  • Entourage

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 16th June 2015

    It is hard, as a fan of a TV show, to divorce yourself from your feelings for it and watch the end-of-series movie without prejudice. And probably you shouldn't: it's meant for you, as a sort of valedictory reward for your loyalty. But then releasing it in cinemas suggests a pitch to a wider audience, so while it might satisfy the existing viewer, as Entourage sort-of-just-about does, you wonder who else they're expecting to queue up for tickets.

  • The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone

    Movie Review | Neil | 6th June 2013

    "This is the one, this is the one, this is the one / Oh, this is the one, this is the one I've waited for / Oh this is the one, oh this is the one, this is the one I've waited for / This is the one, oh this is the one, oh this is the one, this is the one I've waited for / This is the one, this is the one, this is the one, oh this is the one, this is the one I've waited for"
    - The Stone Roses, 'This Is The One'

    Makes you think, doesn't it?

  • Spot the odd one out

    Movie News | Ali | 2nd September 2012

    One of these posters for Anna Karenina is not like the others: can you guess which one it is? I know, it's pretty tough.

  • DVD weekly: Entourage and Curb

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 12th June 2012

    Hell, I'd be in an Entou-rage if I couldn't get my hands on Entourage season eight. Yeah, let's face it, I can't write poster quotes.

  • #LFF: The Artist

    Movie Review | Ali | 19th October 2011

    The dog doesn't die. What a relief. After the relentless misery of films like Tyrannosaur and Snowtown, and with We Need To Talk About Kevin still to come, I'm just grateful a film as joyous as The Artist even exists. A lovingly shot black and white homage to silent film, Michel Hazanavicius's evocative picture echoes the classics of the genre and stretches wide over the cinematic horizon like a double rainbow (so intense, all the way across), blasting away the black clouds hanging over the London Film Festival. If it doesn't leave you with a smile plastered all over your stupid face, then you don't have a mouth, in which case, I'm sorry I said your face was stupid.

  • Entourage – season eight, episodes 1–3

    TV Review | Ed Williamson | 10th August 2011

    Let's start the funeral march for Entourage. Should be a pretty star-studded one if nothing else. I just hope Gary Busey doesn't knock over the coffin.

  • Actual Entourage season eight trailer with actual things in it

    TV Video | Ed Williamson | 7th July 2011

    Moving pictures! Depicting actual events from an upcoming season of a TV show! On a trailer, of all places. This could catch on ...

  • Entourage cast hug it out, twitches

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 30th June 2011

    Entourage just shot its last episode EVAH and the cast seemed to spend most of the day tweeting about it on their tweet-machines. Thus, if we copy and paste those tweets and stick them in here a couple of days later, isn't it a bit like we're live-blogging it ourselves? And doesn't that mean we've really got our fingers on the pulse, like CNN or something?

  • Best TV drug addicts

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 8th June 2011

    By which we mean 'worst', obviously, because drugs are BAD. Unless of course you only take enough to have a smashing time, in which case we've very much got five on it. Welcome to Our Drug Hell.

  • Entourage final season: consider yourselves teased

    TV Video | Ed Williamson | 24th May 2011

    Thanks a bunch, HBO. Now I have to write two hundred words about five guys' backs. That's forty words a back.
