  • Films on TV round-up: sins, Sean and cyborgs

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 19th June 2011

    I never end up watching any of these myself, you know. But if just one of you finds a new film you come to love after reading these weekly round-ups, isn't it all worth it just for that? Well, no, frankly. It takes fucking ages.

  • Films on TV round-up: stand-up comics and stand-up rows

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 12th June 2011

    Angelina Jolie, Robert De Niro, Ray Winstone and Kathy Burke. I know what you're thinking: Bucks Fizz tribute band, right? Wrong. It's this week's weekly round-up of the week's films that we do each week. Weekly. And, arguably, weakly.

  • Hereafter

    Movie Review | Ali | 27th January 2011

    Hereafter opens with a tsunami. Despite some occasionally shaky CG effects (correction: occasionally shaky Oscar-nominated CG effects), it's a powerful, harrowing scene, particularly in light of the recent worldwide floods. It's also quite apt, as the following two hours of Hereafter can only be described as a tsunami of boredom - you'll be helpless as waves of indifference crash down on you and you're overcome by a strong torrent of sludgy dialogue. Before long, the afterlife starts to sound pretty damn appealing.

  • Invictus

    Movie Review | Matt | 9th February 2010

    Nelson Mandela is one of those inspirational political figures that makes for great fodder when it comes to Oscar-baiting season. Throw in a stirring account of underdogs rising to their sporting challenge and you have the perfect Academy Award film, right? Maybe, but there is such a thing as 'too much substance over style' and Invictus falls into this trap, ultimately suffering from its own importance.
