Review: Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3
On behalf of my other reviewers, I'd like to ask Pixar to give us a break. I mean, come on, it's not exactly easy to review a Pixar movie these days. Okay, it's easy, but it requires a vocabulary far beyond the norm. How many ways are there to say something is excellent? Hey gang, let's find out together.

LittleBigPicture politics special: 10 political TV powerhouses
I hear there's been an election of some kind? I must admit to having missed it, being trapped as I am in this TV closet without access to polling stations or postal ballots.

LittleBigPicture: Songs of praise
Had you for a second there, didn't we? As if we'd do an article on Songs of Praise. All those choirs singing those random songs in perfect harmony. Snore. Who wants to watch that? It's all singing and cardigans; so wholesome and tedious. No sirreebob, this week is all about my favourite new show of the year. Despite what you might think, it's not really about the singing...

LittleBigPicture: movies you didn't know had TV spin-offs
In lieu of an actual TV article this week, we're being overly critical about spin-off TV shows from some pretty classic movies. No Buffy, M*A*S*H or Clueless here, oh no... These are the ones that tried, but failed to make it on the small screen. The little spin-offs that couldn't.

LittleBigPicture: The return of V
On our LittleBluePlanet, we are concerned with one thing more than any other. Not curing disease, or feeding children. No, as a species, we worry that big scary aliens might probe us in our bottoms.

LittleBigPicture: new TV column! This week, new Who and Frost lost
Hello there Shizniteers. You're probably wondering what I'm doing here and what this new post is all about. Why, you're asking, am I reading a blog that's not about films, or film-related news? On top of that shocker, this lunatic appears to be talking in the fourth person and about TV. What in the name of Edgar Wright is going on?

Review: The Blind Side

The Blind Side
American football is a sport we don't get much information on over here; as Alan Partridge said, it's just futuristic rugby, right? But it's okay that the rules are overly confusing and we don't play it at school, because there is little to no gridiron action included in American football movie The Blind Side.

New trailer for The Karate Kid sparks moronic nerd outrage
With Kick-Ass's Hit-Girl and Jaden Smith's Karate Kid out later this year, hard-ass midgets are all the rage. I've got my nephew some nunchucks for his fifth birthday, y'know, start him off early.

Review: The Lovely Bones

The Lovely Bones
It's a big ask, translating one of the most popular books of the late 20th Century onto the big screen. Especially when said book is full of other worldly imagery and is, for the most part, narrated by a dead 14 year-old.
