Pixie – Another for the bargain basket?

Just having watched the official trailer it’s hard to find any redeeming feature in this comedy (?) save for it being made in Ireland and presumably providing some employment. Despite a cast of well known actors it comes across as being a formula written, plastic, load of rubbish that tries too hard to be funny. Poor old Colm Meaney, the actor who’s most outstanding role to date was as Jimmy Snr. in “The Commitments“, is involved in yet another lemon. It’s currently in Irish cinemas but I’ll be waiting until it turns up in Dealz bargain basket or in my local charity shop. Provisionally, I’m awarding it three of theseĀ 


Dark Lies the Island – in cinemas from 27th September 2019

Not much to be said about this but the trailer looks promising, and almost anything with Pat Shortt is worth a gander. Now all I need is for our local cinema to reopen but I’ll probably have to make do with the DVD instead!
