The Debt Review

Jonathan Campbell attends a special screening of The Debt, as the 2011 UK Jewish Film Festival cranks up the promotion of its forthcoming cinematic programme.

Crazy, Stupid Love Review

The imperfect combination of equal parts predictable romcom and laugh out loud funny.

That’d be Crazy, Stupid Love then, the latest hollywood comedy to be given the Steve Carell seal of approval.

The Black Angels At The Scala

Word of mouth following The Black Angels killer live shows this summer has done a good job gathering people at their autumnal London gig.

In four words, it’s a sell out.

Drive Review

A fork in the road is better than one in the eye.

Based on James Sallis’ book of the same name, Drive begins in the dead of night with a mysterious man speaking into a mobile phone in rather cryptic terms.

Warrior Review

How many days would it take to atone for all your past sins?
