Race Relations: Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner (1967)

guess

The Race Relations Feature continues with Jonathon Dabell looking at Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner starring Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn and Katharine Houghton. It is considered ‘cool’ and ‘trendy’ to knock Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner for its datedness and overly simplified racial themes. There’s no denying that the conflict... Read More

Tune In: The Psychedelic Film Experience: Daisies

Daisies

Tune In: The Psychedelic Film Experience continues with Tim Wickens delving into strange territory behind the Iron Curtain with the Czechoslovakian film Daisies (1966).

This Is Not A Woman’s Picture: Savior (1998)

Savior

This Is Not A Woman’s Picture continues with Dawn Dabell looking at Savior starring Dennis Quaid and Nastassja Kinski. This month I take a look at a film which is less exploitative than the movies usually covered in this feature. It falls into a genre often perceived as typical ‘Boys-own’ material – the war film. Many war films are fairly male-orientated, appealing far... Read More

Film Review: Terminator Genisys

T5

Leon Nicholson takes a look at Termintaor Genisys starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney. Currently on General release at UK Cinemas. There hasn’t been (at the time of writing this) a decent Terminator movie since Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

klansman2

The Race Relations feature continues with Dawn Dabell looking at The Klnasman starring Lee Marvin, Richard Burton and O.J.Simpson. In this offering of Race Relations, I take a look at The Klansman (1974), which has attracted a lot of negative criticism from viewers and critics alike.
