    Movie Feature | Matt Looker | 20th April 2015

  • Top 10 films of our lifetime #2: Children Of Men

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 25th September 2014

    I bloody love a good apocalypse. I think if I were a director, being given the chance to ruin the world and set up camp at ground zero would be like being a kid in a sweet shop: so much potential for iconic imagery, so many stories to tell, so many angles. In Children Of Men, Alfonso Cuaron tells the biggest story - the imminent extinction of mankind - yet manages to make it small and personal at the same time. And, true to form, he captures some unforgettable imagery along the way. I hope the real apocalypse looks this good - Ali.

  • Deliver Us From Evil

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 31st August 2014

    Have you ever had your enjoyment of a film completely derailed by a small, insignificant part of that movie? A niggle that becomes a bother than becomes all you can think about? I had that with possession thriller Deliver Us From Evil, a competent, forgettable horror flick from the guy who made Sinister. It's a fairly enjoyable movie, if a little flat and unambitious, but in terms of possession movies starring C-list actors with bad scripts, it's par for the course. Except for one thing. A single sound effect. Which ruins the entire movie.

  • Transformers: Age Of Extinction

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 3rd July 2014

    An age of extinction. Well, it does go on for ages, but Michael Bay's fourth Transformers movie, while offering some CGI spectacle to knock your block off, threatens the eradication of the human race but never treats the prospect with much more than an afterthought.

  • Amazon greenlights original series about drills

    TV News | Ed Williamson | 31st March 2014

    I read that Amazon had given the go-ahead for a new series called Bosch to stream on Amazon Prime, which sounded interesting, so I Googled "amazon bosch" to find out more. I don't know, it looks all right, but it's probably one of those ones that doesn't really get going till season two.

  • Slanted letters denoting wackiness still being used on posters in 2013

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 16th November 2013

    Honestly, it's like we've learned nothing from Silver Linings Playbook.

  • Vince Vaughn officially runs out of 'exasperated broseph' poses

    Movie Feature | Matt | 12th November 2013

    He also seems to have aged two decades in the last two years.

    (By the way, just so you know what film this is for, "DER LIEFER HELD: Unverhofft Kommt Oft" translates as "THE DELIVERY HERO: Unexpectedly Come Often" as per Google Translate. You're welcome.)

  • We're basically just a Tom Hiddleston fan site at this point

    Movie Trailer | Ali Gray | 3rd November 2013

    First trailer for Jim Jarmusch's rock 'n' roll vampire movie Only Lovers Left Alive, starring T-Swints & Hiddles. Looks better than I, Frankenstein.

  • The eight lamest "snarks" from Nikki Finke's Emmys "live-snark" (UGHHH)

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 23rd September 2013

    "Come for the cynicism... stay for the subversion!" promises industry analyst Nikki Finke ahead of her Emmy Awards liveblog - or "live-snark". You want subversion? You want the evening turned on its head? You've got it: Finke posted a picture of host Neil Patrick Harris UPSIDE DOWN. Take that! More depressingly awful put-downs after the jump.

  • No One Lives

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 3rd September 2013

    WWE setting up a film studio is a fairly natural progression. It's been a conveyor belt to throw stars like Stone Cold Steve Austin and John Cena into cash-in action films, and now here it is with splatterfest No One Lives, featuring a minor role for wrestler George Murdoch. Fine by me, but remember when the wrestlers would do those promos to camera where they shouted angrily about the bodily harm they were about to do their opponent? Well, imagine a film in which everyone spoke like that throughout, then at some point came face-to-face with their own small intestine. Yep, you're there.
