The Interview with Seth Rogen and James Franco
Film review by Steve Bennett
29/12/2014 … So this, of all things, is what escalated the West’s standoff with the terrifying North Korea? The Interview is a predictably dumb piece of Tinseltown brain-candy that would have slunk quickly into obscurity had Kim Jong-Un not thrown his toys out of his pram.

A Christmas Tail: The 2014 Weirdos panto
