  • Review: The Irishman is a slow burn deconstruction of mafioso mythos

    Movie Review | Luke Whiston | 14th December 2019

    I wonder if I'll live to be old, and if so, what secrets will I have accumulated by then? I don't mean secrets like things I ate that weren't mine; more like the sort of intimate knowledge that could change the course of history, sunk so deep it weighs down the soul of even the hardest immoral criminals. I guess that's why Martin Scorsese chose to make a three-and-a-half hour film about violent mob assassins involved in some of the most shocking conspiracies the world has ever seen, and not the time I took my girlfriend's Toblerone from the fridge and denied it because I was scared.

  • The Good Dinosaur

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 26th November 2015

    After hitting dizzying new heights with this summer's mind-bending, mind-bonding masterpiece Inside Out, Pixar are now suffering the subsequent downer: not only is The Good Dinosaur one of the bleakest and most relentlessly grim movies they've ever made, it's possibly the lowest high concept movie they've conceived to date. Although there's no denying The Good Dinosaur is the most incredible-looking movie of the year, its beauty hides the scars of a screenplay that has been diced and spliced like dino DNA at Jurassic Park.

  • DVD weekly: True Blood - season four

    TV Feature | Matt Looker | 22nd May 2012

    Hey, it's that thing about the girl who's in love with a vampire. No, no - the OTHER thing. Nope - not that one either. The OTH - oh, just read the title.

  • True Blood trailer surprisingly light on boning

    TV Video | Ed Williamson | 16th May 2012

    Then again, it is only the first of probably two or three, so I guess the others will be crammed full of rimjobs, DPs and Voltaire's Angry Glove.

  • New series of True Blood will feature witches, of course

    TV News | Matt Looker | 27th June 2011

    Because, after vampires and werewolves, witches are next on the list of 'supernatural things everyone has heard of'.

  • True Blood: get your teeth into season four (sorry)

    TV News | Ed Williamson | 17th May 2011

    "Hello? ... Oh, hi. A couple of hundred words about the new True Blood season four promo clip? Sure, it's just ... no, but I've never actually seen it before ... What? A YouTube vid and a couple of half-arsed vampire puns will do the trick? Well then, BAT's no problem! ... What? ... No, you're right, sorry. There was no need to start straight away."

  • You scream, I scream, we all scream for the Scream 4 trailer

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 21st October 2010

    "The rules have changed," says a spotty little Randy substitute. Essentially though, Scream 4 will still be about a masked murdered who likes to stab people. So that's okay then.
