So, what would this look like? I must admit, at this stage, thinking about it, I have absolutely no idea. Obviously they could head off and explore the worlds of other 00 characters, or even some of the background characters in the Craig movies, but surely for »

A Man Called Ove review: Dir Hannes Holm (2017)

26 June 2017 12:17 AM, PDT

A Man Called Ove review

A Man Called Ove opens with the titular Ove (Rolf Lassgård) at his lowest ebb. Six months previous, his loving wife, Sonja (Ida Engvoll) died of cancer and now he has just been let go from his job of 43 years in a very unceremonious manner. It is this moment that brings him to the decision to take his own life and join his wife. If is a rather morose opening, but like the main character himself, the stoic, hard exterior soon breaks away to reveal a film that has an enormous heart and a neighbourhood of characters that Ove and you will come to greatly care for.

Throughout Hannes Holm’s adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s novel, a dark streak of wit persists as we witness Ove’s numerous failed attempts at ending it all. Each attempt is used as a catalyst for an extended flashback, »

Home Entertainment review: The Hippopotamus

26 June 2017 12:01 AM, PDT

Director: John Jencks

Starring: Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Fiona Shaw, Tommy Knight, Tim McInnerny, Russell Tovey, Emily Berrington

Stephen Fry is a national treasure in our part of the world and to a certain extent across the globe. What’s less well-known is his output as a novelist, but director John Jencks hopes to redress that with an adaptation of the author’s 1994 comedy.

Roger Allam stars as Ted, a washed-up poet who’d rather spend his time wallowing in a bath off his face on whiskey than interacting with the world around him. He is the hippo of the title, roaming around with an ungainly wit. This behaviour threatens to ruin him once and for all after he gets verbal at the theatre in the process of writing a review for a pretentious show. Dumped by his employers, he is unexpectedly picked up by Jane (Emily Berrington), a terminally »
