Written, directed and produced by Clark, White Reindeer tells the story of Suzanne Barrington, an estate agent living in Washington with her husband. As Christmas is approaching,... [Read more of this review]
There’s Something About Susan
When Susan Boyle peacocked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage in 2009 and proclaimed herself the next Elaine Paige, the nation sneered. And when the West Lothian lass suggestively informed Simon Cowell that such ambition was just ‘one side of her’, the nation recoiled. But when the clamour subsided and she sang the first euphonious notes of... [Read more of this review]
Tony Benn: Will and Testament
It’s an unenviable task attempting to portray the life of a man so scrutinised, so criticised and so treasured, as was the former Labour MP, Mr Tony Benn, that Skip Kite’s eloquent and sensitive epitaph doesn’t attempt to; he leaves the honour to man himself. During his time on the political stage, Wedgie Benn; staunch socialist, dogged democratic,... [Read more of this review]

Few movies today can muster as much as a chuckle from today’s demanding audiences. And even less of those films are about suicide – successful or attempted. But The Skeleton Twins manages to be equal parts hilarious and heartwarming and is one of the year’s most pleasant surprises.

We absolutely can’t wait to see Ted. It’s the story of Johnny (Mark Wahlberg) a regular guy who falls in love with a girl (Mila Kunis). The thing is, he’s constantly dogged by a rather special friend – a hard-drinking, pot-smoking teddy bear that came to life as a result of a childhood wish and just won’t leave.
It’s... [Read more of this review]
The Expendables 2 Full Trailer
Can you say “KABOOOOOM!!!”? Introduced by Sly himself (who seems to have some trouble getting the name of his movie right), it’s big it’s loud, it’s got massive explosions, it’s got more testosterone than you can waggle a bicep at, it’s got Jason Statham delivering some great one-liners (“I now pronounce...
