I have a complaint. Marriage Story conned me. I went on to this not knowing the plot and not having seen the trailer. I did know some of the buzz about the film and the performances of its stars Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson. The film begins with each character re...

Elizabeth Banks has brought us a film we never knew we wanted, a film that is a reboot of a reboot of a 1970’s TV show that was arguably the first ever primetime outing for Girl Power. Banks has penned the screenplay and also directs and stars - so her heart and soul i...

I can see how, on paper, this Christmas-themed rom-com was a sure thing. Emma Thompson was co-writing and starring alongside two hot young actors, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians). The wonderful Michelle Yeoh was along for the and t...

I’ve almost forgiven Rian Johnson for killing Luke Skywalker, almost. It’s two years since Johnson killed off one of my heroes and now he’s back, writing and directing a fresh new Agatha Christie-style Whodunnit. He’s assembled a wonderful cast including an avuncular C...

MIDWAY centers on the Battle of Midway, a clash between the American fleet and the...

The Shining was the first Stephen King book I ever read. It was 1977 and I loved the book. I was too young to see Stanley Kubrick’s film of the book when it came out three years later. Up until a few weeks ago I had only ever seen it on the small screen at home but as...

After James Cameron's "The Terminator" in 1984 — which is regarded as a landmark work in science fiction as well as special effects, and put Arnold Schwarzenegger on the path to super stardom — there have been four sequels. Let's face it, they've been awful, except for...

When an alien with amazing powers crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun the Sheep goes on a mission to shepherd the intergalactic visitor home before a sinister organization can capture her. If it sounds like the plot of ET, well it is and along the way we have jok...
