When famous DJ Alan Partridge’s radio station is taken over by a new media conglomerate, it sets in motion a chain of events which see Alan having to work with the police to defuse a potentially violent siege.
The plot is pretty flimsy but when you have a character like Alan Partridge you really don’t need much of one. The jokes and laughs keep flowing and whilst some miss the mark there are plenty of scenes that will have tears running down your face. Some of the old favourites like Lynn and Michael (slightly superfluous in this) are here but this is all about Alan.
“More than 20 years after Alan Partridge first appeared in BBC Radio’s On the Hour, he’s still relentlessly hilarious, deeply embarrassing and completely loveable.” – SHADOWS ON THE WALL
“Have to say, this is the funniest film I’ve seen in a fair few years now. I’m a massive Partridge fan but these cinema outings for TV characters can fall on their face… this didn’t… I dragged the wife along who’s NOT a fan and even she had tears in her eyes laughing her head off… whole screening was packed and everyone loving it. If you DON’T like Partridge, you won’t like this… simple as that… however if you do, be ready for a fantastic film.” – PUGHEAVEN

Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates.
It is – through director Paul Greengrass’s distinctive lens – simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage.
Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips’ unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.
The film is directed by Academy Award-nominee Paul Greengrass, from a screenplay by Billy Ray based upon the book, A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, and Michael De Luca.
“The entire performance is one of the greatest in Hanks’ prolific, varied career – a role that gives him a massive arc and the opportunity to show great range.” – DALLAS MORNING NEWS
“This is acting of the highest order in a movie that raises the bar on what a true-life action thriller can do.” – ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

In the off-beat action comedy “The Family,” a mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob.
Despite the best efforts of Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert DeNiro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo) can’t help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the “family” way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Chaos ensues as old scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings in this darkly funny film by Luc Besson (The Lady, Taken, Transporter).
“This is a deliberately off-kilter, cheerfully violent, hit-and-miss effort with just enough moments of inspiration to warrant a recommendation.” – CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
“Luc Besson doesn’t really find the right tone to hold all this together, but there’s a certain frisson in watching De Niro’s short-fused Giovanni explode… and you just know there’s going to be an opportunity for Besson to go ballistic, too.” – MOVIE TALK

For one year, Veyre traveled throughout Indochina and the most breathtaking photos were taken after visiting the Angkor temples in Cambodia!
Free admission, all are welcome!
Exhibition: Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm Saturday, 2pm to 6pm
Until: January 03
Artillery Cafe is proud to announce the December opening of "Warped Traditions," the latest installment of its art exhibition series. Join us on December 11, 2013 at the 240 1/2 location as we feature the work of basik 855.
About "Warped Traditions":
Ikat has been woven in Cambodia for centuries, but the skill was nearly lost during the Khmer Rouge. basik 855, a company based in Phnom Penh, aims to stimulate a renaissance of this craft by imparting a modern, global aesthetic onto ikat which is created on traditional warps and looms.
Through a combination of photos, text, and actual production materials, "Warped Traditions" will show how basik 855 and its artisans move from conceptualization, trend forecasting, and color testing to a final design reflecting generations of talent.
The evening also marks the launch of "Heirloom for the Holidays," a pop-up shop within Artillery Cafe.
Serving as an extension of the cafe's wholefood and organic health food retail, the pop-up shop will act as the exclusive Phnom Penh retailer of basik 855 products while also furthering the shared view that promoting local, high-quality food and art products can act as a force for creative and positive social impact.
Last October, six Cambodians went to Korea on a solidarity trip to visit Cambodian migrant workers and the villagers of Gangjeong in Jeju island, who have been praying and struggling to preserve their culture and beautiful environs against the building of a naval base. The Craft Peace Café warmly invites you to share in their journey of faith through a selection of gripping pictures.
