Despicable Me 3, Film Review.

 

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Pierre Coffin, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, Jenny Slate, Michael Beattie, Andy Nyman, Adrian Ciscato, Brian T. Delaney, Katia Saponenko.

Not quite so Gru-some but still very enjoyable with overtones of brilliance; for the lovers of Despicable Me, this third outing of a villain turned hero, his adopted children and arguably one very special group of comedic sidekicks in the history of animation, is still of such quality that the whole family can go along to the cinema and come out with everybody happy and content.

The Eichmann Show, Television Review.

Cast: Martin Freeman, Anthony LaPaglia, Vaidotas Martinaitis, Samuel West, Nicholas Woodeson, Rebecca Front, Andy Nyman, Ben Addis, Caroline Bartlett, Ed Birch, Zora Bishop, Dylan Edwards, Nathaniel Gleed, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Soloman Mousley, Anna-Louise Plowman, Ian Porter, Justin Salinger,

There are moments in history that have damned us as a species. No century, no civilisation, not one era is innocent of spilling bloodshed, but nothing perhaps can touch the 20th Century for the sheer desecration of humanity and the blood of so many children.

Kick Ass 2, Film Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * *

Cast: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jim Carrey, Clark Duke, Olga Kurkulina, Lindy Booth, John Leguizamo, Iain Glen, Morris Chestnut, Garrett M. Brown, Claudia Lee, Augustus Prew, Donald Faison, Danial Kaluuya, Tom Wu, Andy Nyman, Steven Mackintosh, Monica Dolan, Benedict Wong.

Sequels are almost inevitable, especially when the first film outing was seen as something new and exciting to grab the attention of those pleasantly surprised by what they see on the big screen. Sometimes though it may be better to leave the story where it ended, with the credits rolling and the audience giving plaudits. The news that Star Wars is to have yet another follow-on and with no conclusion in sight is one such film franchise, the other unfortunately is perhaps Kick-Ass 2.

Roald Dahl’s Twisted Tales, Theatre Review. Liverpool Playhouse.

Picture from everymanplayhouse.com

Originally published by L.S. Media. April 1st 2011.

Cast: Nicholas Burns, David Cardy, Ryan Cage, Andy Nyman.

To some, the very name Roald Dahl invokes memories of hiding behind the sofa and watching through the gaps of tight, clamped hands and being mesmerized by the sight of lady dancing in flames, as the title music to The Tales of the Unexpected rang through living rooms up and down the country.

Now after last year’s smash hit Ghost Stories, The Liverpool Playhouse once more delves into the mysterious and peculiar as Jeremy Dyson adapts some of the most popular stories from Roald Dahl’s collection and brings them to life on the stage.
