, she takes him home.Things go well, and he is at first welcomed for his creativity and gentleness. However during the season of giving and good will towards men, things take a decidedly sour turn, because not everyone is accepting and suburbia is rarely kind to the unique.


This movie is fantastic for watching at Christmas time. It has a lot of really touching moments, especially the ice sculpting scene, with all the snow and ice shavings flying through the air. The acting was also really well done; Johnny Depp was superb in this and I don’t think it would have been quite the same if another actor had been used, although several worthy candidates auditions including Michael Jackson and Robert Downy Jr. Vincent Price is also awesome, even though his part is relatively tiny it is excellent. Edward Scissorhands was his last feature film, and I think he went out with a bang.

Well, there you have it! My final Christmas film choice! I really love this film, I saw it when I was just a little girl and it definitely is a must watch during the Christmas season, although it is great any time of the year! Anyway, I hate to leave you with such a short little post, but the Christmas season is busy for all of us! Hopefully next week I’ll be able to tell you about some holiday anime, because I’ve been dying to watch it.

Until next time, Happy Holidays;

A Mumbled Apology

Hello, it is I Hmsbeefnuts here, with an apology. I have been too busy with work etc. to write a blog for today. Sometimes work is so busy, and life too, that I simply haven’t had time to write a blog on any sort of geek subject. Illness hasn’t helped either, so once again, if you come to this blog for a daily slice of geekness, I apologise for not being able to fulfill my blog quota this week. Hopefully, next week will be back on track. Here is a picture of Batman, because, Batman makes everything OK.

Wednesday Whimsy

Wednesday WhimsyBy: Caelrona

Hiya all! Caelrona here with another steaming cup o’ Wednesday Whimsy for you all. Last week I told you all about how I was going to attempt to stick to HMS’s Wednesday Whimsy style of more or less posting about my week, and it didn’t go nearly as terribly as I thought it would. I mean I sort of felt like I was writing a diary entry, but the finished product wasn’t quite as bad as I thought it would be. However, this week while attempting to write my post I came to the realization that, holy shit my life is boring. Seriously, I couldn’t even come up with one paragraph. The most significant things I’ve done this past week were to buy a ridiculously awesome fuzzy pink hat with bear ears and lose my wallet – all in the same trip, so that was the most exciting two hours of my week. Not exactly blog material, right there. So this week I’m taking us back to my Top 10 Favorite Movies. Now, I know, I’ve already told you about them in a twopart blog. However as I was creating my list for those blogs, I ended up with more than just 10 movies. Some movies made my list at first, but then got bumped because I thought up a movie I loved just as much. Sacrifices had to be made, and I ended up with a small list of amazing movies I really love, that just wouldn’t fit. So without further ado, here are my Top 10 Favorite Movies: Honorable Mentions.



Krull was released in 1983 by Barclays Mercantile in conjunction with Industrial Finance and released by Columbia Pictures. It is an epic styled Science Fiction and Fantasy with a runtime of 121 minutes. The story takes place on the planet of Krull, where the evil being known as ‘The Beast’ and his army of ‘Slayers’ have invaded. Two rival kingdoms decide to unite as one in order to defend against the Beast’s incursion. The union is to be solidified by the marriage of Princess Lyssa and Prince Colwyn, whom come to love each other. During the marriage ceremony The Beast attacks and kidnaps Princess Lyssa, for it is foretold that she will bear a child destined to rule the Galaxy. Prince Colwyn must quest to find and defeat the Beast so that he may save his love, and his planet. This is a really great old-questy type of movie – if you are into those type of things. You might recognize it off of GeekyGem’s list; seems we both love it! I haven’t been able to find a DVD version so expect the grainy goodness that comes from watching old-school VHS. I first watched this movie when I was a wee little girl of maybe 3 or 4 and immediately loved it. Although, I will admit that part of my initial love of this movie is that my name is in it. Nothing holds a small girl captive like having the Princess in a movie share their name. The monster was a little creepy back then (to be honest, still is) but it didn’t scar me for life to watch it at that age (or did it? Ha <.<; ) so it is fairly family friendly in my opinion.


Resident Evil

Resident Evil was released in 2002-Current by Constantin Film in conjunction with New Legacy Films, Davis Films and Impact Pictures and was released by Screen Gems in the USA and Pathé in the UK. It is a Horror Fantasy film and the entire series of movies to-date has a runtime of 481 minutes. The series follows the life of a woman named Alice through the zombie apocalypse and beyond. The sixth in the series, Resident Evil: Retribution was just released not too long ago and looks awesome! Is 12 too young to love zombies? I honestly think that is when my obsession with them began. I’ve never played the games (I know, I know. I need to,) but the movies caught my attention; and more importantly they’ve kept it. There are a lot of movies series that lose quality as they progress; each sequel seems to be worse and worse. Maybe it is the zombies talking, but Resident Evil doesn’t do that; at least not for me. Probably not for the kiddies; but definitely a great watch!


How To Train Your Dragon

How to Train Your Dragon was made in 2010 by Dreamworks Animation in conjunction with Pacific Data Images and released by Paramount Pictures. It is an animated fantasy adventure movie with a runtime of 98 minutes. It follows an awkward teenage Viking named Hiccup who aspires to follow his tribe’s traditions and become a Dragon Slayer. When he captures a dragon he finds that he is unwilling to kill it and instead befriends it. But hiding a dragon from a village of Dragon Slayers is about as easy as it sounds. How to Train Your Dragon is a great film. When I first saw the trailer my reaction was this sort of odd cross between fan-girl squealing and shout of ‘OMGIWANNASEETHAT!’ What can I say? I love dragons; and this film didn’t disappoint. I saw it twice in theatre and got my hands on a copy of it as soon as I could. This is a fantastic film for all ages; kids will love it and so will adults.


The Scorpion King

The Scorpion King was made in 2002 by WWE Studios in conjunction with Alphaville and released by Universal Studios. It is a fantasy-historical action film with a runtime of 92 minutes. The Scorpion King is a prequel/spin-off of The Mummy series of movies, following Mathayus, the Scorpion King, a small character featured in The Mummy Returns. The Scorpion King follows Mathayus and his rise to power as the legendary Scorpion King. Mathayus begins his tale as one of the last of the Akkadians, a race of unparalleled mercenaries and assassins. He is hired to take out the Sorcerer of the tyrant Memnon, but unfortunately – or perhaps fortunately – not all goes to plan. Instead of killing the sorcerer he kidnaps her, and eventually the two learn that they have more in common than originally thought – including a common enemy, the tyrant king Memnon. Mathayus must battle King Memnon to save his Sorceress, whom he has come to love. The Scorpion King has been one of my favorite movies for a long time. It is my go-to movie for sick-in-bed days. I’m not sure why it has held its appeal for all these years; it just has. There is plenty of action to keep me happy, plus it was one of the first things Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson acted in, so there’s always that to make it awesome.


Robin Hood: Men In Tights

Robin Hood: Men In Tights was released in 1993 by Gaumont in conjunction with Brooksfilms, and was released by 20th Century Fox, Columbia Tristar Films and Distributors International. It is a fantasy-action comedy, with a runtime of 104 minutes. Robin Hood: Men In Tights is a comedic romp through the tale of Robin Hood. It follows Robin of Loxely and his band of Merry Men in their campaign to oust the odious Prince John, whom has taken control of the kingdom whilst his brother, the good King Richard, is off fighting in the crusades. Robin also endeavors to regain his family lands and save the fair Maid Marian from the unsavory advances of the Sheriff of Rottingham. I know that there are other Robin Hood movies out there; some arguably better than RH:MIT. However, this has always been one of my favorite movies. It is always great for a laugh, plus Cary Elwes is fantastic in this. I saw it when I was fairly young, and it quickly cemented its place as one of my favorite movies.


Well, there you have it! The finishing touches on my list of favorite movies. Cutting these from the original list was a hard thing to do. I love all these movies just as much as the ones that made the actual list, and I felt that they deserved mentioning as well. I have my reasons for not including them in the Top 10, but rest assured that entertainment value was not one of those reasons. These movies are all excellent films, and if you haven’t seen any of them then I highly suggest you plunk your rear end in a seat and turn on the DVD player, because you are sorely missing out. There are a lot of other great films out there, but for me these take the cake.

Until next time;

My Geeky Trivia

By Geeky Gem

I am not very good at keeping up with great television, sometimes a show is two season’s or more in before I get round to watching it and if I like it I will watch it untill I have caught up. This was in fact the case with this frankly awesome show. 24, it was at least 3 season’s in before I got to it, some people I worked with raved about it and where in times of stress would ask “What would Jack Bauer do?” this alone was enough for friends to lend me the first season. I have seen them all and just like everyone else that loves it I am waiting on news of the movie.  So here are some trivia bits for you to enjoy.

Each episode is supposed to take one hour of real time, but in actuality, three minutes are gradually added to the timer during the commercial breaks. The last three minutes of air time are used for viewing commercials, station identification, and scenes from the next episode.

Dennis Haysbert was shuttling back and forth from the east coast to Los Angeles during the production of the show, because he was filming Far from Heaven at the same time.

Reiko Aylesworth originally auditioned for the role of Nina Myers and Kate Warner.

In season 2, Tony Almeida’s ankle injury was added to the script as actor Carlos Bernard had really injured his ankle while playing basketball during a break in filming.

Partway through season 2, Kiefer Sutherland injured his leg while exiting his trailer, so a small scene was written in where Jack Bauer must pull a piece of shrapnel from his leg after a plane crash to explain Sutherland’s limp.

All cast members are required to have their hair trimmed every five days.

Completing an entire season, including pre- and post-production work, takes ten and a half months.

Other than Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), Glenn Morshower’s character (Agent Aaron Pierce) is the only one to appear in all 7 seasons of “24” as of 2009.

According to her profile on the 24 website, Teri Bauer (Leslie Hope) worked as a colorist for Dark Horse comics.

Sean Astin got his part on the show because he and producer Joel Surnow went to the same chiropractor. When Astin turned out to be a fan of the show, Surnow offered him the part of Lynn McGill.

Another week of trivia has come and gone, join me next week to see what I have for you.

My Geeky Trivia

By Geeky Gem

I have been working on this trivia blog for a number of months now and I have yet to mention any movies that every ones knows as a British thing. I am of course talking about the Carry On movies, My boyfriend loves them and owns all of them on DVD. So I picked one of his favourites as my subject matter, I bring you Carry On Abroad.

The last film in the series to feature “Carry On…” regular Charles Hawtrey. It became the last film he ever made and its completion marked the end of his fifty-year career. He went into semi-retirement, living in Deal, Kent, England.

This was however Brian Osborne’s second “Carry On…” film.

There was no music played during the filming of the party scene. Cast members had to improvise their dance steps as the scene continued. Even though the music remains the same, actors are often noticed dancing too fast or doing the wrong steps to the music. The music was added to the final film later in production. Eric Rogers wrote the score as he did for the majority of the “Carry On…” films.

The Wundatours shop was located in a parade of shops on Slough High Street which has since been replaced by an office block.

The car park at Pinewood Studios was covered in sand to portray the Spanish resort of Elsbels.

The wet cement which James Logan falls into is actually porridge coloured grey.

The television premiere attracted 18 million viewers in the UK in 1978, which was a record viewing audience at the time. The figure still stands today as one of the highest viewed premieres on British television.

Lindsay Marsh was cast as the aeroplane hostess but was never used in the final film. She still received her salary for her time.

In a budget cut, an entire dialogue sequence on the coach to the airport with Joan Sims, Sid James and James Logan was removed from the final film.

The rain shower scene was created by fire engine hoses aimed into the air.

So there we have it, another week of trivia just for you. Come back next week to see what I have in store for you.


By @hmsbeefnuts and Geeky Gem

I am going to break with tradition this month, and for the first time ever, the movie of the month is no movie, but a game. I was going to pick Wreck It Ralph as my choice, but it’s not out till February next year here in the UK, so that is gigantic megatonnes of monkey shit. There is genuinly nothing else that catches my eye out this month and sorry Gem, but Rise of the Guardians just doesn’t do it for me, I like my Guardians films about Owls. So a game then. November is the month when all the big Christmas games come out, and so it will be hard to choose just one. But cinemas loss in gamings gain. We have WWE ’13, HALO 4, COD: Black Ops 2, Hitman: Absolution, Far Cry 3 and of course Nintendo is releasing their Wii U. Exciting times.

Well I’m going to pick WWE ’13 as my game of the month. I loved WWE ’12, and the addition of all the attitude wrestlers and angles is hopefully going to be stellar. Here is the trailer…


I have to admit, that looks good. However when I sat down to tink about what I will pick for the other movie I think you should watch I found it hard. there is very little out this month that I fancy seeing then I came across this little nugget, The Rise of the Guardians.

Dreamworks are behind this tale, a tale that see’s the Tooth Fairy team up with Santa Claus. The story is simple Jack Frost is a happy-go-lucky boy, with no responsibilities in the world, apart from bringing winter wherever he goes. Now as we all know this is never always going to be the way and everything changes when Pitch,  the Nightmare King, plans to engulf the world in darkness. Leading to the Guardians, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and the Sandman teaming up with Jack to bring Pitch down and protect the all the children of the world.

It looks like a nice little movie to enjoy so as always here is the trailer.

UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

 Week ending 7th October 2012

By Kirkiechick

Welcome back to the weekly chart! There are a few changes in the chart this week. A new number one doing well and it is a sequel. So let us see how things are in the chart.

1.Taken 2, £7,378,048 (New)

2. Looper, £1,519,503: Total: £5,412,102

3. Sinister, £1,435,722  (New)

4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower, £827,983  (New)

5. ParaNorman, £797,754: Total: £5,263,993

6. The Campaign, £389,287: Total: £1,675,159

7. Brave, £304,735: Total: £21,570,349

8. Resident Evil: Retribution, £286,350: Total: £1,519,851

9. Untouchable, £245,343: Total: £964,308

10. Hope Springs, £190,860: Total: £3,563,199

Taken 2 comes straight in at number 1. It is a sequel to Taken, starring Liam Neeson as an ex CIA agent whose daughter gets kidnapped by an Eastern gang using girls in the sex trade. The first one was very violent and a 15, this sequel has a lower age rating of a 12A so families can go. I’m personally disappointed for the lower rating and feel that there should be more violence. The story this time around shows there is a consequence to Neeson’s character killing all the men he did in the first one. At number 2 we have Looper dropping from the top spot of last week. I went to see this film and thoroughly enjoyed the time travelling tale. I recommend! Sinister comes straight in at number 3. A jumpy horror from the makers of Insidious and Paranormal Activity, starring Ethan Hawke as a writer who moves into a house whilst he is writing a horror story and discovers a terrifying secret. Number 4 sees the teen drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower, starring Emma Watson from Harry Potter fame. ParaNorman is at number 5, one of the few children’s films out at the moment. It is such a heart warming film, go see! Will Ferrell comedy The Campaign drops slightly in the chart to number 6. This comedy hasn’t been as successful as other Will Ferrell comedies. Brave is still in the chart at number 7 and has been in the top ten for a consecutive ten weeks. Resident Evil: Retribution has dropped considerably down from last week’s third position to number 8. Apparently it seems that this film in the Resident Evil series isn’t interesting fans and audiences. The French film Untouchable goes up a place from last week to number 9. At number 10 Hope Springs still hangs in there in the chart. The older generation is keeping the film in there.

That’s it for the chart this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

Autumn of Terror: Halloween Movie Marathon

By @hmsbeefnuts

I love Halloween, I’m not quite sure why, but I love it. When I was a kid, we obviously went trick or treating, and it was fun, but it also made me incredibly sad. Why you ask? Well you see, where I lived, Halloween was never that big a deal. My parents tried their best and they always made it fun, but what I wanted to experience was that Halloween amazingness that every American child has every year. I was majorly jealous. There is something heart-warming about the entire community coming together, dressing up as monsters and ghouls in order to eat sweets and more importantly, ward off the dead for another year. It seems strange that the Americans take All Hallows Eve far more seriously than us Brits, because originally, it’s our bloody festival!! But anyway, good luck to them, I’m just a bitter, jealous man who can no longer dress up as a werewolf, or vampire and go knocking on doors for sweets, people thought I was weird last year for some reason…


I have then, been forced to find different outlets in order to have fun this Halloween. I have considered Ghost Walks, and Ghost Tours, but I imagine that the worst day to attend one of these is on Halloween, far too busy, I’ll go the day after. There are costume parties of course, but to be honest, I don’t drink, and the thought of being trapped in a house with fifty odd pissed up monsters, beloved characters and slutty vampires (wait, maybe I will have a party), is a bit of a nightmare. I couldn’t get anyone to attend a Black Mass at the local grave yard, and it’s hard to find the local Witches Coven in the Yellow pages, and the Google search I did, whilst visually stimulating wasn’t really what I was after. Time to rummage through the DVD shelves, invite a select few friends, slutty vampire costumes optional, but preferred, make some themed food and drinks, and sit back and get our scare on in a Halloween Movie Marathon.

I’ve tried to get a good varied selection together for today’s Marathon, so we don’t get bored, or feel the need to do something productive, as enthusiasm is at its peak, I have gone for Nosferatu. Yes it’s a silent movie, and black and white, but the eerie feeling that the film exudes is a good Omen (see what I did there?) for the films to come, we are all drawn into the nightmare unfolding on screen, and it is a great way to kick off this night. Oh by the way, I won’t be reviewing these films, but this will be more about the atmosphere and general mood of the evening. The film holds us in a sort of rapture, halfway through, the snacks stop being snacked and we are drawn into the silent horror. Once the film is over we snap out of the trance, and everyone says how surprised they are that they liked it and how creepy it was, score one for me I think.

A change of pace perhaps, and our first vote of the night. Well our contenders are Paranormal Activity, The Last Exorcism and An American Werewolf in London. We vote American Werewolf 5 – 3, and so off to the moors of England we go, beware the moon. We have all seen this before, and so a different atmosphere descends, not the eerie silence of Nosferatu, but a jovial talkative atmosphere, joking about when we first saw it, our favourite bit and Jenny Agutter in the shower. The energy levels in the room are at a peak, and everyone is having a great time with John Landis’ masterpiece. The film seems to fly by, considerably more crisps are eaten and drinks are drunk, and before we know it Jenny Agutter is crying and the werewolf isn’t a wolf any more, this doesn’t dampen our spirits though, onwards to….

The losers of the vote demand Paranormal Activity, and so we slip it in to the DVD player and off we go. Once more discussions range from, ‘Is the girl attractive?‘ we decide yes of course she is, and ‘how much of a dick is her boyfriend?‘ The men decide that they would be better boyfriend material then the dick in the film as the girls tut, and the first half of the film passes in this manner. The second half is a different matter, watching Paranormal Activity at home, is a different thing all together than in a cinema, this movie was made for DVD. Once the shit really hits the fan we are all jumping and going along with the action on screen, one member of the group, who has not seen it before is quite scared, this is defiantly the way to watch this movie. During one of the security camera montages, the door bell rings and some of the more unstable members jump, but it wasn’t a Demon, merely the Pizza Guy.

A short break is the order of the day as the sun goes down outside and the night begins proper. The X-Box gets turned on and a few games of Nazi Zombies later, and a few toilet breaks, we are ready to continue. I decide that I should choose the next film, and go for the little known Trick ‘r Treat. No one has seen this before, I had heard good things online, and so this is the first film tonight no one has seen. Wow, it is great. A myriad of stories all take place in a town on Halloween, and nasty things happen. This film has a bit of everything in it and it once more energises the room. Hot girls, nasty surprises, and spooky pumpkin headed kids all add to the fun, it is a worthy addition to the marathon, and will be a Halloween staple from now on.


Its dark now, and we have the sweets out ready for any Trick or Treaters, we have all eaten rather a lot, so the food is relegated to the kitchen for the time being, and we decide that a change of genre is needed. A classic we can all agree on and love is the order of the day, and vote number 2. Scream, Scream 4, I Know What You Did Last Summer and Alien. An eclectic mix. The winner? A draw between the two Screams, a further round knocks out the latest one, so we put on the original and best. Boisterous may be the best word to describe how this film went down. We all try an approximation of the Scream Voice and ask each other what’s your favourite scary movie? And do you want to die Sydney? All part of the fun. What a great film Scream is a classic. However, after five films, fatigue is starting to seep in, it’s time to end the fun for one October night.

UK Top 10 Films

By Kirkie Chick

Welcome to the weekly cinema chart! The box office this week has perked up in numbers according to reports. So let’s have a look at the top ten films this week!

1. Looper, £2,427,994 (New)

2. ParaNorman, £1,080,197: Total: £4,304,900

3. Resident Evil: Retribution, £792,265 (New)

4. The Campaign, £772,102 (New)

5. House At The End Of The Street, £545,961: Total: £1,864,304

6. Killing them Softly, £470,712: Total: £2,069,984

7. Hope Springs, £423,051: Total: £3,041,790

8. The Sweeney, £410,578:  Total: £3,876,142

9. Brave, £400,511: Total: £21,219,445

10. Untouchable, £317,979: Total: £493,309

We have a new number 1 this week. Looper is a popular science fiction film starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The mob in 2072 when they want rid they send them back into the past where a hitman is waiting, but one guy goes back and is met by his younger self. The director did a film called Brick (2005) which found a following on DVD. Knowing this film I hope that Looper is just as good. Number 2 sees ParaNorman sitting strong in the chart. This is such a good film and I highly recommend. In at number 3 is Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth film in the Resident Evil series. It seems from reports that this film isn’t as good as the others. It has been released in IMAX like the previous one and in some cinemas only in 3D, which maybe harming the film’s attendance. Time will tell. Number 4 is Will Ferrell’s comedy The Campaign, the story of a congressman targeted by two CEOs to rid him of his position use a naive man to get votes. It seems like your typical slapstick comedy from Will Ferrell. House at the End of the Street sits at number 5. I went to see this. I had heard mixed reviews about it. I thought it was an average psychological thriller, possibly a bit predictable. Number 6 sees Killing Them Softly is still bringing in audiences. I have also heard of mixed reviews about this film. I say make up your own mind. Hope Springs, drops down a couple of spaces from last week to number 7. It does seem that younger audiences are seeing this film as well as the older audience. The Sweeney has also dropped from its previous position to number 8. This film has a steady audience but may be gone from the top ten next week. Brave is still sitting in the chart at number 9. It is such a charming film and I highly recommend. Number 10 sees a film which was released last week but didn’t make the top ten, Untouchable. It has charmed audiences. The story of a wealthy man who after an accident becomes a quadriplegic hires a young man from the wrong side of the tracks as his caretaker. It is a French film with English subtitles. It has been praised at various film festivals.

I hope you will find a good film to watch amongst this chart. That’s it for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!
