  • The Sweeney

    Movie Review | Rob | 11th September 2012

    "We're The Sweeney, shithead. You're nicked!" grunts Ray Winstone after a rather brutal pre-title sequence. With that, Nick Love goes all Batman Begins with his gritty, swear-filled, unapologetic vision of The Sweeney - a far cry from the dodgy trousers, funny haircuts and, I imagine, casual racism and flagrant sexism of the John Thaw and Dennis Waterman days. The '70s, huh? Good times.

  • Snow White And The Huntsman

    Movie Review | Ali | 29th May 2012

    Movie Review | Ben | 2nd February 2010

    It's been seven years since Mel Gibson last appeared in a movie, and while he's kept himself busy drink-driving and bringing the phrase "sugar tits" to prominence, the Jew-hating Aussie with a lack of respect for historical fact is finally back and it's... a thoroughly underwhelming experience.

  • Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st May 2008

    16 July, 1999. The queue for the cinema spills out into the car park. Crowds jostle with energy and a sense of adventure. The screen is packed to capacity, a quick glance revealing the audience to be a cross-section of both males and females, young and old. The lights go down to giggles at first and finally, respectfully, an awe...
