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 😁


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 😉

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 🙌


Skylines (2020)
Wasn’t expecting too much from this action sci-fi but was pleasantly surprised. I found myself really enjoying this movie , just a fun sci-fi and had some great actors involved , a shout out to Alexander Siddig and Rhonda Mitra . So pop open the popcorn and enjoy ?



Well this is a sci fi drama which I thought was well made and the actors were all wonderful !
It’s storyline definitely kept me interested and the plot was quite thought provoking. So it’s definitely on my list as a movie I recommend ?



Great London gangster movie , awesome cast and if you were a fan of Harry Brown this would definitely be right up your street !!!



Did you ever watch The shining (1980) and think great movie but I have questions??? I’m confused what am I missing !! Well Doctor Sleep answers all those unanswered questions . Beautifully done and the story line is great , I highly recommend this movie



A fun British vampire movie, with a stellar cast . It definitely had its moments and certainly brought a smile to my face … I really can’t pick one particular actor , I thought they were all great . If your a fan of either vampires or comedy this should definitely be on your viewing list … I found it to be a fun film


This is a great little sci fi movie that I think went under the radar, I discovered it by chance and was definitely impressed.

Kellan Lutz was very cool ( took me quite awhile to realise he was the guy from Twilight , I was totally impressed by him ) and the rest of the cast were awesome. So if your a sci fi fan definitely give this a go … would love to see a follow up movie!



A found footage movie , there are plenty of movies about said ranch ! But this is one of my favourite ones , actors are all good and definitely worth a watch . If you like sci fi / horror then I would recommend this!!

Just have the popcorn at the ready! ?


I found this a magnificent sci fi movie !! Avoid comparing it to other movies and enjoy it for what it is, a great enjoyable movie!!!

Vincent Cassel deserves a special mention , great performance and T. j Miller brought some light relief to the movie in the most tense of moments. All the cast were good and I would certainly recommend

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

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 😉
