T2 Trainspotting Movie Review

The main players that lived through the first film are all back and Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Begbie are as dysfunctional as ever.

Boyle’s technique of injecting scenes from the original work gives T2 a strong and believable link to the past. This continuity does author Irvine Welsh proud.   //   The story revolves around Renton (Ewan McGregor) returning to his old stomping ...

Hidden Figures Movie Review

The story revolves around the space race of the mid-sixties and the contribution of three extraordinary female African Americans.  Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe are outstanding as the three leads and their intelligence and humour illuminates every scene they are in. Their quiet (and sometimes not so quiet) dignity show a resolve few posses.   //   The Space Race as it was called back then really was a race as the threat of communism and the fact ...
