Energising us a frantic speeds between moments of tension, beauty and outright hilarity, with a wonderful homage to the Cargo cult tribes (look it up), Abrams has such faith in what he is doing, that he is starting his movie with what would be the climax of someone else's.

What is the measure of success? What are the success barometers settings? Who decided them, and why? Is success really money? I don’t think it is. I think Truth is success. ‘Rebellion’ is Truth.

At the very beginning of this movie, wrapped in the early morning black veneer of temporary problem solving darkness, where troubles are still but a sleepy glued blur, we hear the quiet solemn words of Ana (Paola Giannini Fernardo) asking her husband Papá (Francisco Pérez-Bannen) ‘Are you sure >>

A few years ago, quite a few in fact. I was baby-sitting my little sisters while my folks were out meeting friends. I was about 10, quite responsible, so don’t be phoning social services (it was the 70s, health and safety didn’t exist then), and ‘Salem’s Lot’ was on TV. The moment when >>

There are a number of essentials that you’ll need to bring along when going to see Lee Daniels (director of ‘Precious’) new movie ‘The Paperboy’. A cold drink, wet wipes and some deodorant, as this is one greasy, sweaty movie, and probably the perfect solution to the arctic world we seem >>

For a large part of the beginning of the movie I was really uncomfortable/uneasy (in a good way), despite the film looking like it was lavishly styled by Tom Ford. Even though most scenes looked like they sprung to life straight from a spread in Wallpaper* magazine and the beautiful soundtrack by >>

The average price of a years supply of ARV’s was about $15,000 when in actual fact the drugs were produced for less than pennies, so the profit margin was enormous. The giant, (very politically connected pharmaceutical) companies were not about to lose such wealth under any circumstances, >>

It’s not often you get the opportunity to drop in a quote from Greek philosopher Aristotle, who taught Alexander The Great, but ‘The whole is greater than the sum of its parts’ is quite apt in relation to Quentin Tarantino’s latest homage to his youthful influences, in this chapter it’s >>

I still remember heading along with my younger sister and my dad on the day of my Confirmation to see Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back when it first came out in the 80s. I didn’t/don’t believe in religion, but I sure as hell believed in the power of the force. Obliviously not in a biblical >>

Where oh where to start. It’s going be a strange one this review. On one hand, ‘Seven Psychopaths’ instantly became my favourite movie of 2012, and I want to scream with laughter about it from the heights. But at the same time, I don’t really want to talk about it here. What I want to do is >>

As with the best laid plans, or holiday trip, it doesn’t take long for things to unravel. And in one of the most beautifully observed (not so) passive aggressive responses to a litter bug incident, the movie turns into a slasher road movie, as imagined by Morrissey.

Directed, or more realistically composed by Rodney Ascher, the documentary Room 23 is the result of many (many) such viewings. Like the inspirational movie itself, this can be of both stunning insight, and potentially, ever so slightly, maybe a wee bit insane.

A bit like a dark Santa Claus(aws), Tim Burton arrives every so often, bearing what you hope is the wonderful treat you’ve been waiting all year for. And just like Christmas’s that we’ve all had at some stage, they can be sometimes a bit of a disappointment.
