Retrospective Reviews

The World’s End (2013) Review - The Cornetto Trilogy came to an end with 'The World's End' (2013), with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright offering perhaps their most underrated film. Christopher Connor reviews.
The Full Monty (1997) Review - A BAFTA and Oscar winner, 'The Full Monty' is "not just a northern comedy about men who take their clothes off". Robert Carlyle and Mark Addy star in Peter Cattaneo's South Yorkshire classic. Annice White reviews.
Blood Junkies (1993) Review - Once thought lost to an underhanded "distributor", the story of how Scottish cult horror movie 'Blood Junkies' (1993) found a release is probably even more interesting than the film. Mark Carnochan reviews.
Billy Elliot (2000) Review - "It’s been twenty years since Billy Elliot burst onto cinema screens, and its portrait of the North East remains just as moving and inspiring today." Angel Lloyd reviews 'Billy Elliot' (2000).
A Field in England (2013) Review - Ben Wheatley's 'A Field In England' (2013) is a film "like nothing else" from "one of the most distinctive, original and prolific British filmmakers working today" according to Sam Sewell-Peterson in this review.
Hot Fuzz (2007) Review - The midpoint of The Cornetto Trilogy, 'Hot Fuzz', finds Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost firing on all cylinders. Christopher Connor reviews.
Sweet Sixteen (2002) Review - Ken Loach and Paul Laverty film 'Sweet Sixteen' (2002), telling the tale of a non-educated delinquent in small-town Scotland, packs a tremendously heavy punch. Mark Cornachan reviews.
Adult Life Skills (2016) Review - 'Adult Life Skills' (2016) starring Jodie Whittaker has "a certain dressed-down appeal" that indicates writer-director Rachel Tunnard "could be one to watch". Sam Sewell-Peterson reviews this film about tackling grief and growing up in your 20s.
