Review | Room

Not My Cup of Tea | Dragon Blade

In our first episode in a new series we’re out of the studio and into the comforts of home – with sofas, tea, and Adrian Brody.

Review | Spotlight

The gang discuss the new bio-pic about the pulitzer prize winning work to initially break the catholic priest child sex scandal.  

Review | Brooklyn

Jack and James look at the rather charming mellow-drama Brooklyn.

Review | Trumbo

While competently made and more than competently acted (largely thanks to Cranston), the film fails to stand up with the multitude of biopics released in recent years.

Review | Carol

It’s very rare that a film can be described as luscious, but Carol certainly fits that description. A tender story that blurs emotional openness, repression, and longing.
