Dirty Grandpa: Average Guy Movie Review

Before we start I don't want to hear a load of crap about how this will never live up to De Niro's classics. This is not a review of Robert De Niro or his career, it's a review of his latest film Dirty Grandpa.

The film is about a widower (De Niro) who convinces his grandson (Efron) to drive him to Florida in an attempt to regain his youth (have sex) and show his grandson how to have fun. De Niro and Efron work well as grandfather and grandson, watching De Niro misbehave and humiliate Efron is hilarious. Watch out for Efron doing the Macarena! It's no Oscar winner but it is a fun film about remembering to enjoy life and not to let others make your choices for you! That said, if you watch Dirty Grandpa expecting Oscar material you're clearly an idiot...watch the trailer. The goal of this movie is to make people laugh, and maybe cringe. Both of which this movie achieves. 


Told you you'd cringe!

I went to the cinema expecting to laugh and that's exactly what I did. They haven't tried to make this movie more than it is; a very funny comedy about life, family, growing old and remembering to have fun along the way. If you want to watch a movie that isn't too serious and will make you laugh this is definitely a movie for you. My one complaint is that Danny Glover is only in one scene.

If this review helped or you liked the film please leave a comment and share this on Facebook and Twitter.

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!


Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below:

Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible.


From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. Gr…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 6 | Home Before Dark

We're back on Apple TV+ this week, checking out one of Apple's new TV shows: Home Before Dark.

Ever since her Dad took her into the newsroom where he works, nine year old Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince) has been fascinated with journalism. So fascinated in fact, that she started her own newspaper - The Magic Hour Chronicle. But when Matthew Lisko (Jim Sturgess) - Hilde's Father - loses his job, the family is forced to move to Matthew's home town of Erie Harbor, a place he hasn't been back to in many years. There, a chance encounter leads Hilde to look into a thirty year cold case, one that involved the murder of a teenage boy and tore the town apart. Could that be the reason why Hilde's Dad left and never came back?




I will admit that when my fiancé and I were checking out the new content available on Apple TV+ (we had just finished watching the availab…
