Christmas Playlist: The Best Of 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.

Lessons learned from The Superman Project

Lessons learned from The Superman Project
I've spent the last two years obsessively dodging any and all promotions of Man Of Steel, purely so I could see a blockbuster untainted by trailers, posters and news stories. Now, having seen - and enjoyed - Man Of Steel - I ask the question: what have I learned? How have I grown? And why did I start doing this again? Here are my findings.

Review: Man Of Steel

Man Of Steel
Wow. That was my first reaction upon exiting Man Of Steel. Not necessarily 'Wow' in the sense that I had been overly impressed, but 'Wow' like I had been totally exhausted by the experience and felt so light-headed my brain couldn't quite process words with more than one syllable. Now I've had time for my synapses to cool, I can downgrade 'Wow' to 'Huh': though Man Of Steel is epic in the truest sense of the word, it pummels you so hard with its epicness that you don't have the time or the spatial awareness to notice its flaws. Maybe it's the fact I saw it cold, purposefully not having watched any trailers or promotional material beforehand, but flying blind made for an interesting experience – and dare I say, I perhaps enjoyed it more than others might due to that same lack of preconceptions.

Because, let's face it – comic-book fans will only be happy if they can spot unnecessary nods and homages in the film to prove that they can appreciate it on a much better level than your average cinema-going shitmuncher.

An update on The Superman Project
While everyone enjoys the new Man Of Steel trailer, think of poor little old me, staring at the wall in a desperate attempt to avoid any and all glimpses of the new Superman movie. Why? An experiment to see if excessive consumption of stills, posters and trailers can spoil a movie for you before it's even in cinemas. It's much, much harder than it sounds. (Okay, it isn't, but it is annoying).

Zack Snyder may still be putting film in the can for Man Of Steel, but his digital effects team are already hard at work adding the bells and whistles that quite literally make Superman fly. We've been handed some leaked shots showing the finished effects in action, which we can reveal in the following gallery. Goes without saying there are spoilers ahead...
