From Beethoven to Sirius Black and Zorg – The Chameleonic Gary Oldman

Throughout this series of Best of Brit articles, there has been a relatively common theme; a lot of the people I’ve spoken about have spent some of their earlier years in one of the renowned theatrical training grounds such as the RSC, the National, or RADA. This chap is a bit different in that he […]

JB, Or Not JB, That Is The Question

Imagine if Ian Fleming had been a US Marine rather than British Naval Intelligence. Furthermore, imagine if he’d written about a secret agent operating in the dying embers of the Cold War rather than during the whitest of white hot parts. Let’s just say, imagine if he was Robert Ludlum rather than Ian Fleming. So […]

Movie Review – Peace River

Peace River caught me off guard. I knew nothing about the movie going in. Lucky for me, prior to the showing there were interviews with the writer/actor, Benjamin M. Jones. He truly wrote this from his heart. I felt it throughout the entire film. The story was endearing, heartbreaking, and full of real-life situations and […]

Jack Reacher History – The Short And The Tall Of It

  1997 saw the publication of The Killing Floor by Lee Child. It did quite well; it was nominated for five awards and won three. It started a series of twenty-six novels, so far, and around twenty novellas and short stories. To date, Lee Child has sold over a hundred million copies of his Jack […]

Themes On A Christmas Carol – Blackadder’s Christmas Carol (1988)

I know that a lot of people outside of the UK only think of Mr Bean when they hear of Rowan Atkinson but, trust me, he is far funnier than that character. As has been alluded to many times, I am getting on a bit and can remember him in Not The Nine O’Clock News […]

Indie Movie Review – The Pilot: A Battle For Survival/Летчик (2021)

Last week I got to review my first ever Kazakh film (Sweetie, You Won’t Believe It/Жаным, ты не поверишь!); both as a viewer and as a reviewer. I said something about previously thinking of foreign films coming from either Europe or the Far East. Getting one from somewhere in between was a bit of a […]

Movie Review – The Tragedy Of Macbeth (2021)

I don’t think there is anyone out there who is unaware of William Shakespeare. You might not have actually been to a theatre to see a production but, paradoxically, that isn’t the only place to see Shakespeare’s words being performed. I don’t think it’s over pushing the point to say that most people haven’t necessarily […]

Movie Review – Redeeming Love

I went into this thinking it would just be work and that I’d watch Spider-Man: No Way Home again afterward for my reward. To my great surprise and pleasure, Redeeming Love is a wonderful film about the Wild West, the Gold Rush, and women’s agency. It’s never boring, the characters are well-drawn and acted, the costumes are perfection, […]

Non-Christmas Christmas Movies – First View Review of First Blood

Whenever you hear of a film with Rambo in the title, you’ll no doubt think of wall to wall violence, tidal waves of blood, and a soundtrack consisting mainly of gunshots, screams, and explosions. You may also think of bulging biceps as Rambo hauls back on the string of a bow so he can pick […]

Christmas Classic First View Review – A Christmas Carol (1938)

Over the years I’ve seen a fair few versions of A Christmas Carol, or Scrooge as it’s sometimes called, but this 1938 version is a new one on me! There’s no point going too deeply into the story because, as both Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and Simply Red said, “If you don’t know […]
