Film Five Stars
I must admit that I hadn't been expecting much from the film Philomena despite the talents of Stephen Frears, Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. Having watched the trailer and read the blurb I was expecting a film that followed the usual true life emotional tale, played the right music at...

Film Two Stars

Noah trailer flooded online

Darren Aronofsky's Noah may be hitting the headlines for heavy debate over the editing - imagine that, who would have thought that a religious film from a such a director could hit editing issues from a major American studio interested in hitting the mainstream American audiences for the most profit...
