Never thought I would be quoting Shakespeare on my blog, but with the burden of requiring a fresh title for each post, comes the need to borrow from our greatest Word-smith. Using the date as the post title, is so 1998. Towards the back end of 2015, as I jump in the car to drive […]
I should have seen this film, the film of the year at 00:01 on Thursday 17th December at the BFI IMAX in Waterloo. As already made clear, this was postponed until further notice.
