Get Santa

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK/US
  • 102 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Christopher Smith
  • Cast: Rafe Spall, Jim Broadbent, Warwick Davis
  • UK release: 5 December 2014

When Santa (Broadbent) crashes his sleigh just outside London and gets arrested, it's up to ex-con Steve (Spall) and his young son Tom (Connor) to organise a jailbreak and save Christmas. Broadbent and Spall are excellent and Scanlan is marvellous as a Trunchbull-like prison officer. An imaginative, madcap and sometimes…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/New Zealand
  • 144 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Written by: Fran Walsh (screenplay), Philippa Boyens (screenplay), Peter Jackson (screenplay), Guillermo del Toro (screenplay), J. R. R. Tolkien (novel)
  • Cast: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Graham McTavish, Ken Stott, Hugo Weaving, James Nesbitt, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Billy Connolly, Evangeline Lilly, Christopher Lee, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Elijah Wood
  • UK release: 12 December 2014

Smaug's on the rampage, Thorin is consumed with greed and war breaks out. The final instalment of Jackson's Middle-earth adventures features moments of spirited action and some terrific performances, but like the other Hobbit films it pales in comparison to the episodes of the previous trilogy.

Wed 24 Dec

Nativity 3: Dude, Where's My Donkey?!

  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 109 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Debbie Isitt
  • Written by: Debbie Isitt
  • Cast: Adam Garcia, Catherine Tate, Celia Imrie
  • UK release: 14 November 2014

The third film in the series sees the kids from St Bernardette's helping teacher Mr Shepherd (Clunes) recover from a donkey-inflicted bout of amnesia. The Christmas story is crossed with the formulaic dance movie, with results that may prove testing to short attention spans. Unnecessarily long and annoyingly repetitive.

Wed 24 Dec

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • Directed by: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson
  • UK release: 19 December 2014

Former museum nightwatchman Larry (Stiller), now a manager at New York's Museum of Natural History, goes to London to rekindle a magical object. Stiller looks bored, and despite some refreshing cameos and the last, shining glimpse of Williams, it's so laboured and lousy it makes you want to punch yourself in the face.


Doo wop nostalgia merchants, big in the 70s, with thinning quiffs these days, tour in celebration of their 40th year together.

Why is it that Neath Port Talbot Council spends millions on building a splendid theatre complex and then installs a website that is 'not fit for purpose'?
How is anybody to learn about the facilities so generously provided?
How can we learn about the plays, shows, concerts, and films that are available at Neath's Gwyn Hall?
Is there a competition for the worst website?
