M+F Reviews Week 9 Update

After last weeks update, this week has been just as hectic for us.  Despite this we have managed to review five films.  On the networking side of things we have had some ongoing discussions with a few sites and we are hoping to have some excellent news for you in the coming week.  If you saw our update last week you will know that we  were running our first competition.  It ended last Thursday and we would like to thank everyone who took part and say congratulations to the winners, who have now been notified. Here, in alphabetical order are last weeks reviews:

Highest M+F Rating: Captain America: The Winter Soldier - 9/10
Featured Film: Fire in the Blood

Again, this week has seen a wide range of films watched and  reviewed.  "How to Survive a Plague" (2012) is an excellent documentary that is both powerful and inspirational.  You are likely to not have heard of it but it is definitely worth watching.  We were also lucky enough to attend a regional premiere of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (2014) - a whole week before its general cinema release in the United Kingdom.  Our review is spoiler free! 

We are always making a few updates to the site. Contact pages are now fully updated to incorporate our Facebook pages and account.  You can also see a new tab, called "What's your favourite..." This is a new Feature we are running. You will be able to find movie related opinion polls to take part in which should be fun!

To be sure not to miss out on any of great reviews, news and competitions make sure you adds us via the social media links that can be found on the site. We have some great movies to review this week including Martin Scorsese's "Casino" (1995).
