Pierce Brosnan In EUROVISION

I had no interest in the upcoming Will Ferrell/Rachel McAdams Netflix comedy Eurovision. None at all. In fact, I don’t think I knew it existed. However, it’s now on my ‘must-see’ list because of its recent cast signing: [...]

First Three Films Announced For MAYHEM FILM FESTIVAL 2019

The Mayhem Film Festival is a cracking few days at Nottingham’s Broadway Cinema. The films which screen at the genre festival are always fresh, exciting and a little bit twisted. I fully expect the 2019 line-up to be more of the same.  Mayhem [...]
