Crisps and dips! It’s Retro Movie Rundown O’Clock!

So with an entire weekend of classic movie goodness topped with some more modern releases icing, we find ourselves once again stashing up on all the essentials needed to complete our movie mission; milk in the fridge (for cereal and tea making abilities), big soft duvet, chocolate for obvious reasons and of course a whoooooole bunch of time and quiet….which is usually where things fall apart. With all these things in place, it’s time to draw the curtains, unplug the phone (is that still a thing?) and dive into the weekends movies! See you there.

Have a happy retro weekend!
