  • Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

    Movie Review | Matt | 9th August 2011

    Since the original Planet of the Apes was released in 1968, it has spawned four sequels, two TV series and a critically disparaged Burton remake. But that all finished 10 years ago so of course it’s time for a prequel/reboot/cash-grab. But can this new film actually offer anything new to a pretty well-exhausted canon, or is it just scraping the bottom of the barrel of monkeys?

  • Brighton Rock

    Movie Review | Anna | 2nd February 2011

    There has to be a very good reason for taking on an adaptation of a beloved book or remaking a classic film - the Coen Brothers doing True Grit makes perfect sense - but I can't fathom the reason for Rowan Joffe reviving Brighton Rock.

    Paul Andrew Williams is only two films into his career, and already it's impossible to predict what he'll do next. His debut movie, London To Brighton, was by all accounts a harrowing and distressing drama, two hours of relentless misery in the company of pimps, whores and frightened little girls. His second movie, The Cottage, ...

  • King Kong

    Movie Review | Ali | 2nd March 2006

    We've become somewhat accustomed to having jolly fat bearded men bring us incredible gifts come Christmas time. Yes, Peter Jackson has become synonymous with fantastic festive films, and although his Hobbit-like rolls of flab have all but disappeared, a few vital things remain; his ability to create 3-hour plus epics of unimagi...
