Suave, debonair, charismatic and a damn fine actor. Pierce Brosnan has the perfect combination of what makes a great movie star.

This 1961 British comedy is mainly notable for giving Sean Connery an early (co)starring role. The film sees Alfred Lynch star as a Horace Pope, a conman who unwittingly ends up in the RAF during WWII. Pope joins forces with Connery’s Pedlar Pascoe, a well meaning but dim-witted enlister who is eager to please. Pope takes Pacoe under his oily wing, and the pair begin to use their charms to make the war effort work for them, however things just don’t always go their way...

The British thriller has had something of a rough time over the last fifteen years. For every Sexy Beast or Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels is every film starring Danny Dyer. The Liability edges towards the former, delivering tension and some blackly comic laughs along the way.

Your interest in Konga will depend on your interest in old B-movies. If you think that bad acting and terrible effects mean that a movie is simply appalling then I suggest that you give it a miss. However, if you revel in camp performances, implausible plots and men in monster suits running though model cityscapes, then Konga (1961) is the movie for you.

Iron Man 3 retained its hold at the top of the box office. The Shane Black directed superhero film scored $72.4 million over the weekend, a number that would raise its US cume to over $284 million. The Robert Downey Jr movie is closing in on the billion dollar figure at the global box office.

Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is the blockbuster to beat this year. I’m not one for hyperbole, but this looks truly awesome. These new banners (like the rest of the film’s marketing) show class and gravitas.

I will never read E.L. James’ 50 Shades of Grey (or is it Fifty Shades of Grey).
Life’s too short to read soft-core porn that started out as Twilight fan-fiction. That’s no slight at soft-core porn, but it is at Twilight fan-fiction and/or anyone that wants to turn that sort of hobby writing into a book. Think about it, a middle-aged woman decided to sit down to write the continuing adventures of Edward and Bella, added an extra bit of S&M for her own pleasure - then it was sold and published as a novel. I know people who work their ass off at proper writing and somehow that comes to fruition? It rubs me up the wrong way. But that’s probably not a sentence to write when talking about Fifty Shades of Grey.
Anyway, on to the news about the film adaptation (which I might watch), as it may have found a director.
