Macbeth with Christopher Eccleston review: Not even witchcraft can save this RSC misfire

Macbeth with Christopher Eccleston (Image: PH) I had such high hopes. A rebooted, modernised and pared down punchy version that clocks in at 2 hours 33 (including interval) that even has a huge bright red digital clock counting down the action? The muscular presence of Eccleston and the divine Niamh Cusack freshly honed from a […]

Christopher Robin, The Guardians, The Festival and more…

‘Christopher Robin’ Review: A Captivating Blend of Whimsy and Melancholy

When I first saw Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are, I cried through almost the entire film. That said, the mixed reception it received didn’t surprise me. Its intended audience — to my mind, at least — didn’t dovetail with the market it was being sold to; despite being based on a children’s book, […]

“A man with no fear” is how Mission: Impossible 2 director John Woo describes Tom Cruise, who laughs in the face of death with each Mission: Impossible sequel.
