Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes Review

Revolution? It’s the only solution.

Well, that’s what Serj Tankian used to say.

Of course, success in this capitalist circus we’ve engineered tends to blunt our revolutionary zeal.

The Devil’s Double Review

It’s often said that everyone has their own doppelganger in this world.

Lord knows I’ve had my fair share of people telling me who I look like, from Robbie Williams to Russell Brand and Colin Farrell via Johnny Depp.

Of course, I don’t really look like any of them. Although my Nan was closest to hitting my nail on the head when she asked me who this Johnny Debt was.

Your Highness DVD Review

About ten minutes into David Gordon Green’s Your Highness, one overriding mystery to which I still cannot fathom the beginning of an answer began to cloud my mind.

Namely, how in the name of all that is good did this project’s creators and financiers convince such a collection of Hollywood players, screen legends, classical English actors and modern belle du jour’s to get on board with such a daft and seemingly worthless production?

Submarine DVD Review

Submarines are strange creatures.

They spend the majority of their lives with their heads under water, move kind of funny when compared to other kinds of seafaring devices and tend to slip under the radar by design.

All of which may have inspired the name of Joe Dunthorne’s debut novel, Submarine, and no doubt moved Richard Ayoade sufficiently to adapt this for his own virgin directorial voyage for his film of the same name.

Arrietty Review

Animated films tend to attract children in droves. They grab a reluctant parent by the wrist before running to the cinema as fast as a teenage boy shedding his clothes in grateful anticipation of his first sexual encounter.

Once they’ve sat down, these little people then throw popcorn at each other, shout, talk and generally make a ruckus for most of the film before climaxing in a good long sleep.
