Bad Neighbours (2014)

Who doesn’t love a culture clash comedy, especially when the two cultures clashing consist of lurid fluorescent shot glasses, self-made dildos and violent strobe lighting going up against punishingly high mortgages, breast pumps, spreadsheets and spreading bellies? It’s hardly original but Bad Neighbours proves to be a generally amusing frat […]

Parkland (2013)

There’s no doubt the assassination of then-President John F.Kennedy was a huge event in the American cultural, social and political spectrum.

If you want to see Nicole Kidman pee […]

The Lucky One (2012)

Nicholas Sparks has developed a reputation for writing romantic (some may call soppy) stories about impossible love.  After film adaptations of three of his novels, A Walk to Remember (2002), The Notebook (2004) and Dear John (2010), it is Scott Hicks – the director of the 1996 Academy Award-winning film Shine – who […]

The Lorax (2012)

Twelve year old Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) lives with his mother (Jenny Slate) and Grammy Norma (Betty White), in a town called ‘Thneed-Ville’ where nothing’s real – the trees and vegetation are all fake and Mr O’Hare (Rob Riggle), a tyrannical business man who rules the town with a […]

The Lorax (2012)

The work of Dr Seuss has been very much hit and miss when it comes to cinematic adaptations. Ron Howard’s version of The Grinch was almost drowned by its own sweetness while the less said about The Cat In The Hat the better. Maybe it’s just because his visual style […]
