Before I Go to Sleep - A Review

Carina Maggar | Posted 11.09.2014 | UK Entertainment
Carina Maggar

Based on the best selling novel by SJ Watson, Before I go to Sleep is a very frustrating film, starring Nicole Kidman and Mr Darcy (Colin Firth). Described as a 'gripping psychological thriller' by critics, I'd like to refer to it more as a distinctly average crime story. If I had to liken it to a fruit; it would be a poached apple; easily digestible and not at all exciting.

Latent Hazard by Piers Venmore-Rowland - Book Review

I have always wanted to be in an action thriller. Such fleeting fantasies tend to find me when travelling. Every woman under the age of forty has and no doubt continues to fanaticise about staring in their own music video.

The Real Problem With Homeland

Grant Feller | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Grant Feller

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.

My Book's Been Gazumped By Dan Brown

Laura Palmer

My first thought was - hurray! That's my May reading sorted. I know it's not very cool to like Dan Brown, but I do. Not wholly unlike The Abomination, I thought. Oh. Wait a second. The Abomination. Our big white hope. The book that would make us millionaires, give us iPads For All.

Danny the Champion of the World? Boyle Sends Audiences Into a Trance

Greg Wetherall

Returning to his day job, Boyle re-enters the film arena with Trance, a London-based psychological thriller that rushes around with about as much calm and patience as an ADHD sufferer. He has said that he was finishing this project whilst he was working on the Olympic opening ceremony, and that this should be viewed as its 'dark, evil cousin'.

Review: Without Warning - John Birmingham

Alice Charles | Posted 20.02.2013 | UK Entertainment
Alice Charles

Birmingham quickly establishes his high-concept premise - and then goes precisely nowhere with it. Lots of questions are raised but never fully explored nor answered. Indeed, Without Warning feels very much like a six-hundred page set-up for the other two books in the trilogy.

Slutty Halloween - Why Can't Women Just Wear Normal Fancy Dress?

Lauren Bravo | Posted 31.12.2011 | UK
Lauren Bravo

Somewhere between the Thriller video and Kitty Brucknell humping that dartboard, Halloween became the get-out-of-slutty-free card - a chance for nice, normal girls with a tasteful line in Uniqlo cardigans to crank their assets up to their chin and embrace their slaggy alter egos for a night.

Michael Jackson - No Sympathy for a Loser

Simon Napier-Bell

If ever a career was going to end in tears, it was Jackson's. You compared the seething anger in Billy Jean, or the livid fury of Beat It, with that daft Lady Veronica speaking voice. And you saw it at once - Vesuvius with the lid on.
