  • Jack Reacher (#2)

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 20th December 2012

    Sure, we already gave you one review of Jack Reacher, but here's a second. Can you ever have too many? Yes, obviously: three would be too many. Point is, what divides this film's audience, and was always going to, is whether or not they'd read Lee Child's books beforehand. Your original reviewer Matt hadn't, largely because he reads the sort of rubbish that has emotions and realistic female characters in it. I, on the other hand, have, because the Reacher books are for MEN and have GUNS and 'SPLOSIONS and stuff in them. Other than that, I mainly just read Auto Trader and porn.

    Movie Review | Matt | 11th December 2012

    Let me get this out of the way upfront: I have never read the Jack Reacher novels. I have no feelings towards the character whatsoever and have no preconceptions as to how tall, short, fat, thin or fully abled he should be. Stick Danny DeVito in the role for all I care. Sod it, let War Horse play the character – just give me guns and fights and car chases. So, while I can’t speak for any fans of Lee Child’s novels, I’m pleased to say that, when judged on its own terms at least, this movie is quite a lot of fun.

  • Prometheus + War Of The Worlds = Oblivion

    Movie Trailer | Luke | 9th December 2012

    So we're more or less an Oblivion fan site now.

  • I can't look at the new Oblivion poster without thinking of this

    Hover your mouse over the image

    Luckily he can still get around in his little matchbox spaceship (via IMP).

  • The Jack Reacher trailer next to a picture of The Rock for no reason

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 4th July 2012

    Any comparison you deem fit to make is nothing to do with me. I for one would be terrified if I bumped into Tom Cruise in a dark alley.

  • Rock Of Ages

    Movie Review | Matt | 10th June 2012

    Power chords and rock ballads, permed hair and eye liner, bare tops and leather trousers... Rock Of Ages is a stone-cold medley of cheese and cliché. It riffs on dated guitar bands and power-anthems and it builds its city on dry ice and key changes. And yet... it still kinda rocks.

  • Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

    Movie Review | Ali | 12th December 2011

    How many straight-up action movies have you seen this year? Remove all the superhero movies, alien invasions and Jason Statham films (which, as we all know, don't play by conventional rules), and there have been precious few pulse-pounders that were rooted in reality. Being grounded is not something typically associated with Tom Cruise – indeed, in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol he comes closer than ever to his Space God, courtesy of the Burj Khalifa – but the return of Ethan Hunt and his IMF team should be welcomed in a year where far-out fantasy and outlandish action has so far reigned.

  • Memewatch: Tom Cruise is sitting on top of the world

    Movie Feature | Ali | 8th December 2011

    A picture of Tom Cruise sitting at the peak of the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai hit the web today, and within nanoseconds, men and women with nothing better to do began Photoshopping him into compromising situations. I give you the Tom Cruise Sitting Meme.

  • It really bothers me how Tom Cruise says the word 'abort' in M:I-4

    Movie Feature | Ali | 28th November 2011

    I can't really convey how odd it is in print, so here's a snippet from the Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol trailer to prove it.
