Was Boris A Good Mayor of London?
Posted in: Highlights, Videos

Britain is in the market for a new Prime Minister. Though it is Conservative Party members who will be making the decision, who they choose will have implications for all of us. With Boris Johnson the clear front runner, it’s worth asking what might a Boris led county look like? Luckily, we have a case study right […]

    Jeff Goldblum isn’t cast a million miles outside of his comfort zone as gangling scientist David Levinson, in this alien invasion flick written and directed by Roland Emmerich.

    When was the last time you saw a British horror movie truly worth the ticket price, one that really made you jump when you least expected it? In fact make that ANY recent horror film. This creepy flick about a haunted flat in Enfield pushes all the right buttons because the American producers have done […]

    The Marvel Universe has brought us another blockbuster worth watching. This film is a great extension as a sequel to Captain America, as well as the Avengers, but can also stand by itself. Civil War deals with the repercussions of Avengers: Age of Ultron where the Avengers caused a great deal of collateral damage and […]

    We had to wait almost 50 years for this movie to come out. The Jungle Book from 1967 is an all time classic and it’s no easy task to climb out of the shadow of such a predecessor. Yet Jon Favreau did an excellent job as director and mastered the challenge. Jon Favreau uses great […]

  • Miles Ahead (Film)
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    With actor Don Cheadle staking his reputation at the helm as director, producer, co-writer and also lead actor you can sense that this biopic of jazz musician Miles Davis is a project truly dear to his heart. It was also an opportunity too good to turn down, with Davis’ own family opting for him as […]

    Posted in: Events & Festivals, Highlights, Movies & TV Shows

    A Japanese restaurant on Kings Rd is an unusual and exotic location for a film festival but Benihana, Chelsea were the high-end, luxury orientated hosts you expected them to be and the plush surrounds were a much appreciated alternative to the typical festival circuit fare. Having said that, the Pomegranate Martini Cocktails at almost £12 […]

    This review should really begin “I have just seen the best P.O.V movie ever made.” The minute-to-minute action is unrivalled in any film in recent memory where the camera holds the perspective of the main protagonist. However, this review instead begins “I’ve just seen the worst film of 2016.” The explanation is as follows. Directed […]
