It's Christmas morning December 25, 2016 at 6:17 am. You can't sleep because this year, for some reason, you seem to be more excited about what's under the tree than in years past. But you know the rest of the home is still sleeping so you reach for your phone.

Is It Weird To Love TV Homes?

Last year on a trip to America I made sure to swing by 1329 Carroll avenue - or for those not in the know, the house from TV show Charmed. I started watching the show at a mere eight years old and accounting for the eight seasons of the show plus all the reruns on Netflix it was an awful lot of time to invest in a television show.

Hollywood is home to the rich and famous. As someone who has grown up watching the city on screen, there's something very magical about visiting Tinseltown in person. It has a vibe like nowhere else in the world - with a culture that is very much its own and sprinkled with a long history in film and television. After recently spending a week in Los Angeles and taking in the array of sights the city has to offer, I can now bring you my Top 5.

Anything centred around cute baby fish and lost parents is going to melt even the coldest of hearts on this exceptionally rainy August. Finding Dory truly is a recipe for waterworks, with the opening scene being pure Pixar magic.

As a parting aside, I definitely reckon I know who Michael "Tarzan" Heseltine will be backing to be the new leader of the Tories. It's got to be Theresa May, hasn't it? If for no other reason than those infamous African inspired Leopard print kitten heels of hers.

The Nice Guys/Warcraft: The Beginning Reviews

Roger Crow | Posted 08.06.2016 | UK Entertainment
Roger Crow

When Shane Black co wrote and directed The Nice Guys, he must have been buoyant from the success of Iron Man 3 and thought Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling would be perfect as the 1970s detectives trying to crack the mystery of a dead porn star. Alas, they aren't.

How to Watch Films as a Feminist

Kate Delaney | Posted 02.06.2016 | UK Entertainment
Kate Delaney

With great feminist knowledge, comes great responsibility. No longer will subliminal sexism go unnoticed in your favourite TV series, no longer can you re-watch childhood movies with ignorance at their underlying misogyny and no longer can you appreciate a cheeky rom-com without feeling like you've betrayed your own kind.

I was a fan of the comic, and hoped that one day we would see a lavish big screen version. So when the news arrived at that Benedict Cumberbatch was playing the eponymous sorcerer, like millions of fans around the world, I was thrilled by the news. Now the trailer has arrived, I'm not so sure.

Normally I stay for the quotes, the pop culture, the film techniques and references. Now I want to rewatch it for the character and plot development; even if it amounts to nothing more than a Western tinged big screen adaptation of Cluedo. But will fans of Tarantino applaud it? I doubt it...

Room Film Review: 'Exquisite And Life-Affirming'

Sophie McNaughton | Posted 03.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Sophie McNaughton

While Room has the makings of a terrifyingly real horror story or psychological thriller, director Lenny Abrahamson refuses to diminish or cheapen Donoghue's life-affirming story with gimmicks or horror-movie-frights, and instead creates a heart-breaking, and paradoxically heart-warming, masterpiece of cinema which tells a story of human spirit, hope and the incomparable love between a mother and her child.

He will go on to see things we wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. He'll watch C beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. And he will go on to give Blade Runner's Rick Deckard the biggest challenge of his life. Friday, January 8, 2016 marks Roy Batty's incept date, or actual birth day as any fan of Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi classic will tell you.
