Pride Review

Sunday, 14 September 2014 14:54

Following in the footsteps of The Full Monty and Billy Elliot, Matthew Warchus' Pride is a big, broad British crowd-pleaser that focuses on the unlikely true story of a group of gay activists and their alliance with a Welsh mining community during the miner's strike of the mid-80s.

If I Stay Review

Friday, 12 September 2014 19:32

If I Stay is another entry into the young adult weepie genre, carefully calculated to wring tears from teenage girls while emptying their wallets at the same time. That it's solidly directed and generally well acted raises it above its meagre ambitions and makes for an effective tear-jerker.

Norweigian director Hans Petter Moland has been working solidly for over twenty years now, with films like Zero Kelvin, Aberdeen and The Beautiful Country earning him critical acclaim. His latest film, jet black crime comedy In Order of Disappearance, sees the 59-year-old at the top of his game. The film premiered in Berlin this year before screening at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where I was lucky enough to sit down with Moland to discuss his latest film, his ongoing collaboration with Stellan Skarsgard and the importance of titles. The film is released on September 12th and was reviewed here

What If Review

Saturday, 06 September 2014 20:32

What if you meet the right person at the wrong time? That is the question at the heart of What If, the smart, snappy new rom-com from Goon director Michael Dowse that sees Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan's hipster twentysomethings hit it off at a party, with only one thing standing in the way of a romantic relationship: her boyfriend.

Let's Be Cops Review

Thursday, 04 September 2014 21:19

While it started life as a vehicle for Zooey Deschanel and her quirky behaviour, excellent sitcom New Girl has become more and more an ensemble show thanks to the winning chemistry amongst its cast. A healthy dose of that chemistry makes its way to the big screen in Let's Be Cops, Luke Greenfield's buddy comedy that sees New Girl stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr team up as two losers pretending to be cops.

The Guest Review

Thursday, 28 August 2014 21:46

As if their previous collaborations A Horrible Way to Die and You're Next didn't already cement director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett as the kings of genre throwback, then their latest effort The Guest certainly does. Wearing its Carpenter and Cameron influences on its sleeve, the film is a slow-burning, witty homage to the thrillers of the '80s that doesn't descend into the kind of obvious pastiche that has become increasingly prevalent in recent years.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Review

Tuesday, 26 August 2014 21:03

No sooner had Robert Rodriguez's Sin City hit cinemas back in 2005 than people started discussing sequels and given he had the rest of Frank Miller's novels to work with as well as a propensity for turning out films quickly and cheaply, it seemed like a no-brainer that a sequel would arrive sooner rather than later.

Hector and the Search for Happiness Review

Wednesday, 20 August 2014 21:12

Hector and the Search for Happiness, a whimsical travelogue based on French self-help author Francois Lelord's novel of the same name, is Simon Pegg's latest stab at being a conventional leading man. Much like other efforts like How to Lose Friends and Alienate People and Run Fatboy Run, Hector is another big misstep for an actor who should be so likeable but more often than not just comes across as smug.
