A film about a man paralysed from the neck down seems like a strange debut for the motion capture director.  However, after learning that Andy Serkis' had a family member that suffered with a terminal illness, and that his mother taught disable...

I went into this film blind and that's exactly how it should be. So, you'll get nothing from me, and like it. 

Although I will say that it feels a bit like a (good) Will Ferrell movie.

100% cinema date material (or Netflix and chill, if you must). In UK c...

"I have a tendency to walk around the same fictional cities, and see who else lives there, and what their story might be."

Prodigals' Road follows a farmer who must choose between the life of a refuge and the life of his land in a magic, realist tale about fate....

Considering I'm a very emotional person, and my in-built glory complex means that I well-up whenever the hero of a story finds success from their previously-not-appreciated talent, I should have felt a lot more during Tom of Finland

The film started off with s...

Like many of us, Mike Rogers dreamed of a career in film. Except, something made Rogers stop dreaming, and start writing. Winning Sunday Shorts Script Competition with 'Sugar', meant Rogers had won the first competition he'd entered, with the first script he'd written....

It was horrific. It was genius. I’ll never watch it again, but oh my did I enjoy it. The acting from the leading couple of performances was so superb, they managed to keep the audience like best friends on their side whilst they *SPOILER ALERT* gnawed on human flesh. T...

I have just finished watching Victoria and I have no words. It seems trivial to break it down into what made it so good. It’s as if magic dust was sprinkled on it somewhere during production, or post-production, or shot listing, or casting, or (to be continued.)
