The name Richard Curtis instantly evokes the movies Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Love, Actually. So going into this film, I had certain expectations. Mainly that this would be yet another charming romantic comedy, with many mishaps for the destined couple along the way. So it was to my great surprise that About Time was very different to Curtis’s usual fare. Though this story is about love, it is also about dealing with loss and that little thing called “destiny” The plot of the movie is…


WORLD WAR Z (2013) DIRECTOR: Marc Foster STARRING: Brad Pitt, Matthew Fox, Mireille Enos GENRE: Horror, Action Zombie Apocolypse CERT: 15 World War Z had a rather chequered production. So much so, that the studios hired Lost alumnis Drew Goddard and Mathew Lindelof to re-write the ending. So I went into the movie mildly apprehensive as I didn’t know what to expect. Thankfully I was surprised at how entertaining the film was. The plot of the movie is pretty simple. Gerry Lane, Pitt, is just spending a rather normal morning…

WARM BODIES (2013) DIRECTOR: Johnathan Levine STARRING: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich GENRE: Romance, Zombie, Comedy CERT: 12A REVIEWER: Gemma *Warning: Review contains spoilers* Warm Bodies had the promise of being a slick, smart zombie movie. Yet for me it seemed to try to be too edgy and ended up being unsure what genre it was actually aiming for. What was really puzzling was the fact that I did enjoy the film, but it didn’t match up to my all-time favourite zombie comedy, Shaun of the Dead. True, both movies are…


TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN PART 2 (2012) DIRECTOR: Bill Condon STARRING: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelle, Ashley Green GENRE: Paranormal, Drama CERT: 12A REVIEWERS: Gemma & Laura ** Warning: Contains Spoilers ** GEMMA I went to the cinema at a slight disadvantage to Laura. Having not seen the previous movie nor having read any the books apart from the first one, my review is based purely on from a movie review point of view. The fact that I hadn’t seen part 1 should have meant that I was at…


UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING (2012) DIRECTOR: Måns Mårlind & Björn Stein STARRING: Kate Beckinsale, Michael Ealy and India Eisley GENRE: Action, Fantasy, Horror CERT: 18 REVIEWER: Laura I’ve been a fan of the Underworld movies, and have watched all four now, UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING being the latest instalment. The film takes place in the future when the world has discovered vampires and lycans exist. This has discovery has led to a war and the mass culling of vampires and lycans. It opens with Selene, the lovely Kate Beckinsale, racing to find her lover…


MEN IN BLACK 3 (2012) DIRECTOR: Barry Sonnenfield STARRING: Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Jermaine Clement, Michael Stuhlbarg GENRE: Comedy, Action, Sci-Fi CERT: 12A REVIEWER: Gemma It has been fifteen years since the first Men In Black film came out. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones have gone on to other projects, each carving a name out for themselves in the industry. So it came as a bit of surprise when it was announced that a third film in the franchise would be coming out, especially as it had been…

Red Riding Hood

RED RIDING HOOD (2011) DIRECTOR: Catherine Hardwicke STARRING: Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons and Julie Christie GENRE: Horror, Fantasy, Mystery CERT: 12 REVIEWER: Laura Let’s start with the cinema tagline: “From the director of Twilight comes this breathtaking vision of 700 year old legend”. Then let me say I couldn’t help it, I know it’s not necessarily cool any longer to love both the Twilight books and films, but I don’t care, I love them anyway! And so as soon as I saw the trailer…
