Mother!

Mother!

Mother! Director: Darren Aronofsky Running Time: 121 Minutes   Darren Aronofsky’s Mother! has not been making the kind of headlines that film studios enjoy reading. Lacklustre box office takings and mass audience walkouts have led to something of a lynch mob atmosphere in the entertainment press, with the chance to...

Graeme of Thrones Charing Cross Theatre Tickets from £25.50   Until the 11th November As the cultural behemoth that is Game Of Thrones lumbers towards its climactic eighth season (which is scheduled for 2019, leaving next year a dragonless slog for sword and incest aficionados) it’s easy to forget that...

Feldman Reviews: Logan Lucky

Director: Steven Soderbergh Running Time: 119 Minutes In Ocean’s 11 and its sequels, Steven Soderbergh made the business of robbery seem like a multifaceted lark: part boys’ club, part performance space, part showcase for the pleasures of improbably smooth professionalism.

Queens Of The Stone Age: Villains

Queens Of The Stone Age: Villains

When Queens of The Stone Age first burst into the mainstream with the misleadingly named Feel Good Hit of the Summer (the entirety of the lyrics are a berserk chant of “Nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol!

Chuck

  “If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry’.” – John Lennon Chuck Berry’s last album was 1979’s innovatively titled Rock It; a martyr to dated production techniques: Hail! Hail! Tinny Drums and Ill-advised Keyboard Solos! might have been a more apropos title....

Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant

To say that Ridley Scott’s 21st century output has been uneven is like observing that Donald Trump might be a little temperamental: Only an idiot (or a republican) would attempt to argue that particular toss. In between his few successes (Gladiator, American Gangster and to a lesser extent the Martian)...
