  • Withnail and I, & I: Growing Up With A Cult Classic

    Over thirty years on, time has been kind to "Withnail and I". It has aged like one of Uncle Monty's fine wines and now graces many lists of the best British films ever made.

    This week Lee Adams, our very own Withnail, I and Uncle Monty, takes a very personal look back at Bruce Robinson's deadpan masterpiece.

  • Leading Lady: Frances McDormand, Three-Time Oscar Winner

    So what is it about Frances McDormand that makes her so appealing?

    With her recent Oscar win, she has now overtaken Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Jodie Foster, Robert De Niro and Ingrid Bergman in the lead role category and who would bet against her catching Katherine Hepburn on four?

    This week our resident movie guru, Lee Adams, takes a look at the career, to date, of one of our favourite actors.

  • Tarantino's Favourite Films

    A few days ago we added an original Italian movie poser for Sergio Leone's seminal 1966 Western "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" to our collection of original movie posters.

    Guess which one was at the top?

    Whilst Duchamp, Dali and Warhol set out to become film-makers (with varying levels of success), one fell in to it by accident, and, almost won an Oscar...

  • The Films of Stanley Kubrick

    In a career spanning forty-eight years, he was personally nominated for thirteen Academy Award Oscars, winning one. His films were nominated an incredible twenty-seven times, winning nine.

    Including a downloadable timeline, in this post we take a look at the thirteen feature films and three short films directed by the incredible Stanley Kubrick.

  • The Films of The Beatles

    Formed in Liverpool in 1960, by the time of their break-up, only a decade later, ‘The Beatles’ had changed the face of popular music forever.

    Those ten frenetic years saw the production of twelve ground-breaking albums (five of which won the “Album of the Year” Grammy), three-hundred and five songs (of which seventeen reached number one in the U.K.) and five films (one of which received an Oscar).

    In this blog post, we take a look at those five films, perhaps the most underrated part of the fab-four's work.
