A film and music orientated theme at MouthLondon’s Media section this week, and we had a bunch of reviews, which kicked off with David Cook giving us a run-down of his experience at this month’s Spectrum party at the Electric in Brixton. The event organisers are fast becoming the go-to people for the best party in town and with some great New Year and Christmas events on the agenda next month, we’ll be reporting on where Spectrum’s next great show will be.
Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s much anticipated new mockumentary Life’s Too Short has hit the small screen and to most people it was surprisingly underwhelming as Chloe McClaren explains in her review of the first episode, which aired last week. Personally I am hopeful that the series will improve as it progresses, and it surely has a good chance with further cameos from the likes of Johnny Depp and other big Hollywood stars.
…a strong year in the film industry and many releases have surpassed their expectations.
Our Top 5 this week concluded Yinks Olumomi’s list of the very best Michael Mann films. With such an immense catalogue of films to choose from it was no easy task, but if you haven’t had the chance yet, take a look and let us know if you agree.
2011 has been a strong year in the film industry and many releases have surpassed their expectations. One in particular which crept under the radar, then burst onto our screens to the delight of many critics and audiences alike, was Drive starring Ryan Gosling. A slow building thriller with a great cast, a soothing soundtrack and some skin crawling violent set pieces, Katie Smith reviewed what will surely be among the top films of the year.
…The Somnambulists; a heartfelt war drama…
To round-up the week we gave you an early review of The Somnambulists; a heartfelt war drama which explores the experiences and emotions of the men and women who serve in Iraq.
