Top 7 Movies about British Royalty

The release of Hyde Park on Hudson is fast approaching, a film about the significant point in history of the King and Queen’s very first visit to America and their stay with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. With all Royalness and respect for our Royal Family and Hyde Park on Hudson’s big screen debut, we have compiled a list of the top films based on the Royal Family.

Biffy Clyro – Opposites

Biffy Clyro, never ones to shy away from the epic, present us with their sixth offering ‘Opposites’. 20 tracks, 78 minutes split over two conceptual albums The Sand At The Core Of Our Bones and The Land At The End Of Our Toes.

Film Review: Zero Dark Thirty

Kathryn Bigelow and her team have created a gripping drama. With its steady pacing and minimalist tone it gives you a genuine feeling for what must have gone on in the search for Bin Laden – the years committed, the jobs lost, the lives wasted, the friendships tested.

Film Review: Chained

The end result is disgusting, horrific and everything a good scary movie should be.

Game Review: DmC – Devil May Cry

Devil May Cry is an awesome button bashing, style blaring franchise. I’ve been hooked on them since the first PlayStation 2 game and have eagerly awaited each sequel.

Film Review: The Sessions

Let’s not beat around the bush – The Sessions is a film completely consumed with sex. It spends its whole time talking about it, writing about it, thinking about it, reading about it (in a fairly squeamish way), doing it.

Film Review: Django Unchained

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 Spaghetti Western’s turn in the guise of ‘Django Unchained’.

Live Review: The Sword – Manchester Academy

As if crafted to push the lungs of an audience to their limit, Apocryphon seems like the perfect album to appease a baying crowd. As the lights dim and band’s intro music begins, soon we’ll know if this is true.

Game Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Formed by the team at Treyarch and brought to the world by Activision. BLOPs II as it’s widely known takes us on a journey from 1986 all the way to the future, 2025 to be exact.

Skrillex – The Leaving EP

When one album gets so much hype and becomes multi-platinum selling, an artist typically just can’t resist the temptation to make their next release using the same ‘winning’ formula… Not Skrillex… he’s decided to produce something utterly and completely different.
