Film review: Terminator Genisys 3D (12A)

I’ve always thought that a generation of film fans show a degree of snobbery when it comes to the more recent Terminator sequels. Sure, Rise Of The Machines (2003) and Salvation (2009) never really reached the lofty heights of cult classics The Terminator (1984) and T2: Judgement Day (1991). But I certainly don’t think they are bad films. Indeed, I ...

The curious yellow blobs are absolutely everywhere, be it starring in TV adverts or featuring in ridiculous memes on social media. Hell, there’s even a blow-up Minion in The Spalding and South Holland Voice office. Having ...

Film review: Entourage (15)

It was hard to watch Entourage without feeling a little bit like I was the new kid at school.
