As with last January, to aid you with planning your year's cinemagoing, I've highlighted one film from each month that looks unmissable. It was hard narrowing it down to just one but I've concentrated hard and I think I've pulled it off.

Ridley Scott, in my opinion, had not made a great film in years, so I didn't hold out much hope for his latest, the biblical saga Exodus: Gods and Kings. However, like 2014's Noah, this huge, visionary epic holds together well and is worth a look on the big screen.

Now, it's hardly a controversial view that people residing in North Africa and the Middle East during the era of the Old Testament weren't white. They were likely to be of an Arab or Black complexion. So imagine my disappointment upon watching this trailer, to see that pretty much every single character, other than a few background thieves and slaves, were white.

The Real Problem With Homeland

The rather dull and uninvolving third series of Homeland - and let's face it, it's been going downhill since the middle of the first series - is, I think, the result not just of the curse of 'sequelitis' but the impossibility of turning a crisis into a drama.

Springsteen's role as the last great bastion of true, no frills rock is doubtless a root cause of his iconic status, but there's so much more to it than that.

I've constantly bitched about how unfair this system of movie marketing is, or how unfair the media is as credit really isn't going where credit is due. But until I went to the Aruba International Film Festival, I realised that there's a position that rarely gets any credit at all - they never get to walk the red carpet and yet they are the ones that truly make films magical.
