TV Review: Skins: Rise – Part 2

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Warning: This review will contain spoilers.

This is the way Skins ends. Not with a bang but with a whimper. Last week’s taut urban drama has basically been replaced by Skins Does Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1. That’s what it feels like in a nutshell. Half of it is Cook, Emma, and Charlie on the run in the woods in a really slowly paced runaround with the episode’s villain that abruptly jumps to a climax. Which, as well as being flawed in itself, is a really disappointing way to pull off the programme’s last ever episode.

Unfortunately, the idea of exploring Cook’s personality post-Series 4 (which was a prominent theme in Part 1 and should be the focus of the whole story) is largely ignored in this episode. The only moments where it gets a look in is where he discusses

'Skins Rise' review: Cook on the run in E4 drama's last ever episode

There was a heck of a lot riding on this final episode of Skins - it not only had to fulfil part one's promise and give Jack O'Connell's fantastic Cook the send-off he deserves, but also round off a series that redefined 'youth' television. No mean feat, especially given the standalone nature of these final films.

As we delve back into Cook's moody mindscape, the bad lad is on the run with the two women in his life - temptress Charlie (Hannah Britland) and girlfriend Emma (Esther Smith). The Cook we revisited last week was already a far cry from the braggart of series past, but on the run and out of his comfort zone, he's altogether different again - a forlorn, somewhat pathetic figure. Even the residents of a docile country pub sling insults his way.

With the trio out of the city and "off the grid", Rise

With Preston slumming it in the division below their local rivals, this grand old fixture is now restricted to the odd cup meeting, in this instance the opening tie of this season's Capital One Cup. Blackpool will look to better their performance in last season's competition, where they crashed out in the first round to Morecambe. For Preston, it's another tricky early-season encounter, coming two days after their league meeting with League One promotion favourites Wolves. Gwilym Mumford

TV Review: Skins: Rise – Part 1

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Warning: This review will contain spoilers

Jamie Brittain does it again. After the last time he wrote an episode featuring Cook (Series 4 Episode 7), there was some doubt in my mind about how well he’d pick up on the character and his story but here he has excelled himself with an episode that’s well-paced and exciting but also manages to have a lot of depth, along with a shockingly dark climax.

But as with basically everything, this episode’s not completely perfect. The first ten minutes are a little slow and the first of the episode’s two sex scenes feels a bit gratuitous and played for laughs, which feels somewhat at odds with the darker tone that builds up later on but those issues aren’t enough to negatively affect the whole episode.

The most experimental part of the episode is Cook’s voiceover

'Skins Rise' review: Jack O'Connell's Cook fights his wild ways

So Effy's in jail, Naomi's dead, Emily's heartbroken and Cassie's shunned a hard-partying showbiz lifestyle for a quieter existence...

It's been over three years since we last saw Cook - launching himself, a flurry of fists, at his best friend's killer - but given how this final series of Skins has been panning out, should we expect to find Jack O'Connell's teen tearaway now drained of his youthful vigour and punk-ish exuberance? Well… sort of.

With its sweeping shots of a buzzing Manchester and a moody voiceover, Rise is as far from traditional Skins as these final films have dared to stray. This first film boasts a dark atmosphere and pulsing electronic soundtrack - stylistically, early comparisons to Ryan Gosling flick Drive are not entirely unwarranted.

But on the face of things, the character of Cook - now a drug peddler in Manchester - hasn't changed that much. He

'The Look of Love' review: Steve Coogan plays porn mogul Paul Raymond

'The Look of Love' review: Steve Coogan plays porn mogul Paul Raymond
Director: Michael Winterbottom; Screenwriter: Matt Greenhalgh; Starring: Steve Coogan, Imogen Poots, Anna Friel, Tamsin Egerton; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 18

24 Hour Party People's Michael Winterbottom and Steve Coogan head from Tony Wilson to Paul Raymond with their latest movie The Look of Love, a biopic of the porn impresario who transformed London's Soho district and eventually became one of the richest men in Britain.

Raymond's story is one of highs, lows, hedonism and personal tragedy. It's a classic tale we've seen done often before, and Look of Love certainly shares DNA with Winterbottom and Coogan's previous collaboration on Party People.

Rises and falls were also memorably depicted in Martin Scorsese films Goodfellas and Casino, but here Coogan's protagonist skirts nearer to the boundaries of what's legal and what's not. He opens the Raymond Revuebar strip club, a private members' venue, to navigate around strict laws on flashing flesh. Lord Chamberlain's theatre

DVD Review: 'Truth or Dare'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ British filmmaker Robert Heath returns to screens with Truth or Dare (2012), a low-budget horror that attempts to put a generic spin on the well-known party game of the same name. The film follows five university friends - Paul (Liam Boyle), Chris (Jack Gordon), Luke (Alexander Vlahos), Eleanor (Jennie Jacques) and Gemma (Florence Hall) - as they celebrate the end of term with a drug-fuelled party. Their antics, however, come at the expense and total humiliation of fellow student Felix (Tom Kane), who's always been somewhat of an outsider.

Truth Or Dare – The Review

By Dan Schindel

The premise of Truth or Dare almost seems like a bad joke, the kind of idea for a movie that only shows up in fiction when mocking lame-brained movie plots. There have been a thousand jokes about innocent games, objects, or animals twisted to sinister ends, but this movie actually goes ahead and makes that its main idea. This is, indeed, about a murderous game of truth or dare. And it is supposed to be taken seriously!

Let.s back up and explain a bit. Truth or Dare follows a group of college-age British kids as they go to a party being held at a remote mansion. The party is in celebration of the birthday of Felix (Tom Kane), an outcast whom some of them had humiliated at a different party several months earlier. One would think this should be a giant red flag, but they answer

DVD Review: Truth or Dare

Truth Of Dare

Stars: Liam Boyle, Jack Gordon, Florence Hall, Nicky Henson, Jennie Jacques, Jason Maza, Tom Kane, David Oakes | Written by Matthew McGuchan | Directed by Robert Heath

I find with British horror, especially films with smaller budgets there is a tendency to stick to the mainstream idea of what is popular. Set up an injustice at in the first few minutes of the film then have a character come back for revenge. Its cliché, it’s over used and to be quite honest it’s boring. The ironic thing is though there is always a hidden gem that manages to shine through, down to some clever writing and actor choices. This is what you get with Truth or Dare.
