Film Review

Their Finest (2016)

The latest adaptation by Danish director Lone Scherfig, Their Finest is set in 1940s London during the Second World War. In order to boost morale, the British Ministry hires Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) as a screenwriter to give their propaganda films a feminine touch.  Her quick wit and talent doesn’t […]

TIFF 2016 – The Limehouse Golem (2016)

To read popular fiction, or watch television, or films, or any other art form really, you’d think Victorian London was a land of endless murder. While the chances of falling prey to an unfortunate stabbing were certainly higher, contemporary culture revels in it far past the point of accuracy. A […]

About Time (2013)

Second chances Richard Curtis writes his own screenplays, and well he might, since he got a First in English at Oxford. Oxford notwithstanding, he is a pop writer, a Brit from New Zealand originally who turns out English equivalents of Nora Ephron. And no harm in that. If Notting Hill wasn’t so […]

Arthur Christmas (2011)

I thoroughly enjoyed this festive treat from Aardman animation when it was out in cinemas last year and I’m pleased to see it stands up to a repeat viewing. There’s been a definite lack of quality Christmas films in recent years and this heart-warming caper is a much needed shot […]

Wrath of the Titans Premiere

last night the stars of Wrath of the Titans swapped their swords and sandals for suits and shades to hit the red carpet for the London premiere. The venue for the event says a lot about the differences between the first film & this sequel. They picked the BFI IMAX […]

Wrath of the Titans (2012)

Much like the etymologically derived Titanic, this film started with a lot of promise but didn’t end well. The early scenes in which our demigod, Perseus (Sam Worthington), has his idyllic fishing village lifestyle cruelly disrupted by a fire-breathing, two-headed dog with dragon wings (think cheap Chinese meal nightmare) are […]

Love Actually (2003)

Richard Curtis is, you could easily say, quite a giant figure in the modern British film and entertainment industry. His comic writing has provided audiences with a number of classic moments and when he created Four Weddings & A Funeral he managed to, in a way, give us the ultimate […]
