OLLY KNIGHTS: THE INTERVIEW

We here at The Journalix are big fans of Turin Brakes. We're not going to introduce them to you as they've been around since the year 2000, but if you really don't recognise the name I'm sure you'll know their music. Lead singer Olly Knights original

FILM SCENES THAT AFFECTED ME AS A CHILD AND STILL DO

There are many films that we have shared as an audience but go on to stick with us on a personal level throughout our lives. Something that when you see it parodied, intentionally or unintentionally, you instantly think of the original and you can pr...

READY PLAYER ONE

Have you seen it yet? I wasn't in a rush to but events transpired that I ended up seeing it twice within a week. A rare thing these days, but no regrets because it's a romp! Definitely one for a younger audience, albeit not too young - The Shining cr...

THE CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE WITH MOVIE STUDIO IDENTS

You decide to take a trip to the local cinema on a cold winter's night. The sun went down almost 5 hours ago yet it's only 8pm. There's a buzz in the air about the film you're here to see, the trailer kicks ass and the director has shown some rea...

THE MATRIX: WHAT WENT WRONG?

What went wrong with The Matrix sequels? First of all, what went right? Well the freeway chase, as long as it is, is fantastic. Very cool idea with the apparating twins too which played out some awesome scenes. As unreal as it felt that you...

A TARANTINO PLAYLIST (SORT OF)

Quentin Tarantino (cool name don't you think?) dominated cinema in the 1990's and continues to delight with his ground-breaking work and cool-as-fuck films. By now he has a solid boxset of bold and brash movies which are guaranteed to make you sit up...

STOP ME IF YOU THINK YOU’VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE

It's the summer of 1998 in L.A. and some sweaty little man with bad coffee breath is pitching an idea to two Dreamworks executives, each with a cigar between their fat stubby little fingers. Sweaty man: "OK guys, I have a great idea, listen to th...
