Movie Review with Mark Searby

Each Friday at 3:30, we invite Mark Searby, runner-up to Vicky McClure at Nottingham’s Best Gravity-Defying-Hair Awards into the studio to offer his insight into 2 cinema picks and 2 “take home and keep” films…

Cinema :
Ocean’s 8 – Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and co aim to pull off a heist at the New York Met Gala. There’s crossing, double-crossing and humour.
In The Fade – A German revenge film that is unlike your usual revenge flicks.  Subtitles are good, says Mark!

Blu-ray/DVD :
Phantom Thread – Daniel Day-Lewis is his last acting role plays a dressmaker who is dazzled by a younger woman.
Fifty Shades Freed – The last part of the trilogy. Does it go out with a bang?  Spoiler: Spanking of “bangs”, there’s not many of those.

More from Mark next week when we’ll be discussing the subject of movie trailers and how they’ve changed over the years – with some audio clips!

About Charlie Davy

I started off where many young radio upstarts begin - Hospital Radio. I kept my hand in presenting on and off professionally over the years but found that the technical side appealed more to me. I originally got involved with Phoenix FM just after the full-time licence was granted in 2007, presenting Drive and then coming back (on more than one occasion!) for more. Somebody must like me as I'm now back doing the Drive show once again a decade later!
