'Steve Jobs' and 'The Lady in the Van' - Reviews

Sadly it speaks volumes that Jobs saving a piece of digital art from his daughter after years of estrangement feels strangely empty. It's hard to emote over something saved to a hard drive rather than hand crafted.

Theatre's Cue on the Tourism Stage

Sandie Dawe | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Sandie Dawe

Theatre is not unfamiliar with playing understudy to football or shopping as a popular activity for tourists, but its appeal and contribution is strong regardless... More of our holiday visitors from overseas are going to the theatre, musicals, the opera or ballet (2.8 million) than to a live sporting event (1.3 million) across Britain.

Let's Nail That Tory NHS Lie

Andrew Gwynne | Posted 10.09.2013 | UK Politics
Andrew Gwynne

The NHS is not broken or clapped out, but nor am I naïve enough to think that it is it perfect everywhere. The real challenge is to drive excellence through the NHS, and that's what Government frankly should be seeking to achieve. Where local NHS services are substandard or failing, that is a betrayal of all the NHS stands for and I know this from my own local experience.

Apocalyptic Appeal

Tom Ward | Posted 10.08.2013 | UK Entertainment
Tom Ward

The truth, it would appear, is that we, as humans are fascinated by an end of days scenario. We want to see our world, free from the constraints of everyday life (see London in 28 Days Later, or Day of the Triffids) and we want to know how we will measure up in a new, savage environment, free of repercussions.

Trance - Review

Kieran Turner-Dave | Posted 28.05.2013 | UK Entertainment
Kieran Turner-Dave

Although the film is a little untamed and features some baffling choices in terms of story, there is a lot within Trance to enjoy. Danny Boyle's stylish direction helps to smooth over the mistakes within the screenplay and results in a gripping, interesting and hypnotic crime movie that for the most part keeps the audience guessing.

Trance (Review)

Alice Charles | Posted 29.05.2013 | UK Entertainment
Alice Charles

Some reviewers have described this movie as sexy. I'd argue that Trance is the opposite of sex. It is charmless and wit-free. You don't believe in any of the central relationships and in place in character development we have pointless plot twists. And I would like someone to explain to me why it's okay to show a naked woman with a shaved vagina on the big screen but you can't show a penis? What's that about?

Film Review: Trance

Jack Pelling | Posted 28.05.2013 | UK Entertainment
Jack Pelling

This mind-bending, psychological-thriller is a far cry from sky-diving monarchs and jitterbugging nurses, but Boyle hasn't completly reined in his penchant for spectacle.
