Spabbit’s 80’s Movies Lockdown Watchlist
We’re in lockdown. It sucks. No waffling: Here is my hand chosen list of 80’s movies to watch during the #lockdown! Love ’em, or Hate ’em, they’re the 80’s in a nutshell 🙂
Spabbit’s Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies!
This post covers my picks for the top Sci-Fi movies, starting with my Top 10!
In the list I talk about the ideas at the heart of the movies. Good Science Fiction always has a simple idea at the core, but one which is left to almost naturally develop into a narrative which will make you sit up and think “WTF did I just watch”.… Continue Reading

Movie Review: The Ambushers (1967)
This time around, I’m reviewing The Ambushers from 1967… Now (Not giving away too much), I wasn’t even a twinkle in my father’s eye when this was made, however in around 1984, when I was just an ahem-early-tean, this became one of my favourite movies.

Movie Review – A Dog’s Breakfast
This is the first in a series of movies reviews here @Spabbit. I’ll be going through my favourite movie collection over the next few weeks. At the top of the list, alphabetically, is A Dog’s Breakfast.
It was been written, directed by and stars David Hewlett. I first encountered David Hewlett in Stargate SG1, and later on Stargate Atlantis – he played the very annoying Rodney McKay, who’s principle occupation was being a genius level dork amongst the stars.… Continue Reading
Been watching a few of the latest movies during the last couple of weeks:
Captain America 2 – The Winter Soldier
Excellent, 10/10 for this one – a grand continuation of the storyline with seamless CGI and lots of action to boot. Never a dull moment 🙂
Watching The Goonies from 1985 for some weekend 80’s flashbacks 🙂
