Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 11 | A Christmas Gift From Bob

Christmas Day is almost upon us and the world is still caught up in the Covid-19 pandemic. So we here at The Movie Moustache decided to continue with a Christmas theme for our Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide. This time we're looking at the sequel to the much beloved 'A Street Cat Named Bob'. As always you can check out our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide in its entirety by clicking here . After leaving his publisher's Christmas party, James Bowen (Luke Treadaway) witnesses an event that causes him to look back on his and Bob's last Christmas busking on the streets of London. One that proved to be the most challenging, as James had to fight to stop animal welfare officers from taking Bob away from him. There's nothing quite like watching a heart-warming animal story, especially at Christmas. Luke Treadaway returns to his beloved role as James Bowen, the man struggling with his own demons who rescued a cat and was himself rescued. Seeing him reunited

Fatman | Average Guy Movie Review

  In a world where Santa Claus' influence is waning, a down on his luck Chris Cringle (Mel Gibson) is forced to take on a contract with the US military to make ends meet. But that's not his only problem, because one of those naughty kids (Chance Hurstfield) is none too happy about finding a lump of coal under his Christmas tree, so he puts a contract out on jolly old Saint Nick. And he's picked the perfect hitman for the job - one with a strange obsession with the Fatman. Now this is my kind of Christmas movie! Bad language, gunfights and explosions, intertwined with some good humour and a little festive cheer; what more can you ask for? The Nelms brothers have struck the right balance between fantasy and reality, and in so doing have created a world where Santa Claus' existence is at least plausible. One in which he is seen as an economic stimulus. It certainly helps that the brothers made some inspired casting choices; as strange as it may sound, Mel Gibson is the per

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 10 | Noelle

We're sticking with the festive theme for our Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide with "Noelle"; a Christmas movie that hit Disney+ in the US last year but has only recently reached European shores. And yes the lockdown may have ended here in the UK, but with the Tier system back in place, did it ever really end? Regardless, we shall be continuing our Moustache Lockdown (Not Lockdown) Streaming Survival Guide for the foreseeable future. As always you can find all of the other entries in our Streaming Survival Guide by clicking here .  After Santa Claus (Jay Brazeau) passes away, the role is passed down to his son Nick (Bill Hader). But when his training doesn't go well, it becomes clear that Nick isn't exactly ecstatic about his new job, so his sister Noelle (Anna Kendrick) suggests he take the weekend off and get away from it all. The only problem is; Nick doesn't come back. Now, with the fate of Christmas in jeopardy, and cousin Gabe's (Billy Eichner) tech

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 9 | Lego Star Wars Holiday Special

  It may only be November, but Disney is wasting no time in getting the festive ball rolling - much like everyone else. So for the latest instalment of our Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide I took a look at the 'Lego Star Wars Holiday Special' on Disney+. Don't forget to check out the rest of our guide, you can find all of the other entries by clicking here . After the defeat of the First Order, Rey and her friends are looking forward to their first Life Day celebration together. But Rey is struggling to teach Finn in the ways of the force, and a chance discovery in the 'Sacred Jedi Texts' sends her in search of a lost Jedi temple, which contains "a key to the galaxy's past". Something she hopes might aid in the training of her padawan. All the while the rest of the gang prepare for the big party. Given the notoriety of the original Star Wars Holiday Special, you'd figure even mentioning the words "holiday" and "special" in the

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 8 | Aaron Sorkin

With the latest entry in our Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide I decided to adopt a different approach. Instead of looking at one particular movie or TV show, I thought it would be fun to explore the works of one of my favourite writer/directors, and where you can find them. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the King of Dialogue... Mr Aaron Sorkin. Don't forget to check out the other entries in our Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide, you can find them all by clicking here . Let's kick things off at the beginning, with the legendary adaptation of Sorkin's stage play; A Few Good Men. Directed by Rob Reiner and based on the work of Sorkin's sister with the US Navy's JAG Corp, the movie is most famous for that intense verbal slanging match between Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson, however it's still one of the best courtroom dramas out there. Even on a rewatch it still makes for an intense and exciting watch.  Cruise's cheeky, laid back, rather un-military approach t

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 7 | Loudermilk

With the world still very much caught in the grasp of Covid-19, England is back in lockdown for at least four weeks. But it's not all doom and gloom, because with the return of lockdown comes something a little more fun... our Moustache Streaming Survival Guide is back, and this time we've got a hilarious comedy series for you. As always you can check out the other instalments in our survival guide by clicking here . Sam Loudermilk (Ron Livingston) is a recovering alcoholic living in Seattle. He may be sober, but he has a bad attitude and is generally pissed off at the entire world, something he seems to take out on almost anyone.  As a substance abuse counsellor he leads the local Alcoholics Anonymous group, and the quirky misfits who attend often bare the brunt of his negativity.  In fact the only person who he's nice to is his best friend and sponsor, Ben (Will Sasso), who has a few issues of his own to deal with. From Peter Farrelly and Bobby Mort comes a hysterical yet

Borat: Subsequent MovieFilm | Average Guy Movie Review

Fourteen years ago Borat Sagdiyev (Sacha Baron Cohen) made a film which brought great shame on his home country of Kazakhstan. After spending many years in prison, he is given the chance to put things right. He must return to the US&A with a gift for Vice President Mike Pence, one that will ingratiate Premier Nursultan Nazabayev (Dani Popescu) with Donald Trump and help to bring Kazakhstan into the big leagues. But Borat isn't travelling alone, this time his daughter Tutar (Maria Bakalova) - who has dreams of being the next Melania Trump - is along for the ride. In times like these it's reassuring to know that there is someone out there who isn't afraid to face the facts, to accept our reality and to deal with it sensibly. However, I never thought that someone would be Borat Sagdiyev. Yes, the number four journalist in all of Kazakhstan is back on another hilarious adventure, and he's here to lay it all out for us, to show us the world - by which of course I mean th
