Ford v Ferrari

Read Time:18 Second

FORD v FERRARI, like its man & machine heroes, has some uncorrected design flaws that can tickle buyer’s remorse after you park it, but the drive home is rush enough to justify leaving complaints in the sneer garage and shifting the adrenaline joystick into release mode. In English: if you like car race movies, you’ll […]

Nor is her name: Her parents named her after a homeless man who won the lottery hoping he would feel so honored, he would bequeath his fortune when he kicked the bucket.

You have probably seen his artwork but not known who the artist was.  Louis Wain’s whimsical illustrations of anthropomorphic, large-eyed cats singing carols, playing golf, enjoying plum pudding or just posing against a psychedelic background have elated cat fanciers and others for over a century.  Now, Will Sharpe (TV’s FLOWERS) has brought Wain’s “electric” but […]

There’s few things more annoying than the cinematic bait and switch; setting up the idea of one movie in the minds of an audience, then delivering something else. Sometimes it’s because film-makers or studios change their minds, or sometimes the product doesn’t fit the marketplace; delivering a trailer for Sweeney Todd that provided no hint…

The Benedict Cumberbatch cat movie is better than the Benedict Cumberbatch dog movie, in our view. Not just because the dog movie has no dogs, just shadow that looks a but like one, whereas the cat movie has actual cats, lots of them, some of which speak to us via subtitles, but because the cat […]
