(almost) at the movies: the girl with the dragon tattoo

It always annoys me when a well-made film (or TV show) is remade for an American audience and as far as I’m concerned, the English version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is just that (though I know there are plenty of folks who […]

at the movies: pirates of the caribbean: on stranger tides

I was always a big fan of the Pirates films but when I heard they were making a fourth film without Orlando or Keira, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. Like most of us, I’m a big Jack Sparrow fan so I figured it […]

In approximately six weeks, I plan to be in Italy with the boy and some friends for our summer holidays. I’m really looking forward to our trip but the side-effect is that every time I look at an item of clothing, I think “could I […]

(almost) at the movies: the muppets

Do you remember in Forgetting Sarah Marshall when Jason Segal’s character wrote that puppet musical? Well, it turns out the actor actually wrote that himself and the experience gave him the confidence to pitch the idea of a Muppets movie. Aside from Segal and Amy […]

Today’s Friday film features an important life lesson: when robbing a bank (or a Mango store), the best disguise is a mask… of yourself! Mango’s new ad – The Great Escape – stars Terry Richardson (disguised as himself) alongside the ever-gorgeous Kate Moss (also disguised […]

(almost) at the movies: crazy stupid love

The summer movie season is nearly upon us and while there will inevitably be the usual kid-friendly fare and mega-blockbusters, I’m always a fan of the slightly offbeat comedies. Crazy Stupid Love looks like it falls into that category and features some big names – […]
