“Every single one of us, is entitled to the same pay as men.”

Made in Dagenham tells the story of how a group of small female workers in a Ford Dagenham assembly plant decided to stand up and change the world.

A fairly light-hearted film that never really gets out of its comfort zone, however Made in Dagenham is still a thoroughly enjoyable, and educational film on a landmark moment in British political history.

Despite a plea from the cast and crew for Piranha 3D to be considered for Oscar nomination recently, I think it is fairly safe to say that Piranha 3D won’t be getting too close to any awards this season. In fact, I think it’s fairly safe to assume that Piranha 3D is not one of the best films out this year.

It has the gore, it has a remake, it has a sequel, it has the sex, and it has the extra couple of dollars earned for it being in 3D. It knows that it’s never going to leave much of an impression on the audience, except a few cheap laughs. (more…)

We all know it’s a typical trait of women to be immediately attracted to the “It’s Complicated”, “27 Dresses” type films, and to be fair I’m no stranger. “Twilight” is my guilty pleasure, and when I say guilty I don’t mean it at all because I adore the series. This is because the market these films are aimed at is women, because they’re more likely to fall for the characters and the storyline of a fantasy type romance that’s been done countless times. So much research has been done and has found that men spend more on DVDs, so maybe girls, you should have a look around your boyfriend’s movie collection as there are some gems to be found – they’re not all “Die Hard”, macho blood fests.
