Horrible Bosses – witty, stylish, silly and satisfying. Fun

Tweet    Horrible Bosses – Seth Gordon The best comedy I’ve seen this year. And judging by the queues, a word-of- mouth hit. The sheer pace and minimal gag gaps in Horrible Bosses means our interest never flags and the next laugh is never far away. Lots of very solid TV comedy experience is all there on […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 and 3D

Tweet        Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 and 3D – David Yates   The best use of the 3D process I have seen in a film so far.  If 3D is to be more than just the short-lived gimmick it was when it was first used commercially in movies in the […]

Sons of War

Tweet    My Son I taught my son to walk by instinct he could cry you taught him how to march how to kill, how to die I taught my son to talk by instinct he could think you taught him to say ‘sir’ to withstand pain, not blink I taught my son to ride […]

Beginners – Mike Mills

Tweet      Beginners – Mike Mills Ineffable.  Like the hole in a donut.  Without the donut.

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 – David Yates

Tweet    Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 2:  David Yates Alexandre Desplat is the star of this urgent, thrilling denouement of the Potter saga. And neither he, nor anything he created or contributed to the film can be seen. Almost everything in Deathly Hallows 2 is the best in the series: acting, […]

BBC Apprentice Final – Cometh the Hour – Cometh the Tom

Tweet    The Apprentice Final – Cometh the Hour – Cometh the Tom Suicide note in two words: ‘non-profit’ to Lord Sugar.  Suicide note in one word: ‘Sugar’, without the Lord.  Thus ‘in-it-to-win-it’ Jedi Jim Eastwood’s AMSMART battle plan, codeworded AMCREEP, went word-spinning out of orbit and was incinerated while trying to re-enter planet Sugar’s […]

The Apprentice Special – Dara Obriain’s Greatest Hits and Apprentice Slips

Tweet    The Apprentice Special – Dara Obriain’s Greatest Hits and Apprentice Slips Dara Obriain is much more fun on You’re Fired than Adrian Childs. Mind you some may say that root canal surgery is more fun than Adrian Childs. Dara is delightfully sceptical about the whole Apprentice process; not I think especially fond of […]

The Apprentice Episode 11 – Jedi ‘Yoda’ Jim – clever he is

Tweet    The Apprentice Episode Eleven – Jedi ‘Yoda’ Jim – Clever he is Apprentice dilemma: win the task or win the Boardroom?  On the first of these, the two person team-Logic this week comprised the nicest and most imaginative ever candidate with perhaps the best.  On the second, we have the best manipulator in […]

Larry Crowne – Rom-Com with too little ROM and not enough COM

Tweet    Larry Crowne – Tom Hanks For my money Julia Roberts is the best romantic comedy actress working today. Unfortunately this can be a 2-edged sword as she can flatter to deceive by adding a touch of class to relatively modest material and make it play.  She rarely gets the quality of writing in […]

The Apprentice Episode 11 – Five Go Off To A Safe House

Tweet    The Apprentice Episode 11 – Five Go Off To A Safe House The first thing to say about this programme profiling the final five is that every single one of them comes out better through these individual profiles than from anything we have seen them do in the previous 10 weeks. This does […]
