Review: The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists
There are two things guaranteed in this life: 1) Hugh Grant is so debonair he could charm the pants off a concrete nun, and 2) No one does animation quite like Aardman. Put these two sure things together and it's no surprise that The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists is the first truly great animated film of the year: a painstakingly-modelled laugh riot that boggles the mind while tickling the funnybone.

Why does The Guardian hate Tintin?
You may have already seen Steven Spielberg's new movie, The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn. It's good, huh? Well, The Guardian couldn't disagree more: in fact, they've dedicated FOUR SIX separate op-ed pieces on why they disliked it so much. Protest much?

Hugh Grant > Johnny Depp

Hugh Grant > Johnny Depp
New Aardman trailer makes Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides look like Cutthroat Island, and makes Cutthroat Island look like an actual Somali pirate. So you know it's good!

Review: The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn

The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn
Despite a directorial career that spans – holy shit, 40 years? – The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn is Steven Spielberg's first animated film. Techniques have come and gone over the years, barriers have been broken, box-office records and preconceptions shattered alike, but only now has Spielberg decided the medium is ready for him – and he's picked his moment well. For all of the good work done by Robert Zemeckis, Peter Jackson and James Cameron, it is Spielberg who has justified the existence of motion-capture technology: The Adventures Of Tintin is a relentlessly thrilling, rip-roaring yarn that's as close as anyone has ever come to bringing a comic-book to life.

The London Riots will not dampen our spirits. We will club together and mock awful movie posters, because THIS IS THE INTERNET and WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER!

Has Eddie Murphy come to his senses?

Has Eddie Murphy come to his senses?
Eddie Murphy is back on the scene, but wait - it's not Imagine That 2: The Reimagining. It's a R-rated movie! That's good, right? It's called The Misadventures Of Fluffy and features talking animals. (*packs bags*)

Review: Adventureland

Adventureland
Chances are, you had a crap job when you were younger. One where you resented every second you had to stack a shelf or greet a customer, but one where you had good friends, bad relationships and as many laughs as you had woes. Looking back now, it probably seems like a wonderfully complicated time. Welcome to Adventureland.

Review: G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra

G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra
So here we have the next in line for the Hasbro toy-to-movie treatment, following on from the Transformers films and then probably exhausting all other brands until we get a live-action trilogy of My Little Pony Vs Hungry Hungry Hippos. Like the Transformers movies, G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra is pitched as a fun, action-packed,...

Review: Terminator Salvation

Terminator Salvation
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...

Review: Star Trek

Star Trek
Let's play a little game of word association. If I said 'majestic', 'enjoyable' and 'meaningful', you wouldn't think Star Trek, right? No. But if I said 'lazy', 'predictable' and 'dull'.... well, that's Star Trek down to a tee - at least, that's how it's been for the past decade and a half. Of late, Star Trek has been a poten...
