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.

The female of the species is more deadly than the male, when it comes to Amy Elliott-Dunne, you don’t get much more deadly, you don’t feel the need more to make sure you never meet someone like them for if you do, you will be devoured, spat out and left to rot and it will be all blamed upon you.

The World’s End, Film Review. FACT Cinema, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, Rosamund Pike, Pierce Brosnan, Bill Nighy, David Bradley, Mark Heap, Steve Oram, Jasper Levine, Reece Shearsmith.

 

Is there nothing that Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright cannot put together that isn’t just pure British comedy gold? For the first fifteen minutes of the latest film to come from the warped and surreal imagination of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, The World’s End, it felt as if though the run had finally come to a crashing and disturbing end. Not so much comedy, not so much a film bought together by some of the most talented people around but the sinking feeling that this was more about a pool of writers and actors finally admitting defeat and waving a white flag but making a tedious journey round of jokes concerning the drinking culture of the U.K.

Wrath Of The Titans. Film Review.

Originally published by L.S. Media. April 15th 2012.

L.S. Media Rating **

Cast: Sam Worthington, Rosamund Pike, Bill Nighy, Edgar Ramirez, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston.

Wrath of the Titans brings back the idea of the big screen epic that the Lord of the Rings franchise enjoyed much deserved success with and with a cast list that some Hollywood and British directors would pawn the family silver to have appeared in their film.
