Review: #LFF2013: Locke

#LFF2013: Locke
Claustrocore fans have had it good at this year's London Film Festival. Whether it's Robert Redford single-handedly taking on the Indian Ocean in All Is Lost, or Elijah Wood trapped at his piano by a crazed gunman in the unintentionally hilarious and brilliantly terrible Grand Piano, those of us who like being stuck in one location with one actor for the best part of a film have been well served by the BFI. The daddy of them all, though, takes place nowhere more thrilling than in a car on the M6 and M1, and the man in the driving seat is future Road Warrior Tom Hardy. That's right guys - it's Mad Max: Beyond Toddington. *takes rest of day off*

Review: Lawless

Lawless
A period drama set during the Depression? Based on a popular, critically-acclaimed novel? Starring an ensemble cast of superb acting talent? Well surely nothing can stop this awards-garnering juggernaut from winning... wait, is that Shia LaBeouf? (*sharp intake of breath*)

Review: The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises
Me, I've always been a fan of Christopher Nolan more than I have Batman. Don't get me wrong, I was wowed by the reinvention of Batman Begins and the wallop of The Dark Knight, but I'll always choose the sleight-of-hand of The Prestige or the cerebral jolt of Inception given the choice. The Dark Knight Rises is a stunning piece of work, gigantic in scale with hugely ambitious themes, but Nolan's contribution to the Batman legacy – and indeed the superhero genre as a whole – is to make these films more about the men behind the masks than the heroes they portray: the guys who make the magic happen.

Is this the fastest anyone has ever said 'Rated PG-13' on film?

Short answer: yes. Full Dark Knight Rises TV spot here, Mr Fussy.

Sorry, this new TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises will have to do

It's only 30 seconds long, but we're all bloody knackered, okay?

EDIT: Never mind, I found a better one. Always working, me.

9 movie mumblers who still have clearer diction than Bane
Debate is STILL ongoing on whether or not Christopher Nolan has cleaned up Bane's incomprehensible dialogue in The Dark Knight Rises: some say new scenes are crisper, others say he's more mumbly than ever. One thing is for sure, the following nine guys - even with their very different speech impediments - are still easier to follow than Bane.

Review: Warrior

Posted by Ali at 07:00 on 19 Sep 2011
Warrior
At a glance, Warrior looks like just another scrapper drama – dudes get into fights, one emerges victorious, life lessons are learned along the way, someone angling for a poster quote compares it to Raging Bull and we all go home with our bloodlust slaked. Shortlist's poster quote – "All the Rockys rolled into one!" – reads more like a back-handed compliment than an enthusiastic recommendation. As it unfolds, however, Warrior reveals itself to be more than just a brainless slugger – like the best boxing movies, it's able to utterly wrap you up in the moment and have you punching the air come its conclusion. Oh, and Warrior doesn't just have punching... it has kicking, too. Face kicking.
