Home of The Cheap-Arse Film Review and, hopefully, more.




Don’t call it a comeback. I’ve been here for years.


I felt inspired today and put this together. This is an idea I’ve had for a while, a show looking exclusively at British nostalgia and pop culture. Hopefully you won’t have to wait too long for the full thing.

Feel free to like, Reblog, and whatever else goes on around here.

(The Cheap-Arse Film Review. Episode sixteen- CLOVERFIELD.)

I remember there was a point in my life when I was OBSESSED with this movie, or rather the build-up to it. I was even the moderator of a Cloverfield Facebook Group, and that was back when Facebook was still just another website. I knew I’d get around to reviewing this at some point. One of my personal favourite episodes.

(The Cheap-Arse Film Review. Episode fifteen- THE DESCENT.)

The first part of a block of four reviews looking at movies Empire Magazine has given five-star reviews to. Up first, a tale of possible madness, infidelity and cannibalistic albino cavemen. It’s not a comedy.

(The Cheap-Arse Film Review. Episode fourteen- ROCKY BALBOA.)

As someone who genuinely DOES love the Rocky movies as much as he says he does (except for the fifth one, obviously), it’s actually shameful for me to admit that I hadn’t seen this before I decided to review it. I think I was really worried I wouldn’t like it. I get like that sometimes. I’m in two minds about seeing the new Spider-Man film because of this.

(The Cheap-Arse Film Review. Episode thirteen- KING RALPH.)

My dad loves this movie. He was very sad when he found out I didn’t.

(The Cheap-Arse Film Review’s First Year-And-A-Bit Anniversary- HOT FUZZ.)

I think I’m going to make it so I review a Simon Pegg movie every year as long as I do this. My first episode to hit over 1000 views, so I’m understandably fond of it. Also my dad’s favourite review of mine.

Also, it’s a “Year-And-A-Bit” because this went up late. Time-keeping has never been my strongest point. My Christmas Special went up on January 6th, for example.

(The Cheap-Arse Film Review’s First Christmas Special.)

I wanted to do something a bit out-of-the-box for my Christmas Special, and at some point, I talked myself into making what pretty much amounts to a movie with reviews in it. I almost started choking when I saw the whole thing came to over 90 minutes long. Thank fuck I only have to do this once-a-year, is all I’m saying.

Also, a special thanks to my friends Julia, Matt, Jodie, Laura, Danny and Mark for going along with my madness and agreeing to appear in this. You were all amazing.
