A United Kingdom, Film Review. Picturehouse@F.A.CT., Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Cast: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Jack Davenport, Tom Felton, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Laura Carmichael, Jessica Oyelowo, Terri Pheto, Vusi Kunene, Arnold Oceng, Anastasia Hille, Charlotte Hope, Theo Landey, Jack Lowden, Zackary Momoh.

History is made by breaking rules, by defying Government and putting your love for someone above the expected doctrines of faceless mandarins and cowards who will not stand up to racism and prejudice, to intolerance, lies and hate. Love and honour is the catalyst that topples Government and empire and perhaps none more so in recent times than the love between Seretse Khama, the King in waiting of his homeland in Africa and Ruth Williams, the daughter of a former World War Two soldier and somebody who has been tainted by thought of what is supposedly right and proper when it comes to marriages of mixed heritage.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Theatre Review. Everyman Theatre, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9.5/10

Cast: Lewis Bray, Garry Cooper, Emma Curtis, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Cynthia Erivo, Michael Hawkins, Charlotte Hope, Dean Nolan, Andrew Schofield, Alan Stocks, Tom Vary, Matt Whitchurch, Ozzie Yue.

One year on from the Everyman Theatre opening its bright, brand new interior to the people of Liverpool once more, throwing the wrapping of the impressive exterior and the doors being opened wide with a huge Merseyside smile, William Shakespeare returns to liven up the world and let the magic in the Everyman stage run over.

Testament Of Youth, Film Review. Picturehouse@F.A.C.T, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Alice Vikander, Kit Harington, Dominic West, Emily Watson, Colin Morgan, Hayley Atwell, Taron Egerton, Miranda Richardson, Joanna Scanlan, Niamh Cusack, Anna Chancellor, Jonathan Thurlow, Charlotte Hope, Henry Garrett, Daisy Waterstone, Harry Atwell, Nicholas Le Prevost, Nicholas Farrell.

The Testament of Youth is such that it carries more weight at times than the blinkered, narrow-minded view point of a generation that doesn’t see the damage it has wrought.

The Musketeers: Musketeers Don’t Die Easily. Television Review. B.B.C.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Cast: Tom Burke, Santiago Cabrera, Peter Capaldi, Howard Charles, Maimie McCoy, Luke Pasqualino, Sean Pertwee, Alexandra Dowling, Ryan Gage, Tamla Kari, Hugo Speer, Roger Ringrose, Charlotte Hope, Holly Earl, Bo Poraj, Virginia Fiol, Matt Slack.

The Musketeers has become one of those programmes in which to simply ignore it is just not good manners! The squeal of adventure thunders in on every episode and in this final chapter of the series, Musketeers Don’t Die Easily, many traps are laid, various deceptions are deployed by the writer and even if for one brief moment the pace of the action was going to be enhanced by the sound of someone whistling Ennio Morricone’s epic score to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, the story was one that saw the whole creation of this adaptation be seen for what it is, just terrific!

The Musketeers: Knight Takes Queen, Television Review. B.B.C. Television.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 71/2/10

Cast:  Tom Burke, Santiago Cabrera, Peter Capaldi, Luke Pasqualino, Howard Charles, Ryan Gage, Maimie McCoy, Hugo Speer, Alexandra Dowling, Charlotte Hope, Roger Ringrose, Sarah Belcher, Alice Patten, Gabrielle Reidy, Peter-Hugo Daly, Robert Krejcik, Miroslav Navrati, Leigh Jones, Filip Nespor.

The question may well have been asked, “Who will rid me of this troublesome barren queen?”  The penultimate episode of the B.B.C. Series, The Musketeers, sees the four heroic French swordsmen protect Queen Anne from the drunken amorous ravings of her husband who states that she must be murdered so that he is free to marry another woman.

Whitechapel, Series Four, Case Three. Television Review. I.T.V.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Rupert Penry Jones, Phil Davis, Steve Pemberton, Claire Rushbrook, Sam Stockwell, Ben Bishop, Angela Pleasance, Joan Blackham, Michael Fitzgerald, James Woolley, Diane Kent, Charlotte Hope, Ann Davies.

The final case of the fourth series sees the idea of the evil that has been haunting the detective team in Whitechapel fixated on what was underneath the roads, the back alleyways and deep in the sewers. The sewers which take the waste out of the East End and in which a clan of cannibals have started to take the virtuous and honourable off the streets and like time, devouring them and leaving only the memory of them behind.
