We don't want to give too much away but all we will say is that the film is engaging, funny, thought provoking and emotive. While watching the film, you quickly forget that you are watching a man with Asperger's syndrome, instead you just see a man who is searching for love.
Done, clichéd, unoriginal and it saddens me that empowerment of women must force its way onto the agenda, yet Fifty Shades effortlessly takes the headlines without a conscious nod to the importance of empowerment and equality. If I'm wrong tie me down and take a paddle to my rear.
At a time when - despite being a fully modernised world in most others senses - women still fail to receive pay packets equal to their male counterparts, the need for women to be portrayed as equals in mainstream media has never been more critical.
I've read a chapter of the book (couldn't cope with any more of that weak dialogue), but thought the movie was solidly made and well cast (though Michael Fassbender would have been a better Grey).
It's about 50 miles from Selma to Montgomery in Alabama, and it's 50 years this year since civil rights supporters made that walk three times. The release of the movie Selma tells the story of those walks, with David Oyelowo as civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jnr.
When EL James's book exploded onto the scene with tales of - shock horror - how ordinary women were suddenly sneaking off to their bedrooms for a bit of self pleasure with a book, I thought: big deal, some of us have been doing that for years.
It's a golden age. A purple patch. A triumph of style and substance. Ring out the cliches, because UK telly drama is the cat's pyjamas right now. You don't need to be Sherlock to recognise the quality of the scripted stuff on our screens last year.
A beautifully observed and sensitive modern love story with faultless performances contrasts with Pierre Dulaine's dream of ballroom dancing bringing Jewish and Palestinian children together.
I can see why the BDSM community are up in arms. Here is a man who stalks his victim with a degree of fortitude that it's hard not to feel some begrudging sense of awe. He knows her bank details, in fact he has a built an entire file on her and flies out to interrupt a holiday with her parents, checking in to the same hotel as she's enjoying cocktails with her mother.
I'd be amazed if this didn't feature heavily in the next Razzie awards. The scene in the finale where a key character's wings unfurl is one of the most laughable I've witnessed in a major film over the past 12 months.
Over 20 years later and I have learnt that Flash Gordon has had an impact on just about everyone who has seen it. It's not a film that people find "okay". It's a film that "blew your mind". If it didn't, you simply hadn't seen it.
The media is certainly giving the impression that something is afoot in the hood we call father. Just two years ago, Netmums revealed that nine out of ten parents felt TV dads do not reflect the contribution that fathers actually make to family life.
When the screening started, our three children were so excited, they were flung into the first episode on a tidal wave of expectation. And they weren't disappointed. The show has everything a kid could want; action, intrigue, laughs, robots, magic and ninjas. And, of course, Lego.
Teacher alert: If you are worried about racist language in your classroom, or any attitudes towards "people of colour", take your students to see Selma. If not, find a reason to go anyway.
Judging by the Daily Mail's tweets, this year's Baftas was notable only because 1. Keira Knightley was pregnant ("Keira hides her bump in a gown made by blah blah") and 2. Rosamund Pike gave birth recently ("Rosamund Pike showed off her amazing post-pregnancy figure in a gown made by blah blah.")
From thinking of getting engaged, to finding a date or working out what to do on the evening itself, this advice, inspired by Disney's 'Frozen' film, will help make your Valentine's Day a success.
