Russell Crowe as Noah in Darren Aranofsky's biblical epic

Film Review: Noah

Leon Nicholson takes a look at Noah starring Russell Crowe, Emma Watson and Ray Winstone. Available now on Blu-Ray and DVD. When it was announced that the brilliant Darren Aronofsky was to helm Noah, there were a few raised eyebrows. The majority however, thought (me included) with this in trusted hands this could signal the [...]

Lust

80 Years Of Hammer: Lust For A Vampire (1971)

For our second film in the 80 Years Of Hammer series, Dawn Dabell takes a look at one of the studio’s less well-regarded titles.

Duel At Diablo

Shootin’ Westerns: Duel At Diablo (1966)

The Point

Gather Round The Tele: The Point (1971)

Gather Round The Tele – the feature that looks at family movies – continues with Tim Wickens looking at The Point starring Ringo Starr and Paul Frees. For those who thought H.R. Pufnstuf was the only trippy (possibly) LSD induced children’s movie/program, think again. Singer songwriter Harry Nilsson openly admitted that he came up with [...]

Opinion: All The Right Sporting Moves

Leon Nicholson takes a tongue-in-cheek look at probable future (fictional) biopic projects about successful sporting legends. N.B. All projects mentioned below are totally made up with no basis or foundation in reality. Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor powered his way to yet another World Matchplay title (his 15th in fact) clearly marking him as the greatest of [...]
