He killed two and wounded the third. He also then gave up drinking and the police force. Now he works as an

After the events of Taken life has slowly gotten back to some form of normality for Bryan Mills and his family. But in Albania the families of the men he killed while rescuing his daughter are burying their dead. And vowing vengeance. I really enjoyed the first Taken. It came with very little buzz. It was just an action flick,

The film opens at sea, in a storm. A fisherman hauls in an ornate box and after prising it open finds a baby boy and his dead mother. He and his wife raise this child as their own, loving him just as much as their flesh and blood daughter, whom they bear some years later. We know this because Pete Postlethwaite tells us so. This boy, Perseus, does not know it, but he is a demi-god, the son of Zeus himself. And he is about to get caught up in a conflict between humanity and the Gods of Ancient Greece.

Ignore all the previous films, this is new Batman origin film. And we get it all, from the fall down the well to the parents being gunned down in an alley. There is the training, the gadgets, and a batmobile like you’ve never seen before When I first saw the trailers I didn’t really care much one way or the

Saw Love Actually on Sun evening. Was quite surprised at how enjoyable I found it. Basic plot: lots of boys meet lots of girls and all (well pretty much all) get together and may someday live happily ever after. A rom-com, in many ways similar to Four Wedings or Notting Hill I thought this was a bit funnier than Four
