Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema at the BAFTA awards to going to everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure- the Harry Potter films. We decided to celebrate this achievement by taking a trip down memory lane and working out what was so good, which bits were so bad and what on earth some of it was all about.
“Fantastic by name, fantastic by nature.” This is the tagline used on the Fantastic Mr. Fox posters currently lining every tube station for the film’s opening week. Much has been made of the remake of Roald Dahl’s much-loved children’s book, with indie director Wes Anderson, of Royal Tenenbaums fame, at the helm. If anyone could recreate Dahl’s bizarre, fantastic literary flight of fancy, he could (exhibit A, The Darjeeling Limited).
