  • Fast & Furious 8

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 11th April 2017

    The Fast & Furious franchise is not big on learning. It doesn't really care for consequences. It is of the moment. Always in the now. If it were a person, it would be the kind of person who sincerely believes in the motto 'If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best'. Fast & Furious movies are wrongheaded and backwards but they don't care, because people vote with their wallets. They are Brexit. They are dumb. They make dumb look dumb. They are awful. They are brilliant. They are confusing and simple and ridiculous and serious all at the same time, somehow. Fast & Furious 8, a title and a number which give me great pleasure to say together, is all of these things and more.

  • New Year's Eve

    Movie Review | Rob | 8th December 2011

    New Year's Eve; the one night of the year when you feel obliged to have fun, but if truth be told, you usually can't be arsed. Fittingly, that's how Garry Marshall's follow-up to Valentine's Day makes you feel.

  • A lament on the lost art of the rap-based movie tie-in

    Movie Feature | Wil | 1st December 2011

    There are many things I dislike about the state of modern cinema (3D, digital piracy, Shia LaBeouf), but the other week I realised we've lost something I truly loved: the blockbuster rap theme song.

  • Fast & Furious 5: Rio Heist

    Movie Review | Rob | 21st April 2011

    Fast Five? Fast & Furious 5? 5ast 5ive? Fa5t & Fiveriou5? Whatever the hell you decide to call it, this macho, manly franchise shows no signs of pulling into the slow lane. Grrrr!

  • No Strings Attached

    Movie Review | Ali | 2nd March 2011

    I'm not about to make apologies for No Strings Attached - it's a soulless movie with zero charm and almost no merits; a film which, if deleted from existence, wouldn't even make the smallest ripple in the space-time continuum. However, speaking from Natalie Portman's point of view, I can understand why she made it. After 12 months of hardcore ballet training for Black Swan, she just wanted to slum it. Acting opposite Ashton Kutcher is the equivalent of dropping down a year in school for someone like her.
