Crimson Peak: The Review

Guillermo is a master of the genre, and after the comedic Hellboy movies and occasionally clunky Pac Rim (as the fans call it), good to see him get his teeth into something a little more adult and full blooded.

Time Warped: How 'Rocky Horror' Got It Right 40 Years Ago

Holly Whiting | Posted 18.10.2015 | UK Universities & Education
Holly Whiting

Rocky Horror recognises and draws upon the issues of sexuality and gender that mocks society's attitudes towards these matters. Sadly for some reason it has taken 40 year for parts of society to even truly consider taking a page out of Rocky Horror's book, and begin to accept sexuality and gender fluidity.

Film Reviews : The Lobster - The Program - Censored Voices - Beasts of No Nation

Clive Botting | Posted 16.10.2015 | UK Entertainment
Clive Botting

'The Lobster,' a satire on love and romance is edgy and peppered with rich deadpan absurdist moments - Lance Armstrong, Tour de France hero bathes in ego and drugs in 'The Program,' - 'Censored Voices,' Mor Loushy's riveting and relevant documentary glances back at Israel's Six day War - 'Beasts Of No Nation' thrusts the viewer into the blood drenched world of Africa's child soldiers.

Why I'm Glad That 'Stonewall' Tanked

It is my dearest hope that this disaster will be a springboard for change, and thanks to it, maybe one day the LGBTQ+ community will get our own Selma, or 12 Years A Slave, a story that doesn't flinch away from its subject matter, that takes a stand for itself - and that truly invites everyone to stand with it.

It has been said by many actors that screen longevity has more to do with charm than talent, and if my brief encounter with Lee was anything to go by he had it in spades.

Man Up - The Review

Roger Crow | Posted 01.06.2015 | UK Entertainment
Roger Crow

Reminiscent of Dustin Hoffman's Last Chance Harvey (bittersweet London sightseeing romance-type genre) and Love Actually (hero desperately trying to find partner with community help), Man Up rests on the muscular shoulders of that reliable mistaken identity premise.

Film Reviews : Mad Max:Fury Road - The Tribe - Clouds of Sils Maria - Lambert and Stamp - The Man Who Saved The World - A Fuller Life

Clive Botting | Posted 18.05.2015 | UK Entertainment
Clive Botting

It's quite a way from Mel Gibson's 1979 Mad Max screen blast to Mad Max : Fury Road, a master blast rock n'roll shrieking, manic, 120 minutes, heat haze, dust filled theatrical journey. Great action, great cinematography, great cast, great leads, and that's not just Tom Hardy and the wonderful Charlize Theron who takes first prize, it's the vehicles as well.

Hi Hollywood. It's me. I know this is a bit awkward, but I just wanted to drop you a line to remind you that women exist. Yes, I KNOW you really like Meryl Streep, but there are other ones. No, seriously. They even speak and move around and do things. Some of them even do films.

Last night was the premiere of the short film I produced and co-directed. 'Flame' was shot over two manic days in May (with two of my models) and was finally ready to reveal to friends and colleagues at a private screening in Central London. I was a bit nervous, but the event was a big success.

The miners were probably the hardest hit during that particular 4 year term of office. And it was deeply heartening to hear a story about another oppressed group the government loathed - the LGBT community - coming to the support of others in solidarity just because it was the right thing to do.
