  • It remake poster: New Pennywise even creepier than original

    Movie Feature | Matt Looker | 15th August 2016

    Side note: It looks to me like Pierce Brosnan really shouldn't be living here.

  • Brosnan's Holiday: How Pierce likes to mix business with leisure

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 21st April 2014

    Though I'm duty bound to pay him the amount of respect any ex-Bond is due, prepare yourselves for a theory that will change the way you look about Pierce Brosnan and the movies he makes. Sneak preview: it almost feels like he's not acting entirely for the love of the art-form.

    Dear 'A Long Way Down': NEWSPAPERS DO NOT LOOK THAT WAY. (Larger version here, full trailer here)

  • Films on TV round-up: Licence to Spiel(berg)

    TV Feature | Matt Looker | 18th September 2011

    FACT: films on TV are better than films on DVD. All they take is a simple remote click as opposed to going to all the trouble of inserting a disc, and they often come with those handy loo breaks, which in no way disrupt narrative flow.

  • Mamma Mia!

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st July 2008

    If the words 'ABBA medley' conjure up images of Alan Partridge Aha-ing his way through an ill-advised TV duet, then this meticulously-crafted jukebox of disco hits might be enough to change your mind. Adapted from the stage musical - which has raked in over $2 billion in just under ten years - it's a winning mix of feel good flo...

  • The Matador

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st March 2006

    What with all the clinical headshots, fatal stabbings and car-bomb murders, sometimes we lose sight of an important message: hitmen are people too.
