For the most part it's a slick, intelligent and mostly compelling yarn, a mash-up of Wargames, Tron, Starship Troopers and assorted other sci-fi adventures.
I was in London last week for the premiere of One Chance and my eyes have been sparkling since I have arrived. A premiere is always a very special occasion: seeing the culmination of your hard work, as well as enjoying the fun and prestige of the red carpet.
Where to begin with a film like 12 Years A Slave? My limited range of expression feels unable to do its impact justice but I have an obligation to this blog, so I'll give it a shot. Steve McQueen's film is an unforgettable experience and one I don't think I will likely repeat again.
A funny and charming take on a retired cat burglar with onset Alzeimers contrasts with an ambitious riveting and mythical modern morality tale.
'12 Years A Slave' has been called a 'game changing event' by Rolling Stones magazine in the States, but I can't help feeling like that's a vast understatement. Invest your all in this film - you will not be disappointed.

What can you say about 'Good Vibrations' ? You need to see it and it will embrace you with a frenetic passion that defied the surrounding madness of The Troubles.
It turns out that Short Term 12 is a sensitive, tender drama that deserves wider recognition. It features a handful of wonderful performances that bring characters from all sides of the story to life and what could have been dour and mawkish turns into something honest and uplifting.
Gravity is simply beautiful to look at, a galactic ballet, if you like. Tears float like bubbles and flames curls like tendrils of golden ringlets, and all the while planet Earth is spread out before the astronauts, an awe-inspiring tableaux.
