Austria, 12 points!

The EU parliamentary elections are next week in the countries around Europe, but the most important date in the calendar is not the EU elections, but the annual spectacle that is the Eurovision Song Contest.

Dr. Dolittle 3 (2006)

Film review: Dr. Dolittle 3 (2006), directed by Rich Thorne

drdolittle3While I did say that I wasn’t going to bother watching this after having seen the lacklustre Dr. Dolittle 2, I ended up watching it recently anyway. You know what? It was better than I expected. Which perhaps isn’t saying a lot.

Film review: In Bruges (2008), written and directed by Martin McDonagh

inbrugesAfter I killed them, I dropped the gun in the Thames, washed the residue off me hands in the bathroom of a Burger King, and walked home to await instructions. Shortly thereafter the instructions came through. “Get the fuck out of London, youse dumb fucks. Get to Bruges.” I didn’t even know where Bruges fucking was.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

Film review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), directed by Anthony Russo & Joe Russo

Captain America: The Winter SoldierThis is Cap’s third outing, but the second within a film of his very own. The first film, despite making Richard Armitage part of the Marvel universe, was a bit lacking here and there. Luckily, the sequel is better.

Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America (Chris Evans) seems less traumatised by the event in…
