Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Just when I thought it had been a refreshingly long time since Hollywood went delving in to the buckets of the past to bring us a new shiny reboot, director Jonathan Liebesman breaks the ceasefire with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The turtles were a phenomenon that somewhat passed me by as a child, I certainly watched…

Though juggernaut studios such as Disney, Pixar and Dreamworks have an almost monopoly like grip on the world of successful English language animation features, since 2009 there has been an emerging and growing competitor in the form of American production company Laika.

Pride (2014)

As a Brit who was born in the late eighties, my early childhood was surrounded by the tail end and aftermath of the Margaret Thatcher administration, a period in modern British history that could be argued to have been the most divisive in the last fifty years. Perhaps the most defining aspect of the Thatcher years…
