  • The Salvation

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 22nd April 2015

    Now that everything is at least 140 minutes long, I applaud any film that does its thing for an hour and a half, gets the job done then fucks off home. The content of those 90 minutes is irrelevant really. It could be a dead goose for an hour then a man eating a Bounty for the rest. So well done, The Salvation, Danish western that you somehow are, for not hanging around too long. And for being generally all right in a forgettable sort of a way, too.

  • Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 20th August 2014

    Nine years after the pages turned on Robert Rodriguez's first Sin City movie, and with at least three major parts recast, you can't help but think this Dame To Kill For is sashaying into town long after everyone has lost interest. Showing no signs of added maturity - if anything it's even more juvenile - this slick-yet-soulless sequel features the required quota of girls, guns and garrotting, but it's unlikely to win over those who were unimpressed by the same stiff sideshow almost a decade ago.

  • 300: Rise Of An Empire

    Movie Review | Becky Suter | 5th March 2014

    "THIS! IS! SPARTA!" Or rather, "THIS! IS! THE! AEGEAN SEA!" as the next chapter of the pumped-up fight fest that was 300 moves the action to a fresh – and very wet – battlefield. Set during the same timeline of the suicidal Spartans' clash at the Hot Gates, director Noam Murro (with previous 300 helmer Zack Snyder producing) presents the slightly less-exciting but still fun Battle of Artemisium that takes place almost exclusively at sea. Caution: the first two rows may get wet.

  • Dark Shadows

    Movie Review | Matt | 10th May 2012

    Time to break out the Tim Burton checklist then. Comedy-horror with supernatural elements? Check. Johnny Depp? Obvs. Score by Danny Elfman? Yuh-huh. Helena Bonham Carter? Of course. Pop culture retread? Yes. The time has long passed when one of Hollywood's most original directors has become a parody of himself. And as his once twisted gothic visuals have now given way to colourful cartoonish CGI, you have to ask "Damn - why didn't you make a vampire movie 15 years ago?"

  • My mum saw Camelot and all you get is this lousy write-up

    TV Feature | Matt Looker | 14th June 2011

    Despite being mildly interested in watching Camelot this past weekend, I actually completely forgot it was on. Luckily, I went to see my folks yesterday with some dirty laundry and to ask for money and my mum gave me the lowdown.

  • The Golden Compass

    Movie Review | Andy | 28th December 2007

    You can see why this was made by New Line. It's 100ft tall with CGI signs all over it: "Hey, a fantasy trilogy based on popular books! Payday-tastic! Green light now!" Hell, they even put Saruman and Gandalf into the film for an ironclad Tolkien seal of approval. I mean, if those guys are in it, it must be as good as 'the other ...

  • Casino Royale

    Movie Review | Mark | 20th November 2006

    No stupid lasers, invisible cars, flying landboats, or improbable gadgets that defy the laws of physics. No Madonna pretending she can act. No idiotic, one-dimensional clichd bad guys with impossible plans to rule the world. No smartass wisecracks from an invincible ubermensch. Just plain old espionage. At last, with Casino ...

  • Kingdom Of Heaven

    Movie Review | Ali | 10th May 2005

    History is soooo rubbish - everyone knows the future is where it's at. Catapults and swords are pretty much going to come in second place when compared to blasters and lightsabres every time, which pretty much explains my attitude to every other film released this month. It's a harsh fact of life, but you don't get in the way ...
