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.
Pro Wrestlers Vs. Zombies is, like others in the neo-B Movie revival, exactly what it says on the tin. Several big names from the professional wrestling stratosphere, including Rowdy Roddy Piper and 'The Franchise' Shane Douglas, are faced with a nightmarish apocalyptic scenario in which the living dead roam the earth with a penchant for lycra-clad flesh.
Angela Lansbury is a living legend of the stage and screen and though she doesn't play the main character in this flawed but enjoyable production of Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit, her wit, charm and comic timing is more than enough to ensure you leave the theatre smiling.
Non-Stop is a hybrid of Flight Plan, meets Red Eye, meets Snakes on a Plane, and it isn't nearly as good as any of those. As usual, Liam Neeson takes on the role of a troubled man who drinks far too much and has a constant pained look on his face (similar to that of constipation I'd say).
Dixie (Jonny Owen), a postman from South Wales is a music fanatic and dreams of discovering the best band of all time and then one day, trawling through YouTube, he finds 'The Premature Congratulations'. This will be Dixie's dream come true.

Although I know I'm in the minority, I felt that this film needed more gags, better use of supporting characters and less slow-moving hanging around. I couldn't help feeling like Anderson must have been told one too many times that he was a genius, and decided to just follow his instincts rather than filmmaking logic as a result...
Don't get me wrong, the S5 is a good phone, but so was the S4 and S3 before it. Ultimately, Samsung's new flagship is symptomatic of an industry that seems to have plateaued and is now churning out evolutionary rather than revolutionary updates to increasingly jaded consumers.
Silent Grace is an award-winning 2004 film, directed by filmmaker Maeve Murphy. It documents a disturbing chapter of Northern Ireland's nonviolent dirty protests and hunger strikes by republican female prisoners in 1980 that were never made public.
Fans of the original will find plenty to enjoy in the '300 on steroids' approach and it nicely sets up a rousing finale. For everyone else there are enough moments of genuine ingenuity to stop it being a complete shambles, but remember to switch your brain off at the door and prepare for a visual and aural beating. Sparta this isn't.
After seven weeks of auditions it's time for the remaining acts to face the battle rounds.
Not a play about the French monarchy, Versailles is an ambitious play from Peter Gill that dramatizes the controversial peace treaty that was signed in the French palace at the end of WWI.
Back and now classier than ever, we are kindly reminded that what we are about to see might have been 'blinged' up for our entertainment.
