Movie Review with Mark Searby

Each week on the Drive show, Mark Searby, our popcorn-hating, novelty t-shirt loving movie wizard brings us a selection of films to watch over the weekend…

60 Second Cinema
Of course, we can’t just let any old person into the studio to talk about films – so, we challenge Mark to talk for a whole minute about a film without any preparation.

This week’s random pick is The Fifth Element – orange hair and multi-pass at the ready!

Onto the reviews – first, at the Cinema :
Searching – A computer based who-dun-it thriller – (Abort, Retry, Fail)
Yardie – The directorial debut of Idris Elba about a Jamaican Gangster sent to London.

Blu-ray/DVD :
Ghost Stories – A British portmanteau horror film.
The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society – A delightful British drama about a writer uncovering a story on the island during the Nazi occupation. (and quite possibly the last time we’ll ever say that title!)
