The Zero Theorem (2014)

The Zero Theorem (2014)
It should be a requirement that in all screenings of Terry Gilliam’s movies, the film in question should be shown two or three times in succession. Brazil, Twelve Monkeys, and now The Zero Theorem: all beg an immediate re-watch to try and catch-up on all things you missed in round one. Gilliam...

Resurrected (1989)

Resurrected (1989)
Based on quite an extraordinary true story (just google “Philip Williams Falklands” to find out more), Resurrected is far from a perfect film but it’s a quietly powerful one and launched the film careers of both Paul Greengrass and David Thewlis, with both having been involved in numerous TV projects...

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part One (2010)

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part One (2010)
The final adventure for Mr. Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger is so jam-packed with story strands to be tied up, character arcs to be completed and thrills to be had that it has to be spread over two whole movies. And that still may not be enough room to fit in everything that fans […]
