Ragnarok

What's bigger than a giant mythological snake that lives underwater? The colossal feeling of disappointment that this film brings. If you came looking for awesome Viking action then look elsewhere, the Ragnarok DVD cover lies. The ancient and modern worlds both collide when an archeologist uncovers the true meaning of the secret runes discovered in the Oseberg...

American Sniper

If 132 minutes of Bradley Cooper looking moody sounds like your idea of a fun night in, then American Sniper might just be the film for you. Based on a true story, American Sniper is about Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle who's pinpoint accuracy earns him the nickname 'legend' on the battlefield.

Should young girls be trying harder not to get raped?

A human rights lawyer has called for the age of consent to be lowered to 13; not because teenagers are mature enough at that age to have sex, but because she thinks that old men accused of sexually abusing underage girls (or boys for that matter!) should be protected.

The Judge; Death, Divorce and Dementia

A big city lawyer returns to his childhood home after the death of his mother only to become embroiled in a murder case against his father, the town's judge. The Judge is a heartwarming but slightly long winded drama about a man reconnecting with his estranged family after twenty years.
