Thirteen years after it was removed from British TV screens, the popular drama-comedy ‘Cold Feet’ will be returning for a sixth series, with many of the original cast signed up.

The re-boot of the ITV series has been rumoured for the last few months after The Sun reported in August that the network had commenced talks with the core cast members. James Nesbitt, Hermione Norris, John Thomson, Robert Bathurst and Fay Ripley will be returning to the series that charted the ups and downs of three 30-something couples, and was often vaunted as the British answer to 'Friends'.

Anonymous Review


Weak
Based on the long-mooted Oxfordian theory about the true authorship of Shakespeare's plays and poems, this film undermines its own point by over-egging the story. An over-complicated script and arch performances don't help the case.

In 16th century London Edward (Ifans), Earl of Oxford, has a passion for writing, which is forbidden by the puritan leaders of the day. So he passes his anonymous work to playwright Ben Jonson (Armesto), who allows actor William Shakespeare (Spall) to take the credit. Edward's life is inextricably linked with Queen Elizabeth (Redgrave): they were lovers several years ago (played by Bower and Richardson), and the political fallout is still being controlled by William Cecil (Thewlis) and his son Robert (Hogg).

Beyond The Pole Review


Weak
With a smart script and an enjoyably manic premise, this British adventure comedy gets off to a great start. But the story wobbles badly in the third act, and loses its audience as it gets both contrived and maudlin.

The uptight Mark (Mangan) and laid-back Brian (Thomas) are university mates who decide to set a world record for the first carbon-neutral, organic, vegetarian, unassisted trek to the North Pole. They set off with their cameraman (Russell), while smiley pal Graham (Benton), Brian's girlfriend Sandra (Cavaleiro) and TV producer Becky (Baxendale) track their progress back home. But they're unprepared to the challenge, which gets trickier when they meet a pair of Norwegians (Skarsgard and Arentz-Hansen) who look likely to steal their record.

And then there are the polar bears.

Ordinary Decent Criminal Review


Terrible
I can only imagine one thing worse than Kevin Spacey trying on an Irish accent, and that's sultry Linda Fiorentino doing the same thing.

Accents are hardly the biggest problem with this movie, though. It's a dull-as-a-Nerf-ball script that makes Ordinary Decent Criminal far less than ordinary. It's almost painful sitting through its rote heist vignettes and endless expository scenes in between them. A bunch of IRA rhetoric doesn't add anything to Spacey's cryptic criminal, who just wants to help out his family while avoiding a fearsome prosecutor.
