Review: American Hustle

Posted by Neil Alcock at 12:00 on 07 Dec 2013
American Hustle
American Hustle does not fuck about setting out its stall. Its first glorious image is of a pudgy Christian Bale in a bathroom mirror, his face sheltering beneath a jacked-up haystack of atrocious seventies hair, methodically and painstakingly attempting to sculpt his ludicrous combover into a presentable form. It's immediately hilarious and tragic, and tells us that what we're about to watch is concerned with appearances, deceit, aspiration, unfathomable fashion choices and hair. Lots of hair.

It's okay, Jeremy. Not everyone can wear a moustache.

Homer's tip to solve the 'Matt Damon problem' in the next Bourne movie
With a fifth Bourne movie now official and Matt Damon still no closer to returning to the role of Bourne, Jeremy Renner is going to be asking this question a lot. (Source: Den of Geek)

Review: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

Posted by Ali at 07:00 on 26 Feb 2013
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters bears all the hallmarks of a film that knows entirely how silly it is. For starters, it's called Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. It's produced by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell, the freewheeling comedic spitballers behind Anchorman. Peter Stormare is in it. Crucially, it has a concept so inherently ludicrous – Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) are all grown up and hunt witches with hardware that'd shame Seal Team Six – you'd think it impossible for such a film to lack self-awareness. Why, then, does Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters fumble almost every chance it has to be funny?

Review: The Bourne Legacy

The Bourne Legacy
Despite its lineage, The Bourne Legacy has received a frosty reception from critics thus far and has had an almost completely anonymous marketing presence – rather than dynamically burst into cinemas next week, rolling up its poster and ramming it down audiences' throats, it shuffles in apologetically to be met with highly suspicious glares. This is entirely unnecessary, because while Legacy couldn't ever hope to match the Paul Greengrass/Matt Damon movies for sheer punch and propulsion, it's as close to replicating them as you could expect, and marks another excellent entry into the Bourneography.

A new poster for The Bourne Legacy has surfaced in Japan, but Jeremy Renner's limbs look completely out of proportion. Naturally we booted up Photoshop to make things right.

Interview: Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner
Somehow, thanks to what I can only presume was some oversight in the security details for the cast of Avengers Assemble, I was allowed within dry-humping distance of the stars to ask them some questions about the film. I’ll be posting them all over the next few days, but firstly, here’s my interview with Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. Thank god I remembered to muffle my ankle bracelet that morning.

Six best moments at the Avengers Assemble press conference
JOURNALISTS ASSEMBLE! I had the pleasure of joining half of the media in the UK in attending the biggest press conference ever seen in Britain. Probably. It was pretty big. At one point there was a biscuit shortage.
