Number #8 on the countdown of the Top 10 films of our lifetime is the only foreign language film to make the grade. That doesn't mean we're not a continental bunch, however: I've been to Iceland, which is a bit like Sweden, and I walked past a cinema (it was showing Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, which I'd already seen, making me feel like a cinephile) - Ali.
Stop talking! Drop everything! Yes, even you, guy doing emergency surgery! The official synopsis for Avengers: Age Of Ultron has been released and it's... incredibly generic. It reads like it has been written by an evil AI whose only function is to churn out underwhelming copy to press agencies. The fiend!
I think if I ever met Shane Black my love for him would be so overwhelmingly physical I'd probably end up getting him pregnant - and it's terrible lines like that which prove I'm not worthy. It seems bonkers that Black was ever off the boil, but pre-Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - and certainly pre Iron Man 3, the best Marvel movie to date bar none - he was considered as big a risk as his star, Robert Downey Jr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was a roaring success and one of the funniest movies I've ever seen; so good, but I can't help but think what classics we were denied during both Black and Downey Jr's fallow periods - Ali.
In case you missed the sensational social media event of last Friday, TheShiznit.co.uk turned 10 years old. We launched on September 12th, 2004, and we've been getting worse ever since. However, the movies we've seen along the way have been amazing, so we decided to mark the occasion by ranking our 10 favourite films released since we went online. The debate was fierce. Arguments raged. Tempers frayed. Plates were thrown. Then I decided to see if the other guys wanted to chip in. You can read the results over the next 10 weekdays, culminating with our #1 favourite movie of TheShiznit.co.uk's lifetime on Friday 26th September. Until then...
Ten years ago today – back when we were all going mad for space hoppers and rocket lollies – I posted the first article on this very website. I bet a decade ago no one would have predicted that the site would still be going strong or that kids would still be using the popular slang word 'shiznit' in their everyday vocabulary.
It's September, the month when Hollywood lets out a 30-day yawn. Denzel Washington's action thriller The Equalizer is probably the largest studio release this month, but you wouldn't know it to look at its posters: a series of eight one-sheets that feature Denzel Washington, your dad's clothes, a gun and no excitement whatsoever. Can it hurry up and be Halloween soon please?
Not sure what's more offensive here: 1) The quite improbable pose in which the giant woman is falling down the stairs, 2) The quite implausible architecture of the world's most poorly designed house, or 3) The quite impossible shitness with which the poster has been copied and pasted from the original. Also, for the tagline, see...
I recently had reason to look at Vinnie Jones' IMDB page. I forget why now, because my brain has been dazzled by the sheer number of projects he currently has in the works. Brother be almost as busy as Eric Roberts.
