    Would anyone with a sun subscription be kind enough to check if there are still tickets available for the man from uncle in York?

    Think I will sign up for a pound if there are some left!

    I "reserved" 2 at York just moments ago ...

    ... but cancelled rather than confirmed the booking.

    I got tickets for Trainwreck tonight (http://www.showfilmfirst.com/service/ticket_checkout.php?ticket_code=492728), couldn't see any specific requirements at first but when I just printed off the ticket I noticed it said the following:

    Terms and conditions This is a Heat Magazine Preview. A copy of the page in Heat Magazine is required to validate ticket. No photocopies.

    Does anyone know if they're really fussy with that? Don't know how I'd get my hands on the magazine now. I wish there had been a warning in the first place that it's only for magazine readers! :(

  • Here's my review of 'Trainwreck':

    I'm not usually the biggest fan of Judd Apatow films, finding them heavy handed and over-reliant on scatological and sexual crudity - but Trainwreck was genuinely funny, engaging and believable in its wry portrayal of the minefield that is 21st century relationships. It was warmly received by the audience I saw it with, and raised many laughs - but I have to say the sad parts were equally affecting. Better than I thought it would be, between the wisecracks!

    Amy Schumer won't ever win actress of the year (and the cheesy pre-recorded plea to the review crowd got the bird from me), but she acquitted herself adequately, being best (as we would expect) on the stuff taken straight from her stand-up comic repertoire. The strength of the film lay elsewhere - in the cracking supporting cast. Brie Larson ,as Amy's sister, acted her off the screen in every scene together - give that woman a better part! I particularly enjoyed the star turn from Tilda Swinton, who slyly turned herself, chameleon-like, into a wicked parody of Kate Moss, as a narcissistic, foul-mouthed, bullying magazine boss. Superb! And it was nice to see Ezra Miller as the over-eager intern Amy tangles with. Both actors were poles away from their performance together in ‘We need to talk about Kevin’, and really demonstrated their range.

    Rather strangely, for an Apatow film, I felt that the male characters were less well defined and more like ciphers. Bill Hader, as the romantic interest, was nice but not really that impressive – and the big sports star ‘friends’ and ‘celebrities’ were too obvious and one-dimensional. As was the ‘film within a film’ starring Daniel Radcliffe! I’m still wondering why those scenes were included, other than to say, ‘look! We’ve got Harry Potter on the credits!’. I did like this film though, it made me laugh and also got to me on the sadder moments. I will definitely recommend it as a ‘go-see’.
