Kingsman The Secret Service review: Heaven is a place on Firth

26 January 2015 1:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Matthew Vaughn; Screenwriters: Matthew Vaughn, Jane Goldman; Starring:Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Mark Hamill, Samantha Womack; Running time: 128 mins; Certificate: 15

'Colin Firth vs Scum'. In an alternate reality, we'd like to think this movie was given that iconic title. Especially as its most joyous scene involves the former Mr Darcy tackling a pub full of rampaging thugs armed with just an umbrella – and without even one of his immaculately groomed hairs coming out of place or a single expletive emitting from lips that wouldn't scowl if you offered them a blank cheque. The Firth doesn't do disheveled or uncivilised, for as we learn from his character - 'manners maketh man'.

Film Review: ‘Soul Boys of the Western World’

19 January 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A vanity production composed entirely of pre-existing footage — producers Steve Dagger and Scott Millaney are the group’s manager and producer, respectively — the documentary traces the usual pop-band trajectory, presenting Spandau Ballet as the most iconic group of the 1980s. Hmm. TV-style and desperately in need of cutting, “Soul Boys” does convincingly position its subjects as key trendsetters, and their most memorable tunes continue to be enjoyable. Unsurprisingly, the film is timed to cash in on reunion concerts, and will be a gift to their fanbase.

The background story will be familiar for those who’ve watched practically any history of U.K. bands from the era. The five members, including brothers Gary and Martin Kemp, were raised »

BBC announces start of production on Doctor Who series 9, guest stars revealed

14 January 2015 12:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The BBC has announced that the new series of Doctor Who has begun filming ready for its return to the small screen this autumn. In addition, they have also revealed a selection of guest stars who will feature in the two-part opening episode.

Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones) is one of those guests involved, and he said: “As a kid of the 1970s, the two shows you always watched were Top of the Pops and Doctor Who, they were unmissable…..I actually wrote a song called ‘Looking for Davros’’in my first punk band and I sang it like a demented Dalek. I got to present Totp back in the mid ‘90’s and landing this role in Doctor Who completes the dream double. Peter is a perfect Doctor and I’m loving every minute of the experience, even the five hours in make-up. What a treat, best 50th birthday present ever! »
