    Movie Review | Matt | 9th October 2012

    A film in which the central character is a writer whose latest creation - a beautiful young woman - suddenly appears as an actual person in front of him, and everything he writes about her becomes true in real life. Hmmm... interesting. Worth a shot, right?

  • Haywire

    Movie Review | Ali | 6th January 2012

    Honestly, I question whether anyone involved is really taking Haywire completely seriously. This is Steven Soderbergh in experimentation mode; an auteur director making a stripped-down, amped-up action movie, just to see if he can. It features a stellar cast, all of whom are slumming it to some degree, except of course for MMA fighter and lead actress Gina Carano, whose best is – in the nicest way possible – still some way beneath everyone else's. I'd recommend you approach Haywire with a similar air of detachment – expect nothing less than a slick, short, snappy revenge flick and you won't be disappointed.

  • Antonio Banderas really loves the pussy

    Movie News | Luke | 12th October 2011

    I tried to resist it, honest! But when else will there ever be such a perfect opportunity to realise Banderas' love of cats and my love of dirty jokes in one vulgar headline? Good morning, by the way.

  • The Skin I Live In

    Movie Review | Matt | 23rd August 2011

    The chances are that anything you already know about The Skin I Live In actually amounts to very little. "Twisty", "psychological", "a bit of a headfuck"… does that sound about right? Well, yes to all of the above, and the reason you don't know any more is because this film involves a serious, changes-everything table-turn just after the midway point, which means I can't say much about the plot that doesn't run the risk of unleashing a major spoil. (*grits teeth*) Great.

  • Haywire trailer: Steven Soderbergh's MMA movie (seriously)

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 23rd July 2011

    Famed indie auteur Steven Soderbergh must have got tired of thinking outside the box and fighting the system, because he's directed an action movie starring a female MMA fighter. I can't decide whether it looks amazing or like something Steven Seagal would pass on.

  • Shrek Forever After

    Movie Review | Rob | 30th June 2010

    Shrek has been the flagship franchise of DreamWorks Animation for nigh on a decade now, constantly pulling at the coat tails of Pixar like a child desperate to be listened to. But after the underwritten, overflowing Shrek The Third failed to live up to the first two, DreamWorks may have thought about milking another potential franchise dry and retiring this old ogre back to his muddy puddle.
