TITLE:               Bradstreet Gate AUTHOR:          Robin Kirman PUBLISHER:    The Crown Publishing Group I love thrillers. I love trying to work out who is guilty and who did what to whom. I especially love thrillers that keep my guessing – and there are not that many of those around.

I have been holding back on writing this review so as to not spoil it for those folks yet to see it, but it’s been a month, if you haven’t seen it yet, you’ll have to just take your chances. I’ve been in love with dinosaurs for about as long as I can remember. What’s not to love, right? So, when Jurassic Park hit back in 1993, I was in heaven. I loved everything about it – especially the T-Rex. And like most...

Director: Steven Knight Writer:Steven Knight Stars: Tom Hardy IMDB: Locke (2013) Starring the amazing Tom Hardy, this indie gem is not going to be everybody’s cup of tea – but I loved it. Just 85 minutes long ( I remember when that was a long movie – ok it’s official I’m old), there is only ever one character, Locke, on-screen and the entire film take takes place as he drives from Birmingham to London. As he is le...
