Maybe it was the release of The Social Network reminding us of Aaron Sorkin’s genius, maybe it was the fact that Martin ‘President Bartlet’ Sheen has been in town for JDIFF, maybe it’s just that it’s been far too long, but we’ve been re-watching our West Wing boxset here at Culch towers and my, my [..]

It’s that time of year again. The full Oxegen 2011 line-up has been announced and you’ve got to make up your mind about whether you’re still young enough to enjoy dancing in a field and being covered in more muck than Babe. (A good indicator of youth is whether or not you remember Babe and [..]

If you enjoyed the first two you won’t be disappointed with this but it stands alone well for those who have never visited the magical world of Narnia before.

Best Film Prediction* Each and every year for as long as I can remember, I have sat up to ungodly hours of the morning watching the Oscar ceremony. I can’t explain what this means to a film reviewer, it’s basically like our Christmas.
