  • A Liar’s Autobiography

    Graham Chapman has been mostly dead for 23 years now, but hasn’t stopped his voice reaching out through the veil of time to narrate his own (mostly fictional) biography. Recent recordings of Graham Chapman reading his own book have been remastered to fit this 3D collection of animations as an homage to the great deceased Python. Featuring the talents of the Monty Python team, along with a few surprise guests, A Liar’s Autobiography is a wonderful tribute, even if it lags in places. There is a lot of love for Graham Chapman in this film, and hopefully you will feel it too.

And is it really so unreasonable of Pooh to want a little honey to look forward to? Prepare to haemorrhage nostalgia.


  • Films to see in April 2011

    Oh my shit, it’s April! And it’s brought along not only Fools’ Days, sweet spring showers and the prospect of some chinless wonder marrying a Sloane, but also a batch of fresh and steaming new films – some promising, others less so. Stick around as we sift through this month’s cinematic offerings week by week and separate the fresh fish (FRESH FISH, Glen Coco!) from the distinctly murky tuna salad…


  • Who’s to Play Bilbo?

    David Tennant to play Bilbo Baggins? Maybe, according to a (quickly deleted) Tweet from his (now ex) Burke and Hare star Simon Pegg, who makes more than one hint at Tennant heading to Middle Earth…
