What's On? 21.10.16
What's on? 21/10/16 It's received middling reviews, but My Scientology Movie at the Cameo cinema at least looks interesting. One of my favourite 'what-the-hell-is-this?' movies was The Sound of My Voice , the film that got me hooked on the genius of actress/writer Brit Marling. I will write about Marling another time, she's worth an article by...

What's On? 13/10/16 I really don't want to watch Shia LaBeouf this weekend. He's intense and he means well, but he's also annoying and devoid of charisma. And yet, he's in this weekend's most intriguing movie, American Honey . This is a road trip movie – and when American road trip movies are done well, they're something special. America, seen by h...

What's On? 06/10/16
What's on? 06/10/16 So, to a review of what went on before; I watched Deepwater Horizon . In Cineworld , it was effective, the cinema's giant high-tech screens ideal for this kind of disaster movie. It was a little unsettling that they so comprehensively ignored the damage to the sea life (we see one floundering pelican crash into a boat as a porte...

What's on? 29/09/16 Following my spending debacle at the Festival Theatre last week – in which I blew my budget on a follow-up cinema visit, on ice-cream, cider and crisps, I have decided that I shall go to the cinema this weekend, whatever happens. Nothing much can happen, to be honest. I've no plans to return to the glories of the Festival Theatr...

What's On! 22/9/2016
What's on? 22/09/16 I have a much better idea of what I'd like to do over the coming weekend, no David Bowie uncertainties for me this time. Speaking of which, following last week's entry for 'What's On?', I didn't follow it up with a review of the Bowie film The Man Who Fell to Earth because – although I did go and watch it at the Cameo cinema – I...

What's on this weekend
What's on? 15/09/16 There is a very good chance I'll finally go back to the Cameo this weekend to watch The Man Who Fell to Earth . I know David Bowie's in it, it's his vehicle, and the fact that it was made in 1976 and I haven't seen it yet suggests I've never been into Bowie. I've never understood how venerated he is. I read a rock n' roll encycl...

What's on? 09/09/16 This is not a great weekend for cinema or theatre; I have to wait until 23 September when the Richard Alston dance company comes to the Festival Theatre (brilliant last year), and none of the films in the city's different cinemas jumps out at me. However, there are options: for a Nazi flick (always absorbing, unless Tarantino's ...
