Music at the Movies – David Gilmour at Pompeii
10 hours ago
When Mount Vesuvius rained holy hell upon Pompeii on August 24 in the year 79 Ce—the day after Vulcania, the festival of the Roman god of fire and volcanoes, no less—it created one of the great disasters of the Roman Empire, wiping out a city founded seven hundred years earlier.
Fast-forward 1,893 years. Excavations of the old city had begun in the 16th century and eventually turned the region into a tourist hotspot, which is what attracted film director Adrian Maben in 1971. He was looking for his lost passport when he wandered back to the deserted amphitheatre and was fascinated by its ancient majesty and fantastic acoustics. He’d been looking for an unconventional place to stage some kind of Pink Floyd event.
Wouldn’t this be a brilliant spot to shoot a concert film? »

We think it's safe to say that Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 was one of the most highly anticipated movies, let alone sequels, of 2017 - and now that it's finally available to watch at home we couldn't be more thrilled! We've been looking forward to re-watching this one since we first clapped eyes on Baby Groot in the first teaser trailer. The whole crew is back - Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), and our new favourite, Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel). Where the first Guardians of the Galaxy seemed to come out of nowhere and became a huge surprise monster hit, this sequel »

Every Summer needs a good action comedy, and that's just what we got with The Hitman's Bodyguard.
Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson make for a perfect pair in this film where Jackson plays an assassin who is being protected by one of the world's former best bodyguards (Reynolds). However, these two have a past, making their newfound friendship nearly impossible.
Here are five reasons to see this Summer's hit action-comedy, The Hitman's Bodyguard!
The Hitman's Bodyguard takes place across Europe, but most notably in Amsterdam. Watching Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson banter, fight, and go on crazy car and boat chases is already awesome, but set among the beautiful canals of this city, it's even better.
Just as we were saying, there are some awesome stunts in this film, »

Playing with toys, in a way, is like making your own movie.
As a child, there's a strong chance you used to create your own universes and narratives with some of your favourite toys. Whether it was with Barbie Dolls, Hot Wheels, Mr. Potato Heads or My Little Ponies, you got to choose the story, giving these inanimate objects their own voices and dialogues.
That's probably why toys are such an easy subject to turn into a movie. These are characters and beings that were literally meant to tell stories, and we've seen this on the big screen time and again.
This fall, My Little Pony: The Movie is coming to theatres, and while some of us are nostalgic for those colourful little horses, there are now new generations »

Sports movies are a dime a dozen these days, but not all of them are able to claim the highly-coveted title of true stories. Battle of the Sexes is one such lucky film, as it tells the very true tale of the rivalry between tennis stars Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Emma Stone and Steve Carell star in this ‘70s-set story of competition, commitment, and conviction.
There are plenty of other sports movies based on true stories that we love, and we’ve made a list to put all of our faves in one place. A wide variety of sports are represented here, with movies about baseball, football, wrestling, horse racing and more getting entries on our list.
