Top Gun: Maverick

Can you believe it has been over 30 years since the original Top Gun film aired? It has been, the original released in 1986! This sequel, is named Top Gun: Maverick, after the main character Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell, played by Tom Cruise, and finally makes it to UK cinemas tomorrow (27th May 2022).


The film has, of course, built up a lot of anticipation, with Covid alone providing over 2-year delays to its release. But Tom Cruise is also very aware that with any sequel and especially after 36 years – that there will be much concern about whether it will live up to the hype – and he has promised it will!

Due to the delays, the film has had several trailers. The link is below for the latest trailer; it was first shown at the Super Bowl 2022 in America:

The Lost City

So, what kind of film is The Lost City? Well, some have described it as ‘Romancing the Stone-esque’. If you are too young to know what that means, it is a Rom-Com with an adventure twist.

Sandra Bullock plays a reclusive writer called Loretta Sage. Alan, played by Channing Tatum, is her book cover model. They get entangled in a kidnapping – in the jungle of all places, at the hands of Daniel Radcliffe – who plays eccentric billionaire Fairfax.


As you will see from the trailer, Channing Tatum spends a bit of time in the movie – naked! Albeit with leeches stuck to his rear-end. One can only imagine the hilarity that caused behind the scenes, with well-known comedian and joker Sandra Bullock as the co-star!

But, if the nudity wasn’t enough, it would seem that alongside Channing and Daniel – another well-known male actor turns up for a good number of scenes – none other than Brad Pitt.


Marry Me

On the 11th of February, just in time for Valentine’s weekend, a new romantic-comedy is out in cinemas across the UK, called Marry Me. The film was written based on a graphic novel by Bobby Crosby.

The Stars

Jennifer Lopez is one of the main characters; she plays Kat Valdez, who happens to be a musical superstar! She is part of a power couple. Her partner is a music supernova named Bastian. Interestingly the person who plays the role of Bastian is in his first feature film. However, he is no stranger to stardom, as well-known Columbian singer-songwriter. His real name is Juan Luis Londoño Arias, but professionally he goes by Maluma. The film features many original songs by both Jennifer Lopez and Maluma.


You can see from the trailer that the power couple have an inescapable hit; called Marry Me. The song climbs the charts and, their fans go into a frenzy. The couple agrees to marry for real in front of a 20 million audience. However, just as Kat is getting ready, social media blows up, uncovering the facts that Bastian is cheating; and with Kat’s assistant.


Bond: No Time to Die

Bond - No Time To Die

At the start of the film, James Bond is not actually in service. He is no longer working for Her Majesty’s Service, and is in fact living in the Caribbean. Jamaica is seen as Bond’s spiritual home, where his journey started.

The Story

“His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”


The making of this film has not been without its problems. In fact, filming wrapped on the very day it should have originally been showing in cinemas. Problems go back as far as August 2018 when Danny Boyle quit as Director. He was eventually replaced by Cary Joji Fukunaga, whom you might know from Maniac – a Netflix series and for his work on TV show True Detective where he scooped an Emmy.


Blithe Spirit – Sky Cinema/NOW TV

Blithe Spirit


If you were a fan of Downton Abbey, then you will recognise Dan Stevens who played Mathew Crawley. Blithe Spirit would have been released in May of 2020, but due to the pandemic it was rescheduled to Boxing Day, and then again to 15th Jan 21.  Where it will now have a simultaneous release in cinemas, on Sky Cinema and NOW TV.

Starring Roles

The film is a new depiction of a classic Noel Coward comedy. If fact, it has been put on the screen before, but the cast alone make this a worthy outing. Isla Fisher (our cover star), Leslie Mann and Dame Judi Dench to name a few.

Blithe Spirit Synopsis

Dan Stevens plays Charles Condomine, he is somewhat of a playboy with a career as a crime novelist. However, he starts to struggle under a looming deadline, and a severe case of writers’ block. His second wife, Ruth, played by Isla Fisher has designs on heading to Hollywood, and as such she wants to keep him focussed and writing.

Charles’ search for inspiration continues, and in a desperate attempt to get the writing juices flowing, he invites a medium to his home to perform a séance. The medium is called Madame Arcati and is played by none other than Dame Judi Dench. In fact, Dench is no stranger to Noel Coward roles, but this is her first time playing the medium.



Rebecca - Netflix

If you don’t feel quite ready to go back to the cinema yet, then you’ll be glad to know Netflix is bringing brand new movies to the small screen.

Rebecca has had several screen adaptations; this time around Netflix and Armie Hammer brings the classic Daphne du Maurier’s gothic thriller novel to life.

Did you do Veganuary (going vegan for January)? Or perhaps you tried Dry January (going alcohol free for the month)? Taking drastic action on the diet, drink or health front in short bursts has been growing in popularity. With many being able to make their will-power last the duration, knowing the fixed period will come to an end.

But, what do you do with your health for the rest of the year?

Well, Dr Rangan Chatterjee, has a new book out called Feel Better In 5 (Penguin Life). That just might be the answer…

You might know Dr Chatterjee from the BBC programme Doctor In The House and podcast Feel Better Live More. He recognises that making positive health, mind and body changes is incredibly difficult and that sticking with it, and maintaining the required will-power and motivation can be tough.


Christmas Movie Night!

Christmas Movie Night

I don’t know about you, but I always enjoy a trip to the movies during the festive season. In the United States Christmas Day is the busiest day of the year for cinemas. Unfortunately, you are unlikely to find a movie theatre open here! However, we make up for it on Boxing Day, when many flock to the cinema to see the latest blockbusters. Here’s a few films you might enjoy for your Christmas Movie Night.

Two Christmas Movies

Cats – 20th Dec

Last Christmas

Last Christmas? I know what you are thinking, it’s only November? So, why am I talking about a Christmas film? Well, this movie does have a Christmas back-drop, but really it is a fun-loving, light-hearted British rom-com, that just happens to be out in UK cinemas from the 15th November 2019.

The Cast

Emma Thompson features in the film, but she is also one of the writers. In fact, the film was inspired by a George Michael song ‘Last Christmas’. George Michael was involved in the early stages of the film, but sadly he passed away before the project really got off the ground.
