Clique Series 1 – Review by Kris Scott

**SPOILERS**

The Scottish drama that you probably didn’t know about created by the talented former p06qh2jp‘Skins’ writer Jesse Brittain.

‘Clique’ follows Holly McStay played by a relatively new comer called Synnøve Karlsen (When you watch this show you’d think she’s been doing this for ages).

One day they go into a lecture led by the charismatic Jude McDermid and her brand of feminism lures both Holly and Georgia to discover more.

Halloween (2018) – Reviewed by Kris Scott

Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis): He is a killer. But he will be killed tonight.

Halloween (2018) was an unexpected hit, I went into the cinema with low expectations due to the previous instalments which for me destroyed this franchise created by horror mastermind John Carpenter those forty years ago.

The Wedding – by Sonny Donald

Andy Gemmel was content, everything was going well, no hitches. He leaned on the bedroom windowsill and looked out, it was a glorious day, God was on his side. He was best man at his best friends wedding, which was due to take place in three hours. He had organised the stag night last night and had ensured Jimmy was returned home safe and sound, they had a boisterous evening with sing songs and a lot of ribald chat. He had ensured Jimmy was not chained to a lamppost  or put on a train to Edinburgh, he had been very responsible he thought rather smugly. He had stayed at Jimmy’s house last night, to ensure there were no last minute disasters. He had checked that the taxi’s would arrive on time and phoned Brenda’s house to make sure everything was alright at that end. The bridesmaid informed him Brenda was nervous and rather giggly, but they would ensure everything went like clockwork.

The Last Fan – by Sonny Donald

Clifford Percival sighed as he looked forlornly at the telephone, it had been a long time since it had rung, a very long time. He recalled when his phone was never silent, agents, directors and producers all wishing to speak to him. His eyes moved to the mirror, turning side on he noticed a small paunch, taking a deep breath he grunted with satisfaction as it disappeared. He held his breath for as long as possible, then exhaled noisily and watched the paunch reappear. He looked at his left profile, not bad, not bad at all. This was always his best side, the cameras loved this side, he was sure that he could pass for forty, with a bit of judicious lighting and a touch of make up.

Outlaw King (2018) – Review by Kris Scott

** SPOILERS**

James Douglas (Aaron Taylor-Johnson): I serve Robert Bruce; join us to free our land.

Outlaw King begins with the beautiful shot of a candle burning which I believe is symbolic in the way it represents the continuing fire burning within the Scottish people to revolt against the occupying English army.  This symbol could be likened to the context of Scottish Independence today in modern politics with Scotland’s candle still burning…..

But I’m not here to talk about that! Lets get to it!
