A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.
If it's a good movie, the sound could go off and the audience would still have a perfectly clear idea of what was going on.
Some of our most exquisite murders have been domestic, performed with tenderness in simple, homey places like the kitchen table.
Television has brought back murder into the home - where it belongs.
