I'm afraid I can't agree with those people who maintain that George Lazenby is a good actor because he simply isn't. The fact that he hasn't done anything else of note is testament to that. On Her...

It doesn't happen on Tyneside, where I live - at least on those cinemas equipped with screen masking. Too many of the newer venues, however, don't have masking at all, and the newest of the lot - the...

I know that. I said if it could upscale SD material without making it look like a dog's breakfast. The upscaling process fits the SD picture to the HD panel. Some TVs do that better than others....

You must have missed her in 'The Tudors', then, when she played Anne Boleyn. Or in the first series of 'Silk', when she played a trainee barrister. In spite of the American accent she puts on for...

I saw 'Jurassic World' about a week ago. I didn't notice any traumatised children being carried out - but I was sitting near the front, and it was an evening screening. For all that, the four...
