  • Interstellar

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 5th November 2014

    As long as Christopher Nolan continues to exist, do we really need Steven Spielberg any more? Ol' King Noles is doing a darn fine job of delivering mega-bucks events movies with small and personal stories at the core; gigantic, universe-expanding motion pictures anchored by daddy issues, the kind which Beardo used to smash out on a regular basis. Interstellar is the latest Chris Nolan project to take a leaf out of Spielberg's playbook - once upon a time it was a Steven Spielberg project after all - and it bears the hallmarks of both directors: it's an ambitious, challenging sci-fi that takes one small step for blockbuster cinema but ultimately remains accessible to all. All the talk of Kubrick and 2001 is light years off the mark: Interstellar is the kind of space odyssey that has only shameless, monolothic entertainment on the agenda.

    A 20th Century Michael Caine, you say? No, that would still be the actual Michael Caine.

  • The Dark Knight Rises

    Movie Review | Ali | 20th July 2012

    Me, I've always been a fan of Christopher Nolan more than I have Batman. Don't get me wrong, I was wowed by the reinvention of Batman Begins and the wallop of The Dark Knight, but I'll always choose the sleight-of-hand of The Prestige or the cerebral jolt of Inception given the choice. The Dark Knight Rises is a stunning piece of work, gigantic in scale with hugely ambitious themes, but Nolan's contribution to the Batman legacy – and indeed the superhero genre as a whole – is to make these films more about the men behind the masks than the heroes they portray: the guys who make the magic happen.

  • Is this the fastest anyone has ever said 'Rated PG-13' on film?

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 10th July 2012

    Short answer: yes. Full Dark Knight Rises TV spot here, Mr Fussy.

  • Sorry, this new TV spot for The Dark Knight Rises will have to do

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 4th June 2012

    It's only 30 seconds long, but we're all bloody knackered, okay?

    EDIT: Never mind, I found a better one. Always working, me.

  • Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

    Movie Review | Rob | 3rd February 2012

    Michael Caine has had a long, glittering career spanning five decades. He's been nominated for an Academy Award in every decade since the 1960s. He's even a Knight of The Realm. The man truly is an icon of British cinema. Surely, though, flying a giant bee and high-fiving The Rock has to be his greatest achievement to date.

  • Old movie posters suck too #2

    Movie Feature | Ali | 15th June 2011

    Modern movie posters suck ape testicles, but our generation isn't the only one who have had to put up with sub-standard movie advertising. The horror! And they say nurses have it tough!
