  1. It will be interesting to see how this movie deals with this backstory to Wonder Woman. The recent movie has reestablished her as a feminist icon for young girls but here they'll be revisiting the comic depiction of her. There will be lots of arguments I imagine if Marston is depicted as her 'creator' and she a product of his sexual appetite but I think it will very much depend on how Hall and Heathcote play their parts!

  2. Jamie - how wonderful to hear your contrasting opinion! It sounds as if you were profoundly affected by the series and I have met many people who adored it. I hope you've written your own review! x Review: 13 Reasons Why (2017)
  3. Such a shame it doesn't quite manage it - I wanted it to be so good! Review: The BFG (2016)
  4. Love your videos Tom! I really enjoyed the first Mortal Kombat but then the second film was an absolute mess - hopefully Assassin's Creed and WOW won't be let downs! Video: Top 5 Video Game Movies
  5. Very funny and so true! Teleshopping Is Hell
  6. Ah it was a gorgeous film to watch if a bit traumatic. Could not agree with you more re. Hardy I think he deserves an Oscar too. (Dare I even say more so? I couldn't even see him as Tom Hardy by the end!) Not sure I will be watching it again for a few weeks though - need a bit of a break as I feel like I went through the whole ordeal myself! Which I'm sure is testimony to how immersive it is! Review: The Revenant (2016)
  7. This is just the biggest enigma ever! I tried to watch it and it was too painful. I guess everyone must be watching out of curiosity. Netflix goes nuts for The Ridiculous 6
  8. The BFG will be super interesting I have no idea what direction Speilberg will take it in. And I got shivers watching the trailer for The Jungle Book! There is a very similar looking Tarzan coming out as well so will definitely have to watch both. All of 2016 looking great - may just have to buy my own cinema to save time and money! Fantastic films and where to find them in 2016
  9. I wasn't born in until 92 so maybe that explains why for me it has to be 1995! Kevin Spacey's power duo of Usual Suspects and Seven, Apollo 13, Toy Story 1, 12 Monkeys, Heat, one of the best coming of age comedies Clueless, oh and Usual Suspects AGAIN because it is my fav haha. Shame I was only three when this year happened so I can't say I was let into any of these films at the time except Toy Story! 1984: Cinema’s greatest year?
  10. The film is being made in a completely different time to the previous ones so maybe, as Lucas says, it's okay to be "experimental" and try it without him! I have faith in JJ! George Lucas and Star Wars on different planets
