Film Review: Tag (2018)

Tag (2018) is an action comedy film that is based on a true story of a 30-year old game of tag that was written in a Wall Street Journal article. Directed by Jeff Tomsic, this film has a star-studded cast list including Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson and Isla Fisher. The premise of this film is that Jerry (Renner) is about to retire from the 30+ year of tag to settle down in married life, but he has never been tagged in his life and it is up to the other members of the group to take this last opportunity to get him.
This is such a unique concept, and I was quite excited about this film when I saw the first trailer pop up. However, after I was disappointed with the other game-themed comedy this year (Game Night), I was also very hesitant about this. I didn't want this film to disappoint me either, especially with the cast list that is connected with this film.

I am glad to say though that this works so much better than Game Night in terms of the comedy and the action. All of…

2018 Schedule and Resolutions

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to post more often and regularly on this blog. I have enjoyed running this blog in 2017 and I want to make it a focus this year. There will be a few ways that I will be achieving this.

The first step is to put a solid schedule into place. Starting from next Monday (8th January) I will be posting a weekly recap of every new movie that I watched, along with a review for each movie and a score. To balance this out, on Thursdays (starting on the 4th of January) I will be posting a non-review blog post. This could be an analysis, discussion or anything of the above. This week's post will be my top ten movies of 2017 so stay tuned for that!

As well as this, I have created a sort of 2018 bucket list in terms of film and what I want to have achieved by the end of the year. I hope to have achieved all of the list, or at least most of it.

1. Watch all 56 animated Disney classics.
2. Watch movies from 10 different countries.
3. Go to the cinema to watch 40 unique films.
4. Watch the equivalent of 1 new film a day (365 films in total)
5. Watch at least 50 of the IMDb Top 100 Greatest Movies of All Time
6. Attend 3 midnight premiere screening
7. Attend a VIP, IMAX, 4DX and SuperScreen showing in cinemas
8. Watch every Studio Ghibli film

Whilst some of these items will be easier to tick off than others, I am hoping that I can achieve everything in this list. I have already started item number 4 (as I watched The Force Awakens on New Years Day) and I have plans on being able to achieve every item possible. If you have any recommendations on where to start for films, specifically for number 2 and 5, let me know in the comments.
