I think about Batman a lot, I kind of feel sorry for him - it must be exhausting all that being at the 'beck and call' of Gotham City lark. I imagine ...

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

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.

The recent news of a London cinema solely dedicated to screening documentaries seven days a week was music to my ears. The Curzon Bloomsbury formerly known as The Renoir Cinema will be the home of Bertha DocHouse - a new centre for documentary film as of March 27th.

That due to a lack of opportunity in their home countries, black British actors and other creative talent are finding success - and meatier roles in the states is not new news. Whilst we have numerous organisations trying to redress the balance like MOBO, Screen Nation Awards and the Asian Awards, things are slow to change.

Film Reviews - 'Love is Strange' and 'Dancing in Jaffa'

Clive Botting | Posted 13.04.2015 | UK Entertainment

A beautifully observed and sensitive modern love story with faultless performances contrasts with Pierre Dulaine's dream of ballroom dancing bringing Jewish and Palestinian children together.

Memo to Hollywood - You're Still Sexist

Jessie Thompson

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.

Ben Mirza

'The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou' marked a turning point in Anderson's career as a director. He'd reached a point where he had cultivated his inclinations for the goofy and eccentric into something coherent and unique. Moving from the niche, to the mainstream, but choosing his own path to it...

The Launch Party - The Most Important Part of Making a Movie?

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.

An Open Letter to the LGBT+ Community

Lisa Egan

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.

9 Driving Films That Inspire Us Go On The Road

'Gone Girl': In 60 Seconds - The Review

Roger Crow | Posted 05.12.2014 | UK Entertainment
Roger Crow

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.

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.

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 | Posted 10.10.2014 | UK Entertainment
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
Leigh Clark

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.
