DVD review – ‘Tolkien’

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

Once again, I’ve had an opportunity to revisit ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ film trilogies in the world of Middle-Earth. Whilst doing that, I’ve had a chance to revisit the 2019 biographical film ‘Tolkien’, starring Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins. My parents and I have seen this film more times on DVD and on Disney+ since seeing it for the first time at the cinema back in 2019. Continue reading

We also checked out the direct-to-video sequel to that film, ‘The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea’, which we saw on Disney+. Does the sequel match to what’s in the original film?

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

And welcome everyone to the second instalment of the ‘Time Lord Victorious’ review season of ‘Doctor Who’!

It’s time to take a look at a story featured in the official ‘Doctor Who Annual’ of 2021 called ‘The Guide to the Dark Times’, starring River Song as author Melody Malone.

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s time to talk about another Disney film I saw on Disney+ lately, and it happens to be the 2006 film ‘Eight Below’. I did see the trailer for ‘Eight Below’ on a Disney DVD one time – 2006’s ‘The Shaggy Dog’, in case you’re wondering – but I never got around to seeing it until now. What did I make of it?
