5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping drama, 29 Aug 2014
Father Jack is a priest in a small Irish town who one morning in confession is given a death threat by an unseen man who gives him a week to live. At first he dismisses the threat but as the week goes on Father Jack starts to realize that the threat is very real and it could come from anybody in the small town. An excellent compelling drama with an excellent cast and Brendan Gleeson gives one of his best performances as Father Jack. Some dark humour in it too and is surely destined to become one of the great British films.

4.0 out of 5 stars The meaning of life, 29 Aug 2014
Quohen is an eccentric computer genius living alone in an abandoned church and given the task of discovering the meaning of life by his boss, the mysterious management. Director Terry Gilliam's latest is a very strange, visually spectacular scifi fantasy film with an excellent performance from Christoph Waltz as Quohen. Not quite one of Gilliam's best films but is ambitious and probably for Gilliam or perhaps Christoph Waltz fans only.

A newly regenerated Doctor crash lands the Tardis in Victorian London and ends up fighting against familiar looking clockwork droids while trying to make sense of his new identity. Doctor Who goes back to basics in the first feature length episode of series 8. No more flirting, no more boyfriend type Doctors, those days are gone with a new no nonsense, darker and older Doctor harking back to the classic series days of original Doctor William Hartnell and 3rd Doctor Jon Pertwee. New Doctor Peter Capaldi is excellent with an excellent debut episode up there with the best debut episodes of any previous Doctor. Jenna Coleman is also excellent as companion Clara, trying to make sense of the… Read more
