Ok, so this strange London late summer heatwave is doing its best to brighten our mood but, generally speaking, there's no escaping the fact the nights are drawing in, the heating's been on a couple of times, and there's often nothing nicer than curling up in front of the box and finding an old favourite.
On Sky Movies this evening, Ben Stiller does his bit to lift the mood in his energetic remake of 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty', which sees him escaping his humdrum job to jump out of an aeroplane, go skateboarding in Iceland and chase the girl. The message is clear, follow the dream, people.
