When nine-year-old Rob Cole (Tom Payne) feels the life force slipping from his mother’s hand upon her death he is unaware that his gift of sensing impending death would lead him from 11th Century England to a medical school at Ispahan. At a time when Christians are banned from becoming a student at the school, Cole disguises himself as a Jew to become famed physician Avicenna’s (Ben Kingsley) student.

‘The Voices’ Review

Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Jacki Weaver, Anna Kendrick, Ella Smith, Paul Chahidi, Stanley Townsend, Adi Shankar, Sam Spruell, Valerie Koch, Paul Brightwell, Alessa Kordeck | Written by Michael R. Perry | Directed by Marjane Satrapi

In the smallest of small towns, Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is the enthusiastic, socially awkward newbie in the packing division of a bathroom manufacture. Behind this innocent facade lurks a dormant, damaged mind waiting for a spark.

Work brings Jerry in contact with the office hottie – Fiona (Gemma Arterton). However, she’s evidently way out of his league. A point he discusses at home with his talking pets: the loyal dog Bosco and angry, scottish cat Mr Whiskers. This is a brilliant, underhand way to introduce Jerry’s illness. Reynolds plays it straight to get the most comic effect out of: Bosco, who always tries to convince Jerry he can be a good man; and Mr Whiskers

24: Live Another Day – Episode 12 Review

A teary Scott Davis reviews the finale to 24: Live Another Day…

After eleven weeks of nail-biting tension, dramatics, explosions, political stand-offs and terrorist threats, 24: Live Another Days has finally reached it’s explosive finale. Zooming across London Town across a 12-hour day (well, actually 24-hours), Lad has if nothing else reenergized and refreshed the show with a newfound gusto and delight. There is nothing better on television that seeing Kiefer Sutherland engage in full-on Jack Bauer: shooting, blasting and fighting through anyone who dares get in his way.

It has been quite the journey for the guys and girls involved with the story of Lad. Faced with unspeakable odds against drone attacks, devices that can aide terrorism, treason, and inter-government politics, it’s been classic 24, and it is with great sadness that this may well be the definitive final chapter in the life of Jack Bauer. Or, maybe not…
