Locke (BRIEF REVIEW)

2/5

The sign of a good movie is to turn a boring subject into a gripping piece of cinema. Be it the commercialisation of oil in the early 20th century or the founding of Facebook, recent years have seen me on the edge of my seat whilst watching films whose subject matter I quite frankly couldn’t care less about. 429 more words

Blu-ray Review: Locke

Starring: Tom Hardy, Olivia Coleman, Ruth Wilson
Director: Stephen Knight
Rating: 8/10

The only face we see in Locke belongs to Ben Hardy’s titular character. It’s a mature, bearded face – patriarchal almost – tired but resolute, attached to a powerful shoulders and a big chest, and the lilting Welsh voice that emanates from it makes you think of a kindly preacher. 841 more words

Blu-ray Review

Locke ★★★

From Stephen Knight, the man who wrote Eastern Promises which I had the privilege of viewing last night, comes Locke – a “gimmick” movie in that it takes place entirely within the protagonist’s tricked out BMW. 1,001 more words

Fuzzy-wuzzy Marquee

Muppets Most Wanted: Three stars out of five — The line between felt and heartfelt gets a little too fuzzy in this half-cocked and largely routine Muppet outing that brings all the familiar Jim Henson puppets back for another round of screwball mayhem alongside stars Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell. 566 more words
