  • Being James Bond - A Fantastic New Film Available On-Line

    Just released on-line, a fantastic new film "Being James Bond" provides a very candid reflection of Craig's sixteen or so years as 007.

  • The Matrix Resurrections: It's Time To Return To Wonderland

    The repeated references that The Matrix makes to Lewis Carroll's 1865 novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland are unmissable, from the "white rabbit" and "down the rabbit hole" to Neo’s very own "Wonderland".

    It is therefore perhaps fitting that the trailers for The Matrix: Resurrections make so many obvious reference to the earlier films of its own franchise.

    Today, it is time to take another trip in to The Matrix...
