The top 13 beards in 13 Hours
13 Hours, as well as being a sensitive and measured critique of America's role as an interventionist force in the Middle East, draws keenly on the theme of beardedness.

This thing has so many layers.

If 2016's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth
It's a particularly open race at this year's Oscars, which is interesting, so interesting, so incredibly interesting. Could this film win? But what about that film? Does this actor deserve a nomination? Should that actress have lobbied for Lead instead of Supporting? All of these are words that people say that have absolutely no bearing on these stupid posters that I made. Enjoy them by looking at them and forwarding them to your nan.

Star Wars is dead, long live Star Wars

Star Wars is dead, long live Star Wars
The Force awoke a few days later than most for me, but on Monday 21st December, I sat in a small cinema in Hammersmith and readied my body for Star Wars. Sweaty palms? Check. Slightly elevated heartbeat? Check. Stupid grin plastered on face despite nearby proximity of colleagues who consider me an otherwise professional and functional human being? Check. There are have been few cinematic experiences in my career where I have legitimately broken out in goosebumps, but Episode VII was one of them: if a new Star Wars trilogy can no longer be considered a once in a lifetime event, then it's still a rare treat to savour. Excitement, thy name is The Force Awakens.

But then a funny thing happened when the movie started rolling.
