Why Dubai’s cinemas, why? The advance cinema schedules we had sent to us promised two exciting films this week – JCVD (the fictional film about Jean Claude Van Damme starring, er, Jean Claude Van Damme) and Ponyo, the new film from the man behind Spirited Away. Neither of these films are in fact out this week, but we do get Blood & Bone, another tired film about the underground fighting world starring nobody we’ve ever heard of. This time it’s an ex-con fighting to fulfil a promise to a dead friend.
