Viewfinding The Weeks DVDs

Triangle “Yeah, cos it’s like the Myth of Sisyphus yeah? Originally by “The Greeks” but popularised by a French philosopher you probably haven’t heard of but I definitely have. This film is totes intellectual.” “No no no fool it’s a time travel thing not a purgatory thing. The clue is the title Triangle because it’s … Continue reading

From Paris with Love

The makers of From Paris with Love apparently think they’ve created a memorable, bad-ass action hero in John Travolta’s Charlie Wax. Even worse, John Travolta apparently thinks that he’s a credible, bad-ass actor. Both of these beliefs are sadly misguided. There are a few things I want to say but I’m not sure this film … Continue reading

A Nuptials Obsessed T-1000

Telling You Something You Already Know

In a moment of madness yesterday I saw Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. I think I must’ve been scrabbling for content before this weekend’s new releases but if that was the case it was a very poor decision. I didn’t want to watch it and there’s no reason to think you would either. Luckily … Continue reading

I Have Of Late – But Wherefore I Know Not – Lost All My Firth

Gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh –  it’s the Tom Ford directorial debut!! This photo does nothing to dispel the accusations that A Single Man is an over-styled fashion love-in rather than a credible movie but I swear to God Officer it’s not true. Okay, so it might have been Art Directed to within an inch … Continue reading
