Film Review: ’71

To his absolute credit Demange doesn’t present any side as holding a right or justification to their actions, reason holds no stead in these times.

still the enemy within film review 2014

Film Review: Still The Enemy Within

You can tell a lot about an individual with the company they keep, and the ‘friends’ they chose to have around them. If your best friends turn out to be murderous dictators (Pinochet) and one of the most notorious known paedophiles ever in the UK (Savile) you’ll have to forgive my utter contempt for such an individual.

Game Review: Teslagrad

When it comes to puzzle games, especially ones involving platforming, the ones I found to be the most enjoyable are ones with one consistent element, or mechanic.

Jaguar XF R-Sport

Car Review: Jaguar XF R-Sport

IF Jaguar Land Rover was a football club it would be Barcelona/Real Madrid/ Manchester City/Chelsea/Paris Saint Germain all rolled into one.OK, maybe I exaggerate a bit, but it would at least be a shoo-in for the Champions League. And one of the ‘players’ that has helped make the company such a runaway success is the Jaguar XF.

Film Review: God Help The Girl

The brainchild of Belle and Sebastian singer/songwriter Stuart Murdoch, kickstarter-funded God Help the Girl is likely to be the most adorkable (apologies) indie film of the summer.

Film Review : Deliver Us From Evil

Film Review: Deliver Us From Evil

The poster for ‘Deliver Us from Evil’ proudly trumpets the film it’s advertising as being ‘Inspired by the actual accounts of NYPD sergeant Ralph Sarchie’ – a significant retreat even from the standard horror movie poster nonsense of ‘Inspired by true events’.

Film Review - Lucy - 2104

Film Review: Lucy

There’s an inherent flaw with fictional depictions of supreme intelligence; namely that the made-up mastermind is only ever able to utter anything as smart as their, in all likelihood, less-than hyper-intelligent creator can come up with.

Audi A3 Saloon 1.4 TFSI Spor

Car Review: Audi A3 Saloon 1.4 TFSI Sport

the new Audi A3 saloon is one of five redesigned engines available for the Audi A3 Saloon, a four-door, booted sibling of the big-selling A3 Sportback hatch. Audi’s entry into the modern compact saloon class is wider and longer than the latter car and offers more load space.

In God's Pocket

Film Review: God’s Pocket

And if that be the yardstick by which we measure such things then God’s Pocket, the feature directorial debut of silver-haired Mad Men actor John Slattery, smells something very much like the 36 inches which make up the yard.
