Oxfordshire Guardian: “At The Movies”, 16th November releases

Above is my “At The Movies…” column for 16th November releases, as published in Oxfordshire Guardian and it’s sister paper, Basingstoke Observer. The “Take 2” in the title refers to the fact that I accidentally reviewed “The Master” for the paper on the 2nd November (it’s London release date) as opposed to the 16th (where it is released UK-wide). This edition features a longer review of the film. Also included is a preview of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2”, which was not screening to critics.
