REVIEW: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Dir: James Gunn Cert: 12A Release: 28 April 2017 Find me a man who doesn’t love Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord, and I’ll show you a liar. I may be biased because I’ve had big love for Chris for a long time (harking back to his chunkier days as Andy Dwyer in Parks and Rec), but the […]

REVIEW: Logan

Dir: James Mangold Cert: 15 Release date: 3 March When it was announced that Hugh Jackman was stepping out as Wolverine for the very last time, our hearts broke a little – but Logan is definitely more than worth the devastation.

REVIEW: La La Land

Dir: Damien Chazelle Release: 12 January 2017 Certificate: 12A Confession: I love a musical. Give me big dance numbers, catchy tunes, brightly coloured costumes and predictable plot lines over a dreary drama any day. Singin’ in the Rain, Rent, Grease, the Wizard of Oz… I love them all. But I think I might have a […]

Twin Atlantic Gig Review

  Our favourite Scottish band, Twin Atlantic,  took to the stage on Tuesday night to play one of three sold out gigs at the legendary Glasgow venue, the Barrowlands.

Dir: Scott Derrickson Cert: 12A Release date:  25/10/16 When Benedict Cumberbatch was cast as Marvel’s Doctor Strange, a few eyebrows were raised. Could the British favourite make it as a superhero? Or would he just be Sherlock in a cape? The good news is that Benedict takes this role and makes it his own – he […]

REVIEW: Bridget Jones’s Baby

Dir: Sharon Maguire Certificate: 15 Release date: 16 September 2016 As far as Brit rom-coms go, Bridget Jones’s Diary is a true icon. The 2001 hit, based on the Helen Fielding novel of the same name, was a worldwide success, with its follow-up, The Edge of Reason, also proving popular with cinema-goers. But when a […]

REVIEW: Suicide Squad

Dir: David Ayer Certificate: 15 Release date: 4 August 2016 With rumours of re-shoots to make the film funnier, negative reviews flying in from all over the shop, Jared Leto moaning in interviews about a lot of his scenes getting cut and one cinema-goer even suing Warner Bros over the Joker’s lack of screen time, Suicide […]

REVIEW: Finding Dory

Dir: Andrew Stanton, Angus MacLane Rating: U Release date: 29 July Thought you were too old/cool for Disney? Finding Dory’s about to change all that. It’s been 13 years since Finding Nemo made a splash in cinemas, and finally – finally – we’re getting a second instalment of the aquatic tale, this time focusing on Nemo’s forgetful […]
