Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Harry Potter, both novels and films, was a bona fide cultural phenomenon; it?s hardly surprising that all those involved would wish to keep the story going. The refreshing thing about Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is that, though set in the Wizarding World, it presents a fresh set of characters and a totally [&hellip

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
J.J. Abrams is the man Hollywood turns to when blockbuster franchises need a refresh. His solid Mission: Impossible III brought Tom Cruise’s spy series back from the brink of extinction after John Woo’s calamitous second instalment while Star Trek was becoming a Trekkies-only zone until he rebooted the sci-fi behemoth with two entries that won [&hellip

Four films into his James Bond career and Daniel Craig might want to cut his losses. After the nostalgia-fuelled Skyfall became the highest-grossing Bond movie of all time in 2012, Craig was put on the same pedestal as when he rebooted the 007 franchise with a stylish Casino Royale debut. The anticipation for Spectre has [&hellip

The Man from UNCLE
I really hope that The Man From U.N.C.L.E breaks that duck and that we see a sequel

Mr Holmes takes as its conceit the idea that Sherlock Holmes (McKellan) is a real person, not a fictional character invented by Conan Doyle. His cases were fictionalized by his friend Dr Watson; Holmes himself has retired to the Sussex countryside where he tends his beehives and lives a hermit-like existence, with long-suffering housekeeper, the [&hellip

Avengers: Age of Ultron
When Joss Whedon finished The Avengers, he revealed that he would have never agreed to the project if he’d known just how much work it was going to entail 1. Especially, one must surmise, after he realised he made more money from his independently produced web series, Dr Horrible, than he did from writing and [&hellip

Vikings Season One
I missed Vikings when it was broadcast on TV last year but in many ways its been much more enjoyable to swallow it up in one gulp, rather than one episode a week. The first season tells the story of Ragnar (Fimmel), happily married to Lagertha (Winnick), but frustrated in his ambitions by his conservative [&hellip

The Wolf of Wall Street
Scorsese and DiCaprio team up again for a rip-roaring ride through Wall St with sex, drugs and 80's excess

Saving Mr Banks
This is an utterly captivating origin story on how the all singing, all dancing, iconic technicolour musical (with bells on) – Mary Poppins came to be. It follows the story from the perspective of P L Travers, the stern author of the slightly more dour books than most of us (polluted by popular culture) would [&hellip
