The Best of British Cinema

Friday, 24 April 2015
When people think of cinema, they tend to think of Hollywood and, generally, America’s output comes to mind. But Britain has made a huge contribution to film over the last 100 years and we can be very proud of that. Let’s explore, shall we? In creating this article, I tried to narrow the list down to 5 key films with 1 representing each genre. Naturally, certain sacrifices had to be made (sorry, romance!) but other films will be touched upon where relevant. Therefore, this isn’t a ... Read More

Mortal Kombat X

Thursday, 23 April 2015
I remember the release of the original Mortal Kombat back in 1992. Though I didn’t actually play it until Midway released it on the Sega MegaDrive the following year, I remember the controversy and outrage. My parents didn’t really see what all the fuss was about, but they still refused to buy it for us. I can’t blame them, as back then you’d maybe pick up a brand new game in Ireland for around 70-ish Irish pounds. But I got the game by other... more underground means. Today that means ... Read More

Predestination

Monday, 20 April 2015
My first venture into the world of time travel wasn’t with a movie, game or book. No, instead it really happened to me. Well, not really, but to my young mind I thought I actually did time travel. I’m probably going to regret even telling this, but hey, I’d like to think you’re all pretty close to me by this point, so f*ck it. I was around 4 or 5. My three older brothers at the time somehow convinced me that they could send me through time, so I thought, sure, why not, right? They told ... Read More

Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer's Curse

Sunday, 19 April 2015
Dude, I love Dragonheart. I didn’t see it in the cinema on release, but I’ll always remember watching it on TV in around 1999. With a cup of tea in hand and a box of Bourbons by my side, I was kicking back and watching Dennis Quaid shoot the shit with a Dragon that had the voice of Sean Connery. It’s a really good film, and one that in terms of CGI still stands up today. Seriously, go back and watch it. Alongside the T-Rex in Jurassic Park and the various bugs in Starship Troopers, Draco ...

’71

Saturday, 18 April 2015
Low budget British cinema often has a stigma attached to it. People think that it’s just dark, gloomy, depressing social realism. That description sums up ’71 pretty well but don’t let that put you off, the film is so much more. ’71 showcase the best things British cinema has to offer, showing the world you don’t need lots of money to make an outstanding film. It’s brutal, tense, brilliantly directed and acted, and is one of the best British films in years.Out now on Blu-Ray and DVD ... Read More

Paddington

Friday, 17 April 2015
Out now on Blu-ray and DVD, is Paddington worth your time? Or is it another Yogi Bear?Firstly, let’s go back to November 2014. Before Paddington was released, the BBFC had to classify it - as they do every film. Paddington was rated PG. No surprise there, really. However, the BBFC stated this was for ‘dangerous behaviour, mild threat, mild sex references [and] mild bad language’. SEX references?! Michael Bond, creator of Paddington, was ‘totally amazed’ by this classification. Rightly ... Read More
