Match Point (12A)Match Point (12A)

WhAT'S that Lassie? There's a boy trapped in the well? Yes, yes we all know the American version of Lassie the rescue dog. But what about the real Lassie the good old British rough collie from Eric Knight's classic novel Lassie Come Home?

Keeping Mum (15)Keeping Mum (15)
12:56pm Tue 6 Dec 05

HARRY Potter and the Goblet of Fire finds the titular schoolboy wizard getting rangier of limb and shaggier of hair. The story's plot has undergone a similar growth spurt the longest book in the franchise making the film more than two-and-a-half hours long.
