Review: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tinker Tailor Blooming Marvellous


10% cars, 20% Carey Mulligan and 70% Ryan Gosling smiling slowly, Drive is 100% awesome.

How to Stop the End of the World

If you were affected by the issues raised in Melancholia, here's a guide to avoiding the apocalypse.


A heavyweight drama, Warrior is obvious, but undeniably moving. It's a hard slog, but it's worth it.

The Skin I Live In

A sexy masterpiece that excites as much as it unsettles. Demented, disturbing and terrifyingly brilliant.

Crazy, Stupid, Love

The film can't quite classify itself as drama or comedy, but it's the mix of the two elements that makes it all so true.

Yes, that's the sound of me singing in South African as I continue my relentless quest to re-watch all the VHS tapes gathering dust in my attic. This week, the greatest Disney video in my childhood collection: The Lion King.

It's being released in UK cinemas in 3D this week (the trailer's this way) - no surprise really, given how gorgeous it looks in good old low-def, analogue 2D:

Yep. Those furry fuzzballs of happiness made Tuesday morning seem like a happy place, full of piano-playing dogs, banjo-playing frogs and tennis balls with eyes stuck on their heads.


The only thing better than the new posters for The Muppets movie (out in the UK in Februrary next year *grumble grumble)? Our video wall of The Bestest Muppets Videos of All Time (including the spoof trailers - and that Pierce Brosnan sketch from Muppets tonight).

You know how it is. You're walking along, look up in the sky, and suddenly a massive rock is heading towards Earth ready to crash into your face. Quick as a flash, you run around like a nutter trying to find the best way to stay alive and warn everyone else on the planet. 

In between scrawling "THE END IS NIGH" on a sandwich board and running around naked like Kirsten Dunst, you rifle through your DVD collection of movie apocalypses to work out what to do. Armageddon? Deep Impact? What about zombies or natural disasters? Then you realise that you've actually just been watching Lars von Trier's Melancholia, out this weekend in UK cinemas, and that the world isn't about to end after all.

Oh well, at least you've got this handy set of instructions for when the apocalypse actually arrives...

The new War Horse poster has turned up online, all pretty skies and dramatic tagline.

But for those who don't know anything about Steven Spielberg's moving story of one boy (Jeremy Irvine) and his horse, Joey (played by a horse), who is sold to war by his father, only for the boy to follow, it contains a major spoiler...

With the recent release of the trilogies on Blu-ray, it was inevitable that in between the Cambridge Film Festival and Raindance Film Festival, I would find the time to crawl back into my nostalgia hole and watch me some Star Wars. Not the DVD or the Blu-ray release, of course, but the lovely battered VHS I've had since I were a wee geek (or week, for short).  

For reasons which I'm still not entirely sure about, Return of the Jedi used to be my favourite of the original trilogy. So I stuck in that for some quality Sunday afternoon viewage.



The end result? Proper childhood happiness.

Lots of people think that Return of the Jed is the weaker of the three original Star Wars films, but if it is, it's not by much. From the still-rather-stunning Princess Leia in a bikini to the epic lightsaber battle at the end, it's a great, over-the-top climax for George Lucas' franchise.
