The Rise of the Krays
The old saying goes that you wait an age for a bus and then two come along at once. The highly anticipated Legend from writer/director Brian Helgeland, in which Tom Hardy plays both the leading roles, is not the only 2015 film to cash in on the current Krays craze that appears to be sweeping the nation, twenty five years since the Kemp brothers took...

A Little Chaos
I really wanted to like A Little Chaos. From the outset, it seems that the film has a strong team behind it. Directed by Alan Rickman, the cast includes Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, Stanley Tucci, Helen McCrory, Rupert Penry-Jones and Jennifer Ehle. Alan Rickman also has a small role as King Louis XIV.
Having been appointed by King Louis XIV... [Read more of this review]
Into the Grizzly Maze
If you go down to the woods today be sure to watch out for a bloody great big grizzly bear. His name is Bart. He’s really mad and shouts a lot. And he’s hungry. He doesn’t like humans much at all – other than the way they taste. Aggrieved at the deforestation of his natural habitat and the illegal poaching of his extended family, ol’ Bart...

Addicted to Sheep
Addicted to Sheep tells the story of the Hutchinson family, sheep farmers in the North Pennines who are trying to breed the ultimate Swaledale sheep. The film opens with a shot of farmer Tom assessing a less-than-perfect example – the wool is too frizzy, the horns too widely spaced, the black and white patterning is all wrong. You can practically... [Read more of this review]
The Battle for Warsaw
It’s no coincidence the sombre war films win the Oscars, and by the end of The Battle for Warsaw (aka Stones for the Rampart) you think it might have a chance. For the first half, however, it winds its audience up with an overly jocular tone and a particularly annoying techno riff.
We’re in the Second World War – the Nazi occupation of Poland... [Read more of this review]

Our fingers are but a blur as we excitedly fumble our way towards getting this little news story up online, but we are delighted to announce that the first teaser trailer for Anchorman 2 is out there on the web. Obviously there’s not much in the way of content (seeing as this ridiculously anticipated sequel won’t start filming later this... [Read more of this review]
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...
