The Ultimate Home Cinema

Piracy is slowly killing cinema. That isn't an opinion, it's a fact. Torrent sites such as the Pirate Bay have made it so simple to download recent cinematic releases and enjoy them in the comfort of your own home, that even the technologically...

'Interstellar' - a long movie, but worth the trip?

If we ever had drive-in movies in the UK, they kept it pretty quiet. The whole concept of taking your car into a cinema is very much an American one, and even here it’s dying. In fact, there are only 340 such theatres left in the whole of the...

Popcorn puzzles. The strange structure of movie posters.

I'm no statistician, but I can be fairly sure fewer people are watching movies at the cinema with every passing month. Netflix, Sky Movies, Film 4, downloads and DVDs are all conspiring to keep film buffs glued to the sofa and away from the big...

Nothing to fear. Why horror movies matter.

The most successful film in UK cinemas this week is 'Insidious 2'. Having seen the first 'Insidious' instalment just a couple of weeks ago, I don't think I'll bother with chapter two. The best horror movies are akin to long road trips through foreign...

Rob Lowe just looked right at me!

For me, going to the cinema is often a slightly nervy business. When I go, I go because I like to see films on big screens with big sound how they're meant to be seen. I certainly don't go for a meal of slimy hot dog, popcorn, Revels and Coke, for...

You saw it, right? How could you miss it? Even ITV's News At Ten ran the trailer for 'SPECTRE', the next episode in the most successful movie franchise ever - James Bond. Immediately the world took to social media (or at least the section of the...

'Let's Go Home'. Those inexcusable movie cliches named and shamed.

I don't know whether it's because I'm a writer, but when I watch a movie, the script and screenplay always take my attention. A great concept with a terrible script can really spoil things; likewise a thumping good screenplay can lift an average...

McCann launch the UK's first ever 4DX cinema spot for Forza Horizon 3

Bounce Cinema launches its mission to break new ground for young artists

Cinemas ain't what they used to be, that's for sure. The excitement of a trip to the silver screen to experience thrills, romance, adventure or intrigue has been slowly erased by the banal, sterile environment of the multiplex. Now, the tickets are...

4D Cinema

So you've seen Avatar in 3D and marvelled at the special effects. Let's leave aside that the story itself was banal nonsense for the moment and just agree that, visually, it was pretty impressive. But while anyone over the age of 30 is still...
