[Note: With the film hitting digital outlets next week, here’s a reposting of our review on Madness in the Methos, from the films UK debut at Frightfest last year]

Playing an alternative version of his persona, and tired of Hollywood’s perception of him, Mewes embarks on a quest to reinvent himself as a serious actor. Upon advice from his best friend Kevin Smith, he tracks down a secret book outlining all the mysteries of the Method Acting process with disastrous consequences.

Whilst Madness in the Method may feature Jason Mewes playing an alternate version of his own persona, it doesn’t stop Mewes’ film from being something of a retrospective on his real-life career And life; perfectly blending truth and fiction, life and movie, in a way that makes this film akin to the likes of JFK, American Animals and

New Trailer for 'Agatha and the Truth of Murder' Starring Ruth Bradley

New Trailer for 'Agatha and the Truth of Murder' Starring Ruth Bradley
"No offense, but none of you lot look like the killing type." Vision Films has unveiled the official Us trailer for an alternative history drama about crime writer Agatha Christie getting embroiled in a real-life murder case during her 11-day disappearance in 1926. The film is titled Agatha and the Truth of Murder, and originally premiered on TV in the UK in late 2018. It's not slated for release in the Us in the fall of this year. With a script by Tom Dalton (The Pharmacist), set in 1926, the film depicts Agatha Christie investigating the murder of Florence Nightingale's goddaughter and how her involvement in this case then influenced her writing. Ruth Bradley stars as Agatha Christie, with a cast including Dean Andrews, Bebe Cave, Amelia Dell, Richard Doubleday, Derek Halligan, Blake Harrison, Pippa Haywood, Stacha Hicks, and Ralph Ineson. It looks suitably mysterious and alluring, no doubt. Here's the official trailer

Worst holidays in cinema – ranked!

As Spider-Man: Far From Home and Midsommar bring the well-worn trip-gone-wrong back to the big screen, here are 20 of film’s most appalling vacations

The sequel to the film of the sitcom, The Inbetweeners 2 bravely wrestles with the question of which is more revolting, a faceful of someone else’s urine or a faceful of someone else’s faeces. Judging by all the vomiting that Will (Simon Bird) does after he receives the latter, the answer is faeces. But that’s not all the Brits abroad have to put up with in Australia. Neil (Blake Harrison) kills a dolphin, Simon (Joe Thomas) gets beaten up, and when their car runs out of fuel in the fiercely hot outback, it looks – for two whole hours – as if they will all die of dehydration.

TV Review: ‘A Very English Scandal’

TV Review: ‘A Very English Scandal’
“We are nothing but a pair of old queens,” Hugh Grant tells his dining companion in the House of Commons near the start of Amazon’s new limited series “A Very English Scandal.” The frankness is startling given what we know about Grant, the leading man in any number of straight romantic comedies. And it comes to seem yet more striking as Grant’s character, the real-life member of Parliament Jeremy Thorpe, obfuscates endlessly about his desire through the series’s three-hour running time. He’s rarely ever open about desire, treating it as an embarrassing biological fact to be sated on brief hiatuses from heterosexual life.

The series, which first aired overseas on BBC One in May and comes to Amazon June 29, comes by its title honestly. U.K. talent (including director Stephen Frears and stars Grant and Ben Whishaw) suffuse the proceedings with a curious reticence, an enigmatic

The eagerly anticipated match took place at a packed out Old Trafford which saw the highest ever Soccer Aid for Unicef attendance – a whopping 71,965 people turned up to watch the match. The match ended in a nail-biting penalty shoot-out with England beating the World XI 7-6 in a sudden death contest with Blake Harrison scoring the winning penalty.
