9 Driving Films That Inspire Us Go On The Road

The Huffington Post UK | Shihab S Joi | Posted 22.10.2014 | UK Entertainment

As escapism goes, there’s nothing quite like a road trip movie. They not only transport us somewhere far away, but the fact that the scenery and...

'Gone Girl': In 60 Seconds - The Review

Roger Crow | Posted 06.10.2014 | UK Entertainment

Gone Girl may be based on Gillian Flynn's best selling novel, but there's no shadow of a doubt who directed it. Though his opening titles are usually the standout moments of most of David Fincher's films, here each credit is so brief it barely registers.

Making a Killing... The Old Way

They say that the jobs you have the most fun on are the ones the public enjoy the least but early word on WSKTOW is very positive and I have to say I'm incredibly proud of it. Of course, making a good film isn't enough. The press usually give my films a mauling but then I don't make them for the press.

The Huffington Post UK | Posted 30.09.2014 | UK Entertainment

The much-hyped trailer for 'Inherent Vice' has been aired, with Joaquin Phoenix depicting a drug-fuelled detective in LA on the hunt for his missing e...

This weekend an incident occurred that reminded me of what is is to be disabled in the UK in the 21st Century. I have been disabled since a few weeks after birth, having been born with cancer, but started using a wheelchair full time at the age of fifteen after a complication caused my spine to collapse.

Foodie Films to Feast Over

Julie & Julia gets the balance just right for me, time and time again, even now I feel a call to watch it as it contained so much hidden inspiration and some very wise words. Depending on how I am feeling, I get different messages from this film.

Guardians of The Galaxy Review

Tim Manton

It's one of those films in which every character has their turn as the stand-up, including the villain. There was only one character I felt should have been done differently. Warning: anyone who hasn't seen The Avengers should skip the next paragraph, for the sake of avoiding spoilers.

10 Alternative Rainy Day Films for Children

Leigh Clark | Posted 30.09.2014 | UK Entertainment

There has been a swift decrease in the quality of children's films over the years. It's something I have noticed both as a keen cinephile and as a concerned parent... With CGI claptrap, mindless sequels and remakes, the multiplex is packed with nonsense that calls itself children's cinema.

Divided into six parts, How To Train Your Dragon 2 gives us a tantalising glimpse into the world of a major Hollywood animation. There are stunning pictures of the different featured landscapes - from frozen wastelands, arctic mountains to lush forests and underwater worlds.

2014: The Best Is Yet to Come

Tom Linay | Posted 08.09.2014 | UK Entertainment
Tom Linay

Over the next six months there are surprisingly thoughtful blockbusters, huge home-grown comedies, boundary pushing sci-fi and grand, epic fantasy. I've earmarked what I think are the seven stand-out films for the rest of 2014 that absolutely demand to be seen at the cinema.

The Top 10 Greatest 80s Films

Chris Saunders

They were cheesy and full of bright colours, big hair and even bigger shoulder pads, but the 80s were a seminal decade for movies. I know there are some notables that haven't made the cut, but I can't include everything. That is the nature of lists. They start and they end.

The Case of the Incredible Disappearing Princess

Pat Higgins

I watched a trailer for a movie I didn't recognise at the weekend. It was for an animated movie about a daring, unstoppable thief having a series of misadventures. Right at the end of the trailer, we glimpsed the female character who would presumably be his love interest. It was for Disney's Tangled.

Shout to the heavens and celebrate, it's part and parcel of the sporting life but when it's a world record defeat American Samoa 0 - Australia 31 and you're officially the worst football team in the world without one competitive win !! Do you laugh or cry? Can't be true. But it is.

Writing a film is like swimming the Channel, it needs training and preparation, a support team and the right weather and currents, all aligned on the right maps and charts.

Labor Day (REVIEW)

Alice Charles | Posted 21.05.2014 | UK Entertainment
Alice Charles

After reading Walter Kirn's superb book and seeing what a hash Reitman made of that, my expectations for Labor Day were low - and I was not disappointed. Here again, Reitman writes and directs; I hope he never repeats the experience, if this is anything to go by.

Film Review - Stranger By The Lake

Clive Botting | Posted 21.04.2014 | UK Entertainment
Clive Botting

An intelligent psychological thriller with a Hitchcockian feel. Alain Guiraudie's assured direction results in a seductive, powerful, menacing and fascinating film. Sexually explicit but not provocative - it isn't about sex, but rather about the complications and dangers that anonymous sex can lead to.

Film Review - Claire Denis's Bastards and Alexandre Castagnetti's Love Is In The Air

Clive Botting | Posted 14.04.2014 | UK Entertainment
Clive Botting

Clair Denis's intimate dramas are always eagerly awaited and 'Bastards' is no exception - a revenge drama about family ties, suicide and sexual abuse will frustrate, annoy, intrigue and mesmerise. 'Love is in the Air' in contrast is a predictable slickly directed romcom which proved to be amusing, charming and quite delightful.

Don't Reject the Movie Remake, Sometimes It's Worth it

The Conversation UK | Posted 06.04.2014 | UK Entertainment
The Conversation UK

Should we worry about these remakes, or just enjoy the opportunity to see new versions of some of our favourite stories? If we listen to the vast majority of film critics, it seems we should be rather more than worried.

The Magic of a Film Club

I help run a film club; every second Thursday we show a film to a small audience of around 20 - 25 people. We put it on during the day so inevitably the audience is mostly made up of older people.

The Repulse of Wall Street

Sammy Sultan | Posted 08.03.2014 | UK Entertainment
Sammy Sultan

Perhaps I should've seen another film, if I can't stomach what certain grown-ups do for a living. Maybe I'm an idealist, but I can assure you my rose-tinted spectacles came off for two hours. Never has a film captured the disgusting, murky world of banking so vividly.
