New Look, New Domain and Expanded Content

The Two Hungry Blokes is moving to a different blogging service to continue our adventures. After five long years, we decided a facelift is in order and we have finally created a design that we are happy with. All new content can be found at twohungryblokes.com where we will look all things food, culture and entertainment related around the Greater Victoria area and beyond. That means the odd venture into Vancouver, Port Angeles or Seattle as our tiny finances allow. This website will remain as an archive, but if you're looking for any new content, please visit the new site.

The Five Must See Movies of July 18 - 24, 2014

The weekend is here and we all know what that means. No, it doesn't mean you can sit in front of your computer and play World of Warcraft. It means you can do something better by going out with friends and/or loved ones to your local cinema. The smell of the popcorn, the rattle of candy and the slurping of soda hasn't changed in generations.

Are any of you old enough to remember watching a film from the balcony or seeing your first film in Victoria's Coronet. Do you even remember watching movies in the Royal Theatre? If the answer is no to the aforementioned then you are most definitely not old enough. And if you don't have enough memories of going to the movies then perhaps a Saturday night out is what you've been missing.

The Five Must See Movies of July 11 - 17, 2014

Vancouver Island has alot to offer our residents and visitors when it comes to outdoor festivals, foodie events and even a nature walk or two. But for people like me who enjoy a good film over a good hike, I look to our local movie houses. With the Langford Caprice suffering an early death thanks to progress, I lean on the four remaining indie theatres in my area. Although the Roxy may have converted to live theatre, as Blue Bridge at the Roxy, they still show movies from time to time.
