  • Safety Not Guaranteed

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 26th December 2012

    If time travel is ever invented, the pioneers will travel back to 2012, watch a film or two and think what a bunch of mugs we all were. The mechanics are pretty realistic, they'll say, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks nothing like Bruce Willis. They might be charmed, though, by the quaint idea of there being such a thing as an independent film industry, and by Safety Not Guaranteed, which would charm anyone. Even a cyborg replicant hybrid, which is obviously what future-people will be.

  • The Bystander Effect Phenomenon

    Movie Feature | Ali | 23rd May 2012

    There is a new threat to cinema, and it isn't piracy or striking writers or rising production costs – it's movies like What To Expect When You're Expecting. Movie stars, plural, are the problem.

  • Script development, Mel Gibson style

    Movie News | Ali | 19th April 2012

    Audio recording of Mel Gibson ranting at Joe Eszterhas over the alleged non-completion of his script for The Maccabees, as recorded by Eszterhas' son, Nick. "WHO WANTS TO EAT?" indeed (courtesy of TheWrap).

  • The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists

    Movie Review | Ali | 29th March 2012

    There are two things guaranteed in this life: 1) Hugh Grant is so debonair he could charm the pants off a concrete nun, and 2) No one does animation quite like Aardman. Put these two sure things together and it's no surprise that The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists is the first truly great animated film of the year: a painstakingly-modelled laugh riot that boggles the mind while tickling the funnybone.

  • The Redbox Movie Awards 2011: The Oscars for movies rented by idiots

    Movie News | Ali | 30th December 2011

    The DVD renters of America have voted with their wallets, and crowned every film you hated this year as the best in their field. The Redbox Movie Awards 2011: for when even the People's Choice Awards are considered too 'highbrow'.

  • Hugh Grant > Johnny Depp

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 26th October 2011

    New Aardman trailer makes Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides look like Cutthroat Island, and makes Cutthroat Island look like an actual Somali pirate. So you know it's good!

  • Films on TV round-up: robots, vampires and WAR

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 29th May 2011

    By astonishing coincidence, the key themes of this week's three featured films are exactly those of the script I've been trying to get Hollywood interested in: 'Last Cyborg Out of Saigon: The Bloodsuckening'. Spent three days shopping it round Cannes but there wasn't much take-up, if I'm honest. I mean, I'm not saying it's Citizen Kane or anything but you'd think I'd at least get a call-back off Michael Bay, right?
