  • TIL: Tom Selleck and Jamie Foxx are rival avocado-farming neighbours

    Movie Feature | Matt Looker | 29th August 2018

    It sounds like it should be the plot of a terrible movie, or the basis for a terrible sitcom, but i promise you, it really is just terrible real life.

  • Baby Driver

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 20th June 2017

    I don’t envy Edgar Wright. I mean, I do, obviously. He’s stupidly talented, hangs out with cool Hollywood people and totally rocks the kind of facial hair you’d normally only see on a second-year arts grad student. But he is also under an awful lot of pressure to meet impossibly high expectations considering his relatively short film résumé. Think about it: two cult comedy classics, followed by the visually-impressive-but-niche Scott Pilgrim, and then a quick return to close off the Cornetto Trilogy. That’s it. Now everyone is ready to hail this new Edgar Wright movie as the champion of the summer, but what even IS an ‘Edgar Wright movie’?

  • White House Down

    Movie Review | Rob, Matt | 6th September 2013

    What are the chances of two 'Die Hard In The White House' films getting released just months apart? And it's always such a shame when this kind of thing happens because, inevitably, whichever film gets released second is the one that suffers. In fact, to Average Joe Cinema, it might even look like this film has COPIED Olympus Has Fallen. Well, let me be the first to assure you that this kind of laziness just doesn't happen in the entertainment industry.

  • I can't watch that 'Electro' teaser without thinking of this

    Movie Feature | Matt | 20th July 2013



    This might be Spider-Man's least fearsome enemy yet (original Amazing Spider-Man 2 teaser here).

  • 6 things Jamie Foxx's Spider-Man villain Electro (sort of) looks like

    Movie Feature | Ali | 17th April 2013

    Modelling themselves on photographer Peter Parker, paparazzi snoopers managed to snag themselves some cool pictures of Jamie Foxx in make-up, if not in costume, as The Amazing Spider-Man 2's villain Electro. We can't help but think he looks a little familiar. A bit like...

  • Django Unchained

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 14th January 2013

    I've seen Django Unchained twice now. After the second viewing, I looked back through the notes I'd made after the first, and realised that most of them were now useless. As with a lot of Quentin Tarantino's work, it takes more than one watch to fully form an opinion, but in this case I'd changed my mind almost entirely. I read back through them, crossing out complaints regarding its lengthy, meandering scenes and its jarring refusal to end at its obvious conclusion. But I understand these things better now for what they are: exercises in character development that make this one of its author's richest and most engaging works.

  • Final trailer for Django Unchained features rap, funk, GUNS

    Movie Trailer | Luke | 29th November 2012



    (*makes gun fingers*) Pew pew! (*laughs*) Hey, you're meant to pew pew back! Pew pew! (*looks at smoke coming from fingers, body on floor*) Oh my God it's happening again BRAAAAAHHHHHHM

  • Jamie Foxx in talks to play 87th greatest comic-book villain of all time

    Movie News | Matt | 2nd November 2012

    Still, he's higher up in the list than whatever the fuck that thing was in Green Lantern.

  • Sexually confusing Django Unchained poster head-swap of the day

    Movie Feature | Ali | 19th October 2012

    "Look at my tits, I double dare you, motherfucker." Making the most of the new Django Unchained posters, because Friday. (Via /Film).

  • Horrible Bosses

    Movie Review | Matt | 25th July 2011

    You've all had that one boss, right? The one who convinced all your colleagues that you were an alcoholic, had coke-fuelled orgies in his office or sexually harassed you to the point of borderline rape? Nah, me either. The worst I've ever had to put up with is being made to process the quarterly spend spreadsheets a week early. Not so much 'horrible' as 'insensitive to my existing workload'.
