Review: The (Slightly Intoxicated) Girl On The Train

Blunt brilliant, plot not so… Reporter: Ryan Elliott | Sub-Editor: Raynor Fry     We’ve all been there. You and a group of friends head to the cinema to watch an adaptation of a well-received book, with an air of expectation and anticipation cloaking all present. Time passes by, and before you know it, the flick comes to a finish. You, as well as others, begin offering critique to one another about what you’ve just watched, and of course, THAT friend pipes up. “The book was better,” They’ll say. How cliché. Here’s the thing though – they’re quite possibly correct. The Girl On The Train sadly became a classic example, and though Paula Hawkins’ book was a New York Times Best Seller, the film struggled for direction and substance from the word go. The film follows

Just a slight plot twist… Reporter: Ryan Elliott | Sub-Editor: Alex Clement If you thought The Fast And Furious movies were all about family, think again. The trailer for the latest instalment of the highly-success film franchise was released on Sunday, with this being the first without the late Paul Walker. Though the emphasis in recent movies has shifted away from street racing, and more to outrageous stunts and the idea of ‘family’ as previously mentioned, Fate Of The Furious has quite the twist.

Just hype, or too far? Reporter: Ryan Elliott With March 4, 2017 now locked in as the date for David Haye’s pay-per-view grudge match with Liverpool’s Tony Bellew, fans can begin to get excited about the night’s action that awaits them. The pair came face-to-face at their London press conference last week, with things perhaps escalating beyond the expected. Following the exchange of heated words between both parties, a fiery head-to-head ended with a push from Tony Bellew, before a swift left hand was thrown by Haye. Did ‘The Hayemaker’ go too far given the responsibility that comes with being a professional sportsman? Hear from the man himself.

How quickly life can change… Reporter: Ryan Elliott | Sub-Editor: Alex Clement Since it first aired on The BBC back in 2003, Traffic Cops UK has gone on to assert itself as a popular late night British turn-to show. Albeit, we don’t lose sleep in the run-up to the release of a new series, but if there’s nothing else on, it’s always there. Now into its 14th series – the show’s focus is simple, yet satisfying to watch. Camera crews follow police in their pursuit of criminals around The United Kingdom, leading to some outrageous footage. We’ve seen drink drivers, hit-and-runners and more than a fair share of other law breakers over the years, but the question stands – what is it actually like to be the antagonist in this situation? We caught up with a young man (who asked to remain anon
