  • Christmas Playlist: The Best Of 2013

    Movie Feature | Neil Alcock | 21st December 2013

    It's Christmas, apparently, not that you'd notice. So here's The Shiznit's present to you: a shiny Spotify playlist of the best bits of movie music from 2013. It was that or a PS4, but we knew you'd rather have the chance to listen to the Iron Man Three theme again than receive the world's most advanced games console for free.

  • Serious corner: Why nostalgia is stunting Hollywood's growth

    Movie Feature | Ali | 11th June 2013

    Yeah, this is a long one. If you want a TL;DR, then I guess I can sum up this article by saying 'Wah wah waah'. Also spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Iron Man 3.

  • Iron Man 3

    Movie Review | Matt | 24th April 2013

    Just how do you follow The Avengers? Surely going back to single-hero stories after that huge-scale monster blockbuster just seems like a disappointing step backwards? God, Marvel have really dug themselves a billion-dollar hole, haven't they? I bet they’ve been puzzling over what to do next while using a solid-gold, diamond-encrusted head scratcher. Well, it's lucky for them that, as with phase one of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, this next chapter is being led by the shiniest instrument in their toolbox: Robert Downey Jr (who outshines even the most polished of Iron Man suits). And, with Shane Black in charge, we get more Downey Jr than ever before in what is not only the best Tony Stark film to date, but also Marvel's most mature output yet.

    We're not allowed to unleash our Iron Man 3 - sorry, IRON MAN THREE - review until tomorrow, but I don't think anyone at IM PR HQ will pop a sprocket if we reveal that Brian Tyler's end credits music is BER-RILLIANT. Here be proof.

  • Suitwatch: Robert Downey Jr has lost his damn mind

    Movie News | Ali | 12th April 2013

    There isn't a circle of shame big enough for this get-up.

  • The 50 very worst YouTube user comments on the Iron Man 3 trailer

    Movie Feature | Ali | 9th March 2013

    Like you, and five million others, I enjoyed the new Iron Man 3 UK trailer earlier this week. Unlike you, I ventured deep into the subterranean nightmare that is the YouTube comments section to try and gauge the real public reaction. Spoiler alert: everyone is idiots.

  • 8 ways The Avengers can appear in Iron Man 3 (without appearing)

    Movie Feature | Luke | 8th March 2013

    "Nothing's been the same since New York" says Tony Stark in the first trailer for Iron Man 3, before having a very bad day. With the arrival of a new trailer this week it doesn't look like his situation has improved much - so why aren't his Avenger superfriends lending a hand? Writer-director Shane Black has probably got this covered, but just in case he missed Avengers Assemble at the cinema, here are some ways Thor, Hulk and co. can be shoe-horned into the film at short notice without having to assemble the expensive cast!
