Best of British Biographies – Ewan McGregor

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… Well, a bit over fifty years ago on the banks of the River Tay in Scotland, Ewan Gordon McGregor OBE was born. His parents were both teachers so we are very lucky that he didn’t decide to follow in their footsteps. If he had, we […]

Best of British Biographies – Liam Neeson

Over six feet tall, deep voice with a Celtic accent, had a variety of occupations before becoming an actor, and is renowned for playing tough guys. No, not Sean Connery but Liam Neeson. He’s an inch taller than Sir Sean was and is Irish rather than a Scot. His previous career options included driving a […]

Best of British Biographies – Alec Guinness

I think, by now, that anyone who’s read more than a couple of my previous articles will be used to me saying something along the lines of “Ah yes. Fred Bloggs.

How do the movies in Star Wars stand up to the Bechdel test?

Do the characters in Star Wars — movies ostensibly depicting future lives and worlds — pass the Bechdel test? I was up too late one night and decided to think this through. What is the Bechdel test, you ask? It’s generally accepted as whether a work of fiction features at least two named women who […]


5 Older Movies We’d Love Remakes Of (And 5 That Are Perfect)

It is a truth universally acknowledged: a single movie in possession of a large following must be in want of a remake. At least, that’s how Hollywood executives seem to see things! Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the real truth is that remakes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. And that’s even understandable, to some extent. […]
