Moomins on the Riviera

One thing is of the utmost importance and must be made clear from the outset: moomins are in no way related to hippopotami. So says Moominpappa (Nathaniel Parker), wearing his one customary piece of clothing, a top hat – accompanied by a bow-tie for appearances sake – as he regales new found friend the Marquis […]

Gone Girl

A recent addition to the Sky Movies package; the thriller Gone Girl is the latest drama from acclaimed director David Fincher (Seven, Fight Club). Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, who also wrote the screenplay, Gone Girl tells the story of a seemingly happy couple, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) and Amy Elliott-Dunne (Rosamund Pike). […]

A Royal Night Out

8th May 1945, V.E. Day. It’s the end of the Second World War, and celebrations are taking place throughout the country. Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret are allowed to leave Buckingham Palace for a few hours to join the crowds in celebration, under the watchful eye of military protection. A Royal Night Out tells the true […]

The Rise of the Krays

The old saying goes that you wait an age for a bus and then two come along at once. The highly anticipated Legend from writer/director Brian Helgeland, in which Tom Hardy plays both the leading roles, is not the only 2015 film to cash in on the current Krays craze that appears to be sweeping the nation, […]

A Little Chaos

I really wanted to like A Little Chaos. From the outset, it seems that the film has a strong team behind it. Directed by Alan Rickman, the cast includes Kate Winslet, Matthias Schoenaerts, Stanley Tucci, Helen McCrory, Rupert Penry-Jones and Jennifer Ehle. Alan Rickman also has a small role as King Louis XIV. Having been […]

Ron Scalpello interview (Pressure)

Pressure tells the story of four deep-sea saturation divers who become trapped at the bottom of the Indian Ocean after a storm sinks their ship whilst they are on the dive. I spoke with director Ron Scalpello to find out some more. Hi Ron, so how did the idea for this film come about – […]

Into the Grizzly Maze

If you go down to the woods today be sure to watch out for a bloody great big grizzly bear. His name is Bart. He’s really mad and shouts a lot. And he’s hungry. He doesn’t like humans much at all – other than the way they taste. Aggrieved at the deforestation of his natural habitat and the […]

Addicted to Sheep

Addicted to Sheep tells the story of the Hutchinson family, sheep farmers in the North Pennines who are trying to breed the ultimate Swaledale sheep. The film opens with a shot of farmer Tom assessing a less-than-perfect example – the wool is too frizzy, the horns too widely spaced, the black and white patterning is […]

The Battle for Warsaw

It’s no coincidence the sombre war films win the Oscars, and by the end of The Battle for Warsaw (aka Stones for the Rampart) you think it might have a chance. For the first half, however, it winds its audience up with an overly jocular tone and a particularly annoying techno riff. We’re in the […]

Run All Night

“I’ve done terrible things in my life” growls Liam Neeson. Lying on his back in a wood, a gunshot wound in his side, he gazes up to the misty canopy through glassy eyes and laments past sins catching up to him. We’re very firmly in Taken/A Walk Among the Tombstones territory as we begin Catalan director Jaume Collet-Serra’s third endeavour with the […]
