To celebrate the release of Our Kind of Traitor, based on a John Le Carre novel, we look at the best conception of his work – Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. I promised myself never to talk about the 84th Academy Awards. Not that I want to dismiss the achievements of the Winners involved but the Oscars in 2012 certainly favoured the novelty over talent.

From his independent flick Clerks to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Smith accrued a heap of fans and critical acclaim for his work.

The snarling Big-Lebowski-Oscar-Winning triumphant actor is at least somewhere on your top ten list of best actors. In westerns and dramas, Bridges thrives so all of this spells amazing things for this new film! Hell … Continue reading Hell or High Water – Brand New Trailer!
Ang Lee is one of the best directors around and he has an Academy Award to prove it. (Disclaimer: an Oscar isn’t actually indication of talent, just something shiny and nice.) The director has crafted some utterly spell-binding work from Life of Pi to Hulk (I bet you thought I was going to say Brokeback Mountain!) Now he returns to tackle Ben Fountain’s novel of … Continue reading Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk – Brand New Trailer!
