How to stop The Lord of the Rings prequels (aka The Hobbit parts One and Two) ending up as vastly mind numbingly awful as the Star Wars prequels, with a little help from George Lucas. Peter Jackson be warned- dwarfs, spaceships and politics just do not mix!
And Sophie thought she had a difficult choice. Starring in the prequel to one of the most successful trilogies in cinematic history, or jaunting about with Benedict Cumberbatch in a new series of the truly brilliant Sherlock? Martin Freeman – how on earth did you decide?
A British re-make of a black French comedy, Wild Target is a film that, sadly, never quite hits the bullseye. Bill Nighy, Rupert Grint, Rupert Everett, Martin Freeman and Emily Blunt all lent their hands to this crime caper, with a script never quite lives up to the talent around it. Despite its stellar cast and romping pace, the team are let down by bad jokes, sloppy storytelling and cliche characters.
