Confine Cinema, DVD and On Demand Release Review ****-

Cert 15 | 81 mins

This is not a bad effort at all, 3.5 stars for a very watchable film.
Confine is written and directed by Tobias Tobbell (Every Picture, Aimless) and tells the story of Pippa (Daisy Lowe – The First Days of Spring), an emotionally and physically scarred former model, hiding away from the world in her flat, unable and unwilling to let her…more

Song For Marion DVD and Blu-ray Release Review *****

Cert PG | 90 mins

This is an amazing film, 5 stars of glorious British feel-good factor.
Song For Marion is written and directed by Paul Andrew Williams (The Cottage, Cherry Tree Lane) and it is an emotional roller-coaster from start to finish.
It tells the story of Arthur (Terence Stamp – The Adjustment Bureau, Yes Man), who is a proper grumpy old man, grumpier even than Victor Meldrew. Shy and…more

Portlandia Season 1 and 2 DVD Review *

Cert 15 | 350 mins

0.5 Star of the most annoying thing I have ever had the misfortune to watch; Ever!
From the very first sketch it became obvious that this was not my cup of tea, it rubbed me so up the wrong way; unfortunately this did not change through two seasons.
Maybe it’s because the characters created by the writer, creator and lead actor Fred…more

The Fall DVD and Blu-ray Release Review **---

This is very tricky, 5 stars up until the last minute, then down to 2 stars in the blink of an eye.
Created by Allan Cubitt (The Boys Are Back, Prime Suspect 2), The Fall is an extremely gritty crime drama, set in Belfast, starring Gillian Anderson (The X Files, The Last King of Scotland) as the detective superintendent brought in…more

Chasing Ice DVD and Blu-ray Release Review *****

Cert 12 | 76 mins

This is a most impressive feat. 5 stars almost doesn’t seem enough for the amount of work that went into the making of this incredible documentary.
Chasing Ice follows the work of James Balog,  an American photographer who specializes in capturing the relationships and interactions between humans and the planet on which we live.
During his work for National Geographic, he began to realize that…more

I Give It A Year DVD and Blu-ray Release Review *****

Cert 15 | 97 mins

Proper British genius this one, 4.5 stars.
I Give It A Year is written (screenplay) and directed by Dan Mazer (Bruno, Borat) and is an extremely refreshing take on what has become a rather tedious genre, the “rom-com”.
Rather than endless dithering as to who will get together with who, will they, won’t they, this film starts with the wedding and watches…more

Civvies DVD review ****-

Cert 15 | 360 mins

4 Star hard hitting series, Linda LaPlante at her best.
A brilliant 6 part series.
Fifteen years in the army and the last five spent in Northern Ireland from 1987-1992.
Frank Dillon, (Jason Isaacs – Harry Potter) walks away from his barracks with a check for £5000 in his pocket as he heads for civvie street, he heads for home to his long…more
