Full Skyfall Trailer

Wow. Wow wow wow WOW. A full trailer for new James Bond film Skyfall has been released and I’m absolutely blown away.

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

This entry is part 4 of 8 in the series Star Wars

5 movies I can’t wait to see… but will just have to!

This summer hasn’t exactly been a classic. Not in terms of the shocking weather and certainly not when you look at what’s been on at the cinema. Harry Potter was the first brilliant blockbuster of the year…
