Movie review - Get Duked! (2019)

In its own slippery game of generational cat and mouse, Doff's film is one that brazenly revels in absurdity; unashamedly committing to increasingly implausible sub-plots involving bread thieves, dim-witted police prejudice and the sharpness of forks.

Review: Pointless Whisky Galore remake lacks in spirit

A great cast alone does not a good film make as this all-too-gentle and rather pointless retread of Alexander Mackendrick's 1949 Ealing classic showcases.

Whisky Galore - review

Many, myself included, will balk at the idea of a remake of this classic film believing it really shouldn't be tampered with. However director Gillies MacKinnon has wisely decided to stick with the winning formula and has merely updated it seemingly by flicking a switch which has transformed it into colour.

Stag: episode 2 review

As with the last episode, the best thing about this episode is the characters, who are at first are mostly unlikable, but as their crisis grows you understand that each has their own problems.

TV review: Stag, BBC2, episode 2

I'm not sure how much it qualifies as a comedy now that it has got proper scary, but I'm really enjoying Stag.
