Lead singer from Ladytron in a solo effort.
Lead singer from Ladytron in a solo effort.
Alfie Wickers (Jack Whitehall) has taken Class Form K on a school trip to Amsterdam. Unbeknownst to him, Mitchell (Charlie Wernham) had spiked his Crepe with magic mushrooms, causing Alfie to hallucinate, thinking Jing was a panda and was convinced that the Anne Frank dummy was alive, causing him to steal it from the museum (parodying ET) and ends up in a canal.
One year later, the PTA led by Joe’s mum, Susan Poulter, insists that Alfie gets sacked from the school, but Martin Wickers (Harry Enfield) Fraser (Mathew Horne) and Rosie (Sarah Solemani) insist that Alfie is given another chance and that they conduct a surprise visit to the class room. They are unaware that Mitchell tried to do a tattoo on Alfie’s back labelled “CLASS K FOREVER” but only manages “CLA” instead. They burst into his classroom during a game of class wars, which ends with an unfortunate incident with Mrs. Poulter and the class hamster.
Alfie informs the children that they are going on a trip to Cornwall, and he reminisces on a trip to ‘Shagaluf’ with his teenage friends.
Although not quite reaching the heights of the amazing TV series this film is a great laugh. Never before have testicles and swans been so funny. Probably very offensive to anyone Cornish.

|The Hunger Games
After Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire, accepted the role of the Mockingjay, the symbol of rebellion against the autocratic Capitol, she and the rebels of District 13 poises an all out war against them. However, this time Katniss has a personal agenda: assassinating President Snow herself to gain revenge not only for Panem’s sake, but for her own as well
I really enjoyed the Hunger Games Trilogy(!), both the films and the books but do feel the last two instalments would of been better off as one film. There is a lot of talking and slow moments that appear there just to fill time. Still a worthy watch though

|Portsmouth||4 – 0||Notts County|
Pompey roared back into form and ensured it was a very Good Friday with a convincing victory over Notts County at Fratton Park.
Kyle Bennett struck either side of the interval, with a couple of goals that were extremely easy on the eye.
Christian Burgess then opened his account for the club before Marc McNulty came off the bench to add an extra gloss to the scoreline.
Paul Cook made four changes from the side that drew at Mansfield the previous week.
Paul Jones was recalled from his Crawley loan to replace Ryan Fulton – who had been called up to the Scotland under-21 side – between the sticks.
There were also starts for Gary Roberts, Adam McGurk and Matt Clarke, with McNulty, Kal Naismith and Adam Webster dropping to the bench.
Before kick-off there was a minute’s silence in memory of former Pompey left-back Jack Mansell – who passed away last week – and the victims of the attacks in Brussels.
When the game got underway, the hosts made a bright start to match the fine conditions on the south coast.
And Michael Bull earned the ire of the Fratton faithful for not awarding their side a penalty after just a three minutes.
It looked a clear foul from Haydn Hollis on Ben Davies as the right-back charged into the box, but the referee was not convinced.
However, the first half was ultimately a scrappy affair, with plenty of fouls interrupting the flow of the game.
Stanley Aborah collected the first booking for a late challenge on Michael Smith, not that it stopped the midfielder from getting involved in a few more dubious challenges.
There were not too many shots to trouble either of the goalkeepers, with Curtis Thompson seeing his dangerous run eventually halted before McGurk sent a header over the bar.
It was Roberts who had the first decent chance from the edge of the box on 34 minutes, but his effort flew comfortably into the arms of Scott Loach.
Pompey did break the deadlock just before the break, however, thanks to an impressive solo goal from BENNETT.
The winger collected Enda Stevens’ pass down the left and beat Elliott Hewitt with ease before cutting inside and firing past Loach.
Half Time: Pompey 1 Notts County 0
The hosts probably should have doubled their advantage just after the restart, but McGurk somehow failed to connect with Davies’ free-kick from wide on the right.
But their second goal did arrive on 49 minutes – and it was a joy to behold.
Roberts displayed a moment of class to send BENNETT clear through and he calmly slotted the ball past Loach and into the net.
And Roberts then tried to add an audacious third with a cute lob from wide on the right that drifted narrowly over.
But the visitors were almost gifted a way back into the game on the hour mark when Jones dropped Curtis Thompson’s cross, only to pounce on the ball before Jon Stead could poke it home.
Pompey were soon back on the attack, though, and it took a brave block from former England international Alan Smith to deny his namesake Michael.
Cook made his first switch on 67 minutes, with the tiring McGurk making way for Naismith out wide.
With a comfortable lead, it was a more patient display from the hosts, but they still looked the more dangerous side.
And the home fans did have a third goal to cheer on 81 minutes when BURGESS converted Enda Stevens’ cross from close range to open his Blues account.
That was the cue to bring on Conor Chaplin and McNulty for the impressive duo of Smith and Roberts.
And it was McNULTY who wrapped up a memorable victory in stoppage-time when he headed Davies’ free-kick into the top corner.
Pompey (4-2-3-1): Jones; Davies, Burgess, Clarke, Stevens; Hollands, Doyle (c); McGurk (Naismith 67), Roberts (McNulty 84), Bennett; Smith (Chaplin 84)

Pompey have signed Conor Wilkinson on loan from Bolton until the end of the season
The 21-year-old striker – who will wear the number 25 shirt during his time at Fratton Park – would be eligible to feature in any play-off matches.
But he will not be able to appear in the Blues’ Easter clashes with Notts County and AFC Wimbledon as he is currently away on international duty with the Republic of Ireland under-21 side.
Wilkinson has recently finished a stint on loan with fellow League Two side Newport and played at Fratton Park when the Welsh side won 3-0 earlier this month.
He made 12 appearances for County and has previously spent time with Torquay, Oldham and Barnsley.
After the recent failure of the M-Audio Keystation 49e the time had come to replace it.
No wanting to risk another of the same make I went instead for the Alesis Q49 (the black colour sold it). So far I have no complaints and it has worked and connected perfectly. The keyboard has a better, softer feel than the rather clanky M-Audio.
As I also moved a few of my rack units from under the computer and placed under the Roland JX-3P it was also advantageous to get another rack mixer, spent more than I normally would on a Samson SM10 instead of the usual Behringer RX1602. I have also got a Samson PB10 to supply the power.
|Mansfield Town||1 – 1||Portsmouth|
Tafazolli own-goal secures Blues a point
Marc McNulty missed a penalty as Pompey fought from behind to claim a point at Mansfield.
It looked bleak for the Blues when, within the space of a few minutes, McNulty saw his spot-kick saved and Matt Green slotted the hosts ahead.
But Ryan Tafazolli’s own-goal levelled the contest before the interval and neither side was able to take any of their second half chances.
Paul Cook made two changes from the side beaten at home by Newport the previous week.
One of them was enforced, with Michael Smith replacing the suspended Gary Roberts, while Gareth Evans dropped to the bench to make way for Kal Naismith.
There was not an abundance of chances in the early stages, although the hosts survived a defensive mix-up early on, while Mitchell Rose was unable to beat Ryan Fulton with an angled drive.
Pompey’s keeper then had to race from his area to clear after a blocked Christian Burgess shot turned into a quick Stags attack.
Set-pieces were causing the most problems for both sides, with Mansfield delivering some dangerous free-kicks and the Blues threatening from corners.
But it was penalty that gave the visitors a golden opportunity to break the deadlock on 20 minutes.
McNulty was brought down in the box by former Pompey loanee Daniel Alfei, but his spot-kick was brilliantly saved by Scott Shearer low to the keeper’s left.
And the Stags soon made him pay for his profligacy by taking the lead themselves, as Emmanuel Dieseruvwe teed-up Green for a cool finish.
Referee Carl Boyeson upset the mood of the home fans, however, by issuing a flurry of yellow cards, not that Dieseruvwe, Rose or Green could have much to complain about.
Pompey, meanwhile, were trying to find a leveller, but despite some neat passing forward, they were doing little to trouble Shearer.
Instead, the keeper was finally beaten by one of his team-mates just before the break, with TAFAZOLLI inadvertently turning a Ben Davies corner into his own net.
Half Time: Mansfield 1 Pompey 1
The second half was slow to get going, although it was the Blues were looking the more likely to score again.
But they were limited to a couple of scuffed efforts from Enda Stevens and Smith that did little to trouble Shearer.
Kyle Bennett went closer on 65 minutes when he met Davies’ corner with a volley that was heading for the net before it was deflected wide.
The visitors had a chance of their own when Stevens was booked for a foul on Dieseruvwe, but the resulting free-kick was confidently plucked from the air by Fulton.
Cook soon made his first substitution, with Ben Tollitt replacing Bennett wide on the left to add some youthful exuberance to Pompey’s attack.
And the Blues boss made another switch to his front line moments later, with McNulty making way for Adam McGurk.
The hosts had been growing in confidence as the half progressed and almost retook the lead on 62 minutes.
Fulton had to get down to his right to push clear Rose’s skidding, long-range effort and then denied Green from the resulting corner.
His counterpart Shearer had looked assured in the Stags goal, but almost made a hash of Michael Doyle’s opportunistic strike from distance on 77 minutes.
There was then a break in play when one of the linesmen appeared to injure his arm and had to be replaced – not that he received much sympathy from the stands.
Conor Chaplin was introduced in place of Naismith for the final five minutes, as Pompey went in search of a winner.
But, despite the fourth official announcing six minutes of stoppage-time, neither side was able to snatch victory.
Mansfield (4-4-2): Shearer; Alfei, Pearce, Tafazolli, Benning; Rose (Daniel 86), Collins (c), Clements, Kavanagh (Blair 64); Green (Thomas 83), Dieseruvwe
