Gonzi told Musumeci not to run for seat

A can of worms

The forthcoming by-election for John Dalli’s parliamentary seat – which will be vacated next week, if the European Commission is indeed confirmed as expected – will most likely be remembered for the dangerous precedent it has clearly set in Maltese politics.>>

Film Review:
By Teodor Reljic

Thrilling… as expected

Catch-22 meets Don Quixote in Iraq

So average it hurts

There’s no getting Caine

No need to ask, he’s a smooth operator

To be seen in 3D at all costs

For absent friends…

She’s a mean, mean girl

Picking up the pieces

Undead funny

Blue moon, I saw you standing alone

Historical flashpoints

It’s a long way up

An evolution in grief

The hazards of love

I’m not there

From rags to…?

The flakes and the fury

Good forecast for gluttons

Aliens - out!

Lost in translation

A basterd’s work is never done

Toy stories

Going off the rails on a crazy

The rodents in the

Revenge of the nerd

As queer as you’d expect

The story of L

Too much is never enough

Dubya’s last stand

Keep it Simple, Stupid

On a political prisoner

Guess who’s back?

Kid's stuff? Not really

She was once a girl,
believe it or not

A howling shame

Putting the dead in deadline


Delicious double-crosses
