The launch of a new James Bond film is always exciting and a proper “event”. I can still remember the excitement of going to see Goldeneye when it was released twenty years ago (clearly I sneaked into the cinema at the age of five).

Slow in places but there’s promise of greatness ahead

When it was announced that final film in the Harry Potter series would be split into two parts I was initially in two minds. The first thought was “Oh, they’ll be able to get more of the story in”…

Rookie director’s amazing accomplishment

For the fifth film in the Harry Potter series we once again have another new director. The fourth man in charge thus far in the franchise and this time it feels just right.

Dark clouds are forming over Britain – muggles in their offices know something is amiss, but not what. Infrastructure is collapsing and killings are rife…
