Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Film Review

★ This new release stars Jim Carrey, James Marsden, Ben Schwartz and Tika Sumpter. The story is the same cookie-cutter plot from our childhood gaming adventures, with a dull sense of humour and goofy animations. With such a great cast, especially Carrey who is a great comic, I was expecting a fun and exciting film.… Continue reading Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Film Review

Facing the station, the coffee shop is on the left on a bit of a slant which didn't made it easy to get… Continue reading 200 Degrees Cafe Colmore Row Birmingham

★★★★ PRAZA restaurant is based on Hagley Road in Birmingham. Although tucked away from the roadside, it is easy to locate for potential customers to see.

Pinocchio (2020) – Film Review

★ We all grew up with the charming, but naughty wooden puppet of the 40s, Pinocchio. Disney’s version featured a few surreal elements, such as a growing nose when the puppet lied, or a child’s dreamland where rules did not exist—that is until the naughtiest children are turned into donkeys. Archimedes’ telling of Pinocchio focuses… Continue reading Pinocchio (2020) – Film Review
