Well draw closer my young Padawans 😁 wow if your a sucker for the zombie flick, may I draw your attention to this little gem!
It’s a long movie at 2h 28m … but what bliss , I really did enjoy this movie. By now you know I never give the plot away . . Just take my word on faith, definitely work this movie into your busy schedules. A shout out to Dave Bautista and Tig Notaro wonderful performances 😁
Army of the dead (2021) horror/action
The New Mutants (2020) horror/ fantasy
This movie I found easy going and a fun watch with a great cast. Only after I watched it, did I read some reviews!!! Wow such negativity , have a little faith guys 😁 draw the curtains, get comfy and have popcorn to hand and enjoy this movie.
Comedy/ horror is a wonderful vampire movie of the 80’s and in my humble opinion way cooler vampires than any others from the big screen ( you know who I’m talking about )
Great soundtrack and Kiefer Sutherland is beautiful in this movie and watch out for the Frog brothers they will make you smile !!!
Definitely a 80s movie worth watching 😁
Action / sci fi this is definitely one of my favourites, will definitely keep you entertained and goes at a fast pace and some fun action !! Guy Pearce is always a class act and he’s great in this film . There’s actually a wonderful cast and a special shout out for Joe Gilgun , no one does crazy like him 😁
So sci fi and straight up action fans will love this!!
Horror/ thriller with a gothic vibe , very atmospheric film . Full of twists and turns and Bill Nighy is wonderful in fact all the cast was on top form . So I have no hesitation recommending this film , so close the curtains, get comfortable and enjoy 😉
Did you know? DVD Locker stock this movie too, you never know what your going to get

Mortal Kombat (2021) – Flawless Victory or Fatality?
Ah…Mortal Kombat. One of my favorite fighting games. I’ve owned or played pretty much every version of the game officially released and available…I’m just a *slight* fan. I’ve read the comics, watched the cartoons, watched the live-action series and web shows.
Then…there’s the movies.
In 1995, Mortal Kombat was released. While it wasn’t exactly the greatest movie ever released it was certainly one of the better video game movies released at the time…but it needed to be better. The sequel was horrible and then it seemed to fade away. No more movies it seemed.
Until now. We have a new Mortal Kombat movie, a new vision. Let’s check it out. 👇
Cole Young, an MMA fighter who is a human punching bag and takes beatings in the ring for money. Unbeknownst to Young, he’s a man with a special heritage.
Being hunted by mystical ninja Sub-zero and in fear for the safety of his family, Cole looks for Sonya Blade and they head to the temple of Elder God Raiden. Raiden grants them and others that have a special mark sanctuary as they train for the highest stakes tournament of their lives.
Will Young be able to unlock his powers and not only save his family but Earthrealm as well?
The hype train for this movie has been running for a while, there have been fans clamoring for this, for a better movie than the ones released in the 90s (although I have to confess I actually like the first one a lot!). Does this movie live up to the hype? Is this the flawless victory that fans have been waiting for, or is it a fatality for the franchise?
Well….kinda both really.
They took their shot…and just missed the mark.
The games themselves have their own lore that really needs to be followed, and it’s kind of been skirted around here (I’m not going into details here, I’m going to do my best to avoid spoilers for people who have not seen this movie and want to), and there are things that are just not right. Sure they have the blood feud between Scorpion and Sub-Zero, they have Goro being a thug, and Shang Tsung taking souls. But you had characters getting items in ways that are not in line with game lore, and also the way characters get their abilities seemed a little off.
This movie was also the first thing to make me DISLIKE Sub-Zero. I’ve always been a fan of the chilled-out Kombatant in blue, but this incarnation is…well, just wrong. It does not feel right the kind of character he is in the movie.
This aside, I actually did like the movie. The fights were great, there was some great humor and despite its flaws, it was better than its predecessors….the problem is that there was way too much CGI in this movie (ironically making it feel TOO MUCH like a video game) whereas using more practical effects in this movie would have given this the potential to be mind-blowing.
Throughout the movie, there are plenty of easter eggs for the fans to check out, and the soundtrack does a rather nice nod back to The Immortals theme to the 1995 movie, which is cool. When this comes out on Blu-Ray, I’ll have to go through all the easter eggs and references in the movie…it should be fun!
So…the new Mortal Kombat movie….a fun watch, a nice bit of gore…but don’t expect pure awesome. Here’s to a sequel though, I do genuinely think it deserves one.
Mortal Kombat (2021) is rated 15 certificate, and is currently out in cinemas!
Thanks for reading 🙌
The Irishman (2019) a crime thriller starting in the 1950s . I’m sure most have watched this wonderful movie , it’s definitely a firm favourite of mine . There’s way to many amazing actors to mention but I must say Joe Pesci as Russell Bufalino definitely made his presence felt with just a mere look or a brief smile , you paid attention !! Yes it’s a long film , but in my humble opinion it’s not a minute too long .. so for those of you who haven’t seen it … please do
Brawl in cell block 99 … ( 2017) wow definitely a brutal movie and what a storyline !!!
I’m not a fan of violent movies but this had a great story line … Vince Vaughn was amazing as Bradley Thomas … what an actor I’m used to him portraying the fumbling nice guy , think again in this he’s definitely the hard guy .. blown away by his acting . A prison thriller with a twist …. a movie full of great actors , Don Johnson is fun to watch , in fact all the actors were on point . Want to watch a gritty violent movie with a twist?? Then I definitely recommend this wonderful movie
Thanks for reading.. Stay safe
Borderlands (2013) is definitely one of my favourite scary movies . A group are sent to a church to investigate a miracle from the Vatican. It’s a movie that grabs you early on , the unease building throughout the movie . Visually very cool . No spoilers from me but if your a fan of horror / supernatural this is definitely worth a watch. Gordon Kennedy / Deacon is absolutely awesome to watch . In fact all the actors are great . This isn’t a big budget movie and may of gone unnoticed… wake up call guys this movie is definitely worth watching..
Did you know? You could get this movie from DVD Locker as part of our subscription service.. want to know more? Find out here
Thanks for reading, happy watching
Fanboys (2009) is my go to movie to watch and guaranteed to make me smile . It’s definitely one of my feel good movie favourites. It’s a definite must watch for Star Wars fans and keep your eyes peeled for the cameos . So the story is based on a group of hard core fans of Star Wars and their raid on sky Walker ranch . I love the references to Star Trek too and being a fan of both , it certainly made me giggle , it’s a movie that pokes fun at fandom in a kind way and anyone whose dabbled in the convention scene will have definitely met characters like this ? I loved Dan Fogler aka Hutch… his character was a hoot , made me laugh … in fact all the actors/ characters were wonderful .
I’m not going to give away the story lines … just take my word for it …. it’s definitely worth a watch , there’s a nerd in every one of us…
As the saying goes out with the old in the NEW come and see our new website for yourself we’d love your feedback and thoughts 🙂

You know what goes great with a Movie? Some good old treats! Oh yes why not upgrade your Movie Night and make it extra special..
We at DVDLocker are passionate about Movies, our company made by Movie Lovers for Movie Lovers. We’ve had a discussion of our staff members favourite treats and snacks whilst watching a Movie, of course our results were very different but we’d love to share our Top 10 Treats that seemed to have come out on top !
- Number 1 — Popcorn – A true classic for any movie out there! No wonder why the cinemas use this past time.. And before you ask we prefer salted Y-U-M-M-Y!!
- Number 2 — Haribos – The modern day favourite that’s great for adults too! A lot of our staff seemed to agree that these sweets are to good NOT to miss! Our favourite: the eggs mmmmmm!
- Number 3 — Cucumber & Humus – This one came in a not to shabby third place! OK so a lot of staff are vegan and vegetarians, but if your looking for a refreshing, healthy and guilt free snack then this is the one for you.
- Number 4 — Chocolate Buttons – Now we are talking, I personally love these (no guessing which I opted for) specially the large buttons perfect for those melt in your mouth kind of moments, pure chocolate heaven!
- Number 5 — Pringles – This causes a slight divide with us in DVDLocker HQ as we thought the “crunch” noise would distract you from the movie! However it’s still ended up in spot number 5 on our list, after all once you pop… Our favourite flavour I hear you ask – Sour cream & Chive.
- Number 6 — Olives – Again we are back on the healthy route, olives are a great all rounder that’s not only good for you but soo nice too, so why not switch up your treats for something different..
- Number 7 — Cheese & Crackers – If you wanted to have a slightly more up market treat whilst your settling down to a great movie, then you can’t go wrong good ol’ cheese and crackers! Even if you don’t like cheese crackers on their own with some butter are devine..
- Number 8 — Pretzels – Popular by most, Pretzels are a great appetiser that’s perfect for to enhance your viewing experience. The saltiness of the pretzels will make you want more and more just don’t forget to have a drink handy!
- Number 9 — Nachos & Cheese – If your looking to upgrade your treats then Nachos and Cheese is a serious contender! A perfect yet naughty treat that will keep you coming back for more and more.. just remember to keep your eyes on the screen or at least pause so you don’t miss out any of the movie 😉
- Number 10 — Nuts – Finally that grabbed the number 10 spot was nuts! Whether you like peanuts, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts or pecans they are a great and simple snack that is healthier and of course satisfying.
So there you have it our very own Top 10 Treats to accompany your Movie Night! – Hopefully we’ve given you some ideas and inspiration for your next Movie Night.
Why not give some of our Treats a go next time and see what you think, it’s always good to switch it up. Change is good.

‘More than Movies’
As we explained in our previous post here
We have started to add Movie Reviews to this website, so you can get the Highs, The Lows about some of DVDLocker’s film choices, we are starting the theme off with HORROR we have over 23,000 titles for you to choose from so this is just 1 of them, we have rated this title 4.1/5 stars see the full review below. Before we go ahead to the review if you are looking for a new, value for money Film service (That you keep the DVDs and Blurays we send) then visit our website here and join the many happy customers we currently serve.
‘Don’t say it, don’t think it. Don’t say it, don’t think it. Don’t say it, don’t think it’ – These are the words the characters in this Horror style film say when they are trying to See the ‘Bye Bye Man’ the story is three college students move into an old house off campus, they unwittingly unleash a supernatural entity known as The Bye Bye Man, who comes to prey upon them once they discover his name. The friends must try to save each other, all the while keeping The Bye Bye Man’s existence a secret to save others from the same deadly fate. This film is pretty good, and full of uneasy moments and some jumpy parts too, if you love a good horror film then this is perfectly good viewing for your Saturday night in!
In the late 1960s, a man mysteriously murders all those closest to him after he finds that they have merely uttered the name of a murderous entity. In the present day, several millennials move into this house, which is just off campus, and begin to experience mysterious events that freak them out. They too become aware of the existence of ‘the Bye Bye Man’, and learn if they even think or say his name, they will be inviting death upon themselves.
If you like films such as Candyman or Bogeyman then you will love this title.
We rate this film quite highly, as from the very start to finish you are encapsulated in the unknown and can feel the horror and the tension right from the very start, this film is very fast paced with lots of different storylines that become one, this film is similar to the likes of Candyman or similar, by summoning death simply by saying the name ‘The Bye Bye Man’ It’s simple to follow, and there are plenty of scares. It’s not too complicated so it doesn’t get tangled up in itself.
This film is fairly low budget in this day and age it did well. The acting was good, the plot was intense and the twists were brilliant.If they had a higher budget I’m sure they could have done even better, and I’m sure a sequel would do well.
If you are looking for a full on Bloody and Gory movie then this wouldn’t be for you, however if you are looking for a Scary, Fast paced and Physiological film then this really could provide you with a great standard Horror Film alternative.
Did you know? – This film as well as many others are available at DVDLocker, simply click here to join us today and get the best movies sent directly to your home, that you keep each and every month, we are also rated 4.9/5 stars on Yell, give us a try today you won’t be disappointed!
