  • Wreck-It Ralph

    Movie Review | Matt | 3rd February 2013

    I'm sorry to dispel the idea that this site is run entirely by the kind of geeks who immerse themselves in every form of popular culture available, but I'm not much of a gamer. By all accounts, the other guys are, but I couldn’t tell apart a Far Cry from a Mass Effect, or even a Vita from a DS for that matter. I mention this only as a way of making it clear upfront that I may not be the best person to appreciate Wreck-It Ralph's myriad of 8-bit cameos and gaming references – just in case my right to review a film about a fairly unfamiliar subject matter is ever called into question. Let alone my opinion: it's actually rather good.

  • Glee – season two finale

    TV Review | Alex Gregg | 29th June 2011

    After riding the Sue Sylvester Express for the second time, season two of Glee has drawn to a close. But how about that season finale?

  • 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.

  • LittleBigPicture: Songs of praise

    TV Feature | Kirsty | 29th April 2010

    Had you for a second there, didnt we? As if wed do an article on Songs of Praise. All those choirs singing those random songs in perfect harmony. Snore. Who wants to watch that? Its all singing and cardigans; so wholesome and tedious. No sirreebob, this week is all about my favourite new show of the year. Despite what you might think, it's not really about the singing...

  • Role Models

    Movie Review | Ali | 10th January 2009

    Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott (y'know, Stifler) are two of the most underrated comic actors in the business; they've both been plugging away for years but always seem to get saddled with thankless roles in shitty films (Over Her Dead Body, Dukes Of Hazzard etc). Surviving on the bottom rungs of the comedy ladder, their only ...

  • Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby

    Movie Review | Ali | 18th September 2006

    That Will Ferrell is a Marmite kind of guy, but love him or hate him, there's a certain quality to him that you just can't ignore. Having graduated to the grand overlord of the Frat Pack over the last few years (by default more than anything: put out enough movies and you'll rise through the ranks), Ferrell divides audiences li...

  • A Mighty Wind

    Movie Review | Ali | 12th September 2004

    "It's Spinal Tap with Folk music!" cried the reviews of Christopher Guest's latest improvised mockumentary, but to label it as Tap with mandolins is doing it an injustice. Sure, you'll find Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer combining to create lukewarm water once more, but in reality, A Mighty Wind is more like ...
