Spoiler-free Star Wars, Sisters and Snoopy are all on the latest edition of Talking Pictures!
The Force is with the big films for the Christmas holiday, with the much-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens well out in front. And London Mums’ resident film critic, Freda Cooper, makes sure her review is entirely spoiler-free.
Also out this week is grown-up comedy, Sisters, with its stars, the comedy dream team of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, sharing the hot seat for this week’s Big Interview. And Charles M Schultz’s long-running strip cartoon, Peanuts, arrives on the big screen for the first time in Snoopy And Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie. On DVD, the next generation of the Griswold family set off for Walley World in Vacation, and there’s a slice of Hollywood history in The Last Of Robin Hood.
And, in the first half of a two part special, Freda chooses her top films of 2015. This week, it’s numbers ten to six inclusive. The whole show is packed into exactly twenty minutes and it’s available on iTunes, TuneIn and right here on London Mums:
