  • Man Of Steel

    Movie Review | Ali | 14th June 2013

    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.

  • Superman superpowers we probably won't see in Man Of Steel

    Movie Feature | Matt | 10th June 2013

    Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound! Also able to create miniature versions of himself and kiss like a date rapist!

  • Five possible easter eggs in the latest Man Of Steel trailer

    Movie Feature | Matt | 31st May 2013

    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.

  • Official Man Of Steel synopsis revealed - Ali, avert your eyes!

    Movie News | Luke | 19th August 2011

    As our stalwart leader continues his brave struggle to avoid any and all information regarding Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel Superman movie, the rest of us can sleep soundly tonight, safe in the knowledge that an official plot outline is just one click away. One little, tantalising click...

  • The Superman Project

    Movie Feature | Ali | 8th August 2011

    You may or may not have seen the first official image of Henry Cavill as Superman from The Man Of Steel this week. Here it is. I won't be looking at it, or anything-else Superman-related for that matter, until its release in 2013, as part of a self-enforced Kryptonian diet – an experiment to experience a blockbuster knowing as little about it as possible.

  • Sucker Punch

    Movie Review | Ali | 25th March 2011

    Warning: this is going to be one of those reviews where I basically spend a thousand words completely picking holes in the film, only to give it three stars anyway - feel free to knock off a star if you're not easily impressed by shiny things (I am shallow and a horrible person). It says a lot about Sucker Punch that it can have such hugely obvious flaws and still remain enjoyable for the most part - if it wasn't executed with such panache it would probably qualify as one of the dumbest movies of 2011.

  • Meet your new Superman

    Movie News | Ali | 30th January 2011

    Krypton has a new favourite son and Henry Cavill aka The Unluckiest Man In Hollywood has finally caught a break.

  • 46 seconds of Sucker Punch isn't a bad way to spend a minute

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 24th November 2010

    Got 60 seconds to spare while you're boiling the kettle? You could do worse than watch these five mini-trailers for Sucker Punch, plus you'll have 14 seconds spare to clean yourself up afterwards.

  • Matthew Goode rumoured for Zack Snyder's Superman

    Movie News | Ali | 22nd November 2010

    Because that rumour machine won't keep shovelling shit into itself!

  • Even the Jedi would crave this trailer for Sucker Punch

    Movie Trailer | Luke | 7th November 2010

    After hanging tough with the men in 300, watching the Watchmen in Watchmen and mucking out The Owls of Ga'Hoole, you'd think Zack Snyder would be taking things easy...
