Review: Filth

Posted by Neil Alcock at 09:45 on 04 Oct 2013
Filth
Bruce Robertson is a cunt. A lying, thieving, cheating, racist, misogynist, homophobic shitstick who would sooner drug you and steal your watch than give you the time of day, and if he did give you the time of day it would be after looking at your own watch, which he has just stolen. He pinches kids' balloons, forces underage girls to nosh on his junk and screws his friends' and colleagues' wives. He's also a Detective Sergeant in Edinburgh's Lothian Constabulary, and probably the greatest lead character in cinemas this year.

Review: The World's End

The World's End
"Want anything from the shop?" For fans of Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, there is only one answer to that question, such is the cult cultural impact these films have had on the collective film nerd consciousness. And now, here we are with the conclusion of the so-called Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy in the offing and the pressure is on. This is basically as eagerly awaited as the never-going-to-happen third series of Spaced. So would we like anything from the shop? Yes, we'd like a film that's just as sharp, funny and quotable as the previous two instalments, please. Thankfully, Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg have returned with just what we asked for.

Review: Snow White And The Huntsman

Snow White And The Huntsman
What's this, you say? A film about Snow White? A movie in which Kristen Stewart has to choose between two dudes? A movie in which Charlize Theron behaves like a complete lunatic? A movie in which Chris Hemsworth is a swarthy yet heroic warrior? Please, continue! How delightfully original! There hasn't been a movie like this for years! Seriously! Shit you guys! My sarcasm button is stuck! It's making it sooo difficult to write this review with any modicum of professionalism! Ugh!

Review: Tyrannosaur

Tyrannosaur
One of the major problems people seemed to have with Joe Cornish's Attack The Block was that the protagonists were essentially thugs – armed youths who kicked off the movie by mugging a nurse. It's a tough job to have audiences rally round such a loutish lot and requires one hell of a knack for character to win them over. Well, Tyrannosaur opens with the lead character kicking his own dog to death. Just imagine how hard Peter Mullan and Paddy Considine have to work to make amends for that.

Review: Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes is one of Britain's most enduring literary figures, thanks in no small part to previous adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle's books on the big and small screens. Whilst it's not known whether anyone has actually read a Holmes book in the last few decades, everyone has a clear mental picture of the detective in question and can throw out a few misquotes when the situation calls for it.

Review: Hancock

Hancock
Holy shit, Batman! An original superhero story! No stigma attached; no fanboy preconceptions; no bitching about bad casting; no in-built audience to pander to. Just an honest to Zod, original idea for a film about a superhero that's not ripped from the pages of a comic or a TV show or a website or a painting or a dirty limerick....
