Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, “Far From The Madding Crowd” is the story of Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), a fiercely independent and spirited young woman who inherits her uncle’s farm.  Financially autonomous (a rarity in Victorian times), beautiful and headstrong - she attracts three very different but determined suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor.  


This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions, while trying to maintain her own independence, explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardship through resilience and perseverance.

To the outside world, three people are mainly associated with the extraordinary success story of Aardman Animation – co-founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton, and the acclaimed writer-director Nick Park have all found fame. Yet within Aardman’s Bristol offices and studios, another man enjoys legendary status among employees. He’s known to one and all as “Golly”, but his real name is Richard Starzak, one of the two directors of Shaun The Sheep The Movie. His nickname is due to the fact he was born Richard Goleszowski, a name he went by for many years before changing his surname. He joined Aardman in 1983, and was Lord and Sproxton’s first employee. He initially stayed with the company for nine years, worked on and off for them during a long freelance spell, and rejoined Aardman full-time in 2005.



In his earlier years he worked on Aardman’s landmark series Morph, and directed episodes of Rex the Runt (which he had devised) and Creature Comforts for Aardman. He worked (with Park) on Peter Gabriel’s groundbreaking 1986 pop video Sledgehammer, and in 2007 devised and directed the first Shaun the Sheep TV series, also writing several episodes.

“Golly joined us straight out of college in Exeter,” Lord recalls. “He was always an ideas person first and foremost. His drawings were quirky, his animation was quirky, and creatively he was different from the rest of us.

He was punk, if you like. He came as an animator studio jack-of-all-trades.




“He always had this very strong sense of comedy. His humour was very sardonic, derived from his Polish ancestry. It was British but also Eastern European.

“It was very different from Nick’s humour. Rex the Runt was spectacularly different from Wallace and Gromit. Golly would create these Morph sequences that were quite bizarre. He did a bit of everything -- Morph, TV commercials, pitching ideas for story boards, and an animated part of Sledgehammer set on a roller-coaster.”

“I always knew he was different. To get him to be like me or Nick was never going to happen.”



Park admires the way Starzak took the idea of a TV series for Shaun and made it his own: “He had a strong vision for it and ran with it. It’s been getting an audience of both children and adults. I’ll sing Golly’s praises on that, because it does play to the 8-9 year olds, but it’s somehow got the adults interested too. It’s the wry humour, the cultural references to movies.



“I’ve grown up with Golly in the company. We were both taken on around the same time. We were doing Morph episodes back then, constantly talking about the Beano, and comics we loved as children – the Bash Street Kids and all that. And then he went out and did Rex the Runt.

“The way I feel about my characters is – how do you let them go? You feel that sense of ownership. I’ve never been able to let Wallace and Gromit go. So Shaun has been a great experience for me. I was in the middle of Curse of the Were-Rabbit, so I didn’t have much time to spend on developing the TV series. So what I did at first with Shaun feels quite small now. It’s become a much bigger phenomenon.”

For his part, Starzak has now experienced with Shaun the sense of ownership that Park describes:

“I never really got it when Nick would say Wallace and Gromit had become real to him. Now I sort of understand that. You’ve been fleshing out a character like Shaun for so long, you feel like you know him.”

Burton joined Starzak in directing duties, completing what Lord calls “a double act.” His background is in comedy writing; he has credits in British TV, including Room 101, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Have I Got News For You. Says Lord: “Mark did some writing on Chicken Run for us, then he got the chance to work at DreamWorks (Burton was a writer on the first Madagascar film, which kick-started the hugely successful franchise). And then he came and did a heroic writing job for us on Curse of the Were-Rabbit.



“He has the experience no one else here has -- of mainstream TV and radio comedy, that understanding of how comedy works. We make funny films, but there’s a lot of people out there who do comedy professionally, live or on TV or radio, and if you have any sense you tap into that. So that’s what Mark does for us.”

Like the animators and model-makers, both directors have their favourite characters in Shaun The Sheep The Movie, aside from Shaun. “You find yourself relating to The Farmer,” says Burton, laughing.

“He’s vaguely absurd, he’s put upon a bit, but he’s doing his best.” “I’m very fond of Bitzer,” admits Starzak. “He gets it from both sides. He’s an example of that older brother type, like a go-between with parents on one side and younger kids on the other. He’s a recognisable type. He likes control, he wants control, but he can’t get it anywhere.”



Shaun The Sheep : The Movie is released and distributed by CAPTIVE CINEMA. SHOWING on April 29. NATIONWIDE!
“Hitman: Agent 47” is based on the top-selling and award-winning videogame franchise “Agent 47”.  Directed by Aleksander Bach, the movie centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits 47 on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck.  He is the culmination of decades of research ­and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47′s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.



                The movie was to be starred in by the late Paul Walker until his untimely death came in 2013 and Rupert Friend was eventually chosen for the lead role.  Also starring in “Hitman: Agent 47” are Zachary Quinto knwond for his role in “Star Trek,” Hannah Ware (“Betrayal), Ciaran Hinds (“Game of Thrones”), Thomas Kretschmann (“Avengers: Age of Ultron”) and Emilio Rivera (“Sons of Anarchy”).

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" started grand with the team infiltrating a Hydra base in full throttle. The fighting scenes and special effects were superb and fantastic. The film tries to weave the continuity of the phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of the best way to fully enjoy this film is to have a home-dvd marathon of the phase 1 and phase 2 films before Avengers: Age of Ultron. There have been mixed reviews for the film, probably due to noticeable changes in the characters history/plot against their comic book counterparts.

The film tends to feel a little similar to "Transformers" and the recent "Superman" film on the over-all feel. Perhaps it is because of the several elements that are similar in both films (e.g. Robots, Earth being destroyed, cities being crushed being the heroes battlefield, A.I.)

New villains and members of Avengers joins the team as the plot progressed. There have been new romantic angles and surprising twists on the story. The movie tends to align the current timeline of the recent events from the separate Marvel movies towards the anticipated Infinity Wars.

Though it's still unclear if there would be an X-men and Avengers film cross-over some changes that they did with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver might pose future problems/technicalities.
