• Film review: Selma – a stirring slice of history that has haunting resonances
"This film is above all a masterclass in the messy mechanics of protest. Dr King, never more impactful than in the pulpit, knows the value of a good show.

"Young Winston was the first government minister in the world to fly in aviation’s earliest days, the first prime minister to appoint a chief scientific adviser and a visionary who foresaw the potency of a nuclear bomb as early as 1924."• Film review: Kingsman – The Secret Service, it's Bond turned up to 11
"Director Matthew Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman deliver a gut punch, rather than a love letter, to the spy genre much as their previous outing Kick-Ass plunged the knife into the superhero movie."
