Book Review: Before & After by Matthew Thomas

Posted on by 5WC in Book

They say never judge a book by it’s cover, but sometimes you just have to break the rules and do it anyway. I have owned Before & After by Matthew Thomas since I first set eyes upon it’s confused embossed sheep, many, many years ago. 15 years in fact. And in the intervening time, it has …

Film Review: Exodus: Gods And Kings

Posted on by 5WC in Film

When it comes to the royalty of directors capable of bringing to life epic story lines and recreating worlds, events and imagery on a scale beyond anything imaginable, then there are only a handful of names that instantly spring to mind: Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, James Cameron and Ridley Scott. And so, a few months …

Film Review: Life Of Crime

Posted on by 5WC in Film

Let’s be honest, the only thing that drew me to this film was the inclusion of Jennifer Aniston, and that mainly because as a child who spent his teenage years living through the 1990s, she will be forever Rachel. And while in one respect it amazes me, it also doesn’t surprise me that none of …

Posted on by 5WC in Film

It seems strange to me to be sitting down, writing a review, about a documentary detailing arguably the world’s most famous film reviewer. Roger Ebert. A man who essentially defined his industry and created his genre. Ebert redefined film reviewing into a simple formula – yes or no: is this film any good? Roger Ebert …

The Possibilities Are Endless

Posted on by 5WC in Film

Like a lot of people I am sure, I have heard of Edwyn Collins and I can name one song. Girl Like You. After that, everything becomes a blur. I can’t tell you exactly what time frame his career spans, or name an album he made. But I remember the musician fondly simply because of …

Film Review: Trees Lounge

Posted on by 5WC in Film

I’ve been a huge fan of Steve Buscemi ever since I first saw him attempt a best man speech, drunk at a wedding. And when you follow that up with a manic turn, riding bareback on a nuclear warhead, it’s an impressive way to demand cinematic attention. Let alone then providing the perfect definition of …

Posted on by 5WC in Stage

Every family has their own Christmas traditions, whether it be the post lunch board game, or having to be dressed before you can open your presents, these annual routines help ensure the time of year continues to feel magical and special.
