About Me

Who is Vinnieh? That’s a tough question but here’s what is known.  From a very young age cinema has been one of the biggest things in his life. Snapshot_20140612_1He loves the absolute hell out of movies and would probably die if there were none in the world. He’s just the typical young man; smart, interesting, devilishly handsome(OK the last one may be a lie). He is sometimes known as Vinster or Satrap. The aim of my blog is to write about the movies I have seen and hear feedback from the many other’s who populate the blogging world. Feel free to stop by and comment on my posts.

  1. Good day sir, a Liebster Award nomination for you:


  2. This is a good reason to have a blog.

  3. Hi Vinnie, I love cinema as well! I wanted to thank you for following my blog Princess of the Light! I look forward to your blog post and film reviews. Have a beautiful day!

  4. This is perfect 😉 With a ten year old son, my wife and I don’t have the opportunity to see as many movies as we might like. Now, we can make the most of the ones we do choose to see! Looking forward to your reviews and insights 🙂

  6. I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award! You can read about it here: http://princessofthelight.wordpress.com/2013/11/02/sunshine-award/ . Thank you for making me smile! 🙂

  7. Hi vinnieh! I just nominated you for a Sunshine Award http://blackiswhiteblog.wordpress.com/2013/11/03/the-sunshine-award/ Keep up the good work 🙂

  8. Thank you Vinnieh for visiting my blog and the follow 🙂 You really seem to know everything about movies! Great!

  9. I have a theory that people who don’t like movies, well, there’s just something nuts about that 🙂 I have been a tad obsessed with it myself, since the age of eight when the first Nightmare on Elm Street interrupted my sleeping pattern for about five years (my parents had NO CLUE that I had watched it at that age). I love anything with Daniel Day Lewis and I think Meryl Streep is not human, as it is not possible to be that good. Your blog is awesome, thanks x

  50. Hey Vinnieh,
    Aaron and I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award. Find out more on http://husbandandhusband.net/2015/05/07/the-versatile-blogger-award/

  51. Vinnie Darling, I have nominated you for a Dragon’s Loyalty Award. Another one for your immaculate collection! Happy Friday :-))))

  52. Since your return I vaguely remember an onslaught of awards headed your way. Well amongst the highly deserved accolades I’m sure you picked up a Dragon’s Loyalty Award, or even two! But I’m nominating you anyway, here y’ar kid https://backtotheviewer.wordpress.com/2015/06/02/dragons-loyalty-award/ thanks for all your comments and support pal

  53. Thanks for following The Immortal Jukebox Vinnie. I hope you have found lots to entertain you and perhaps made some discoveries. If you haven’t visited for some time check it out again! Good luck with your blog. Regards Thom.

  54. I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award! – https://mibih.wordpress.com/2015/06/11/the-liebster-award-3/

  55. Wow! This is awesome. Now we have a personal movie reviewer/critic. Thanks for sharing your insight into the wonderful world of cinema.

  56. Nice blog dude, your reviews are great, looking forward for more 🙂

  57. Any friend of Eric’s is a friend of mine. Only got to your stuff now, so sorry about that, but let’s see what you got.

  58. Vinnie, I’m new to your blog. Having read a few of your posts, I must say that you have a great command of the language (I am so sick of reviewers who are grammatically and orthographically challenged), and that you offer a very thoughtful and intelligent perspective on the films you review (so many reviewers are either incoherent, hopelessly redundant in their statements, espouse the consensus, or simply state the obvious). I look forward to following your blog!

  59. Greetings! I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award! It’s here, if you want it:

  60. Vinnieh, I nominated you for a Liebster Award

  62. Aaron and I have nominated you for the Creative Blogger Award! http://husbandandhusband.net/2015/07/17/the-creative-blogger-award-2/

  63. I have a question; is there any kind of twitter account of yours that I can follow? Not that I don’t love this place, I’m just asking because twitter is pretty great as well.

  64. I don’t know if this is your thing or not, but I just tagged you for the Read This? Watch This! Tag 🙂

  65. Good to meet you my friend.

  66. Hey, bud! We nominated you for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. You were our first commentor and basically taught us by example how to jump into the blogging community to make friends and have a whole bunch of fun. We really appreciate that. So you were definitely the first person who came to mind when we were granted the award. Check it out here: http://sistergeeks.net/2015/08/21/the-dragons-loyalty-award/#more-2034. HAVE A GREAT DAY!

  67. Now on tour of your fabulous blog. Loving it so far. RB

  74. Memy's Meandering said:

    Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad I found your site too 🙂

  75. Hey, Vinnieh, Aaron and I nominated you for a scary story on
    We hope you can join in on some spooky fun : )

  76. Hey there Vinnie! Just clicking around the blogosphere and commenting on blogs that I think are fun and interesting, and you’re one of them. October is my birthday month, so consider this an invitation to my month-long birthday party. Hope to see you over at That’s So Jacob sometime!

  77. You seem like a student of movies. Have you ever considered going though one of those 100 best movies of all time and taking a closer look at some of the older more historic films? Seems like it would be right up your ally.

    • That is worth a thought, will have to do that. Thanks for your praise.

      • I went through a book like that with a friend a long time ago and we hit a lot of them. It was fun because it forced you to see some movies you otherwise might not. It might make you want movies that were famous for the cinematography not the content or for their political message or who knows what. I think the first talkie was in there. Things like that. It was totally worth doing. Some of the movies were hard to find and we had to see them at movie festivals and whatnot. It was a fun challenge.

      • I love looking through older movies and watching the evolution of technique.

  78. Really cool blog you have here. As someone who also reviews movies, it’s awesome to see this.

  79. Thanks for coming to see me at Steve Says…come again, stay a while – have a wee drink even. Happy blogging! Oh, and if you like music please check out my music blog if you get a chance…

  80. I have included you in my Blog Appreciation Post! 🙂

  81. You have a great blog too! Thanks for connecting with me. And, I have to say, yes you are “devilishly handsome!” I look forward to reading your posts.

  82. Hello vinnieh. I had a good look at your blog and it looks very impressive. You certainly like your movies and I hope to enjoy reading your LOTR reviews soon. Tim. 🙂

  83. Your blog is more than awesome.. Think I’m going to camp here permanently and read through all the reviews of movies and series that I like 😀

  84. Hello, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  85. Most interesting blogsite….. 🙂

    • Alas, I don’t have a Facebook account Shaun, I’m still sorting out my e-mail address at the minute.

      • Cool buddy, if and when. You are decent to talk with. Skype>?

        Always a voice lets you know a person better.

      • For the minute I’ll stick with my blog. Some of the technology stuff confuses me.

      • Yeah it can be too much sometimes… lol

      • Especially because of constant updates to technology.

      • I know. I bought a 62″ TV and a year later it was 4th generation. I NEED Technology because it helps me. When you live where I do, you hibernate for 3 months, so we must try to have things that make us connect to life still…
        But turn the coin around we see death, suicide, divorce and more because of Social Media. I have a family member doing almost life for words spoken on Facebook. People who been on net since 1995 or so will understand how Social media works and how to act as well as behave.. lol

  86. Your blog is well organized and on point – so I got no problem with it – I always find it good to be a bit edgy and surprise people, changing my theme every few months really helps me knock the dust off—–but your blog is your kingdom so you can do whatever you want – Wish you well and Cheers, Wayne at the Cave

  87. Vinnieh, like virtually everyone else, I love movies too. I intend to visit and check out your views on film, because I prefer reviews by folks like you over the views of any paid critic. People who blog about movies and television, have a more honest perspective. Also, I want to say a big thank you to you for the kind words, and for choosing to follow my blog over at “The Attic.” Normally, people have to pay for that kind of ringing endorsement. All I can say is; thank god I didn’t have to sacrifice any cash this time! Deciding to follow my blog usually means someone is subjecting their brain cells to great risk. So, I feel safe in lying about that this time, and telling you that that’s just a myth no one has been able to prove—yet. I haven’t had a follower suffer a full frontal lobotomy in…uh…about three weeks! So, you’re probably at no risk. Seriously Vinnieh, thanks very much for following. ;o)

  88. Thanks so much for stopping by White House Red Door because it led me to your spot. The range of movies your reviewing is fantastic! What a wonderful variety of genres and time periods; I’m really looking forward to exploring more! ~Jean

  90. What happened to Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte? Did you pull it? I got an email notification, but nothing on the link.
    Cheers, Pete.

    • Sorry about that, I had started drafting the review and instead of hitting save I accidentally hit publish. When I finish my review it will be up Pete, sorry for any confusion.

  91. 🙂 I love Movies so I’ll be back.

  92. Great blog, Vinnieh! Look forward to following your work.

  93. I think You’re pretty awesome yourself. Loving the blog ! 🙂 buffy,charmed, and witches of East End are my faves !

    Cheers…AND #JustDoIt 😀

    • I don’t use Facebook, but thanks anyway.

      • I have probably asked you 10 times now 😀

      • I’ve had problems with people being nasty on Facebook and I haven’t used it since.

      • I removed EVERY person I interact with when the Internet is on. No kids, partner, parents, brothers, sisters, cousins, aunt, uncles or best mates…So the people in my Facebook word I will never meet unless they are stupid enough to visit me 😀

        Works a treat…Hate from strangers I laugh at. But it can cause issues with the above Family/Friends when you have a brain illness as you get confused…

        But I can get why, I almost deleted it for good… lol –

    • Thanks and it is good to hear from you man. Please check out some of my reviews.

      • Just reading you blog now mate…
        Often if I am about to watch a movie I will search your blog for trailer’s etc…

        Recently I watched Legend – Superb, Southpaw I think should have 1 at least 1 Oscar for something, amazing story and the way the guy prepared for the movie is insane.

        11.26.63 = EPIC….
        James Franco plays a guy who travels back to stop the assassination of JFK. Only 6 Episodes but EPIC mate..

      • I want to see Legend as I like Tom Hardy.

      • Want to watch it tonight? If you got Android…I can ‘Make that so’ ..Let me know..Takes 2 minutes and you have Sky TV/Virgin Media and all movies in theatres and due to come out…As well as every box set for TV ever mate..

        Interested? My email is in my ‘Contact’
        at top of my blog. Trust me mate, you will like me more if I can get this to ya…

        Let me know buddy

      • Unfortunately I don’t have Android but thanks for the offer. I am somewhat behind with technology.

      • There are ways to watch anything anywhere buddy. Always a way…If you do have android in the future, let me know..Phone or tablet…Doesn’t matter..
