The Hateful Eight (2015)

Picture in your mind the output of a Quentin Tarantino movie if it were written by Agatha Christie. Try and imagine “Ten Little Indians” wrapped in reams of Tarantino-style dialogue and splattered with buckets of blood and guts and there you have the idea of The Hateful Eight, a retro spaghetti western that is as […]

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)

It is difficult to be blasé about Star Wars if you happen to be one of the millions who have spent the last 40 years with George Lucas’ seminal epic rattling around in your brain – believe me, there are a lot of us. But even if you aren’t, even if you‘re only a casual […]

Creed (2015)

One of the greatest gifts that the movies can give back to a true movie fan is the feeling of coming home. Few movies are worth the return trip, but when done right we get the joy of reuniting with old friends, catching up with great characters years later and seeing how their lives turned […]

Argo (2012)

The story of Argo might be hard to swallow if it weren’t so wonderfully true.  A lot of movies claim to be based on fact but few ever come off with the feeling that they are anything more than Hollywood hot air.  Argo is different.  Based on fact, it tells a story that would collapse […]

Samsara (2012)

We have been told that there are six degrees of separation between us and every other person on this planet.  The census conducted in 2000 revealed that our population had passed 7.4 billion.  That is a lot of sixes to divide up.  If you are in doubt about that theory, all you need to do […]
