The dust has begun to settle on No Time To Die now, but don’t worry – this isn’t anything to do with the film and there are no spoilers in this Quick Read.Continue reading “Hey Look, A New (Tenuous) James Bond Theory…”

“I’m your retainer. I don’t mean you no disrespect. Sorry, I don’t want to put too many holes in you.”
First thing’s first, I wasn’t sure what to call this decade, so teenies it is. If anyone has a better suggestion, I’ll use it for the reader recommendations.
If you been following By The Decade for the last few weeks, you know how this works – they don’t necessarily have to be the best films of the decade, or even your favourites, just films that mean something to you.
You can catch up from the 1930s to the 2000s right here, and I’ll add this week’s reader recommendations over the weekend.
Until then, here are my five selections from the 2010s…Continue reading “By The Decade: 5 From The… Teenies?”
After a couple of bumper weeks for By The Decade (who knew the readers of film blogs would have such great affection for movies of the 1980s and 1990s?!), we’ve arrived at the turn of the 21st Century.
To keep things a little neater, I’ve chosen five films from the 2000s, and as always they’re not the best films of the decade, but films I enjoyed or have a connection with.Continue reading “By The Decade: 5 From The Noughties”
Here we go with another By The Decade post to help broaden my cinematic horizons and welcome your recommendations from a specific era – the last two weeks especially have thrown out some really great suggestions, and I think this one will be great too.
Following the previous 3 From The 30s, 4 From The 40s, 5 From The 50s, 6 From The 60s, 7 From The 70s and 8 From The 80s posts, we’ve had brilliant suggestions from readers for their favourite films from the 1930s, the 1940s, the 1950s, the 1960s, the 1970s, and the 1980s.
I’ll be honest, the choices I’ve made this week are not my favourite films from that decade, they’re certainly not the best films of the decade, and I’m well aware they’re incredibly mainstream and obvious.
I guess that’s a disclaimer of sorts, but this isn’t a judgemental place, so feel free to shout up with some of your top films from the 1990s, whether you feel they’re respected or not!Continue reading “By The Decade: 9 From The Nineties”
I mentioned in my original piece for this week’s By The Decade that I struggled to whittle down my choices to just seven, and from the replies on Twitter, I’m really glad to see I wasn’t the only one!
There’s been a really outstanding response to #7FromThe70s, with some really great suggestions from a great cinematic decade, and from a few newcomers too, which is always nice.
Thanks so much to everyone who offered up their favourite films from the seventies, and the full list is below…Continue reading “By The Decade: Your Favourite 70s Films”
Another week, another By The Decade post to help expand my cinematic horizons and discover your recommendations from eras I might not be that familiar with.
Following the previous 3 From The 30s, 4 From The 40s and 5 From The 50s posts, and the brilliant suggestions from readers for their favourite films from the 1930s, the 1940s and the 1950s, there are loads of great suggestions for you to check out too in the By The Decades section.
As always, I’ll post an updated piece with reader recommendations later, but for now here are six of my favourites from the swinging sixties…Continue reading “By The Decade: Six Great Films From The Sixties”
When I posted the Quick Read about ‘give it a go films’ (by the way, if anyone can come up with a better name for them than that, I’m all ears), I expected a few great recommendations.
As always, you wonderful people haven’t let me down, so here are the films you suggested to get people to dip their toes into genres they might not otherwise bother with.Continue reading “Reaction: Your ‘Give It A Go’ Films”
Sometimes, particularly with long-running franchises, it can become difficult to distinguish one entry from another, and they all just sort of mush together into a cinematic soup or stew.
That’s not to say any one entry is especially bad (though that may often be the case), and it’s not even solely down to big name franchises, sometimes just styles and genres of films.
Without further ado then, here are some movie soups that I love, but still get mixed up…Continue reading “Movie soups and stews”
