  • The 10 most unbelievable, most exhausting, jazz-handiest moments from The Greatest Showman

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 16th January 2018

    Hugh Jackman has spent his adult life trying to make musicals happen. Remember when he hosted the Oscars in 2009 and proudly proclaimed “Musicals are back!” even though they weren't, in fact, back?

  • Mamma Mia!

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st July 2008

    If the words 'ABBA medley' conjure up images of Alan Partridge Aha-ing his way through an ill-advised TV duet, then this meticulously-crafted jukebox of disco hits might be enough to change your mind. Adapted from the stage musical - which has raked in over $2 billion in just under ten years - it's a winning mix of feel good flo...
