Yesterday the Oscar nominations were announced and Ryan Gosling's La La Land practically cleaned up with a whopping fourteen nominations - a record that takes the film on par with Titanic. So, that got us thinking; what are the classic films that everybody needs to see? 1. The Magnificent Seven (1960) John Sturges turns Akira Kurosawa's tale of the Seven Samurai into the stuff of Western Legend. An enigmatic gunslinger rounds up a posse of roguish mercenaries to protect a small town in Mexico from a group of marauding bandits and their leader. Having the villagers build a fortress and train to protect themselves, the film soon becomes all out war before the bandits take control of the village and our heroes have to fight their way back in. 2.

With Bumblebee left to maintain safety on Earth as the leader of the Autobots, the world finally seemed at peace. However, as the latest trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight released this week, we learn that Mark Wahlberg & Co are not as safe as they would like. The trailer begins with the legendary Anthony Hopkins narrating scenes of war throughout the ages, from the medieval battle through to a war torn world of both flesh and metal. Optimus Prime has left Earth and it doesn’t seem long before the wrath of the Decepticons is upon us again, but why? The trailer shows the world seemingly being engulfed by what looks a digital planet (maybe something to do with Unicron & Cybertron) but what is most surprising is the return of Optimus, and what looks to be a fight scene between him and Bumblebee. As with most Michael Bay trailers, it leaves more questions than answers and we’ve become all too accustomed to his usual smoke and mirrors. So why does Optimus come back? What on earth is
