Discover Something New by Buying Something Old

Discover Something New by Buying Something Old

What do you do when you inherit a shit load of Doctor Who and sci-fi merchandise? Sell it, of course. Which is what I did, and in these times of financial austerity I really had no choice, otherwise I may have kept them. After all, a collectable only goes up in price the longer you preserve it. Fortunately, I had […]

Kevin Smith: Talk show host?

Kevin Smith: Talk show host?

Depending on who you ask, Kevin Smith was never a great filmmaker. He lacks technical skill and never seems to develop beyond his point-and-shoot style. Yet he’s one of the most gifted comedy writers of the last 20 years. Don’t believe me? Go back and watch Dogma. For a while now, he’s been threatening to retire from directing altogether, presumably […]

THE EDITORIAL: 10 Years of Wittertainment – A Trip to the Phoenix

The Phoenix in East Finchley, London, is the oldest operating cinema in Britain. Built in 1910, it is a reminder of a time before multiplexes and blockbusters redefined the film-going experience. The interior maintains an art deco motif, and the same vaulted ceiling still looms over the audience 101 years later. Independently owned, profits from screenings are used to keep […]

THE EDITORIAL: One Day (To Avoid the Cinema)

It’s a bit of a faux pas for a bloke to talk about romantic comedies, but the movie adaptation of David Nicholls’ bestselling book One Day hits the cinema this autumn. Unfortunately, I’m expecting it to arrive with a whimper, not a bang, as I’ve seen the movie trailer and have concluded it looks like it’s going to be complete […]
