Welcome to this blog of my film reviews. Some have been drafted carefully on paper, others I have sat and typed. I'm going to make it clear right now that I don't expect you to agree with my (re)views, or to like my style of writing. However, I want my views to be just out there and open, as a person who wishes to express himself from deep within. Feel free to comment and debate with me, but I do ask that you are civil and not harsh, as any comments which are basically swear words and insults will automatically be deleted. Also any text that is in orange (and often bold) is a Hyperlink to either a source, or a previous post for background reference.

A new Box Office Record has been set
The weekend just finished saw the worldwide box office set a new record as Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011) surpassed the $500 million mark, replacing Rio (2011) as the 10th highest grossing film of 2011, and in doing so made 2011 the first year in cinematic history where the 10 highest grossers each surpassed the half-billion dollars mark, after 2010 only just failed to as How to Train Your Dragon (2010) missed the half-billion mark by just over $5 million.
