  • The Ghost

    Movie Review | Anna | 18th April 2010

    Polanski's first film in five years has been met with a very mixed response. Little White Lies said "the whole movie is actually Polanski being, well, shit." The Guardian, however, considers the movie to be Polanski's "most purely enjoyable film for years." I'm going to have to embrace my inner Lib Dem and come down squarely in the middle with a solid-but-not-mind-blowing three stars.

  • I Love You Phillip Morris

    Movie Review | Rob | 18th March 2010

    Oscar nominations for gay cowboys and a win for Sean Penn's gay politician; Hollywood loves homosexuals, as long as it's all kept clean. I Love You Phillip Morris gained massive plaudits at Sundance last year but struggled to find a US distributor comfortable with its somewhat graphic content.

  • The Blind Side

    Movie Review | Kirsty | 8th March 2010

    American football is a sport we don't get much information on over here; as Alan Partridge said, it's just futuristic rugby, right? But it's okay that the rules are overly confusing and we don't play it at school, because there is little to no gridiron action included in American football movie The Blind Side.

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 15th January 2010

    New trailer for Jim Carrey's hom-con-com looks one part Dirty Rotten Scoundrels to two parts Brokeback Mountain.

  • McG still making Terminator 5 & 6

    For the love of God, somebody stop him.

  • Law Abiding Citizen

    Movie Review | Phyllis | 25th November 2009

    What happens when you throw Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx, insinuated rape, gruesome revenge killings and over-the-top action sequences together into one over-long courtroom drama? It isn't hilarity that ensues. It's a goddamn depressing mess.

  • The Men Who Stare At Goats

    Movie Review | Rob | 11th November 2009

    Ewan McGregor, you may remember, is actually an actor, and a pretty good one at that. When he's not gallivanting around the world with Charley Boorman on a bike, getting a sore arse, he does occasionally find time to make a film or two.

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 29th August 2009

    George Clooney is back in the Middle East, but he's not stealing Kuwaiti bullion or trying to win an Oscar; he's trying to kill a goat with his mind. It's a comedy! Hooray!

  • Terminator Salvation

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st May 2009

    Terminator Salvation is explosive - not in the sense that it'll blow your mind, more in the sense that it'll burst your eardrums. Pound for pound, it features more explosions than any other movie I've seen - there's literally something detonating or collapsing or being shot or catching fire every 30 seconds. Even in quiet scenes...

  • Angels & Demons

    Movie Review | Ali | 6th May 2009

    Tom Hanks adopts his serious face: "I need to get to a library... fast!" Never has one line damned a film so completely. The book might have sold 83 billion copies, but The Da Vinci Code movie was turgid, self-important and - oddly, for a movie about the lineage of Jesus Christ - terminally dull. I'm happy to report, t...
