Live for Films at LFCC: Michael Madsen on getting his eye bit by a snake and pranking Ben Kingsley

I may have had pretty much everything I could lay my hands on, and beg or buy from the video shop, that was emblazoned with Quentin Tarantino’s iconic slow motion walking diamond thieves. This included not only an odd mobile,...

Well, “stars”: he’s the headliner on the box because he’s awesome, but Darkness Descends is definitely...

Blu-ray Review: The LEGO Movie

Blu-ray Review: The LEGO Movie

I never quite bought into the hype of The LEGO Movie when it hit cinemas back in February, but a revisit on Blu-ray has proven more rewarding than I ever anticipated. For starters, it looks divine in High Definition. It’s fluid and bright and gloriously colour-paletted, which makes watching it a total joy. The jokes, too, appeared to resonate and have...

London Film and Comic Con 2014 Cosplay Gallery

London Film and Comic Con 2014 Cosplay Gallery

The 11th to the 13th of July saw the UK’s biggest convention, London Film and Comic Con, kick off for another year of talks, guests, autographs, cosplay and queuing. I did see Stan Lee do a press conference, but as the sound in the panel was so atrocious, I can’t make a word out. Being able to hear anything was a major problem in every panel, and...
