  • The Muppets

    Movie Review | Ali | 11th February 2012

    I'm not quite old enough to have enjoyed The Muppet Show the first time around, so despite being a fan of Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal and all things Henson, I never really had Kermit and co as cultural touchstones growing up. However, even without that built-in base of nostalgia, I can wholeheartedly recommend The Muppets' big-screen comeback to moviegoers young, old and in between – I can't remember the last time I giggled so long and hard at such wanton silliness.

  • Muppets posters = instant happiness

    Movie News | Ali | 3rd October 2011

    Down about the weather/economy/Italian legal system? Bookmark this page for an instant jolt of happy: four new posters from The Muppets Movie. It's biologically impossible not to smile while viewing them.

  • 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.

    Movie Trailer | Luke | 23rd May 2011

    We could keep up the pretence that this trailer for 'Green With Envy' isn't a viral campaign for The Muppets, but it's Disney who are the deceptive party here, not us.

  • The Fighter

    Movie Review | Matt | 4th February 2011

    Here's another chance to read Matt's review of The Fighter, as it's out today. Boxing puns!

    With Marky Mark's abs on full display in almost every scene, and Christian Bale going all skinny for his art once again, it's easy to see which one is meant to be the titular fighter - or is it? After all, Bale's character is the one struggling with drug addiction throughout the whole film so maybe he is the metaphorical fighter? No, no, Marky Mark's wearing boxing gloves - it's definitely him.

  • Leap Year actor says Leap Year sucks

    Movie News | Ali | 24th February 2010

    Actor Matthew Goode has laid into his new movie a few days before it's even opened in cinemas. Like you were going to go and see it anyway.

  • Amy Adams in Leap Year movie trailer

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 14th November 2009

    Dear Amy Adams. Please do not appear in any more terrible romcoms. If you do not consider changing your course of action, I will be forced to stop stalking you. Yours, Mr X. P.S. You are almost out of mustard.

  • Sunshine Cleaning

    Movie Review | Ali | 24th June 2009

    The easiest and most obvious comparison to make with Sunshine Cleaning is with Little Miss Sunshine - both films come from the same producers, both are feel-good indie comedies, both feature Alan Arkin as a world-weary granddad imparting his wisdom to a young 'un and, um... both have the word 'Sunshine' in the title. That'll do,...
