If 2018's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth

If 2018's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth
It's been a trying year. The very nature of truth has come under threat. Honesty is a rare commodity. Transparency in power is non-existent. Maybe, just maybe, if the posters for Hollywood's most fancied Oscar movies started telling the truth, others would follow suit. Retweet and share this on Facebook 100 times if you want Donald Trump impeached and maybe we can make a real difference, starting with my Google AdSense income.

The 10 most unbelievable, most exhausting, jazz-handiest moments from The Greatest Showman

The 10 most unbelievable, most exhausting, jazz-handiest moments from The Greatest Showman
Hugh Jackman has spent his adult life trying to make musicals happen. Remember when he hosted the Oscars in 2009 and proudly proclaimed “Musicals are back!” even though they weren't, in fact, back? Remember when his musical Las Vegas crime thriller Viva Laughlin got shelved after two episodes, and then when you subsequently realised *that* was the rage that was really driving Wolverine? Well, musicals are properly back thanks to La La Land, which had nothing to do with Hugh Jackman, so now Hugh Jackman is doing a musical to prove to everyone that Hugh Jackman and musicals belong together. The Greatest Showman isn't as good as La La Land, obviously, even if it does share the same, uh [checks notes] lyricists, but it is good for one thing: a big, fat injection of industrial grade cheese into the bloodstream. Here are the best bits.

An evening with Chevy Chase and the guy who did the UKIP Calypso

An evening with Chevy Chase and the guy who did the UKIP Calypso
Over Christmas, my stepsister's husband tried to palm off on me two tickets for An Evening with Hollywood Comedy Legend Chevy Chase at the Hammersmith Apollo, which he could no longer use. He'd paid £65 each. Obviously I wasn't going to take them face value: there was a decent chance it was going to be awful. Then last week he offered me a buy-one-get-one-free deal and the chance to leave a relative out of pocket was too good to pass up, so I went along on Saturday. It disappointed in the most incredible way.

Marvel's Cine-CHAT-ic Universe: Iron Man 2 (2010)
It's time for a brand new installment of the feature we can't believe no one else is doing: talking about Marvel movies! After kicking off with Iron Man and seriously questioning the format with The Incredible Hulk, we're officially into sequel territory with Iron Man 2, the first movie that knew it was part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or should we say... Cine-CHAT-ic Universe? No. No we shouldn't. We should use the correct terminology.

Marvel's Cine-CHAT-ic Universe: The Incredible Hulk (2008)
It's official: part two of this new feature means it definitely qualifies as a 'regular', although we haven't quite pinned down how often we'll be catching up with the Marvel movies - it basically comes down to when ITV2 get round to showing the next one. And as nobody came up with a better title, it's time to HULK SMASH the 'Read full article' button and enjoy the next chapter of (*winces*) Marvel's Cine-CHAT-ic Universe: The Incredible Hulk.

Here is a list of every man in Hollywood who hasn't been accused of sexual harassment
Given recent allegations surrounding movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, actors Casey Affleck and James Woods, and not to mention the countless scandals surrounding male movie critics and bloggers, the cliché has become true: it's now literally easier to list the men in Hollywood who haven't committed some form of sexual harassment.

18 questions I still have about Kingsman: The Golden Circle
It's been two weeks since I saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the movie motion picture event of September, and barely a day goes by that I don't think about it. It's a movie that really makes you question everything you know. Questions like 'Who is actually enjoying this?' and 'How do you turn something as joyous as a foul-mouthed Elton John cameo into a depressing chore?' Join me as I ask more spoiler-filled questions of Kingsman: The Golden Circle and wait fruitlessly for it to answer me.

20 reasons for Hollywood's worst summer in 20 years
It's official: this summer was the worst summer for movies in over 20 years. Labor Day box-office receipts were down 45% compared to the same weekend in 2016, leaving analysts to declare summer 2017 a total cinematic washout. But why? I mean, obviously all the movies were terrible, but why really? We went in search of answers and by God, we found them.
