    What do you think when you hear the word "Hooligan"? Racism? Neo-Nazis? Anti-Semitism? Yes, there’s always been an ugly and dark side to Europe's football scene. But that's not the whole story.

    People forget this now but being a Casual and all wasn't about being politically led. There was a time you could find varying left-wing, right-wing and liberal political views all within the same crews. Tribal cohesiveness was all that mattered — and we probably owe it all to…

    The Football Factory

    ★★★★½

    Modern football has become a paradise for snobs, yuppies and tourists, created by Chinese investors and gambling sheikhs.

    ★★★★★

    First, I'm generally sick of kids in horror. Second, I'm like super-skeptical when a genre flick garners high praise from all-round. So I was quite mixed about this. But in all honesty, VVitch truly deserves much of its hype.

    From the first frame I was entranced by the atmospheric blackness. More than just a horror film, VVitch is an experience: A descent into the darkness. Pure and uncompromised. Ambiguous and absorbing. Simple but brutally tense. Even the soundtrack is stellar…
