As I may* have mentioned before I hate 3D (*definitely, on numerous occasions). Hate it with an absolute passion. It’s usually a pointless gimmick which offers little to the narrative and relies on flashy whizzing tricks flying off the screen to elicit “ooohs and aaahs” from the audience…

Oz The Great and Powerful

The Wizard Of Oz holds a special place in my heart. It isn’t my favourite film or even my favourite musical but it is the film which first showed me the magic of cinema. It was the early 80s…

Les Mis – Some Good News

The news that her scenes have been cut just convinces me that I’m not interested in seeing the film at all. There’s only so much autotuning one girl can cope with.
