I’m not quite sure when I first watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but I know I wasn’t too young. Certainly a teenager. I’d heard of Monty Python but was more familiar with John Cleese from Fawlty Towers. I think I bought a collected dvd set, although maybe I caught some on the television… […]
There is really very little to say about this film. It was entertaining enough while watching it, but it wasn’t a gripping or wildly entertaining film. Perfectly suitable for a dreary wet afternoon’s entertainment. It made me laugh in a couple of places, and I always like Brendan Gleeson in any role1 So yeah, I’m […]
From the title of this film you’re probably going to expect some bitchiness and maybe hairpulling. Well you get that, plus a whole heap of brutal brutal fighting. Veronica and Ashley were friends at college, they haven’t seen each other in years when they bump into one another at a party. Their meeting does not […]
The IMDb summary reads : A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster. The trailers for this film didn’t really make me want to go see it, I’m a little tired of so-called comedy films that turn out to have few, […]
Riggan (Michael Keaton) is the star of a series of superhero films, the Birdman of the title, but he wants to be known for more than that. He wants to be respected as an actor. So he has adapted the work of Raymond Carver into a play. He is also directing and staring in this […]
Read originally 19/07/2010. Reread June 2014 On my reread I enjoyed it just as much as the first time round, if not more. Wodehouse has that wonderful way of poking fun of people but somehow managing to do it without any nastiness. Original review below ISBN: 0140050361 Horace Appleby is a criminal, specialising in “inside […]
Have you seen 21 Jump Street? The film, not the tv show? Did you enjoy it? If so you’ll probably enjoy this one too. Schmidt and Jenko and back, but this time at college, and everything is just like the first mission, only more expensive! There’s them being undercover cops. There’s drugs. There’s buddies and […]
Fursey is a lay brother in Clonmacnoise. The only monastery in Ireland to be unafflicted by demons and other such occult presences. The power of its bells have kept all those evil powers away. But that has changed! Demons, vampires, and numerous other evils are now tempting the holy monks. None have much to fear, […]

Ross O’Carroll-Kelly started life in The Sunday Times and currently stars in The Irish Times, he is a fictional wealthy southside Dubliner. It is a satire of a certain aspect of the Celtic Tiger population. Those who speak in “Dortspeak”. But I’m guessing that means very little to any non-Irish blog readers, so I’ll keep […]
This is a supposed comedy in which a mall cop tries to get together with the “hot girl” and stop a flasher and find out who is stealing from the mall and also join the real police. I hated it. Hated and despised it. With a fiery fiery passion.
I blame he-who-blogged-once-and-then-never-again because he brought it into my home.
